“Those experiencing the harmful effects of drug abuse can lose their family, job, home and material possessions. Now with roadside drug testing on the horizon, a drug abuser can face serious legal consequences,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.

As reported by the Charleston Daily Mail (8/7), in their news story, Lawmakers Question Drug Tracking Program, West Virginia's new pseudoephedrine tracking system has already achieved outstanding results. Thousands of illegal purchases have been prevented right at the cash register, according to the West Virginia Retailers Association. West Virginia adopted the National Precursor Log Exchange, or NPLEx, through a real-time tracking system for pseudoephedrine sales, used by 28 states nationwide.

"The minute you purchase pseudoephedrine and they hit the button to register that sale, it's entered into the NPLEx," said Bridget Lambert, Retailers Association president.

As well as the system has been working, drug abuse is in West Virginia still is a big problem. Many of these drug abusers would have benefited by receiving the type of professional care provided by Harbor Village, a premier detox center located in Miami, Florida.

Located in sunny South Florida, Harbor Village enables each client to experience private drug treatment in an upscale, state-of-the art environment. From day one, each client experiences luxury accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite complete with satellite television, an acre of scenic outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage, yoga and acupuncture, nutritious, gourmet dining and a personalized program designed for each client's specific problem.

According to Lawmakers Question Drug Tracking Program, Pseudoephedrine purchases are limited to 3.6 grams per day in West Virginia, 7.2 grams per month and 48 grams per year. According to data from NPLEx, the system stopped the illegal purchase of 9,965 boxes of pseudoephedrine between Jan. 1 and June 30, 2013.

"I think 9,900 boxes for six months shows that it's working," Lambert said. "NPLEx has the ability to be a very effective tool for law enforcement if they use it correctly."

"Those experiencing the harmful effects of drug abuse can lose their family, job, home and material possessions. Now with roadside drug testing on the horizon, a drug abuser can face serious legal consequences," said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
