Mitigating Addiction, Overdoses and Teen Drug Abuse at Home

With the increase in overdoses in South Florida, you cannot put a price on peace of mind. In 2015 alone, there were over 50,000 overdose deaths related to drug abuse and over 100,000 non lethal overdoses reported. Our dogs will help ensure your home is drug-free, or help you identify if an addiction problem, including teen drug abuse, exists in your home. Let our drug sweep K9s do the job for you! 

Proactive measures are key to saving lives! Small or large, we will thoroughly search your home as well as your surrounding property, including vehicles. We are able to search your home without being overly intrusive, as our K9’s are able to pick up scents through sniffing without disturbing the house, or making an individual aware a search was conducted.

Many parents have difficulty believing their children may be using drugs or alcohol, but the recent statistics paint a terrifying picture. Unfortunately, teen drug abuse is very common among high schools across the country which is why we believe in regular school sweeps to deter drug dealing, use, and abuse in our homes.

Recent Teen Drug Abuse Studies Have Shown:

  • 35.1% of 12th graders have used an illegal substance in the past year

  • 21.3% of 12th graders have used an illegal substance in the last 30 days

  • 16.6% of 10th graders have used an illegal substance in the last 30 days

  • 6% of 12th graders say they use an illegal substance every day

  • 81% of 12th graders say it would be easy to get an illegal substance at school

  • Only 32% of 12th graders feel that regular marijuana use is harmful

Nearly a quarter of American high school students use at least one type of illicit drug. According to a recent survey from National Institute of Drug Abuse, the next most popular drugs in high schools are:

  • Amphetamines, Adderall, opioid painkillers, marijuana, tranquilizers, cough medicine, Vicodin, hallucinogens, OxyContin, sedatives,Ecstasy (MDMA), LSD, cocaine, and other narcotics.

High school students can find drugs through friends, word-of-mouth and even on the Internet. Most kids needn’t look any further than their school — nearly 44% of high school students know a classmate who sells drugs. When asked which drugs are sold:

  • 91% said marijuana

  • 24% said prescription drugs

  • 9% said cocaine

  • 7% said ecstasy

If substances are found by our canine, we will alert you to their presence and assist with disposal.
