... will this be in the blood stream, he is DOT Certified. He has stopped taking it two days ago.
How long has he been taking them and when is his "return to work" drug screen due? Most CDL operators are subjected to annual, pre-employment, post accident, random, and suspicion drug screens. Usually when someone is off work due to an accident, and has a "safety sensitive" position, even if his test came up positive for opiates, he has a legitimate reason for them to be in his system. If he works for a private company, he may have to be "clean" in order to return to work. But he can not be fired for a positive test due to his legally prescribed meds. The worst that could happen is they have him wait until they are fully out of his system before returning to work. Was it an injury where he won't need the meds anymore? If so, I would give it at least 5-7 days for it to show negative. Drink as much water as possible. The more he urinates the faster they will be out of his system.
Good luck to you,
