into your urine will not cause your urine test to come up as positive. for heroin, and every other drug
to my knowledge from different synthetic opiates
's have to be tested specifically for) the urine test comes up positive if your urine contains the metabolite your liver produces to process whatever drug it needs to out of your system. if you fail a drug test for heroin its not because they detected the heroin molecule in the sample, its the chemical your liver produces to break down and process the heroin . as stated above with heroin and morphine
the test will detect the same metabolite, at least in the majority of drug tests im sure further analysis could further distinguish between the two, but the same is also true for other drugs
like some benzos, meth
would also trigger a positive test for amphetamine
however im pretty sure most tests have a specific meth test.
also as stated above you should have absolutely no problem at all going in and telling them you have been off heroin for a time for several reasons such as your taking soboxone daily or almost so heroin wont bind to your opiate
receptors so using heroin wouldn't get you high, also if your getting tested by the court system in your case they do not test for the metabolite soboxone produces so you went from being dependent on heroin to soboxone on your own so you wont go to jail (hopefully for other reasons too, im on a methadone
and know first hand how much heroin and other opiates can fuck things up) and wont suffer withdrawal
. the first two times i went on opaite replacment, the first time i got on soboxne and the second methadone, i was using oxycodone
about 90 precent of the time so i wasn't a heroin addict. soboxne and methadone produce the same kind of dependance though much different than withdrawal from a drug like heroin or fentany being on a high dose and having to get a fix though the streets is going cause the same problems more traditional recreational opiates cause.
the only question i would have is if your probation officer or the child custudy court or whatever started testing for soboxone .im sure when you started getting tested you had to give them a list of all your perscriptions and soboxone wouldn't be on there. i dont think it would be that big of a problem make sure you dont sign a release of information so your soboxone doctor and your probation officer can speak about you, so presumibly the doctor couldn't even confirm if your a patient because of confidentiality so it would be hard for them to prove you ommited something or were using a controlled drug without a perscription, if you were getting drug tested for a child custody case this could really fuck you over because the other's attorney could make you look like you had been taking illegal drugs while under court order not too.
thats the only problem i can think of, if you are in a custody battle or something other than being drug tested by a probation officer such as some kind of law suit, a fact like that could be used by the other attorney to smear your image, call into question any testimony you gave, and just make your character questionable ( in the eyes of the court that is and many jurors would be less likely to believe a person who i know to have broken the law while under court order not to use drugs which could fuck you). if you involved in an open case of any kind you need to consult and attorney, if you were all ready sentanced and on probation than i might not think hiring an attoney would be worth the money, but if its a civil or other court case it could be a big deal.
