Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50 to 100 times more powerful morphine. It’s a prescription medication intended to treat severe pain, pain after surgery, or pain that isn’t resolved by other opioid medications.
Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for people who start using fentanyl as prescribed to become addicted. Illegal production has skyrocketed in recent years, and fentanyl has flooded the streets. As a result, fentanyl abuse and related deaths have surged in the last decade. From 2010 to 2016 deaths related to synthetic opioids including fentanyl jumped from around 3,000 to more than 19,400.
Like other opioids, fentanyl changes the chemistry of the brain and leads to drug tolerance. Over time a person must use more and more of the drug to get the same effect. This can lead to addiction and physical dependence.
The good news is that, with the right help, fentanyl recovery is possible.

Fentanyl withdrawals can be intense. That’s why it’s so important for people who are physically dependent or who are unable to quit on their own to undergo medically supervised fentanyl detox. Our clinical staff monitors clients 24/7 and ensures they safely detox from fentanyl as comfortably as possible.
Clients who detox at our rehab facility first undergo an evaluation of their substance use history, patterns of use, and current use. Once a client has completed detox, he or she can transition into our residential treatment program, or if appropriate, our intensive outpatient program.
