In brief: Heroin

Why do you need to know this? I assume you or someone you know is trying to pass a blood test while at the same time being an abuser? I would suggest consideration on seeing someone who can help with the discontinuation the use of Heroin.

In brief: Several factors

Determine how long heroin is detectable in the user's system. 1) height & weight : the smaller the person, the person, the longer it remains.
2) duration of use & amount consumed; the longer the use & higher the dose, the longer it remains. 3) how efficiently the user's body metabolizes toxins. Usually 12 hours in blood & 90 days in hair follicles. See: http://www.Rehabinfo.Net/heroin-addiction/.
