2) Then package as directed on instructions.  Takes about 10 to 15 minutes,or less, to complete the entire process.

Cheating the test:

There are a number of ways people try to cheat drug tests but all fall within two categories.  The first is using someone else’s urine for the test and the second is eating or drinking something that supposedly stops the drug metabolite from triggering a positive result.  Like most things in life, the results from these methods are not as good as advertised by the places selling them.  Yes, you can buy other peoples urine which gets stored in a variety of ways.

The bottom line is this, if you are doing a true random test your teen will not know when to prepare for trying to cheat.  Make a habit of telling them there is going to be a random test and then do it right away.  Have them, take extra clothing off (like jackets or hats), drop any bags or purses and walk them straight to the bathroom and have them give the sample.   Whatever you do, everyone should know in advance what to expect.   Do mock testing if needed so everyone is crystal clear on testing expectations.  If they say they can’t go right now have them drink water and keep them in sight, this is how it’s done in work drug testing.

Some, same sex, parents do stand in the bathroom while the teen is providing the sample and some don’t.  You decide what is right for your family.  If someone is not watching, simply check the bathroom for hidden samples of urine and remove all liquids which could be added to the sample.  You can tape the sink handles and add a color to the toilet water so they don’t get tempted to add water to the sample.  Checking the temperature strip will usually let you know if water was added because all urine is within a certain temperature range.

Most people don’t try to cheat but you should at least be aware of the possibility and never assume it’s above someone to try it.

Involuntary/Covertly Testing:

Parents can collect specimen from the toilet directly. It is easy to do and will avoid any confrontation. Begin by turning off the water to the toilet bowl. A knob is usually located behind the tank. Then flush. Remove as much water as possible. No water is able to flow into the reservoir portion of the bowl. Next, when your child goes to the bathroom and no water flows into the bowl, you will probably hear, “Hey, the toilet doesn’t work.” This is your opportunity to go and get a urine sample from the reservoir. After you have collected your sample, open the water control knob and flush. You now have your sample to test.

We recommend using this only when your child refuses to test and you have a real concern for their safety.  Honest communication is the best way so use this as a backup only if needed.
