In brief: Probably

Clearance of substances from your body can be affected by a number of things: dose, metabolism, hydration, body type, chronicity of use, etc.
On average, Methadone clears the body in 3-5 days (or 1-7 days) depending on the type of test and the study providing the information.

In brief: Most likely

Methadone half life is up to three days, so you should be fine (unless you take more).
