I hate to tell you this, but a person can pop positive for methadone for a couple of weeks after the last use. It is a long acting med and metabolizes slowly and recedes from the receptors sites slowly. When we take opiates in general, even short acting ones, it can slow your metabolism down, making you test positive longer. You may be lucky and test clean, but you may also pop positive for a couple of weeks for methadone. Sorry, good luck. Pattishan
