Fentanyl Detox Programs in Islip, NY

Fentanyl Detox Programs in Islip, NY

Fentanyl is a powerful man-made (synthetic) opioid drug that has virtually taken over drug-seeking populations, especially those who use opiate drugs like heroin or prescription pain killers. Fentanyl addiction increased amid the opioid epidemic from 2005 to the present. Illegal production of Fentanyl from China and Mexico has allowed drug dealers to infiltrate the streets with a cheaper and more potent opioid drug to increase their profits even more during the crisis. Fentanyl is up to 100 times more potent than morphine and can easily cause a person to overdose. Drug dealers either sell Fentanyl as is, directly to addicts, or cut other drugs with Fentanyl to make it stronger and more addictive.

Unfortunately, many people have become addicted to Fentanyl without knowing it. There is an outstanding number of medical and police accounts of Fentanyl being found in heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines (i.e., Xanax), and other substances, which were cut with Fentanyl. Illegal Fentanyl is cheap to produce and requires only a tiny amount to cause a person to feel high. The danger with Fentanyl is that it can kill an unsuspecting drug user, but also that it will cause physical addiction rapidly.

When a person has become addicted to Fentanyl, they will begin to experience withdrawal symptoms. The withdrawal symptoms that Fentanyl causes mirror withdrawal symptoms from other powerful opiates such as heroin, Oxycontin, Dilaudid, and others. The withdrawal symptoms will begin shortly after the last dose wears off. Then they escalate dramatically, leaving the person unable to function. The danger with all opiate addictions is once the individual has begun to detox the drug from their system, the withdrawal symptoms get so bad that most people will give up and relapse.

Fentanyl withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Nausea Vomiting, diarrhea
  • Runny nose, fever, chills, cough
  • Body aches and muscle spasms
  • Agitation and emotional instability
  • Heart palpitations and high blood pressure
  • Uncontrollable arm and leg movements (known as kicking)
  • Severe Insomnia
  • Intense cravings for Fentanyl or other drugs containing Fentanyl

Since Fentanyl withdrawal symptoms over time get much worse and sometimes weeks before they improve, the likelihood of a person not being able to tolerate the symptoms is significant.  The rate of accidental overdose that occurs from the drug Fentanyl is alarming. The Centers for Disease Control collected data on the number of overdoses occurring during the height of the opioid epidemic in 2016. They associate the increase in overdose death to Fentanyl laced drugs and the direct ingestion of Fentanyl. Illegally manufactured Fentanyl referred to as IMF, is cause for more than 50,000 deaths in 2016.

Drug overdoses killed 63,632 Americans in 2016. CDC’s analysis confirms that recent increases in drug overdose deaths are driven by continued sharp increases in deaths involving synthetic opioids other than methadone, such as illicitly manufactured Fentanyl. CDC)
