In brief: Drug problem?

Drug testing is not typically done prior to surgery unless the clinician thinks you may have a drug problem that can make surgery dangerous.
However, the question may mean that you're taking drugs you shouldn't be. If you or people around you believe this is a problem, see a psychiatrist or other mental health professional for help. Hope this answer helps.
