The purpose of drug testing in schools is to deter students from using drugs by giving them a motivator to resist peer pressure, to provide early intervention and counseling for students who have started using drugs, and to identify students who are abusing and provide referral for treatment.
Policy Development & Implementation
Ohio law requires schools to educate students on the dangers of drug and alcohol use, and the most successful districts take it one step further by implementing a drug testing program as well. The DrugSAFE Program works with school boards and administrators to create and implement effective drug policies.
Education & Awareness
The DrugSAFE Program provides education to administrators, parents and the community as a crucial tactic in preventing drug misuse and treating addiction.
