Could your kids be at risk for substance abuse?
Families strive to find the best ways to raise their children to live happy, healthy, and productive lives. Parents are often concerned about whether their children will start or are already using drugs such as tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, and others, including the abuse of prescription drugs. Research supported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has shown the important role that parents play in preventing their children from starting to use drugs.
The NETI APP (Emerging Drug Trends – a HIDTA Public Application) for Cell Phones is now available on both the IOS platform as well as the Android.
The APP is designed to describe current drugs which are trending upwards with real-time information along with simplistic instant access. The emerging drugs are defined and provided with interactive search parameters along with photos depicting how they may be found at the street level.
The APP is not designed to be a PDR, but only for current trending drugs or drug patterns of concern. The APP content will change as the threat changes by including new drugs while decreasing trends may be deleted.
While all drugs may not be trending in a particular area, the information is based upon national trends.
The APP is a law enforcement tool as well as a tool for others such as PTAs, Civic Groups, or any other entity that would find such information valuable. The information is not law enforcement sensitive. Therefore, there is no need to vet users.
Loading the APP onto a cell phone is easily accomplished via the respective APP location delivery system available to anyone with a mobile phone. There are two systems available for delivery, and the instructions are contained below:
