Drug Tests: Are They Worth It?

Should You Drug Test Your Child?

Growing up is never easy, and being a parent these days presents a whole host of challenges. Peer pressure to experiment with drugs can be fierce and difficult to resist, but we love our children and we want to keep them safe.

As a parent searching for answers, you may be considering drug testing with the expectation that testing will discourage your son or daughter from experimenting with substances, hopefully preventing a world of hurt down the road. If you suspect your child is already using drugs, you may assume that testing will discourage experimental use before it escalates into serious use or addiction.

Testing your child can make a lot of sense for worried parents. After all, testing kits are readily available, relatively inexpensive and easy to use. However, many experts recommend against drug testing our kids unless it is done by a medical professional, and only when it is truly warranted.
