Substance addiction is a growing problem in the United States. Every day, teenagers begin abusing substances for the first time. Sadly, every day, people lose their lives to drug overdoses. Whether you’re preventing drug abuse at home or living with an addict, 3DK-9 offers residential canine security services to bring issues of substance abuse and addiction to light.
Why Do I Need Residential Canine Security Services?
Sometimes, substance abuse and addiction aren’t obvious right away. And, by the time it is obvious, it can be too late. The sooner you identify substance addiction in someone you love, the more likely they are to have a successful recovery.
Substance abuse has also become much more discreet in recent years. Strong opiates, like fentanyl, can take the form of plain-looking painkillers. Paraphernalia used for smoking marijuana can even look like cigarettes. Even if you’re attentive to your loved one’s activities and purchased, it may not be immediately obvious that anything is wrong.
Are You Living With An Addict? These are Common Signs of Substance Abuse or Illegal Activity.
If you can’t identify the paraphernalia, there may be other signs that your loved one is struggling with substance abuse. Some of the most common signs include:
- Poor performance at work or school
- Drastic weight gain or loss
- Defensiveness or secrecy
- Sudden financial problems
- Losing interest in formerly enjoyed hobbies and pastimes
Also, as a parent, you may simply have a gut feeling about your child’s behavior. If you fear that your child is involved with other illegal activities, we can also sweep your home for contraband, such as firearms. Any of these are viable reasons for residential canine security services.
At 3DK-9, we work to make the process as swift and discreet as possible. We will not enter any residence without written permission from the homeowner or legal representative of the property. Additionally, we ask that all family members (including pets) are away from the residence during the sweep.
During our residential canine security services, we ask that the homeowner remains with the 3DK-9 team during the sweep. Our team will not enter any room without the permission of the homeowner.
If one of our dogs detects narcotics or paraphernalia during a sweep, the handler will verbally inform the homeowner and mark the spot. However, our canines will not seek out the drugs nor will our team dispose of the substances. We leave this decision to the discretion of the homeowner in the event that additional measures or searches are necessary.
