Chances are that if your child is using drugs, he or she may show several other risky actions. These actions can include low academic performance, risky sexual activity, delinquent behavior, and unsafe driving habits. These behaviors can result in sexual diseases, unplanned pregnancies, violence, injury, and DEATH.
If you suspect your child of drug use the Danville Police Department cannot tell you whether or not to drug test your children. If you wish to do so, we strongly recommend that that you take them to their family doctor to be tested.
If you choose not to do so for whatever the reason, we want the opportunity to give parents another option.
We are pleased to offer FREE, CONFIDENTIAL, drug test kits to residents of Danville Borough. You will need to show proof of residency and NO OTHER QUESTIONS WILL BE ASKED! This test screens for 5 different illicit drugs. You will also receive brochures regarding drug use. These include, "Keeping your Kids DRUG -FREE", "Suspect Your Teen is Using Drugs or Drinking?" and "Child welfare and substance abuse disorders - A guide to recovery for families and children". If you reside outside of the Borough, you can purchase a kit for a fee of $5.00.
Our local drug store chains sell home drug testing kits that screen for one, two, and three different drugs and range in price from $15 for a single drug and $30 for a 3-screen kit.
If you don't think your child is using drugs but merely want to keep a kit on top of your refrigerator as a deterrent to keep your child from experimenting and avoid possible addiction in the first place, we strongly suggest it!
The purpose of this program is to get drug users the help they need and to deter others from using!
