The Tomah Police Department and TestMyTeen.com have entered into a partnership offering free drug test kits to parents in the Tomah area. Concerned, involved parents are the strongest deterrent kids have for staying off drugs, but peer pressure to experiment with drugs is one of the biggest stumbling blocks kids face. To help both parents and teens with the battle against drug involvement, the Tomah Police Department is implementing a new “Test My Teen” drug-prevention program that is designed to keep parents in touch with what is really going on with their teens and give teens a way to stop peer pressure dead in its tracks when friends urge them to experiment with drugs.
The program allows parents to obtain one free drug test kit by doing the following:
- Visit www.testmyteen.com and click on “products”
- Add the Noble 10 Drug Home Test Kit to your shopping basket
- Enter this special voucher code 7A4Z8 when prompted during checkout
- The cost of the kit will drop to $0.00 and all that will remain are shipping and handling charges (Normally $6.95)
The kits are shipped directly to your residence using non-descript packaging that allows you to preserve your family’s privacy. Parents without internet access can pick up a printed voucher at the Tomah Police Department. This program provides families with an effective tool in the fight against drug experimentation and use. When teens’ so-called friends pressure them to experiment with drugs, they can tell their friends, “No thanks, my parents test me.” That takes the pressure off teens to defend their choice for not using. This program also provides a way for teens previously caught using drugs to rebuild trust with their parents. Parents can know for sure if their teen is telling the truth when they say, “No, I am no longer using.” Parents who would like to know more about the Test My Teen program can go to the program’s website at www.testmyteen.com. Once there, they will find the answers to many of their questions, informational videos and test instructions.
Additional questions about the program can be directed to Lieutenant Scott Holum at 608-374-7409.
