Fentanyl is a highly addictive, synthetic pharmaceutical drug which comes in various firms including Actiq, Duragesic, Sublimaze, Abstral, Subsys, and Lazanda. Originally designed to counteract severe pain conditions, illegally manufactured fentanyl is the culprit behind millions of opioid overdoses sweeping the nation. Fentanyl abuse poses extreme risks of addiction and is even more lethal for those with elevated tolerance. Fentanyl remains one of the deadliest drugs whether taken as prescribed or used recreationally. If you live with a fentanyl addiction, you know firsthand just how life-ruining it can be. At Walden, our Southern Maryland drug rehabilitation professionals are personally committed to helping you overcome what feels impossible.
Unlike street drugs such as heroin, fentanyl is often underestimated for its addictive properties. However, the truth is that fentanyl has an extremely high likelihood for abuse and overdose, both accidental and intentional. Many people are prescribed this drug and find themselves unable to relinquish the habit after some time. This is because fentanyl is proven to substantially alter the brain’s chemicals by releasing excess amounts of dopamine.
When an individual’s central nervous system develops a tolerance for fentanyl, he or she will be forcibly dependent on the drug in order to feel “normal” once more. Once this addiction starts, it is vital you take control before it spirals out of control. Fentanyl withdrawal can range anywhere from mild to life-threatening and signs include marked irritability, chills, sweating, and restlessness.
If you or a loved one is addicted to this lethal medication, know there is hope. The next chapter of your life is just around the corner and our team at Walden will go above and beyond to help you recover as you deserve.
