Psychiatrist 's  Response

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I am sorry that you have to live around people that smoke meth. There is a slight chance of passive smoking depending on the way the meth is being used. I also believe that getting tested for a urine tox screen or a serum tox screen will give you the right picture if you have any substances in your system. I also believe that you might want to consult a psychiatrist for help and avoid the area around which you may have passive exposure to meth.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
