I'm guessing they test for marijuana, meth and cocaine but what about prescription drugs. Does anyone know what they test for these day?

All prescription drugs will show up. They look for benzodiazepines, opiates, marijuana, meth, cocaine, and everything as well as alcohol. You had best hope you have a prescription(s) because they check to see if you have one and check to see if you were given that drug at an emergency room too. You have to pay for every drug test. Don't try to use those drinks that claim to flush your system out. The test detects it and they do NOT work. If you dispute the test, it's sent off to a lab to be verified. If you fail probation, you will have to do the remainder of that sentence in the jail. No lie.

They can and do test for all know legal and illegal drugs. THe only difference is that if you have a prescription and someone tests for their prescription medications, there is nothing that a probation officer can do about abuse. I have tried to have limits put on clients for years about prescription abuse, and to no avail. For the most part, probation officers do their jobs and do them well, but we are completely overloaded with clients (I have personally supervised as many as 350 clients per month) and we cannot be as effective as we would like to be. I hope that this answers your question and that you should know that most probation officers are just trying to do the right thing. I can say in 23 years, I have never put 1 person jail that did not do something :"themselves" to deserve it.

Have fun with your kidney failure. I'll probably be paying for your dialysis and transplant.

There is nothing wrong with cleaning your system out with those cleansing drinks. Do you just make stuff up so you can type words.

The detox drinks elevate creatine levels in the blood stream in order to mask drug use. Most labs check for elevated creatine levels and will send back the results as "deluted" which = fail. Don't do it.

Increased createnine levels are caused by kidney damage, period. So "bo-bo" don't open your damn trap if you don't know what the hell you're talking about. There is an easier, safer way to pass a drug test that doesn't involve destroying your kidneys. I won't tell you what it is. Assuming you haven't fried your brain from all the dope you've been doing it should be common sense.

They don't make you spend the rest of probation in jail. Instead they give them more time on probation and a few days to spend in jail. They know a month in advance when their appointment is. If their drug of choice is pain pills they can stop for a few days before and pass it just fine. 20+ days out of the month they stay wasted and terrorize anyone around them. If you hope that probation will help someone get clean, you will be sorely disappointed The probation officers are too overloaded to be able to do the job properly unfortunately.

It's different in every county. Some may work this way, most counties in my area put you in jail for a failed drug test. Drug tests are at least twice a month & random, so you do not know ahead of time. peace&love J

Methadone is a opiate. I thought that was common knowledge.

Tramadol is now considered a controlled substance, your Dr has to put his dea number on the script, it is an opiate pain pill, so yes it will show up

I've been smoking Jasberry Chunt over the past few months and got caught up on old charges after moving back here.
I've ended up on probation and was wandering if they test for this too?
