I wanted to know about Saliva Swab Drug testing, please give me your suggestion

I am being drug tested by Safeway grocery store as a new employee. It is a Saliva swab test and i'm wondering if they typically test for methadone? If so, I wanted to know if methadone is detectable through a saliva swab test? And how far back can it be detected?
