San Diego, CA November 7, 2006 - TestCountry, a distributor of home-based medical test kits and diagnostics, will distribute FDA Cleared urine drug of abuse test kits to underserved members of the drug abuse population, through its "TC-Drug Prevention Program". The purpose of the program is to provide greater access to urine drug testing for teenagers and adults with drug abuse problems.

According to the 2004 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, more than 11 million people have tried MDMA (ecstasy), more than 11 million have tried methamphetamine, and more than 23 million have tried LSD (acid) at least once. Nearly 45% of U.S. teenagers try marijuana before finishing high school. Some of the side effects of these drugs include changes in brain function, coma and seizures, memory and learning problems, distorted perception, and difficulty thinking and solving problems. Through "TC-Drug Prevention Program", any drug abuse educator and parent who requests participation in the program will be sent a package of 10 urine test kits at no cost or obligation.

The urine drug tests can detect up to 10 different substances including AMP, BAR, BZO, COC, mAMP, MTD, OPI, PCP, TCA and THC. The package will also include an educational "Parents Guide to Stop Teenage Drug" use. This Guide was specifically designed by TestCountry to assist parents to learn about drug prevention among kids and teenagers. "TestCountry is proud to support non-profit organizations, institutions, and parents that support the cause of drug prevention among teenagers and troubled individuals," said Vice President of TestCountry, Nepi Ilgaz. "We will continue to support charitable organizations and parents through our "TC-Drug Prevention Program".

Individuals interested in participating in the program should contact Zeynep Ilgaz, 858.430.2800 ext 112 or email nilgaz@testcountry.com
