The Porter County Substance Abuse Council has drug testing kits available for Porter County parents of minor children.
Kits are $5 and test opiates, cocaine, amphetamines, benzodiazepines, methamphetamines, and marijuana.
The testing set that the Council sells requires a minimum sample of urine as noted on the side of the cup.
There are 5 validity tests – ensure that the sample urine is valid by reading the results of all 5.
Samples can be altered via substitution, diluting or adding adulterants that mask the drug being tested.
If any of the invalid results occur you have a bad sample – throw out and start over.
Follow the 5 steps on the How To Conduct the Test to read the test. Be sure and take the cup to a private room and close the door (your bedroom).
Wait the allotted time, read the results and determine what you will say to your child.
