Drug Testing

Prevention, Treatment and Safety

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 addicted and provide referral for treatment.
