Drug testing part 2
Thanks Doc for previous reply. He has agreed to blood tests. Yes, he has manipulated urine tests in the past. You advised blood test should be done monthly ? How often would we test to pick it up ? Every 4 weeks ? He had drugs 2 weeks ago. If we test in 2 weeks time - if he hasnt had - will it now be clean ? So he should submit a test every 4 weeks ? Thanks.

Dear Tough Love
It depends on what he uses - some drugs clear from the system quickly. Maybe you should test him a day or so before she visits?

How old is your daughter - if she is older than 8/9 years, you could maybe teach her what to look out for and to call you if she suspects he has been using drugs.
