Fentanyl Addiction Treatment

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid drug. It’s more potent than heroin or morphine and has been a hot topic in recent years. According to the Centers for Disease Control, fentanyl and other synthetic opioids are the substances most frequently involved in overdose deaths, with around 150 people dying from an overdose related to synthetic opioids each day. Treatment for fentanyl addiction can be life-saving. If you’re looking for fentanyl addiction treatment, you’re in the right place. So, what should you know? Read further to learn more about the signs and symptoms of fentanyl addiction, the long-term health risks associated with fentanyl abuse, and how our programs can help you or someone you know heal. 



Signs and Symptoms of Fentanyl Addiction

Fentanyl can affect your mind, body, and behavior. Knowing the signs of fentanyl addiction may help you identify it in yourself or a loved one, which can be the first step toward getting treatment. Fentanyl might be paired with other drugs and can be used in different ways, which may affect some of the signs and symptoms you notice. With that in mind, symptoms of fentanyl addiction may include but aren’t limited to the following:

  • Constipation and other gastrointestinal effects (e.g., nausea)
  • Mental or physical withdrawal symptoms when one is unable to obtain fentanyl
  • Decreased performance at work, school, or in other vital parts of life 
  • Social isolation or withdrawal from loved ones
  • Loss of interest in activities one used to enjoy
  • Difficulty breathing or slowed breathing
  • An increased need for secrecy or privacy
  • Drowsiness or sedation
  • Personality changes 
  • Constricted pupils
  • Unconsciousness
  • Memory problems
  • Mood swings
  • Confusion
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Euphoria 


Long-Term Health Risks of Fentanyl Abuse

Unfortunately, many of the possible effects of using fentanyl don’t just affect people short term. Some effects can also be long-term or permanent. The likelihood of some serious risks associated with fentanyl abuse may increase if it is paired with other drugs or is not tested prior to usage. Long-term effects of fentanyl abuse may include but aren’t limited to the following:

  • Problems in interpersonal relationships or family life caused by fentanyl use
  • Problems at work or school (including job loss) caused by fentanyl use
  • New or worsening mental health concerns 
  • Liver and kidney damage or failure
  • Physical dependence
  • Financial problems
  • Legal problems 
  • Brain changes 
  • Memory loss
  • Overdose 
  • Death
  • Coma


Our Programs

Prevail Recovery Center offers outpatient-only fentanyl addiction treatment. While all of our programs or care levels are outpatient, they all serve specific purposes and require a different time commitment. This may make one program or level of care more or less suitable for you or your loved one seeking addiction treatment. We offer all of the following levels of care. If you are still determining which level of care is right for you at this time, our admissions staff can help you decide. 

Discontinuing the use of substances can come with uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. This can make it more challenging to stop using drugs and alcohol. A detoxification or detox program aims to help you get sober safely and with less discomfort. We offer outpatient detoxification programs for clients who experience less severe withdrawal symptoms and do not require inpatient detox. Clients looking for fentanyl addiction treatment may find that outpatient detox is a good fit for them. In our outpatient detox programs, you’ll work closely with medical and mental health staff for treatments like therapy and medication management. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is available for clients who benefit from it. If you are someone who requires inpatient detox, we can give you a referral. 

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) provide the most intensive addiction treatment you can get without being in an inpatient or residential program. PHP requires that you attend therapy for most of the day, almost every day. The time commitment is similar to that of a full-time job, so clients should generally expect to take time off of work if they attend PHP. Our partial hospitalization programs provide a truly immersive treatment experience and include various treatments, such as groups, individual therapy sessions, family therapy, and medication management. Like in all of our other programs, your care plan will be tailored to meet your unique needs.

Intensive outpatient programs (IOP) are one step down from PHP in terms of intensity. They require a substantially lower time commitment and do not require you to attend treatment daily. However, you will still attend treatment multiple days each week while in IOP and can still develop a close relationship with your treatment team. Due to the lower time commitment, IOP can be ideal for those who need to fulfill external commitments (e.g., work or school) while in treatment or for those who are stepping down from a higher level of care, like PHP. Similar to those in PHP, our IOP clients engage in regular groups, individual therapy sessions, and other treatments. 

Our other outpatient programs are often used as a step-down form of care. This is because they require a very low time commitment and offer the most flexibility. Continued outpatient care can entail several different practices depending on the person but may include continued groups, individual therapy, and medication management. 


Reasons to Choose Us

For some of those in search of fentanyl addiction treatment at Prevail Recovery Center will be their first treatment experience. Others may have been to treatment before. We are here to give you the best treatment experience possible. Alongside our specialized programs and expert staff members, here are some of the reasons clients choose us. 

It is very common for people with substance use disorders to live with at least one other mental health condition. We provide dual diagnosis care for clients in search of fentanyl addiction treatment or treatment for any other substance use disorder who also have one or more additional mental health concerns. 

While it is not a required part of any of our programs, we maintain sober living (also called supportive housing) facilities for those interested in a dedicated drug and alcohol-free living space. This can be helpful if your address is far from our outpatient treatment center. You do not have to be part of a treatment program to live in supportive housing.

We use research-backed treatments proven to help people overcome addiction. If you’re interested in a distinct type of therapy or treatment activity and aren’t sure whether we offer it, please contact us for more information.
