Fentanyl Addiction Treatment

Steps Recovery Center recognizes how vital the mind, body, and spirit are in their connection to the whole person. We take a holistic approach to treating drug addiction that includes treating the whole person, and find that it tends to be more successful, especially since drug addiction affects every aspect of a person’s life. With a customized and individualized program, a holistic approach just makes sense. It affords an opportunity to meet the patient’s physical and psychological needs and allows them to engage physically, emotionally, and mentally.

What is Fentanyl?

A schedule II controlled substance, fentanyl is a powerful opioid to relieve moderate to severe pain; it was first synthesized in 1960 by Paul Janssen and is one of the most prescribed medications and is also one of the most addictive substances. Fentanyl comes in several forms, such as:

Addiction to Fentanyl

When used on a short-term basis, fentanyl is effective and is likely to cause addiction; however, when it continues to be used, and in more copious amounts, it can quickly lead to tolerance of the drug for someone who has a predisposition to addiction. For example, children from alcoholics are three times more likely to become addicted as an adult in comparison to children with non-alcohol parents, according to the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress.

Health issues may also increase the risk of dependence on fentanyl, and those who started out using it on a short-term basis, end up with an addiction. Mental health disorders factor in a propensity for tolerance as well. Signs of addiction include:

Fentanyl Addiction Recovery

Choosing to get help for your addiction is not easy but is necessary. It will take time and require a customized treatment program that enables someone to detox and prevent relapse with tools they have learned in recovery. It’s recommended for people to enroll in an addiction treatment center to ensure someone going through fentanyl withdrawal can safely detox.

This treatment center allows the person to have a team of professionals who are there to care for and support the individual. For example, if a person is struggling with detox, a nurse may give someone medication to help them with withdrawal symptoms. Those medications include buprenorphine and methadone and need to be given under supervision for safety reasons.

A treatment center will enable the addict to have comprehensive care that involves holistic techniques like meditation, mindfulness, stress reduction, exercise, nutrition, counseling, and the like. The individual will have counseling sessions, either individually or in a group setting. They will be taught a new and healthier way of coping with and managing their feelings and emotions. Those who have a co-occurring mental health issue can be addressed, which may help with the prevention of relapse.
