Most drugs are detectable in the urine and saliva within 2-8 hours after use, while blood drug tests detect almost immediately, and within 5-7 days the drugs can be detected from the hair on the head, however, detection the body hair takes longer since the hair generally grows slower.

As hair grows slowly, drugs can be detected for months or even years after it was ingested. The processing time for this type of testing is longer than urine or blood testing, but it’s the best long-term method. Note that a hair sample can be taken from anywhere on your body. Your hair only needs to be 1.5 inches when used as a drug test sample.

And while hair-based drug tests are fairly accurate, tests of blood and urine are simply unable to detect the vast majority of drugs, so long as you haven't used for about a week. Heroin, for example, is generally undetectable in urine after three to five days .

Urine tests that look for specific drugs instead of the entire class also exist, however, and can be used if necessary. Expanded Drug Test Panels. The expanded drug test panel is sometimes added to the usual 5- or 10-panel drug tests. This testing panel can be used to detect certain drugs, which are often called semisynthetic or synthetic opioids. The expanded panel can be used to test for such drugs as: Hydrocodone; Hydromorphone; Oxycodone; Oxymorphone
