A friend has to see his probation officer tomorrow and is worried that drugs he useded Friday will show up. I told him he is 'busted' but he disagrees. Any other opinions on this? thank you…

Hi
The drug screens used at the hospital where I work would show cocaine for 72 hours. They are probably similar to tests used by courts.

Well, it depends on how much he took, and some other factors. 72 hours is the "textbook" answer though. My guess is that he is busted.

Of course the classical and infallible way to pass drug tests is to not take drugs.

Maybe. He says he has been drinking some herbal tea and believes this will help. I don't know if there is any truth to this. I don't want to see him get his probation violated. He's a good kid. He last did crack Friday night. May I should advise he just try to buy himself a few more days before reporting to probation just to be on the safe side. Feedback…ty

Yes, if he drinks a lot of water now it will help wash out his kidneys and bladder. And if he goes in after having drunk a lot of water, it is possible that his urine levels will be below detection limits.

If I were him, I would try to delay a day or two. And then resolve to the the stuff alone. It's bad enough when you are not on probation.

Hi Addicted,

I'm sorry to say this but my hope for your friend is that he fails his drug test, violates his probation and pays the consequences for his actions. Then….perhaps he will wake up and see that smoking crack will do nothing but bring bad things and negative consequences to his life.

Trying to help him find a way to cover up the fact that he smokes crack would be enabling him to continue to do so…which in the long run…..will get him much worse off then he is now.

With any luck…getting caught now will be the "bottom" that he needs to straighten up.

Its about 48 hours and because of this short time my who relapsed this week never gets help cause it is always out of his system. Tell your friend to get help now before it takes over and it will.

You know what? I hate to be mean, but I hope he does get caught. God, I hate drugs so much. If he gets away with it, it will only lead to doing more drugs.

I am a probation officer. It can take up to 72 hours to totally leave the system. Water will flush the system but when you pee water we are not idiots and know that urine is yellow not to mention the lab tests for that too and detects it even when its flushed, however field tests generally dont catch it if you flush. Herbal Tea will not help. My suggestion is if he gets caught then he should discuss treatment with his probation officer and maybe he will not get violated. Honesty is the best approach. I go out of my way to work with honesty. If he doesnt get caught now would be a really good time to suggest he evaluate his lifestyle and consider treatment on his own. If he is not open for that sooner or later he will get caught and he will get violated etc. etc.

Lolli, Jas and Thum, I have to agree with all of you. By helping him to find ways to pass, is NOT helping him. If he's on probation, (or even if he's not), he shouldn't be using. And getting caught may be the only way he will be helped.

It helped my XH. But he went on from jail and probation, to prison and parole. It just keeps growing until you are backed against the wall, with NOTHING more to lose.

Encourage treatment, but do not help him. This is HIS problem, he owns it and he earned it.

Just my take…

Jen
