Children, Teens and Young Adults under the influence of drugs can mask the use - even in a faith related atmosphere. While it is important for moms and dads to do all they can to warn their children about the trap of teen substance abuse, there are situations where a son or daughter will make foolish choices that lead quickly down the path of addiction.

These percentages translate to approximately 3 million past month smokers, including almost 1 million daily smokers among youths.In 2000, more than 2 million youths aged 12 to 17 reported using inhalants at least once in their lifetime.Across the country, teens and young adults enjoy all-night dance parties known as "raves" and increasingly encounter more than just music. Dangerous substances known collectively as club drugs-including Ecstasy, GHB, and Rohypnol-are gaining popularity. These drugs aren't "fun drugs" - they are "club drugs".These drugs may be found in the homes and carried to the churches and other faith-based centers.The Drug Free Faith-Based Program is designed to challenge organizations and centers to partner with families, businesses and communities to sustain drug free programs that empower faith inspired children/teens to say "No" to drugs - with confidence. Courses are "age-appropriate".A portion of funds will be returned as a "gift" offering towards a community project.MentorMe® Drug Testing Services and its team of Subject Matter Experts bring to this training sundry years of training, certification and experience in Substance Abuse and Recovery, Mental Health and Legal practices.For assistance in creating and/or modifying a Drug Free Faith-Based Program Policy, contact MentorMe® Drug Testing Services.
