Drug test kit initiative
The “Give Me A Reason!” drug prevention initiative is a voluntary drug testing program designed as a way for our youth to avoid peer pressure and give them a reason to say “no” to drug use. When confronted with drugs, this initiative will give youth an opportunity to say: “I can’t use drugs, my parents drug test me!”
