State of Ohio Drug Testing News

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Ohio ranked as one of the top five states with the highest rates of deaths relating to opioid overdoses in 2016. Research revealed that there were over 3,600 deaths, a rate of 32.9 deaths per 100,000 persons, relating to opioid overdoses, which is a shocking rate of double the national average of only 13.3 deaths per 100,000 persons. Not to mention, the heroin-related deaths also jumped from 355 in 2012 to 1,478 in 2016.

According to the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy, in August of 2017 new rules went into effect that limit opioid prescriptions for patients, generally a seven-day supply for adults and five days for anyone under 18,  in order to help decrease the dependence on these drugs, as well as to dramatically decrease the amount of deaths being caused by opioid prescriptions.

FAQ's About Drug Testing in Ohio

Drug detection factors

The length of time that a drug is detectable in the system depends on a variety of factors, including:

  • the type of test
  • dose
  • tolerance
  • potency
  • metabolism
  • the existence of medical conditions

Drug detection times

Please use these figures as a guide only:

  • Alcohol: 3-5 days in urine, 10-12 hours in blood
  • Amphetamines: 1-3 days in urine and around 12 hours in blood
  • Barbiturates: 2-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood
  • Benzodiazepines: 3-6 weeks in urine and 2-3 days in blood
  • Cannabis: 7-30 days in urine and up to 2 weeks in blood
  • Cocaine: 3-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood
  • Codeine: 1 day in urine and up to 12 hours in blood
  • Heroin: 3-4 days in urine and up to 12 hours in blood
  • LSD: 1-3 days in urine and up to 2-3 hours in blood
  • MDMA (ecstasy): 3-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood
  • Methamphetamine (crystal meth): 3-6 days in urine and 24 – 72 hours in blood
  • Methadone: 3-4 days in urine and 24-36 hours in blood
  • Morphine: 2-3 days in urine and 6-8 hours in blood

Drug detection in hair

Drugs or their metabolites may be detectable in hair. Hair grows at a rate of approximately 1cm per month so depending on the length of hair it may be possible to determine drug use over recent months.

A urine drug test, also known as a urine drug screen or a UDS, is a painless test. It analyzes your urine for the presence of certain illegal drugs and prescription medications. The urine drug test usually screens for:

  • amphetamines
  • methamphetamines
  • benzodiazepines
  • barbiturates
  • marijuana
  • cocaine
  • PCP
  • methadone
  • opioids (narcotics)

Alcohol can also be included in screening tests, but it’s usually detected through breath tests rather than urine screens.

A urine drug test can help a doctor detect potential substance abuse problems. After a drug test identifies drugs you may be misusing, doctors can help you start a treatment plan. Taking urine drug tests throughout substance abuse treatment helps to ensure that the plan is working and that you’re no longer taking drugs.

Cannabis: 7-30 days in urine and up to 2 weeks in blood.

Cocaine: 3-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood.

Codeine: 1 day in urine and up to 12 hours in blood.

Heroin:3-4 days in urine and up to 12 hours in blood.

It is broken down and excreted through your urine, making it detectable with urine drug testing for up to five days. Hair drug testing timelines have windows of up to 90 days.

Negative results are usually received within 24 hours; however, a positive screen will require further testing that may take a few days up to one week. If the initial screen is negative, a medical review officer (MRO) will typically contact the employer with the results.

If your urine is being tested only for a urinalysis, you can eat and drink normally before the test. If you‘re having other tests at the same time, you may need to fast for a certain amount of time before the test.
