... please tell me why?
There are a number of things that could have happened here. Say you had a head ache or something and asked someone if they had anything for it. You could have taken a pill that was methadone but you thought it was something else. Have you been to any parties recently? Maybe some got slipped into your drink liquid form.
Another thing that may be possible but very highly un likely. When I first started methadone and got clean from all other drugs I still worked for a drug dealer bagging and delivering coke. I had pee clean at the clinic and then one time It came up I had coke I had a few small cuts on my hands and it must have got in that way from handleing it. But I was touching massive amounts of coke so I can't see it comming up positive from handleing it. So hun you must be careful where your hanging out and with whom!! Someone has slipped you methadone!!
I agree with the first 2 answers. More than likely, somehow methodone got in your system. But if you are absolutely positive it shouldn't be there, I would request a do over. I think the most accurate is a hair follicle test or as subzero suggested, a mouth swab. Good luck to you.
Drug tests can definitely be wrong and you do have the right to be retested. Ask that they use a test from a different batch or send it to a different lab, if it is the mail off kind. Offer to let them test your hair. You wouldn't believe how many posts there are on here where someone had a false postive or even worse, a fasle negative and they got kicked off the pain management program.
