WALTHAM, Mass. First Check Diagnostics launched its latest parental tool to help address drug abuse head on — the First Check Breath Alcohol Test — at the ECRM Home Health Care conference in Chicago last week.
The new test, which retails for a suggested $9.99 and includes two tests, is a breathalyzer that estimates blood-alcohol content as low as 0.2%, and marks a new diagnostics option for parents concerned over possible teenage drug and/or alcohol abuse.
In addition to providing parents with a testing solution, First Check is also one of the corporate sponsors of Project 7th Grade, a national drug prevention program aimed at parents of middle school students. Project 7th Grade helped introduce the concept of home drug testing as a prevention tool for parents and continues to educate parents about how to create a proactive family drug prevention plan.
