Fentanyl Detox in Hauppauge NY

Fentanyl Detox in Hauppauge NY

Fentanyl addiction is challenging to conquer alone or without medical supervision and specialized medications that reduce the extreme withdrawal symptoms that this addiction causes. For people that have become addicted to fentanyl, they experience similar withdrawal symptoms that occur for people addicted to other potent opiates, like heroin, oxycodone, and morphine. Additionally, since fentanyl is now being used to make heroin more potent or to cut other drugs to increase the effects, many people who use drugs cut with fentanyl become inadvertently addicted.

Fentanyl binds to the same opioid receptors as other opioid drugs. However, because fentanyl is nearly 100 times stronger than other opiate drugs, the person using it experiences even worse withdrawal symptoms, and they occur quicker. The symptoms that fentanyl addiction causes once a person has not taken more fentanyl start as early as a few hours (3-5) from their last use. Heroin and other opiates more commonly cause a person to experience withdrawal symptoms after several hours (8-10) or even days.

Fentanyl withdrawal symptoms include body aches and chills, sweating, inability to remain still mainly in the legs and arms ( also known as kicking), runny nose and fever, stomach pain, vomiting, diarrhea, emotional instability, hallucinations, depression, and severe anxiety. Since the withdrawal symptoms associated with fentanyl addiction mostly cause physical discomfort, the people that are addicted to fentanyl cannot tolerate the discomfort and will do anything to get more fentanyl to get relief. The desperation that fentanyl addicts experience to feel better physically will often cause them to overtake Fentanyl and overdose accidentally.

Attempting to detox without professional help is very dangerous. Many people will try to go cold turkey and only last a few days, and that is when the potential for accidental overdose is most likely to occur from fentanyl addiction. A person’s body will rapidly expel the fentanyl from their systems. Once this begins the body quickly adapts, and a person’s tolerance returns to normal, which is dangerous for the addict. Tolerance levels increase soon after a person has been using fentanyl or other opiates, which means they need more than double the amount that they once took to feel the same effects. That is how people overdose easily from fentanyl because they think they can handle as much as they were using before their bodies began to detoxify.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse reiterates how drastic the physical withdrawal symptoms are that fentanyl addiction will cause and explains that medications are necessary to help a person get through the withdrawal symptoms.

People addicted to Fentanyl who stop using it can have severe withdrawal symptoms that begin as early as a few hours after the drug was last taken. These symptoms include muscle and bone pain, sleep problems, diarrhea and vomiting, cold flashes with goosebumps, uncontrollable leg movements, and severe cravings. These symptoms can be extremely uncomfortable and are the reason many people find it so difficult to stop taking Fentanyl. There are medicines to help with the withdrawal process for Fentanyl and other opioids. (NIDA)

The types of medications that the fentanyl detox centers in New York prescribe are effective and safe. They allow a person to go through detox safely and comfortably. The center that we work with for fentanyl detoxification prescribes buprenorphine (Suboxone) methadone and other medications to help a person sleep, prevent cold and flu-like symptoms from worsening, as well as medications to help with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Although the physical withdrawal symptoms are what most fentanyl addicts remain the drug to avoid emotional withdrawal symptoms are as urgent to treat during the detox process.
