What the Expert Says:

The first thing you should do is take your son to your doctor for a check up.  You want to make sure he has not overdosed or that there is no damage to his internal organs.  The doctor may be also be able to test him for drugs.  If the doctor is not able to do drug testing in their office, they should be able to provide you with referrals for drug testing locations in your city.

You can purchase drug testing kits which can be done at home, but if this is the first time you have found drugs on your son, it might be a better option to take him to a clinic or drug testing center to be evaluated.  That way, you and your son can receive counseling and also receive education about the drugs he is using.  The in-home kits are good for parents who are knowledgeable about the drugs the child is using and have the resources available to them for counseling and treatment.

If you do not have a doctor, call 211 on your phone for referrals for drug testing centers.  211 is a free information and referral service available in most locations to assist callers in finding help for all kinds of issues or problems.  You can also try looking in your phone book or search on the Internet for drug testing locations in your city and state.

Parenting teenagers is not easy, and when children use drugs it can be very confusing and scary.  Our Hotline is for parents like you who need someone to listen and support them.  Our trained counselors can help you make the best decisions on what you can do to help your son.  We can also provide you with referrals in your local area from our large data base.  We are here 24 hours, 7 days a week, toll-free at:  1-800-448-3000.  You can also go to our websites listed below for more parenting information.   We are here for you and your child.  Please remember that you don’t have to go through this alone!

Cynthia, Crisis Counselor

There are plenty of test kits on the market.
Here is one I found: http://www.dutygearstore.com/niktestdlsd-p-1577.html

If you enter 'LSD Test Kit' in Google search you'll find many other similar products.

I think if you let your son know that you are going to buy one of these kits he might change his mind and confess (assuming it's really what you suspect it is.)

You'll find more useful information on youth substance abuse and how to deal with it here: http://www.education.com/topic/teen-alcohol-abuse/

Hi,

Please discuss this matter with your son's pediatrician as soon as possible. Given the health dangers of LSD, it's important that you have your son examined and counseled by his doctor in person.

I also suggest that you call Boys Town National Hotline to talk to a counselor who specializes in teen issues: 1-800-448-3000 Their toll-free hotline is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

Thank you for asking your question, and continuing to be vigilant and involved in your son's well-being!

A few things about lsd...

1. 500 hits is an ENOURMOUS amount. So much in fact that it's unlikely that even people with a good connection could get that much. Plus it would cost around 2500 to 10000 at 5 or 20 per hit.

2. ...Overdosing on LSD requires grams, which would be hundreds of thousands of doses given how active it is. In short, it is practically impossibe to od on LSD because you won't be able to buy that much, or afford it.

3. "damage to his internal organs"? From LSD? Umm... no. It's not poisonous.

I'm assuming you don't trust me. Why should you? You could of course read up on LSD given that your kid may be using it. An please, use actual informative sources, not websites that are either explicitly for or against it. LSD is an interesting substance with both dangers and benefits - both are exaggerated.
