Opiate Addiction | Tools of the Trade

You may be wondering what are Burn Marks on Aluminum Foil? These marks are the telltale signs and residue left from smoking prescription opiate pills, synthetic street opiates or heroin. The substance is placed on the dull side of the foil, and heated from below with a simple flame any lighter will produce. The trails are created as the user uses gravity, by holding the foil at a slight angle, to keep the substance moving as it heats to point of creating smoke, and inhaling the smoke as you follow it. This technique was developed to prevent the drug from destruction from ignition which could occur if left in same spot. Many talented users find joy in making designs to keep bystanders wondering what are the burn marks on aluminum foil.

Known as Freebasing or Chasing the Dragon, this image is evidence of opiate use and very likely an Oxycodone or derivative thereof, which is basically synthetic heroine. Heroin is diacetylmorphine. Oxycodone slang names: blues, roxies, oxies, 30s. Very popular Roxycodone are little blue pills that can run as much as $30 per pill on the street. Opiate pill trails are crisp while a Black tar heroin path leaves a distinct trail littered with clumps of resin. One can also smoke amphetamines (like meth or Adderall®) this way which also leaves a dark track. If the user unusually wired or amped they are probably engaged in amphetamine use but, if sluggish or comatose it’s probably an opiate. Users that smoke prescription opiates typically graduate to Heroin because eventually this method of use becomes too expensive (wasteful) to achieve the desired effect, which is what turns most users to the needle. Injecting an amount about 1/4 of what a someone would usually smoke has a much stronger effect.

What are the burn marks on aluminum foil? Essentially, the foil method is a simple routine for putting the substance into one’s bloodstream. This is referred to as bioavailability; How the body absorbs the substance based on delivery method. Here are the core methods in order of effectiveness and the typical progression for users who become addicted to chasing the high:

Smoking Opiates | The Chase is On!

What are the burn marks on aluminum foil? Essentially, the foil method is a simple routine for putting the substance into one’s bloodstream. This is referred to as bioavailability; How the body absorbs the substance based on delivery method. Here are the core methods in order of effectiveness and the typical progression for users who become addicted to chasing the high:

  • Oral Ingestion: after which it’ll be dissolved and absorbed via your stomach lining.

  • Sublingual: substance dissolves under your tongue, where blood vessels in your mouth absorb the contents.

  • Inhalation: smoke it, which allows it to make contact with blood vessels very close to surface of one’s lung tissue. Nasal passages provide similar efficiency.

  • Injection: direct introduction into the bloodstream. Foil is replaced with a spoon where the substance is melted into liquid form with water prior to injection. That’s usually the end of the line, as there isn’t a more direct intake method.

Drug Use in the House? | Additional Evidence

  • Gum wrappers – Commonly used to package small amounts of heroin in.

  • Watch out for any grey powder – it’s probably Fentanyl the elephant tranquilizer that drug dealers are cutting powdered substances with to make it more addictive.

  • Tiny plastic baggies, smell them. If it smells like vinegar it’s heroin. Heroin use will leave residual smells of vinegar and clothes will have a chemical smell.

  • Broken pens or straws cut in half are used to inhale the smoke trail.

  • Cold medicine – If the cold pills contain dextromethorphan (such as Robitussin) could be abused. Taking a bunch of them at once will cause hallucinations, it’s called “Robotripping”

Precautionary Tales | Drug Use

Opiate addiction withdrawals are brutal. Once the user begins withdrawing, they will do almost anything to get more to stop the perceived pain and discomfort. If they have started intravenous use then this will be 10x fold more difficult. Parents should be armed with Naloxone (brand names include Narcan®, Evzio®). Many hospitals distribute it for free. It can be bought as a generic and many states allow pharmacies to dispense Naloxone without a prescription, and sometimes at a discount. Naloxone/Narcan is like a shot of adrenaline very simple to use and can save a life when someone overdoses.

Naloxone effectively reverses an opioid overdose (heroin, painkillers) for a short period of time. An emergency dose of Naloxone always needs to be followed up by a trip to the ER so treatment can continue. Exactly how an EpiPen® buys you time during a bad allergic reaction. Naloxone has no side effects if used on a person who is not overdosing on opioids, so if you suspect a person has overdosed on opioids, you can be certain that your actions won’t cause them harm. However, when you do use Naloxone on a person who has overdosed on opioids, expect them to be very agitated. Naloxone’s half-life is usually shorter than the duration of the high created by the overdose. Naloxone basically stops the high and drops the person into withdrawals.

You can also pursue Vivitrol®. It’s a shot that you get in the thigh that makes it impossible to get high off any opioid or opiate. Similar to use of Antabuse (Disulfiram) for Alcoholics. It lasts for about a month. You can get the nasal without a prescription in many places. Try your local pharmacy and ask for it. You can get injectable but, the nasal inhalation method is ideal because everyone feels comfortable administering it. Note: these products have a shelf life so, check the labels periodically.

Vivitrol® is very much like Narcan® in shot form that lasts for a lot longer, and instead of bringing you back from respiratory failure it stops you from ever getting high in the first place. It’s a shot that takes away cravings for Heroin and Alcohol among others. It works for about 30 days so he would need the shot more than once. I had the shot once for alcohol abuse. It seriously worked! Also, if he does try to get high or drunk it won’t work. You can OD before you actually feel any high so he should be monitored while on it, just in case he decided to use while on the shot. Vivitrol doesn’t take away cravings. At least not in my experience, but I don’t believe it’s designed to for anyone. It just blocks you from getting high and makes using unpleasant. It’s a deterrent. Suboxone, or methadone, prevent cravings, but come with their own host of issues. Many even finding that quitting Suboxone is harder than kicking the heroin

It’s a naturally occurring psychoactive substance found in West African plants that is currently illegal but it is known to help addicts get off opiate addiction.

Finally, the all-natural substance Kratom has been reported by ex-addicts to work wonders for opiate withdrawal and is very easy to taper off with. Kratom is a ground up leaf and you can’t overdose on it unless you mix it with a bunch of other opiates.

In Conclusion:

To beat opiate addiction, many report having to go on another drug that doesn’t have the euphoric effects that their drug of choice does, as you have read, there are several different kinds that relieve all withdrawal symptoms with no high associated with them. Just remember an addict can abuse any drug so they must be managed. Once the neural reception has gotten a rest, they can be weaned off of whichever medicine they are on. Every addict has to choose recovery in their own way and in their own time.  Learn more about signs of drug use on the Addiction Resources section of our site.
