my daughter had a urine screening done at drug court and it showed up possitive for morphine and opiates she swares she did not use a few hours later she took another test at dyfs and came up clean what would cause this and would you be able to take somthing to clean your urine that would work in that short of time
What would show up as an opiate or morphine in a urine screening if you have not used them?

Insist the courts send the specimen for a GC-MS test. It is very accurate. It can be expensive but if it means she gets to keep her son, it is worth it. there is nothing that she could take to clean her urine that quickly! She was negative. Can they send the results and time of that test to the courts for her? They(the courts) have either mixed her test up with someone elses or it was an inaccurate test. Many of these tests, especially the "dip stick" types are inaccurate. I think it really stinks that they make these kinds of decisions based on tests that can easily be false positive or false negative!!
ANot sure if this is helpful but depending on the amount of time your daughter was addicted to opiates and the quantity she was addicted too Ive read that long term or heavy use can be stored in your bodies fat cells and be released at a later time. I dont know how heavy you have to be for this to happen. You might want to investigate it however. If she really did not use there would be a chance a later sreening might prove negative Good Luck
