Overcome Your Fentanyl Addiction Now
In the realm of opioids, it does not get much more potent or dangerous than fentanyl. This medication is a synthetic opioid reserved for the most extreme types of pain, such as cancer patients, post-surgical recovery and those undergoing lethal injection. It is similar to morphine in composition, but is approximately 50 to 100 times more powerful, and is now among the leading causes of overdose deaths in the United States.
Fentanyl and other synthetic opioids are quickly becoming the dominant substance abuse threat facing the country. Overdose deaths involving the drug are up exponentially in most American states and account for around half of the overall opioid deaths in the country, according to data from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. If you or someone you care about has fallen victim to fentanyl addiction, it is crucial that you seek help immediately.

The intense physical and psychological toll that fentanyl withdrawal takes on victims mandates professional, compassionate and safe medically supervised detoxification. Patients cannot and should not be expected to handle the rigors of this disease on their own. Trained physicians and nurses can provide safe and expert relief of intense symptoms and intervene in the event of a medical emergency. After patients are medically stabilized, they may be eligible for medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which includes buprenorphine (Suboxone®). After or during detoxification, patients should also receive comprehensive behavioral therapy and ongoing medical care to address root causes and associated medical symptoms of their condition.
