How to best test for cocaine?

If you’re testing someone for cocaine use, you need to take into account how much they’re using (dosage) and how often (frequency). This may help you decide which type of test you need.

Here’s a helpful guide:

  • Did someone use cocaine one time? (single use)
    • A saliva test will be most effective
    • Avoid urine or hair tests
  • Has someone been using a lot of cocaine? (high dosage)
    • A nail test will detect the longest length of time; a hair test will look at dosage over the past 90 days
  • Has someone been using cocaine very often (frequent use)?
    • A urine or saliva test are the best tests for this
