TITLE: “Home Drug Testing: The first step in detecting adolescent drug abuse and stepping onto the road to recovery”
SPECIAL GUEST: Tim Chapman
Tim Chapman explores with our audience home drug testing, and why it is important to look beyond marijuana in today’s pill popping society. Tim is a strong supporter of the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit, as an effective part of the solution to detecting and fixing the problems of young child, teenager, or young adult drug and alcohol abuse. Too many parents are relying on their noses in an attempt to detect marijuana and alcohol, but a human’s nose cannot detect the silent killers that are opiates like painkillers and heroin. Tim believes dialogue, along with frequent random home drug testing is the difference maker in raising our children drug-free through adolescence.
