I have been in methadone maintenance treatment foe over two years, cps has been investigating us because of a false statement some one made, if they drug test me will I fail for methadone, my lawyer said if I told them I was in treatment they could use that against me an say I need their services, but if it show in a ua, then I'll have to tell them, please, I'm a good father and will do anything to keep my babies! I just don't think I'm ready to quit treatment scared I'll relapse. But I want cps away ASAP

Hey Loving daddy,
If cps were to do a ua then the methadone would cause a positive. If they do a ua then you'll have to tell them the truth before the test. I would follow your lawyer's advice. I honestly believe in the honesty is the best policy rule, but again I would do what my lawyer suggests.

Hello, fellow cps victim, Having experienced this issue, plus some, myself Ill start by saying that your attrny is right. Cps can and will use anything they can. As of a few yrs ago, they started testing specifically for methadone in their testing. I found out the hard way. I was not using as a treatment program but illegally. Because I was also was intially being investigated due to false sttement I some how managed to weasle my way into a second test. This is rare so dont rely on that. But as time and my addiction went on they came back around. I was able to pass the test though. I did this by using alternate urine. Being a woman, it was easier for me to do this, but also very possible for you. You need to find out what kind of test they will do or be prepared for all. These days, they sometimes do a saliva test. Which can be more difficult, but possible as well. My advice is try to pass it if worse happens and u fail atleast your taking it legally to better yourself.
Dont trust the detox products avilal.Substitution is most reliable. If u need more details on passing let me know. Good luck and just pray.
