What does a partial result mean on a hair follicle test? Does this mean it will be positive?
I honestly don't know but here's given you my best wishes
Wish I could give you an answer but I have not heard of anyone having to do a hair follicle test while on nursing probation. Is this becoming more widespread now or do only certain individuals get hair tested?
It's becoming widespread.
I had one after a "dilute" urine.
I've never heard of a hair test here in Pa. I know they are out there but Meq is the first I've heard subject to one. I've heard of blood tests which are often given for dilute urines & positive pee tests
Yea, imagine my surprise!
My friend was ordered blood after a dilute- I'm assuming peth, as her DOC is alcohol, mine is not. Another friend had the same experience as me. She had 2 dilutes and was ordered a hair test. Also, not an alcohol abuser.
So much for random.
But in my research, I found that there is a hair test for ETG.

I guess that makes sense. I had to take one blood test right after I "failed" my first pee test after getting out of rehab. It turns out I failed it because I agreed to a free vivitrol shot while in patient. Its amazing what they test for. I never heard of anybody getting high on narcan
So they were dangling IM Narcan at you in return for what? It seems a bit unethical (hah, imagine that, no, not possible.) to be even marketing it to a client/patient/inmate who is there for alcohol. Can't help but wonder what kind of a kickback there was to someone based on how many doses they got injected. Sry, my inner mistrust of this **** is showing again....
Yeah, you are completely correct Cats. I've never thought of it but they made a big deal out of this shot that honestly I didn't want or need. At one point they said they would feel better about discharging me if I took the shot. Desperate to get out of that dung-hole I immediately dropped my pants. I bet there was some financial incentive. I told them there was no way I was paying a dime for this thing and wouldn't keep it up on discharge but it made them happy and I was discharged soon afterwards. Honestly, I think I was only discharged when I discussed the value of my inpatient experience with my insurance company and they cut off the $$$ which was the same reason they eventually discharged me from intensive outpatient months later. At $400 dollars per day for inpatient then $300 a day for outpatient my insurance company was billed just shy of $40K with no discernable benefits to me. If we want to take a hard look at cutting healthcare costs this would be a great place to start. The costs are astronomical and the results are dismal
When I had blood PEth test, after a couple of days it would report partial test result. Then after a couple of days, it would post (negative). It is still being tested. Don't worry
