Understanding Fentanyl Abuse

Understanding Fentanyl Abuse Recovery

Commonly compared to morphine due to its ability to treat severe and chronic pain, Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid narcotic that is prescribed to patients who are experiencing pain after a medical procedure. Fentanyl works by increasing the levels of dopamine that are released by binding to the opiate receptors in the brain. This interaction results in individuals experiencing feelings of euphoria and intense relaxation. These attractive side effects are often what cause individuals to consume this medication for recreational purposes, which can eventually develop into an addiction. An addiction to Fentanyl may cause individuals to feel as if all hope is lost. While overcoming an addiction to this medication may feel impossible, treatment options are available.

Types of Treatment Offered

Types of Treatment Offered for Fentanyl Abuse at our East Wisconsin Comprehensive Treatment Centers

East Wisconsin Comprehensive Treatment Centers are a network of treatment providers that specialize in the treatment of Fentanyl addiction. Our treatment is specifically designed for men and women aged 18 and older who are struggling with an addiction to these powerful medication. Our compassionate staff of nurses, counselors, and physicians is readily available to assist patients in creating customized plans of treatment that encompass their unique needs and treatment goals. Patients are able to incorporate the following prescription medications and therapeutic interventions into their treatment plan:

Methadone: With extensive clinical research behind it, methadone is proven to be an extremely safe and effective treatment opioid for individuals who are struggling with an addiction to Fentanyl. Use of this medication provides patients with relief from the physical symptoms of withdrawal while keeping cravings for additional Fentanyl use at bay. Patients who are prescribed methadone will not experience cognitive impairments, which allows individuals the ability to play an active role in daily activities such as driving, work, and school without delay.

Suboxone: First approved in 2002 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of opioid addiction, Suboxone has since provided countless patients with relief from the physical symptoms of withdrawal while eliminating cravings for additional Fentanyl use. Using a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone, Suboxone relieves the physical discomforts associated with Fentanyl withdrawal while protecting patients against overdose and abuse.

Subutex (Buprenorphine): With buprenorphine as its primary active ingredient, Subutex relieves the physical discomforts of withdrawal while diminishing cravings for continued Fentanyl use. Many patients who begin their treatment on Subutex will later transition onto Suboxone for treatment maintenance.

Vivitrol: Unlike the other prescriptions available through East Wisconsin Comprehensive Treatment Centers, Vivitrol is administered once monthly via injection. Vivitrol relieves the physical discomforts of withdrawal while eliminating cravings for additional Fentanyl use.

Individual therapy: East Wisconsin Comprehensive Treatment Centers believe that in order for patients to achieve lasting recovery, treatment for both the physical and psychological components of their addiction must be received. The medication that we prescribe allows patients the ability to eliminate the physical discomforts of withdrawal while obtaining the mental clarity that is required in order to focus on the remainder of their addiction. The use of individual therapy provides patients with the opportunity to work one-on-one with a highly qualified counselor in order to address and treat the root causes of their addiction while working through any questions or issues that may arise during the course of treatment. These sessions provide patients with a safe and supportive atmosphere in which to openly discuss their emotions and experiences while progressing towards recovery.

Group therapy: In addition to individual therapy, patients of East Wisconsin Comprehensive Treatment Centers are invited to incorporate the use of group therapy into their treatment plan. These counselor-led sessions bring patients together with other individuals who are also receiving treatment for addiction. When patients are given the opportunity to work alongside their peers, individuals are able to receive the support and encouragement that is required in order to progress in treatment. Group sessions provide a safe environment in which patients are able to openly discuss an array of topics with other individuals who firsthand understand the challenges associated with recovery.
