How do you define "narcotics"? It depends on the drug, and how much, and how long a person was using. Most drugs are out of the system and not detectable in urine after 2-7 days but some drugs like benzodiazepines and marijuana can stay in the system for 6 weeks or more. If you mean opioids, then most stay in the system 3-7 days on average, some longer.
