30 day alcohol test? NATAL!E 2 kids; Gaithersburg, Maryland 24182 posts

so I'm in a 12 week program for substance abuse... Gotta go to classes, N.A., drug & alcohol tests, blajhe, blajhe....
My question is.... do alcohol tests EXIST that go back 30 days? The counselor told me they have one that is so sensitive it detects NyQuil and hand sanitizer :?:
This is real...? Drinking is not my problem as much, but this alcohol test just sounds ridic.

I don't think so, but I could be wrong



Alcohol leaves your system really quickly

When you're in N.A. you have to remain completely sober even if drinking wasn't your addiction. My dad goes to N.A. meetings, he had a cocaine addiction but doesn't/can't drink.



I don't think there is a test that will go back 30 days though but sometimes alcohol tests can pick up on certain cold medicines, mouthwashes, etc.

You just need a desire to get sober to be in N.A. They don't make you remain.
and N.A. isn't testing me, the substance abuse center will be

Well however it works for where ever you're going, I'm telling you why they want you to abstain from alcohol.

and you have a attitude, why? I ASSUMED you didn't know why since you said the tests sound ridiculous because alcohol isn't your problem. My mistake.

That makes no sense, you metabolize alcohol and then it's gone. Scare tactics, I say. :lol:
