Secondary Schools are experiencing a greater awareness of drug and alcohol abuse by their students both in and out of school. Part of the school’s policy on managing this trend may be the requirement to have the student’s urine tested for drugs especially cannabis and occasionally methamphetamine (P). This could be for counselling and compliance reasons, especially where an agreement has been developed between the student, their parents or guardians and the school. This non-punitive approach is proving to be successful within schools where a supportive counselling programme has been adopted with students who have been identified as either having an established drug habit or are experimenting with drugs. A robust, but non-evidential (cannot be used for legal purposes) process for this type of testing has been developed by LabPLUS, Auckland City Hospital. Screening test will include processes designed to eliminate cheating and a kit that will facilitate the simple collection of a sample within the school.
