Probably: I prescribe Suboxone for addiction and i test for a large group of medications. It should be on their test list.

Doubt it.: It is not similar in structure to heroin, prescription medications, fentanyl nor methadone. Unless they are testing specifically for it, it does not show up. Since it costs significant money to test for ALL opiates, mostly places cut corners and test only for heroin. Maybe pills and heroin. I doubt they are spending 75 or more bucks every sample.
