I just changed methadone clinics and my first urine test came up positive for suboxone.They took away all my take homes & since i've never takin suboxone this is very frustrating.I'm on a bunch of differt medications and was hoping to find out what has caused this false positive.

Unfortunately urine test can be wrong. The first one I took came up positive for bupenorphine, or the girl read it wrong and I had never taken it either. Since this is a methadone clinic, I am not sure what rights you have but if you insist you didn't take something, they should let you retest, offer blood or hair as well so that you look convincing. My counselor occasionally ran the tests on herself if she felt the person was telling the truth and the test was wrong. She said that it was usually the whole batch of tests that were somehow contaminated and if she used her own urine and came up positive for something she didn't take, she knew something was wrong. Stay calm, but, ask to be retested and ask what their policies are regarding retesting. My first test had a bunch of meds positive so they retested.
