Fentanyl is a prescription painkiller that belongs to the opioid family of drugs that also includes morphine, hydrocodone, heroin, and many others. It is a schedule II controlled substance because of its high potential for abuse and dependence. The only approved uses for fentanyl are to treat breakthrough pain in cancer patients who are already using another opioid and have become tolerant to opioids and for round-the-clock management of long-term, severe, and chronic pain.

Fentanyl overdose is the most serious risk of abusing the drug. It is between 50 and 100 times more potent than morphine and 50 times stronger than heroin. Fentanyl can easily cause a fatal overdose in anyone from the first-time user to a person who has been abusing opioids for years. Fentanyl overdoses have been increasing in recent years, even though prescriptions for it have been decreasing. This may be a result of it being added to illicit drugs, like heroin and cocaine, without the user’s knowledge.

Fentanyl addiction treatment is essential for anyone who has been abusing this drug. The benefits of seeking out professional treatment include a greater chance of recovery and long-term sobriety, a reduced risk of experiencing a fatal overdose, getting better support from family, and identifying and managing underlying mental illnesses that may contribute to addictive behaviors. Fentanyl is extremely dangerous, and overdose deaths involving this prescription are on the rise. Treatment saves lives.

Fentanyl Addiction Treatment

The single most important benefit of seeking out treatment for fentanyl addiction is to prevent a fatal overdose. In fact, seeking treatment for abuse of fentanyl, not just addiction, can help prevent accidental deaths because it is so easy to overdose and die when misusing this drug, even the first time.

Residential treatment is the best option for anyone suffering from fentanyl addiction. This extremely dangerous drug addiction needs professional medical attention immediately. Fentanyl addiction treatment facilities are the best way to focus solely on recovery, and also identify and treat any co-occurring mental health disorders.

Fentanyl Addiction Treatment Options

Each patient will require an individualized treatment plan tailored to their needs to treat fentanyl addiction. A medically supervised detox is where the recovery journey will begin.

  • Safe Detox. Anyone who tries to stop using fentanyl without professional support and treatment runs a very serious risk of failure and relapse. Withdrawal and the resulting cravings can be intense enough to cause most people to use again, and then the cycle of abuse begins all over. There are medications that can be administered during professional detox treatment that reduce the severity of withdrawal and make the entire process more likely to be successful.
  • Residential Treatment. Choosing to seek care and treatment in a rehab facility provides a medically supervised detoxification, medications if necessary, therapy, as well as alternative and holistic approaches to healing. A good treatment program for fentanyl abuse and addiction will include screening for mental illnesses. They often co-occur with substance use disorders and can contribute to substance abuse.
  • Therapy. A variety of therapies are used to treat fentanyl addiction, including individual, behavioral, group, and family therapy. Family-based therapies are extremely helpful for those suffering from addiction and their family members.

Inpatient Fentanyl Addiction Treatment

A fentanyl addiction treatment center is the best option for you or your loved one suffering from fentanyl addiction. The environment is designed for recovery ensuring a safe and successful detox and support during the whole recovery process. Patients at a rehab facility for fentanyl addiction have a comprehensive treatment plan that is unique to their individual needs. Treatment includes education and training for families in how to better support a loved one who will be struggling to avoid relapse once back at home.

Relapse after stopping the use of a drug is not uncommon, but it is dangerous and can lead to binges that may be fatal. Professional treatment involves strategies to prevent relapse, including aftercare planning and programs that help patients transition from intensive treatment to life back at home. Relapse is always possible, with residential treatment and aftercare the risk can be significantly reduced.
