Introduction to Fentanyl

Millions of people every day are forced to live in pain thanks to accidents, injuries, and disease. Thankfully, doctors have found an effective way to help people deal with their pain, even for long periods. There is an entire category of drugs known as opioids that are prescribed to help treat and manage all types of different pain. The trouble is, like most other substances that exist, these substances are highly addictive. While all opioids are addictive, there is one that is much more dangerous and addictive than all the rest, fentanyl. In fact, fentanyl is so addictive that it is only prescribed and used in highly controlled medical settings.

Though it is so incredibly addictive, because of its potency as a pain reliever, it is still one of the most widely prescribed and widely used drugs in America to treat pain. This makes it especially dangerous for people who are being given it to treat chronic pain, as many people become addicted without even realizing it.

What is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a powerful pain-relieving drug that belongs to the category of drugs known as opioids. Unlike other opioids in the group, fentanyl is a synthetic drug, meaning that it is artificial. Ever since its creation and widespread adoption for use in the treatment of chronic pain, it has become not only the most widely used opioid in America, but also the most abused and the most deadly. 

Among all opioids, fentanyl has taken the top spot as the most addictive and deadly of the bunch, which has led to what many call the opioid epidemic. People are becoming addicted even without abusing the drug, but because of the effects the drug produces, many people are choosing to abuse it as well. While both drugs are dangerous, fentanyl can be as high as 50 times more potent than heroin

Why is Fentanyl So Addictive?

There are several reasons why fentanyl is so addictive, even compared to other similar drugs in the same category. 

First, as we mentioned, fentanyl is the most widely prescribed and used out of all of the opioids currently available today. This means that many more people are using it. Even with regulations in place, this increases the potential that people are going to become addicted. 

Because of how effective it is, people have begun using it recreationally and even buying fentanyl off the street that is not from a medical supply and may be laced with any manner of other drugs. Fentanyl, like other opioids, produces a feeling of calm and relaxation, and some even report feeling a sense of euphoria. This feeling is what many people seek out, which is why it is so addictive. 

Fentanyl is addictive because it changes the chemistry of the brain. All opioids act on the pain receptors in the brain and central nervous system. Over time they begin to change the way the brain and nervous system function to the point where the body needs the drug to function normally, this is what we know as addiction. 

The only way to get clean of an addiction like fentanyl is with professional help. We are here for you whenever you need us here at Atlanta Recovery.

What Are the Signs of Fentanyl Use?

If you suspect that a loved one is using fentanyl, it is important to recognize the signs. Generally, when someone is using the drug, they will seem more calm and relaxed, as though they are “spaced out.” You may also notice slowed reactions to stimuli, and a lack of interest in once-pleasurable activities. 

They also will become detached from family and friends and instead focus only on using more of the drug. This can lead to health problems and many other concerns. The longer a person uses fentanyl, the higher the likelihood of an overdose. Because of its potency, it is very easy for a person to overdose outside of their medically recommended dosage. 

Getting your loved one to get help for an addiction can be tricky. We’re here to help you talk with your loved one and get them to agree to treatment. Don’t leave it up to chance. Bring your loved one to our addiction treatment center in Georgia for Fentanyl treatment today.

How to Treat Fentanyl Addiction

Fentanyl is often treated much more carefully than other drugs. It is best treated in a medically supervised setting, as prolonged use raises the risk of health complications and potential death. Traditional addiction treatment can work with fentanyl, but the most important step is the initial detoxification, as this can have dramatic health consequences. 

Many times it may be necessary to use medication to assist with the treatment process to help block the effects of the drug so that clients are safe and can continue through the treatment process. Withdrawal reactions can be quite severe, which is why medical supervision is recommended, and in some cases, depending on how long they have been addicted and how much they were using, it may be a good idea to enroll in a treatment plan that offers partial hospitalization. Once a person is completely free of the drug from their system, they can begin treatment like normal.
