The subject line really says it all. It's sort of a long story how this came about, but I ended up taking an usprescribed Xanax
pill about 30 min. to an hour before a random drug
test today. I'm really unsure if the test will come back as a dirty. Further relevent information: the amount I took was .5 mgs (half of a blue xanax "football") and I hadn't taken any kind of benzos
or Xanax for at least 2 weeks prior to today's slip-up.
The type of test is just your normal, everyday urine drug screen that probation offices and methadone
clinics (the latter, in my case) use all the time. They collect the sample on-site at the clinic and then send it away to a lab to be tested.
The reason I'm asking is I really need to know if it's possible the Xanax will show up in the test. If it's very possible or likely, then my best course of action would be to go and tell my counselor everything. You're penalized less if you
go and confess before they have to confront you with the dirty results. But, obviously if there's a good chance the drug screen won't
be positive for Xanax, it'd be like shooting myself in the foot to go and confess it anyway.
Thanks in advance for any replies. There's a lot riding on this, so I really, really appreciate your time.
