Fentanyl is an opioid used primarily for severe and chronic pain relief such as cancer and post-operative patients, which has found its way to the street through the black market. It is illegally manufactured as well. It is highly addictive and can quickly develop into a Fentanyl Use Disorder (FUD). The cost to life is staggering. Fentanyl is one of the deadliest drugs in the US and a leading cause of rising overdose deaths. 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine, even the tiniest dose of fentanyl can kill a person. It is the chief drug overdose killer nationwide and is often ingested unknowingly, for example in marijuana laced with fentanyl. Consequently, fentanyl rehab is more essential now than ever.

Avenues Recovery recognizes the tragedy Fentanyl has now brought to the US. We are a detox and residential addiction treatment center that is focused on helping people to leave the vicious cycle of fentanyl addiction. At Avenues, those struggling with fentanyl addiction will be embraced by a compassionate, non-judgmental community. It is a place where you will be given a blueprint to regain control, leave bad habits behind, and learn new skills to sustain growth and recovery. A staff of incomparably dedicated addiction professionals guides you every step of the way, and a support system is built that will help you weather all adversity and emerge stronger.

The Importance of Fentanyl Rehab

Fentanyl addiction should be seen as a disease which must be treated. Ignoring symptoms causes irreparable damage.

Dependence on this substance often leads to:

  • homelessness
  • loss of jobs 
  • severe damage to relationships and family units
  • long term health issues
  • death

Finding the fentanyl addiction treatment provider that works for you is the most important step someone struggling can take to regain their health and a productive lifestyle. Making the choice to enter fentanyl rehab can be the true turning point in the life of a person struggling with this addiction.

Fentanyl Addiction Treatment Programs 

Every person dealing with fentanyl addiction is different and treatment plans therefore reflect that. Professional addiction counselors will tailor fentanyl treatment plans to suit each individual’s specific strengths and weaknesses.

Phases of Fentanyl Addiction Treatment

The first step of fentanyl addiction treatment is generally detoxification. 

Detox takes place under 24-hour supervision and care. We make certain that all fentanyl withdrawal symptoms and possible medical complications are closely managed. 

Once the body is cleansed of the harmful toxins caused by fentanyl abuse, a client is transferred to a residential program. At Avenues Recovery, this is conveniently located at the same location. This localized continuum of care lets patients build on the trust already established with our staff during the detox stage. Insecurities and fears common to entering treatment are significantly lessened.

Following the residential treatment program, individuals can either be discharged or can enter into a sober living program. This helps clients to adjust to daily life while still in a safe environment free of triggers.

Treatment Modalities Used in Fentanyl Rehab Programs

Included in the treatment methods used at fentanyl rehab centers such as Avenues Recovery are:

  • Detoxification
  • Medication management (Medication-assisted treatment when deemed appropriate)
  • Individual therapy
  • Group therapy
  • CBT Therapy
  • DBT Therapy
  • Family counseling and therapy

Support Systems in Fentanyl Drug Rehab

Community is a bedrock of the Avenues philosophy. Long lasting friendships and support systems are built through group therapy sessions, team building activities, and frequent field trips taken together. Isolation is common [1] to people suffering from fentanyl addiction and being part of a recovery family is crucial for sustained wellness.

Family Involvement

Including family members in the recovery of their loved one’s healing from fentanyl addiction is very important to us. Counseling and family sessions are available, and attendance is welcomed and encouraged. Feedback from the people who intimately understand a client’s background and struggles are an integral part of how we provide addiction treatment. We consider family as our full partners to sustained recovery.
