Agree with Dzoobaby and if you're using heroin, you should seek help. There's a drug called suboxone that successfully treats addicts by binding to the opiate receptors which dies two things, 1) Take away cravings and, 2) by attaching to those receptors, if you do use, you will become extremely ill as it forces you into detox and from what I've heard, is extremely unpleasant. There are suboxone clinics in most states where you can go in, detox under medical supervision, be started on the drug when appropriate and go on to receive treatment. I have lost too many friends throughout my entire life to heroin, from when I was a teenager to still hearing of friends passing well into their 40's. please get the help and support you need. Life is too precious!

To answer the question, the heroin will be undetectable anywhere from 1-7 days after your last use. There are many factors that influence this and there is really nothing you can do to speed things up. In my experience, 3 days is most common and I have never known anyone who has failed a urine analysis a week after their last use.
Suboxone was also mentioned as a form of treatment. Suboxone can help ease, even eliminate, most symptoms of withdrawal and even reduce cravings but it is by no means a magic bullet. For starters, you need to wait until all effects of the heroin have worn off and you are in withdrawal before you take it, generally 24 hours after your last hit but this also differs from person to person. Taking suboxone to soon will induce what's called precipitated withdrawal (it forces all the opiates off your receptors and you will go into instant awful withdrawal) and there is nothing you can do but wait it out. No amount of heroin will make you feel better. Contrary to what I read in the comments, taking heroin while on suboxone will not make you sick but the heroin will have no effect as the active ingredient in suboxone, buprenorphine, has a much higher affinity for your receptors than heroin.
While suboxone can work wonders when it comes to detoxing, it is not a long term solution. You still need to get into"recovery" and actively manage your disease every day or eventually you will be right back where you are now wondering how it all fell apart. You can become dependant on suboxone as well and the duration of withdrawal is much greater and with the same symptoms. No fun. I would recommend only using suboxone during detox and for no longer than a week or two.
