    Default Used methadone 12 panel hair drug test

    I used methadone 5 times in last month ( about 20 mg each time) and now I just found out I have to take a pre employment 12 panel hair follicle drug test. I thought it was only gonna be the standard 5 panel wen I first took the methadone now I'm screwed. Ill probably hav to take the test 2 weeks to a month from now. If I only took a low dose roughly once a week the past month low enough to pass, or is there any way I can pass it using toxin shampoo, viniger, or readyin?

    I use to be a DON in medical setting. I pissed tested nurses all the time. I found the hair test the most accurate and not beatable. Urine is easy to beat but employers getting wiser as the government demands.

    Best thing to do is try and postpone..... really best thing is to not use dope. Will end on one of three ways which I am sure you've heard this enough.

    Good luck
    omission is not honesty, only a different way of lying.

    Thanx I don't use dope I used methadone cuz I thought it would come up in the hair test like everyone says. Then I found out after the interview from my friend that works there that its a 12 panel not a 5 panel.... It probably won't be for a month cuz they hav a lot of interviews. I'm being completely honest no other drugs in past 3 months only methadone done 20mgs once a week 5 times in last month

    Hey O,

    For me methadone is dope. Just a longer acting dope that sticks to the receptors longer. I hear from addicts all the time,"oh, Im not getting high, just taking my meth." IN my mind I am saying... poor guy, gonna have a rough road ahead. So.. just semantics... methadone, dope, opiates.

    Good luck

    yeah, truer words were never spoken Bonita. Recovery, for me, was very much about stopping the drugs, but also stopping the denial - the lies you tell yourself to avoid the uncomfortable truth. Methadone maintenance keeps them going and your habit growing.

    I think those hair tests can go back quite a ways. I think the labs normally test back about 3 months... So anything you've done in the last 3 months is going to show up. I think a hair test can go back even longer if the lab chooses though. I am not positive or anything, that is just what I have heard & read. Good luck!

    Doesnt it depend on how long your hair is? I heard that a strand of hair is like a timeline of up to 6 months.
    In other words, say you smoked some weed 4 months ago, it would show up more towards the tip of the hair strand, and if you didnt use anything again until say some opiates one month ago....then there should be a neutral place in the middle of the strand and then an opiate positive one closer towards the root. Does that make sense?

    I dont know if this info is accurate or not, but if it is then 'time' followed by a haircut will be your best bet.

    And by the way, I dont know anything about your drug using history but as your post reveals, it is affecting your life in a negative way and will just keep getting worse as time goes on.
    Some hit bottom sooner than others but the opiate will eventually knock you right down to your knees where you'll find yourself seeking life or death,...it always does.

    Thanx guys I know it may seem like I'm in denial but I don't have a habit (yet) but ur all right I can't mess up and use this **** anymore not worth it. Anyways I don't know what type of hair test I called my friend that works there and he said he doesn't know... My dads been workin there his whole life so i can reject it and go back wen it opens up agin thier hiring a lot of peeps. He told me he asked around and they only go back 3 months. Even if it was six months I'd pass I don't like to smoke weed unless I'm at a party on the back yard it makes me slow.. I used the methadone this past month cuz recently I suck at Havin sex I don't know y I'm 27 I used to be a champ so I heard opiates help so I knew I had to pass a drug test and thought methadone isn't tested in most companies. I don't know how to find out witch type of hair test they use. The dt will be after the first so I hav time to think if I should go for it.

    Hey..

    Trust me, I am not judging. I don't have a leg to stand on to judge anyone else on what they put in their bodies. I just wanted to clarify some misconception. I used dope for a long time. I PROMISE you. It will take away any sex drive you have much less able to get it up. ( sorry for bluntness). I went over 10 yrs not even masturbating due to opiates. So PLs... rethink the reasons you put anything in your system. Don't believe what folks tell you... look it up for yourself.

    I wish you luck in job seeking.

    Thanks when I get a job I'm goin to the doctors to help me with 2 pump chump disorder. It's not worth it I love my life too much to throw away. I never take good advice as judging and I admire you joining this site after what you hav been through to take time out of your life just to help people with addiction problems. The world needs more people like you to tell ur story of addiction so that others don't feel alone with thier problems.

    thank you for caring and good luck with your recovery
