Fentanyl Drug Rehab
What is Fentanyl?
Also known as Fentanil or brand names such as Actiq, Duragesic, Durogesic, Fentora, Instanyl, and Sublimaze, Fentanyl is a strong agonist of the kappa and mu opiate receptors of the brain. It is considered a very potent narcotic painkiller or analgesic. It is most commonly prescribed for “breakthrough” pain and pre-surgical procedures. Additionally, it is considered to be 100 times more potent than morphine, and a powerfully addictive drug.
During the mid 1970’s, pharmaceutical Fentanyl became a prescription medication that was being sold on the streets in illegal distribution circles. It is classified as a powerful narcotic and is one of the drugs that the DEA currently views as a primary drug threat in the US as far as illegally trafficked painkillers are concerned. Many health professionals also view Fentanyl as a major public health threat because an overdose of the drug can be fatal in most cases.
Fentanyl Dependency and Addiction
Fentanyl has demonstrated a high potential for abuse, and oftentimes leads to physical and/or psychological dependency and addiction. As a result, numerous addiction treatment and recovery centers now offer Fentanyl drug rehab programs for dealing with addiction to and dependency on this drug. The tolerance to Fentanyl can build up rapidly and the dependence on it, or addiction, is typically evidenced by the need to ingest more of the drug in order to achieve the desired effect.
The majority of the Fentanyl drug rehab programs offered at traditional addiction treatment and recovery centers do not effectively treat dependence or addiction. Typically, when the individual leaves their facility and returns home to their community, there is an 80% chance that they will relapse back into the addiction. This happens because the traditional addiction treatment and recovery centers do not offer the education and recovery tools and individual needs to make better choices once they are out of the center.
