In 2006, 21% of 8th graders, 36% of 10th graders, and 48% of 12th graders reported having taken illicit drugs at some point, according to the annual Monitoring the Future survey of 50,000 students in those grades in more than 400 schools nationwide funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
Today more and more parents have the ability to implement drug testing policies within their households, helping deter their own children from becoming part of this statistic. DrugConfirm test results are instant, so parents can find out right away whether or not their loved ones are using. They also have the option to send the urine sample to the lab for a confirmation screening for extra validation.
Two-thirds of parents would ask their teenage son or daughter to take a home drug test as a means of keeping them away from drugs, according to a 2006 survey of 2,064 parents around the country by Washington, D.C.
Parents are the number one deterrent to a teen's decision to use drugs. Studies have shown that the average age of first drug use is 13; more than one-third of teens have used drugs, including almost one in six middle school students and 30% of their high school counterparts reporting marijuana use; and 13% of high school students report using drugs such as cocaine, crack or ecstasy.
