YES, the detection period for the opiates (such as Demerol) is in the 3-5 day range depending on a number of factors including the sensitivity of the specific test..

Most home test don't detect Demerol as well as natural opiates such as morphine or codeine. A negative home test does NOT mean that you would pass a comprehensive test.
