As reported by Natural News (8/8), in their news story, High school to force students to undergo hair analysis to reveal alcohol consumption, recently a Chicago-area high school, St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights, announced that in addition to drug screening, the school will add alcohol testing to this year, over "concerns" about underage drinking.
In the United States, alcohol abuse affects people of all ages and many addicts have been checking into 24/7 medically supervised detox centers such as South Florida's Harbor Village. At Harbor Village, an alcoholism treatment center, clients with alcohol issues begin a proven step-by-step program to help them eliminate their addiction. Each client enjoys a luxury, state-of-the art environment where they are welcomed with upscale accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite with satellite television, 30,000 square feet of outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage, yoga and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining and the personalized support of a caring, attentive staff.
According to High school to force students to undergo hair analysis to reveal alcohol consumption, CBS Chicago reports that hair samples of each student will be tested to determine whether a student has used alcohol in the past 90 days. The school's administrators say that since 2007, they have tested the student for drugs and less than 1% have come back positive.
"We're adding this test because we care about our kids and we want them to be the best God created them to be," Corey Brost, St. Viator President, told local media.
"It's a great vehicle for them to understand that if you're not going to be accountable to your parents, you're going to be accountable to somebody," said Joe Farwell, a parent of a student at St. Viator.
"Kids fear getting suspensions from school or detentions even and maybe what their parents will do, if they find out they're getting caught, so I think it actually will make a difference," said St. Viator student Miguel Aguilar.
"Alcohol drug abuse is a serious problem that can destroy your health and cause you to lose everything. Contact a detox center such as Harbor Village and receive the care you need," said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
