Opiate Addiction What You May Not Know About
This Drug
  • Initially produced in Belgium in the late 1950s,
    Fentanyl a synthetic opiate however, became
    popular in the 90s. Subsequently, with the
    release of the patch, it gained more popularity.
    Soon after, the lollipop version emerged and the
    very obvious abuse was at an all-time high.
    Meanwhile, addicts had figured out that cutting
    the patches and directly swallowing, injecting or
    snorting the drug would cut the time release.
  • Fentanyl obviously pulled its weight when it came
    to its street value. Often used by addicts as a
    substitute for heroin and it is known by various
    names on the street such as Tango and Cash,
    Apache, Perc-O-Pop and China White. In a bid to
    get the same high as heroin, addicts would most
    times end up overdosing on this drug.

Facts about Fentanyl Addiction and Treatment
  • What is detox?
  • This is the onset of treatment. And it
    facilitates the clearing of the drug from the
    body system. Since the body is used to enjoying
    the presence of the drug, patients may experience
    withdrawal symptoms. These may come in form of
    excessing sweating, nausea, vomiting, and
    diarrhea, abdominal pains, anxiety, muscle
    spasms, insomnia, Goosebumps and runny nose among
    others.
  • Combating the withdrawal symptom
  • Because of the intense discomfort that comes with
    the withdrawal symptoms, the medical centers
    specialists may have to prescribe certain
    medication to help combat or manage them, as well
    as aid to shorten the detox process period. In
    the case of severe nausea, stomach cramps,
    vomiting and diarrhea, other medications may be
    prescribed to normalize the body functions.

Help During Fentanyl Addiction Treatment
  • Several aspects will determine the type of
    treatment to be sought that is why it is
    important to have a professional examination to
    assist make the right decision. The factors that
    will be used to settle for the most appropriate
    program channel include
  • Whether there will be need for medically assisted
    detox
  • The need for continuous ongoing treatment, in a
    case where medical complication may arise during
    drug overdose
  • The need for new skills impartation and
    reintegration into a healthier personality
  • Need for support therapy that will address any
    concurrent depressive disorder, bipolar disorder
    or anxiety
  • And the need for personalized aftercare

Fentanyl Addiction Treatment to Avoid Serious
Complications
  • If you do not receive fentanyl addiction
    treatment in a timely manner, you would end up
    experiencing long-term psychological effects.
    Sustained fentanyl abuse may lead to the
    following problems
  • It puts you at an increased risk of sustaining
    anoxic injury, which refers to damage done to the
    body tissues because of significantly low levels
    of oxygen in the body. Overtime, this can damage
    multiple organ systems and cause serious
    complications.
  • It puts you at an increased risk of experiencing
    serious overdose symptoms. You quickly build
    tolerance to whatever dose of fentanyl you are
    already taking, which means you will have to
    increase the dose constantly to create a high,
    and this will eventually lead to overdose that
    can cause life-threatening complications.
  • It damages your personal life and relationships.
    You will be in a state of confusion all the time
    with no sense of responsibility, and this is
    going to hit you financially and may even push
    your loved ones further from you.
  • It makes your existing health conditions even
    worse. This is especially true if you are already
    suffering from clinical depression. Sustained
    fentanyl abuse can make depression symptoms worse
    and increase your risk of doing harm to yourself.

Simple Ways to Determine the Cost of Receiving
Fentanyl Addiction Treatment
  • You will be paying less for short-term (30 days)
    addiction programs. These programs involve
    clearing your body and mind from fentanyl
    addiction. The objectives are achieved through
    detox, group counselling, and continuing care
    planning.
  • You will be paying a lot more for extended
    addiction programs that may last for 60 days. The
    services are the same as you receive in
    short-term addiction programs, but you can spend
    more time in a rehab center to get better
    results.
  • You will find long-term addiction programs to be
    most expensive. These programs last for 90 days
    and are suitable for people with severe addiction
    issues. You may want to consider this program if
    you have relapsed many times. Services usually
    stay the same as in other programs, but you will
    be supervised for a longer period to stay sober.

Two Issues That May Stop You from Receiving
Fentanyl Addiction Treatment
  • Financial Worries
  • It is natural to feel concerned about the cost of
    a rehab stay. Many people do not have enough
    money to enter a high quality rehab center, and
    this keeps them from overcoming their drug
    addiction. You can certainly try a detox at home,
    but that is not going to work when you have a
    serious fentanyl addiction.
  • Job Concerns
  • It is another genuine concern because you might
    have to leave your job or at least take time off
    work to be in rehab.

What Should You Expect in Different Phases of
Rehab?
  • The first phase of rehab involves determining the
    course of treatment. It means that medical staff
    will interview you and ask certain questions to
    get an idea about how serious your addiction is.
    They may ask you about your history of drug abuse
    as well as family history of drug addiction. You
    may also have to tell them for how long you have
    been abusing fentanyl and how much you take
    regularly. They will also ask you about any
    pre-existing mental health issues.
  • The second phase of rehab involves getting rid of
    fentanyl traces that may be in your body. This
    detox phase is of immense importance and lays the
    foundation of a successful recovery. You will
    have to work closely with your doctor who may
    prescribe some medicines like buprenorphine to
    help you deal with withdrawal symptoms. Depending
    on your unique circumstances, withdrawal symptoms
    can be quite serious, which is why medical detox
    is always a better choice. Your doctor may stick
    to maintenance medication therapy that includes
    Suboxone, Bunavail, and Zubsolv.

What Should You Expect in Different Phases of
Rehab?
  • The third phase involves getting along with other
    patients who have recovered from addiction or
    have already gone past the detox phase.
    Individual and group therapy is of immense
    importance because it helps you achieve best
    treatment outcomes. It is actually a good idea to
    incorporate these approaches early on in your
    treatment. One-on-one sessions with a therapist
    will go a long way in helping you understand how
    to deal with your withdrawal symptoms and prevent
    relapses.
  • The final phase of rehab is aftercare. It
    actually starts when you complete your rehab
    program. You can expect certain services during
    this phase, such as sober housing, counselling,
    and ongoing therapy. Do not underestimate the
    importance of aftercare because it helps you
    maintain your sobriety while making the
    transition back into life.
