WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) - Federal law enforcement officials have unveiled a drug prevention initiative in Ohio County.

U.S. Attorney William Ihlenfeld II said Tuesday that drug testing kits will be made available for free to Ohio County residents.

Results from the saliva-based drug tests are available within 20 minutes. The test screens for a variety of substances including marijuana, opioid painkillers, stimulants, tranquilizers, cocaine, methadone, and PCP. The kits also contain a stamped envelope to voluntarily report test results. No personal information is collected.

The kits are provided through a partnership with the Appalachia High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area program. They will be distributed at nine locations in the county, including at the Board of Education office and Wheeling Park High School.
