About a day: Haldol (haloperidol) doesn't persist in the body, it's gone after about a day. However, its effect may linger for a few days longer. This is true of many psychiatric drugs: their effects last longer than they are literally "in your system".

Days: The half life of Haldol (haloperidol) is around 24 hours and after 5 half-lives the drug should be 99% out of your system. That means about 5 days, maybe a week at most.
