No: Lorazepam is NOT an opiate. It is a benzodiazepine. It does not show up as an opiate. It shows up as a benzodiazepine. If you are in a methadone program, some serious reading-up on different types and classes of drugs will probably afford you considerable benefit in your journey toward sobriety. Knowledge is power.
