What Is Fentanyl?
Fentanyl is a synthetic pain killer 80-100 times stronger than Heroin. Fentanyl is one of the deadliest drugs on the market. Typically unresponsive to single doses of Narcan/Naloxone, Fentanyl deaths doubled those of methamphetamines, cocaine, and prescription opioids in 2019.
50,000 people overdosed and died using opioids in 2019. Of those, 70% died using synthetic opioids like fentanyl. Prescription fentanyl can be injected, placed on a patch, or ingested in lozenge form. Illegal forms of the substance come in powder, dropped onto blotter paper, put into eye droppers or nasal sprays, or made into pills that mimic other drugs.
Some of what makes fentanyl most deadly is how cheap it is to make and add to other drugs. Often dealers will lace other drugs with fentanyl to cheaply increase the high. These combinations can be deadly.
Overdosing on fentanyl can lead to reduced breathing causing unconsciousness, coma, and death.
Why Is It Important to Seek Fentanyl Recovery at a Facility?
Like morphine, fentanyl attaches to the pain receptors on nerves and releases excess amounts of dopamine and incentivizes the reward receptors in the brain to want the drug.
It is important to see fentanyl recovery at a facility to help mitigate some of the withdrawal symptoms from using fentanyl. Withdrawal symptoms include: muscle and bone pain, sleep disturbances, diarrhea and vomiting, dehydration, cold flashes with goosebumps, uncontrollable leg movements, and severe cramping.
Some fentanyl rehabs offer Medically Assisted Treatment to support clients going through withdrawal. Through this process medication that binds the pain receptors like fentanyl, can be used to lessen withdrawal symptoms and support clients in their transition to a sober lifestyle.
How Do You Pursue Fentanyl Recovery?
When pursuing fentanyl recovery, it is important to select a rehab facility that has treated individuals with opioid abuse disorders. By choosing a facility that has, clients can be sure that the medical professionals are prepared and familiar with the drug and its effects.
Additionally, while most fentanyl recovery centers that offer detoxification have it medically monitored, it may be worth determining what kind of Medically Assisted Treatment they can offer.
Finally, when pursuing fentanyl recovery, it is important to consider what individualized treatments rehab centers can offer to support your substance abuse. By selecting a combination of traditional evidence-based therapies and alternative mindfulness and movement therapy, fentanyl addicts can heal their mind and body through treatment.
