hey guys,

on the online application process, best buy said they would test for in the drug test: marijuana, opiates, cocaine, amphetamines, phencyclidine. Will suboxone show up on the test? I do not want to tell them I am prescribed to it as they will immediately know that I am a recovering addict and do not want them to hold it over my head, on the other hand, if it will show up, I rather let them know before hand so I definitely get the job.

Thanks so much, I appreciate everyones advice and input!!

aoooow wolfman

heres to 40 days of being totally sober!! yahoo for H2O!!

Since I've seen this exact same post four times now in no less than four different threads, I figured someone had better answer before every thread on the board contains the same question. :?

Sorry for the sarcasm, but...

Anyhow, it is not likely that Suboxone will show up on a standard employment drug screen. Those are typically either five or ten panel tests. The "good" thing is, Suboxone actually needs a special test to be detected. Due to it's make up, it will not show up as a standard opiate like the typical morphine, heroin, oxycodone, etc. will. It is not at all likely to be tested for by Best Buy or pretty much most other employers.

Why in the world the clerk at Best Buy has to pass a drug test in the first place, when even some perhaps many healthcare providers do not have to, is beyond me, but that's an entirely different discussion.

In the end, your secret of being on Suboxone should be safe - as it should be. Best of luck to you.
