Farmington Police Dept. and parents unite against substance abuse!
Think your teen may be “experimenting” with drugs, alcohol or tobacco? It’s best to solve problems before they occur or get much worse. Unfortunately, “friends” often try harder to make kids who say “no” to drugs, alcohol and tobacco feel like outcasts. Home testing kits have emerged that protect privacy and provide kids with a socially acceptable excuse, “My parents test me.” For years, police have been the first to know when local kids used drugs while their parents were often the last to know. Now there is a way to REVERSE that trend!
Farmington Police Dept. recently announced a new alliance with TestMyTeen.com, an organization that has donated free home drug test kit vouchers to be shared anonymously with parents who need them.
Kids need a “socially acceptable” way to say no to drugs, alcohol, and tobacco… so we’re giving them one. “My parents test me.”
Our approach helps parents protect their model student or troubled teen from the dangers of substance abuse, without sacrificing privacy. It also provides a pathway for parents and teens to rebuild trust and repair damaged relationships caused by previous drug usage.
SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITIES WIN:
In the absence of drugs, communities can look forward to better, safer schools and neighborhoods.
