Can a Heroin addict trick home urine test ?

by Jackie
(San Jose, CA USA)

I am trying to help a family member with recovery. She is 23 and has been addicted for a couple years. She says she is done and clean and going through a outpatient program.

I was not dumb to drug use or users but I feel like I am now. She has been staying with me for two weeks now and she insists she is clean. I found her needles in the beginning and took them. She said they were old. I give her home 5 panel drug test randomly. She has passed every time.

I want to believe she is clean but as we all know drug addicts are liars and will do anything to get the fix. I was there I know. I didn't use heroin but meth for many years a very long time ago.

So my question is... Can you take something to fool a test? It is not coming up invalid at all. She is not drinking excessive amounts of water or cranberry juice. I can't find anything else she can be doing to trick the test, am I wrong for not believing them?

The short anser is yes.

Dear Jackie,

Yes you can buy "clean" urine and use that urine for the test. Would she be willing to have a hair follicle test at the doctor? The hair follicle test cannot be fooled.

My opinion is that you should not ignore your instincts, if you think she is using she likely is. Opiate addiction is a disease of the brain that is characterized by relapse. If she had needles she was likely using them.

Good Luck,

Debbie
