Drugs of Abuse - Urine: 6 Drugs

The Drugs of Abuse urine test is a common screening method used to detect the presence of various illicit drugs in a person’s system. This particular test screens for six specific drugs: opiates, phencyclidine (PCP), cocaine, marijuana, amphetamine, and barbiturates. It is often used in employment screenings, drug rehabilitation programs, or in legal settings. The test analyzes a urine sample for metabolites of these drugs, which are substances produced when the body processes (or metabolizes) them.

Opiates: Opiates are a class of drugs derived from the opium poppy plant. They are used medically for pain relief but are also abused for their euphoric effects. Common opiates include morphine, codeine, and heroin.

PCP (Phencyclidine): PCP is a dissociative drug that alters perception, mood, and consciousness. It can cause hallucinations and, in some cases, violent behavior.

Cocaine: Cocaine is a powerful stimulant drug. It increases alertness and energy and produces a feeling of euphoria. However, it can also raise blood pressure and heart rate to dangerous levels.

Marijuana: Marijuana is derived from the cannabis plant. The psychoactive component in marijuana is THC, which affects perception and mood.

Amphetamine: Amphetamine is a stimulant that affects the central nervous system. It is used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy but is also abused recreationally.

Barbiturates: Barbiturates are sedative medications that are used to treat anxiety and sleep disorders. They are also used for medical anesthesia.
