DRUG TESTING: If you go for a drug test they will test for some common drugs of abuse and benzodiazepines are in that category. They will accept a positive if you have a legitimate doctor's prescription. So for instance you should not test positive for Valium if you are not prescribed Valium. That would be a violation.

Stop Taking/Testing: The way to stop testing positive for beenzodiazepines is either to stop taking them altogether or to to stop taking the drug test. Most benzos have detection periods of days to weeks in the blood or urine.
