benzodiazepine on drug screen?
« on: Jan 07, 2018, 10:26 »
Good morning all,

I used to work in nukes and now I'm in transmission with a utility.  I'm supposed to go to our local nuke to get badged next week for switchyard work. Last night, I was feeling a little restless and unable to fall asleep and my wife suggested I take half of her 1mg klonopin. I took it and crashed out. Those things works well. I thought nothing of it until this morning when I woke up and realized I will have a drug screen in two days.

Does anyone know if klonopin is part of a nuke drug screen? I could always just wait a week to go in for badging, as this is not a pressing issue.  I'd just hate to show up for FFD, get tested, and my boss get a phone call that they can't badge me due to a failed drug test.  :-[ 

Any info appreciated!

Prescription drugs are typically not tested for in the drug screen panel. Abuse of prescription drugs is a disqualifying issue. Hope that isn't the case for you. It's pretty well known that the drug you listed is commonly abused as a "legal" high.

It won't be tested for but taking someone else's prescription is a big problem by itself and could be disqualifying if it is discovered. By definition that is drug abuse.

I would hope they test for benzos. After reading some of the tails on Reddit where people just got out of jail for robbing Walmart and not even remembering it because they took benzos recreationally, I wouldn't want a casual/recreational user around.
