Fentanyl is an extremely potent and dangerous opioid. It has become one of the most destructive substances in the Canadian opioid crisis.
A user can overdose on a very small amount of fentanyl. It is estimated to be around 100 times more potent than heroin. Substances sold in the illegal market as other drugs such as heroin or cocaine now often contain fentanyl, making people far more likely to overdose. Once a person has developed a dependence on fentanyl, it is essential that they seek professional support to stop using.
Symptoms and Effects of Fentanyl Addiction
Fentanyl effects receptors in the brain, suppressing feelings of pain and causing a high in the user through surges of neurotransmitters. Over time, the drug changes the brain’s structure, making it more difficult to stop using. Short-term side effects from fentanyl use include nausea, difficulty sleeping, loss of appetite, headache, nausea and vomiting.
Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms
Withdrawal from fentanyl is an intensely difficult and potentially dangerous process. In some cases, the body has become so dependent on the drug that withdrawal can be fatal. The withdrawal process often involves aches, chills, nausea, vomiting, difficulty sleeping and various other symptoms. Trafalgar Addiction Treatment Centres provides medical detox for clients experiencing fentanyl withdrawal.
Withdrawal side effects from fentanyl can cause a lethal consequences which is why prior to fentanyl addiction treatment most clients would go through a supervised fentanyl detox. It impossible to predict if fentanyl withdrawal will be fatally dangerous, yet withdrawal symptoms are extremely harsh and must be treated in a supervised detox centre before being admitted for addiction treatment. We work in association with an outside medical detox provider and are able to seamlessly transition the client from detox directly into a Trafalgar rehab centre.
