Why Do So Many People Die From Opiate Overdose?

October 2012---Why Do So Many People Die From Opiate Overdose?

Opiates come in many forms such as heroin, morphine, vicodin, percocet, dilaudid, fentanyl, opana etc etc.....but why are so many people overdosing and dying on opiates compared to other drugs? Because it's easy to die on opiates. Meaning, opiates suppress the part of the brain that "reminds" you to breath. A person gets so calm and so relaxed they don't realize they are no longer breathing. They simply forget to breath and drift into death. I know this is a very simplistic explanation, but it is true.

Usually the only way to save them is a dose of Narcan (Naloxone) before they are totally gone.

If you suspect someone is overdosing on opiates (unresponsive....gasping for breath....sporadic labored breathing....lips turning blue....spittle or foam coming from mouth) call rescue immediately. Narcan is truly a miracle drug, and can darn near bring the "dead back to life"....but only if they get it in time.

What Part Of The Body Can You Inject Heroin, Or Other Drugs, Into?

October 2012---What Part Of The Body Can You Inject Heroin, Or Other Drugs, Into?

The short answer. Anywhere there is a vein.

The slightly longer answer. Most addicts will begin injecting their drug of choice into their arms. Usually near the bend in the elbow, at the same location the doctor usually draws your blood from. These are the people who always seem to wear clothing that will cover the needle marks on their arms. If you suspect a person in your life is injecting drugs, and they always wear long sleeved shirts......even in 100 degree July, this should be sending up a huge "red flag" to you. 

As these arm veins get "used up" they will move to other locations on their bodies. The addict must choose a new location on the body to give the used up veins time to heal. It is not uncommon for an addict to shoot up 3-5 times a day. This amount can be lower or higher, but either way you can see how quickly an area of the body could get used up. Imagine if your doctor injected your same arm veins with medication 3,4,5 times a day. Doesn't take long before you need a new injection spot.

Addicts that have been injecting for a while find they are quickly using up veins faster than they can heal. This leads to creative injection locations such as in the legs, neck, in between fingers and toes and even in parts of the male and female genitalia. Like I said in the short answer, anywhere there is a vein. Even if it sounds like an incredibly painful and unlikely injection location, I can assure you somebody has used that part of the body.

There are also times addicts will NOT inject in the arms at all. Not because their arm veins are used up, but because they know that parents, police, parole officers etc. are going to look for needle marks (track marks) on their arms. In an effort to defeat this, the addict will choose more "creative/hidden" injection locations.

So, if you have somebody in your life that you believe is injecting any type of drug, do not be fooled into believing that just because there are no needle marks on their arms they are "clean and drug free." There are many places, other than the arms, they will use.

What Is The Difference Between Powder Cocaine And Crack Cocaine?

September 2012---What Is The Difference Between Powder Cocaine And Crack Cocaine?

They have some similar properties but are distinctly different. First you must understand that crack cocaine is made from powder cocaine (and a few other ingredients).

Powder cocaine is water soluble. This allows you to snort it, smoke it, inject it, eat it or place it into body cavities. By the time it reaches the end user it has usually been "cut" so many times there are many fillers and non-cocaine ingredients in the bag of cocaine. The end user never receives pure cocaine.

Once you cook powder cocaine into crack cocaine, a chemical transformation occurs which causes the drug to convert from a water soluble substance to an oil based substance. It also "cooks out" all the non cocaine ingredients. This leave you with what is essentially pure "cocaine base" in rock form. Since it is now oil based, and not able to be dissolved in water, this means you can only smoke crack cocaine. So, if somebody tells you they saw someone snorting crack......not possible. The only thing people do with crack cocaine is smoke it.

Do All Heroin Addicts Use Needles?

September 2012---Do All Heroin Addicts Use Needles?

First lets start by explaining that heroin usually (not always) comes in a powder form ranging in color from off white to near black. The most common color in this area is brown. Heroin is also water soluble. This means you can ingest the drug in almost any way you want. Snorting, smoking, injecting, eating etc.

Almost every heroin addict I have ever met starts by snorting the drug. They all swear they will never shoot (inject) the drug, because they cannot stomach the thought of needling themselves....or needles at all. Fast forward a few months and all of them are on the needle. I cannot think of any long term heroin addict that has not converted to the needle....including all the ones who swore they never would.

They all tell you that once you have converted to the needle, you will never go back to any other ingestion method.

A Creative Way To Steal Drugs From Your House

September 2012---A Creative Way To Steal Drugs From Your House

Did you guys realize that there are people that go from open house to open house to open house? Not because they are interested in buying a house (your house). But because they know that all of us keep our pain pills and benzodiazepines (Most common ones are Ativan, Valium, Xanax) in the same places. Behind the mirror in the bathroom, in the master bedroom bedside table etc. If you have these drugs, and you are selling your house. Hide them before open houses and private showings.

Let your realtor know that people like this exist, because they may not already know this. That way your realtor can keep a closer eye on anybody that just gives him/her a bad "gut feeling". Experienced realtors have a sense of what types of people normally visit what types of open houses and private showings.

Do you quickly need to go from novice to "expert" in the world of drugs? www.chiefteach.com is the answer.
