Oxycontin crush - What does “oxycontin crush” mean?

oxycontin crush“Oxycontin crush” is a term that refers to the practice crushing oxycontin tablets so that the drug can be snorted, swallowed, or injected. The reason that abusers of oxycontin will typically crush oxycontin tablets is that crushing the tablets circumvents the time-release function that the tablets’ coating provides. Oxycontin is designed to release a steady dose over time, which is effective for sufferers of chronic pain. Oxycontin abusers who seek an immediate, powerful, and euphoric high will crush oxycontin pills, because when oxycontin is crushed and ingested, the dose is delivered all at once rather than over time. Hence the term oxycontin crush.
