Patient :On the 21st of Febuary while drunk I had a small line of Cocaine which I now regret. I have recently been offered a new job post and have to sit a Drug and Alcohol test on Friday 1st May 2015. I'm probably worrying and over thinking it but I just want to make sure this won't effect it as the period of time has been 10 weeks??
Thank you for writing to us.
Both alcohol and cocaine cannot usually be present in the body for such a long time. The maximum time that cocaine can stay in the body is usually 20 days in heavy users who take a longer time to metabolise the cocaine.
Do not worry as the result should come back as negative. Hope this helps you. All the best.
