Hi there ~
I understand your concerns. The addition to heroin
is treated with the use of methadone
. The methadone is also an opioid
and it is used to detox patients from the addiction to the opioid medication. To answer your question you will test positive for opioids when you take the medication for any length of time and remains in your systems for about 4-7 days after your last intake of methadone. You however may not be in trouble if you feel like you are using the medications to
get treatment for addiction from methadone and get a letter from you treating physician attesting to the same.
I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
