Student Drug Testing Program

Dope, tar, chiva, diesel and D block. These are different slang words used to refer to heroin, which used to be known as an outcast drug, but not anymore.

There has been a recent alarming rise in the amount of teens and young adults who are involved with heroin, particularly in the suburbs. Kids are either doing opiates in pill form called roxicodone (roxys) and oxycotin (oxys) or heroin.

It has become widely accepted among teens. It used to be a dirty drug, but it’s not anymore. It shows no discrimination or social boundaries. When people normally think of heroin use, they usually picture people living in cities and bad neighborhoods. In recent years, suburban youth have been widely known to abuse prescription drugs, but there has been a huge shift from pills to heroin.

The price of heroin has come down significantly—you can now get it for $4-5—and you don’t have to go all the way to the city anymore to get it. It’s available in places you wouldn’t expect like your community or school. Unfortunately the trend keeps increasing in popularity, and with the easy access teens and young adults have to it, it doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

The truth of the matter is, once you get involved with heroin—you have to fight your way out.
