You may go through this information on crack clearance time and see where do you fit into it.

As you may realize, the minimum time for Benzoylecgonine clearance is usually 4-5 days. If a person had been a regular user or consumed it heavily or used it with alcohol, then the time may go up significantly. Caffeinated drinks also tend to hold it back in the body.

Take care,

      This is too short a period for cleaning up your system. The drug requires at least a week to get out of the system.

      Keep drinking lots of water. Avoid caffeine and abstain completely from alcohol. This would speed up the excretion of the drug.

      You may pass, if this was a one time use of the drug. Also, during these seven days, you need to take all precautions.

      Drink lots of water, abstain from alcohol and caffeine. Take plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Exercise daily.

    My co-worker is 5’10” 200lbs and would like to know if you can provide any information related to an “oralert” saliva drug tests detection times for someone who has recently smoked crack 2 grams and drank quite a bit. The subject in question isn’t very honest but I’d peg him as a regular user. He has a drug test Friday morning, Any information would be helpful.

      Saliva drug test detect cocaine up to 20ng/mL. Detection in saliva begins immediately after smoking and stays for almost a day.

      To pass the test, ask him to abstain completely from cocaine and alcohol. Drinking plenty of water would help.

      He needs to include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in his diet. These are natural detoxifiers.

      Also, he needs to brush his teeth thoroughly twice a day to clean out any speck of drug or its breakdown products in the oral cavity. Using a non alcohol mouth wash would be beneficial.

    I ingested a small amount of crack approximately 7 days prior to obtaining a hair follicle test (underarm hair). How likely is it that the hair has grown out far enough or was cut close enough to the skin to read positive?

      If you take all precautions to cleanse your body during those six days, you may pass the urine test.

    Hi! about 2 days ago, I took a few hall’s of a single lace joint or as call a primo joint. I’m not a frequent user. Lace with tobacco. Will I pass my drug test on Monday. Like I said, it was a single lace joint and I’ll have to add it had no effect on me.

      Was this a one time use of the drug? If yes, you have a chance to pass. However, if you have been using it regularly, things become complicated.

      Some amount of drug may have been stored in your fatty tissues, liver. This stored drug is slowly released into the blood stream to give a constant baseline level.

      If this was a one time use of the drug, you have fair chances of passing the test.

      Just keep taking all steps for cleansing, as mentioned above.

      Are you a regular user of the drug? If yes, cleansing in such a short duration would be difficult.

      If this was a one time use of the drug, you are likely to pass. You just need to be aggressive about cleansing your system. Read here about management- http://buddymd.com/excrete-cocaine-quickly

      In such cases, cleansing usually takes around 2 to 3 months of no drug use time lengths.

      Depends upon whether you a regular user, or, was this a one time use.

      If this was a one time use, you’re likely to pass.

    Ok so i just need to know if im going to be ok for a drugtest thats possible at the end of january. Thursday night me and a friend of mine were drinking pretty heavily and i did about 1.5g of coke and a little bit of hard. Friday i did nothing and then saturday i also drank and did maybe 2g of hard and a couple lines. It was quite a bit of coke on top of the fact that i was drinking and i read about this shit “cocaethylene” that stays in your system when coke and alc are mixed. There was one rehab page on google that said cocaethylene can stay in your system for 30 days. I have never heard of any traces of cocaine regardless of how much theyd used or if they had used it with alcohol being in someones system for a month. What do you think guys? It seems like 14 days is the max time any traces of coke can be in your system even if taken with alcohol.Advice please i might have a drug test at the middle of january. Just wanna make sure ill be ok in lets say 3 weeks. I used thurs and sat but other than that ive been clean for the whole year before.

      You’re likely to be clean by the end of Jan. However, you need to cleanse yourself aggressively during these days. Drink plenty of water throughout the day.

      Abstain completely from alcohol. Limit to caffeine.

      You had around two days for cleansing yourself. All would depend how efficiently you cleansed up your body. Yes, you have a chance to pass, however, with such a small time window available for cleansing, results are difficult to predict.

      If you’ve been using the drug often, it would be difficult to cleanse yourself so quick.

      However, if this was one time, cleanse yourself aggressively. You have a chance to pass.
