Give Me A Reason Drug Testing Kits

Give Me A Reason


LCHD is now a distribution site for the "Give Me A Reason" Drug Testing Program. The “Give Me A Reason” drug prevention initiative is a voluntary drug testing program designed as a way for our youth to avoid peer pressure and give them a reason to say “no” to drug use. When confronted with drugs, this initiative will give youth an opportunity to say: “I can’t use drugs, my parents drug test me!”

The program is funded by Operation UNITE and Appalachia HIDTA. For more information on the program, visit Operation UNITE's Webpage
