If you’re interested in the type of drugs a urine drug screen can detect, here’s a comprehensive list of a few:
Opiates (heroin, oxycodone)
The thing you should bear in mind is that urine test will come back positive only if the amount of detected drug is above a certain level, and this is expressed in nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml). This is done to reduce the number of false-positives such as, for example, secondhand smoking.
Detection time is also one of the factors at play in this particular situation. For example, while alcohol is only detectable 7-12 hours after use, PCP can show up in traces after 8 days.
