Heroin is pain-killer of the opioid class and is considered to be the most addictive drug in the world.
Heroin has a remarkably short half-life of 3-8 minutes, thus getting eliminated from the body within 16-44 minutes. However, heroin gets metabolized to 6-Monoacetylmorphine (6-MAM) which has an elimination half-life of fewer than 5 minutes and is subsequently metabolized into morphine.
The timeframes mentioned above are averages, in actuality, durations may vary depending on certain factors like:
How long is heroin detectable in urine, blood, saliva and hair for a drug test
|Urine||Up to 7 days|
|Blood||5-6 hours to up to 2 days|
|Saliva||5-6 hours to up to 2 days|
