Our Transformative Fentanyl Rehab

Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid. The chemical composition and its effects are similar to morphine. However, fentanyl can be up to 100 times more potent. In a medical setting, it is prescribed to patients who are experiencing chronic or severe pain. When purchased illicitly, it comes as a powder or is added into other drugs.

In 2019, fentanyl overdoses accounted for an estimated 51% of all drug overdoses in the United States. Illegal manufacturing of fentanyl makes its strength unpredictable. Fentanyl is often added into other sedative-like substances. Adding fentanyl to other substances increases the probability of an overdose. Fentanyl has accounted for nearly 60% of all opioid-related deaths. This number continues to rise as the drug continues to gain popularity amongst substance users.

Fentanyl is highly addictive and can be ingested in many ways. Synthetic fentanyl can be dispensed in many forms. It can be sold as a powder, put into eyedroppers or nasal sprays, or pressed into pills that resemble other prescription opioids. 

The pill form of fentanyl is usually pressed into the shape of other popular prescription medication. Users may think they are taking something like Xanax or Percocet, but are unknowingly taking fentanyl. Repeated use of fentanyl can quickly spiral into addiction.

Behavioral Effects of Fentanyl Addiction

Fentanyl works by binding to the brain’s opioid receptors. Over time, the brain begins to adapt to the presence of the receptor-bound fentanyl. This is how an addiction develops. Eventually, the brain will require more substances to achieve the same effects of a pain-free and euphoric experience. Many users will be unable to feel normal without it.

A tolerance to fentanyl can make normal everyday emotions and physical pain feel impossible to deal with. The natural feelings of pleasure become nonexistent. At this point, addiction consumes the body- making craving the drug both a physical and emotional need. Some of the emotional effects of using fentanyl include extreme feelings of happiness, mood swings, confusion, and anger.

Physical Effects of Fentanyl Abuse

Without treatment and support, fentanyl addiction can be life-threatening. Some of the most common side effects of fentanyl abuse include:

  • Sedation
  • Nausea  
  • Irregular heartbeat 
  • Loss of appetite 
  • Decreased urine flow 
  • Physical dependence  
  • Slowed breathing  
  • Death

Because the body is quick to adapt to fentanyl, withdrawal symptoms can develop once drug use has rapidly decreased or stopped. These symptoms can include runny nose, watery eyes, sweating and chills. Other symptoms result in muscle and joint pain, stomach and back pain and an increased heart rate. Addicts can also experience increased blood pressure along with severe anxiety and depression.
