I had a drug test come back positive (swab) for heroine. Can A hair follicle test prove that i have been clean of any substances?

I had a drug test come back  positive (swab)  for  heroine.  Can A hair  follicle test prove  that i have been clean of any  substances?

Not necessarily: The only SPECIFIC test for heroin is a test for its metabolite 6-monoacetylmorphine or 6MAM. I am not sure whether this is available in swab form, but the first thing with ANY positive test on a screening test, such as a urine drug screen or oral fluid swab is to do the confirmatory test.

Smoked marijuana in jun2013 for 5 days and twice in Oct2013. I have to take a drug test in a week.. Can it be detected in urine or hair follicle test?

Here's a link. http://marijuana.com/drug-test/detection-time/ Stay clean since it matters. Good luck. Perhaps someday this will be a thing of the past. One can hope. Till then, one must be smart. ...Read more

No you won't: Pot remains in the hair for 90 days. Your only hope would be that the amount in your hair is below the detectable limit in the test, but i would not count on it. Best wishes and please don't use at all. ...Read more

A friend ask me how to pass a hair follicle drug test i said don't do drugs you fool is there a way mr or mrs doctor x?

Hair follicles: You gave your friend the right answer in saying "don't do drugs" -- that's the only reliable way to pass a drug test of any kind. Hair follicles will remain positive for varying periods depending on the drug in question. Cutting hair will also not completely get rid of the follicles, which are down into the scalp. Thc, for instance, would still remain in the follicles for at least 90 days. ...Read more
