KNOW INC. has developed a home drug test, cleverly named KNOW, that magnetically sticks to any refrigerator. Every time a teenager walks into the kitchen, he is immediately reminded that his parents “KNOW” and have the ability to drug test him at any time.
KNOW Drug Testing was developed by Doug Chinchar and Kendall Almerico.
Chinchar put together a team of professionals in both the drug testing world and the real world of parenting, to develop this unique deterrent. Chinchar’s goal is to have KNOW on every refrigerator of every household with children. “If that happens I KNOW that parents and kids are talking about drugs. I KNOW that more kids will be saying KNOW to drugs!"
Kendall Almerico said "KNOW gives parents the chance to talk to their teenagers about drugs. And every expert agrees, communication with your children is the key to preventing drug use."
“KNOW Drug Testing will not only bring parents and children together to talk about drugs now, but will also prevent possible problems in the future. KNOW is the product of the future” said Eclectic Media Productions Owner Shannon Rose.
Teenage drug use is on the rise!
• More than 33% of 8th graders have tried illegal drugs.
• By the time they are high school seniors, almost 60% of all teens have used illegal drugs at least once.
Given these frightening statistics, shouldn’t parents' drug test their teenagers at home?
Chinchar is available for individual or weekly telephone interviews on your program. Each week, Chinchar will bring a new topic affecting teenagers and drugs to the forefront. For example, next week’s story involves “cheese” a deadly form of heroin that has killed 21 teenagers in Dallas this year and is widespread across the country. Full stories of each new topic are available at our website.
Douglas Chinchar is available for radio, TV or print interviews.

About Douglas Chinchar
KNOW is the brainchild of Douglas Chinchar, a drug testing specialist who has worked in the field of “on the job” safety for many years. Chinchar knows that “at home" safety is just as important as what he was preventing on the jobsite.
Chinchar not only is part of one of the most successful drug testing companies in the Southeastern United States, S-1 Safety 1st, but he has also dealt with kids and teenagers, both as a father and as a coach for 18 years.
“I got tired of hearing parents say ‘Not my kid’ and then, after something horrible happening to their child, hearing that same parent say, "If only I had talked with my kid.’” Chinchar said. “So I decided to develop a home drug test that would help parents talk to their kids about drugs.”
Many years ago, Chinchar also learned firsthand the damage that drugs and alcohol can cause. Chinchar had his promising athletic career cut short when he was severely injured by a 15 year old drunk driver, causing Chinchar to have career ending back surgery.
Given this experience, and the life changing birth of his first daughter, Chinchar knew that KNOW must be created and made available to parents around the country. He also knew it must be easy to use, affordable, and have a unique way of acting as a deterrent. “My idea was to add a magnet to the Know box, so parents would put the test right on the refrigerator, where it acts as a deterrent, and a conversation starter, every single day.”
