Amphetamine: Overachieversí Drug of Choice

The pressure to achieve in school is higher today than it ever has been before. With the cost of college increasing and funding for scholarships decreasing, students must stay at the top of their game in order to keep up in a competitive academic environment. Unfortunately, with higher standards come more work, and with more work come later hours of study and homework, which bring on fatigue. When test day rolls around, students have to be alert and fresh. With so much riding on the results of college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT, some kids will do whatever it takes to get ahead; and for many that includes amphetamines.

Amphetamines increase energy levels, concentration and motivation, which can help in studying. With the increased availability to teenagers through ADHD prescriptions, drugs such as Adderal, Dexedrine, and Desoxyn. Between 16 and 29 percent of students who are prescribed stimulants report diverting their prescriptions. Approximately 15 percent of 10th and 12th graders have used amphetamines. In a study at San Francisco General Hospital, 25 percent of seizures were found to be caused by amphetamine use. The long-term effects are also disconcerting. A study of more than 3 million people between the age of 18 and 44 years old hospitalized in Texas, and published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence, found a relationship between a diagnosis of amphetamine abuse and heart attacks.

Not only can amphetamines keep kids alert for tests, but also for sporting events and late night parties. Though at least one study has found otherwise, users report increased performance levels with more vigorous and longer play. With these perceived benefits, even the most trustworthy, high achieving teens are tempted to experiment with these dangerous drugs.

Many parents have decided to turn to home drug test kits to protect their children from these dangers. Teens understand a drug test program is about prevention, more than anything, and lets them know they are not the only kid being drug tested.†A parent will have an easier time approaching teens with a program and feel more confident because there is a plan of action.†A drug test program is less about catching your teen, and more about prevention.†While other drug tests only deal with getting a result, the Drug Test Club offers advice, whatever the outcome, on how to move forward.
