Hi - I have been on suboxone maintenance for over a year and a half and credit this medication as at least half the reason I have been able to stay clean. According to 12-step groups, if prescribed and taking it as prescribed, you are considered clean. My problem is that I need to take a hair follicle test to show that I have been clean for the last two years.

I know suboxone (or buprenorphine) does not show up on regular urine tests. To test for suboxone, they have to use a special test. I need to know if my hair follicle test will show opiate/opioid usage because I have been taking this. Please respond if you know the answer.

Thank you,
