About the State of West Virginia

West Virginia, also known as the Mountain State, is located in the eastern region of the United States and bordered by Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio. Beautifully spotted in the Appalachian Mountains, West Virginia is known for being one of the more scenic states in the nation with it being home to one of the most sought out National Forests in the country, the Monongahela National Forest.


To explain, the Monongahela National Forest is located in the Allegheny Mountains of eastern West Virginia and protects over 920,000 acres of federally owned land. This forest attracts millions of tourists each year for its scenic vistas, country roads and abundant plant and animal life. It is one of the most ecologically diverse areas in the entire United States with it being a provider of timber, water, grazing, minerals and recreational opportunities, according to the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service.

State of West Virginia Drug Testing News

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, West Virginia has the highest rate of drug overdose deaths that relate to opioids in the entire United States. As of 2017, there were over 830 drug overdose deaths involving opioids, putting it at a shocking rate of 49.6 deaths per 100,000 persons.  Research revealed that the highest increase in opioids that were found in the bodies of the deceased were synthetic opioids rather than methadone.

As of 2017, it was also revealed that West Virginia providers wrote 81.3 opioid prescriptions for every 100 persons, which is extremely high, especially with the national average rating at 58.7 prescriptions per 100 persons.

With the death rate being the highest in the nation and the opioid prescriptions not falling too far behind, it is no surprise that a national study revealed that between 2004 and 2014 1.5 cases per 1,000 hospital births sky rocketed to 8.0 cases per 1,000 hospital births resulted in a baby being born with neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome (NOWS).

FAQ's About Drug Testing in West Virginia

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

  • 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.
