What is drug abuse and how can it be detected?

Drug abuse or drug addiction is when a person does not have the ability to control the amount of drugs they are consuming, despite knowing the dangers the drugs cause. Usually it will start as something experimental in a social environment, or initially may be used as painkillers after an injury. It’s important to detect the early stages of drug abuse so that the person can get immediate help.  

One way of detecting drug abuse is through drug tests. There are many different kinds of drug tests on the market that help to detect whether or not someone is abusing a drug. The method you want to use and the drug you’re trying to detect will determine which drug test you will choose to be administered.  

The 12-panel drug test is one of the top selling home drug tests used to test 12 different drugs, including painkillers. This test can give you quick results, in 5 min or less, and can be found in most local pharmacies. Most people that suspect a family member has fallen into drug abuse may use this test to administer at home.
