The purpose of drug testing in schools is to deter students from misusing drugs, 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. The DrugSAFE Program provides on-campus drug testing services to meet these goals.
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.
The DrugSAFE Program provides education to administrators, parents and the community as a crucial tactic in preventing drugs and treating addiction.
