Detox difficult: If your friend has a serious problem and trusts you, be supportive and get him/her to a detox facility. Depending on what they are on, it may require medical supervision. The hardest thing for us to do, is to convince someone they need help. Sometimes they will listen to a friend much more than a doctor.
Good luck! ...Read more

Detox not helpful: Unless using large amounts of cannabis for some time often urines will be negative after a week or so. The best way to avoid detection and be forthright about it is to simply ensure that you leave a dilute urine. This can be done by getting rid of the first urine of the morning and then drinking plenty of fluids prior to your leaving a sample. All the best. Is cannabis a problem for you? ...Read more

I'm addicted to heroin, I'm using 2-3 grams a day snorting. I went to a detox but there more drugs in there. I really just want to give up I need help?

Life not about quick: Fixes to problems, instead a complex process of trial & error; making mistakes, trying something different, gradually (hopefully) learning wisdom. Addictions driven by pain/issues we avoid/deny because seem impossible to find acceptable solutions & people stand as harsh judge&jury on themselves. Not surprised more "drugs"; goal is making progressive transitions from bad to not as bad; eventually ...Read more

Eventually, it can be stopped. It can take weeks. ...Read more

I relapsed using meth got a urine drug test at pain clinic it's been 72 hours I got a detox called flush out will it work or can I be clean?

No: The people who sold you "Flush" are laughing all the way to the bank. They know you won't sue for being defrauded with this phony product, because you'd have to tell the world you're a meth user. Please stop doing this. You were given other warnings about other drugs that aren't true, but the dangers of meth haven't been exaggerated.

Not likely: If you've been using drugs in the last few months, it can be detected in hair exam.

If I used marijuana less than a month ago and I'm using a detox drink for a urine drug test and my menstrual cycle is on will my test be positive?

Maybe: Marijuana stays in your hair follicles for far longer then the kidneys rate of excretion. In other words, your urine test may or may not be positive for marijuana depending on how long your body needs to excrete THC (marijuana) products. Your menstrual period has nothing to do with the rate of kidney excretion. ...Read more

Hernia surgery under general anesthesia schd in 10 days. Heavy drinker and rec. Drug user. Have used Coke, crystal, Vicodin in last 20 days. Is a 10 day detox likely sufficient to mitigate risk assuming no other health factors. Can't disclose to Dr.

Ideally 2 weeks: Ideally you should be clean 2 weeks before general anesthesia The risk is you have a cardiac arrhythmia and die on the table. It is never a good idea to hide your drug use from your physicians because the drugs in your system interfere with the drugs and treatments he/she provides. They may drug test you before the surgery and if positive cancel the surgery. But it's better than dying ...Read more
