How long does crystal meth show up in a drug test?

Crystal meth is a highly addictive form of methamphetamine. Many Ohio residents are struggling with a crystal meth addiction that they can't get under control no matter how hard they try. When a crystal meth addiction causes you to get in trouble with the law -- or to lose your job -- it could serve as a wakeup call to get the help you need.

Sometimes, as a result of the legal process -- or due to the policies of an employer -- an Ohio resident will have to undergo drug testing. If you have used meth in the past, you'll probably want to know how long this drug stays in your system before undergoing a test. Here's how long various types of meth tests can detect this drug in your system after use:

  • Urine testing: A urine test will show the presence of methamphetamine for up to four days after normal levels of use. However, if someone is a heavy and chronic user of the substance, meth could remain in the urine for as many as seven days.
  • Blood testing: Blood tests will show the presence of meth for between one to three days after use.
  • Saliva testing: Saliva tests will show meth in the system for one to four days following use.
  • Hair follicle testing: The hair follicle test is the one that offers the longest range and it could show that someone used meth up to three months into the past.

Of course, these are general estimations and each person's metabolism and body chemistry are different. If you're at risk of losing your job or getting into trouble with the law because of a failed meth test, you might want to discuss the situation with a drug crimes attorney who can evaluate your legal rights and options under state and federal law.
