NEW…. Give Me a Reason(GMAR) FREE Drug Testing Kit…. Full 12 Panel Test
Stand in the Gap Coalition is a distribution site for GMAR kits… Other sites available; contact SIGCO.
“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!”
“Give Me A Reason” will provide free saliva-based drug testing kits to parents or caregivers. The non-invasive test is then given within the privacy of your home with results* in approximately 10 minutes.
The kit tests for a variety of drugs including: Amphetamines (Adderall, Meth, Ecstasy), Buprenorphine, Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium, Roofies), Cocaine, Methamphetamine, Methadone, Opiates/Morphine (Codeine, Heroin), Oxycodone (Hydrocodone), Phencyclidine (PCP), and Marijuana (THC), Alcohol (ALC) Obtained from; https://operationunite.org/youth-initiatives/drug-test-kits/
What is the Stand in the Gap Coalition?
The combined efforts of many different community volunteers, Christians groups, local churches, and civic organizations.

Living In Recovery IS Possible….

“I have a new way to live. I no longer have to make decisions that get me in the hospital, jail or almost dead. I can live a productive life, the life that God intended for me to have. I grew up in addiction in my home, and family. No place was safe from addiction. Today, I make my own choices based on what God would have me to do. I am no longer a slave to my past, my raising or my surroundings” Megan H.
