Fentanyl Treatment

There is an alarming rate of people struggling with drug abuse and addiction in the US and around the world. According to statistics, the number of individuals struggling with opioid use disorder spans in the millions. Fentanyl ranks at the top of the list in the United States, resulting in horrible and even deadly consequences. Fortunately, there is hope for those with fentanyl addiction that wish to recover. If you’re interested in overcoming your fight with fentanyl, the information below will provide insight into your treatment options and how our fentanyl treatment can assist.

Our Fentanyl Addiction Treatment

Are you or a loved one struggling with fentanyl ? If so, you’ll be pleased to know that you do not have to struggle alone. Our licensed clinicians at Better Choice are skilled to provide you with the diagnosis and tailored treatment that are required to overcome this disease.

What Is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a strong synthetic pharmaceutical drug that is developed from the opium poppy plant, which is typically prescribed for pain management. When administered, it works in the brain, blocking the pain receptors, to change how you feel and react to pain. More powerful than morphine, fentanyl’s potency increases the risk of addiction and possible overdose.

Fentanyl is used medically when a patient’s pain is severe for example, after a surgical procedure or when diagnosed with cancer. However, when fentanyl is used recreationally with hard substances like heroin or cocaine, it becomes an issue. When fentanyl is abused by lacing it with other recreational drugs, it can lead to an overdose death.

Treatment Options for Fentanyl Addiction

Due to its potency, people that abuse fentanyl are more likely to become dependent and addicted to it. Although treating the addiction won’t be easy, here are a few treatment options for fentanyl addiction. 

  • Hospital-Based Treatment: Sometimes, hospitalization is required to get the necessary assistance to overcome a fentanyl addiction; particularly, when there are serious issues resulting from the addiction. Beyond medical attention, patients will also receive mental health assistance to overcome any psychological problems that may have developed. 
  • Medication: Going cold turkey from fentanyl may not be easy. In fact, a sudden halt may cause the patient to suffer some harsh symptoms. This means that detox medication is almost always required. Our team of medical professionals will administer the medication, while also monitoring and guiding you through the withdrawal process and symptoms.
  • Therapy: This is another fentanyl addiction treatment and other US cities offer. Better Choice provides individual and group therapy for all patients. Here, you work out everything that causes and triggers your addiction, as well as find ways to change your behavior towards your fentanyl addiction. Moreover, you get to learn new and unique ways to cope with every trigger you may have. Therapy also offers a support group to heal and recover together.
  • Inpatient or Outpatient Care: Inpatient care allows you to live with other people actively working to overcome their fentanyl addiction. This is usually done in our comfortable facilities which provide support and amenities to achieve a healthy withdrawal. On the other hand, outpatient care allows you to carry on your usual daily activities as you receive fentanyl treatment. This way, you attend treatment on appointed weekdays, while receiving detox or therapy.

How Fentanyl ‍Addiction Treatment Works

Typically, the process starts with your willingness to receive the treatment. Treating addiction to fentanyl proceeds with a medical assessment. This helps us understand the level of care you require and how best to treat you. A detox follows, and this is one of the crucial parts. You will receive medications that will help your body adjust to the withdrawal from fentanyl. Following this, you will be placed in either inpatient or outpatient care with therapy to help you adjust to a healthy lifestyle and maintain your sobriety.

What to Expect in Fentanyl Treatment Programs

When you opt for a fentanyl treatment with Better Choice, you can expect an outcome of the following:

  • Better and healthy living. With well-trained clinicians, you should be able to regain a healthy body and an even healthier mind.
  • Therapy and support. From either group therapy or one-on-one sessions, with a seasoned professional, you can gradually recover from the addiction. Also, having a support group is a perk that comes from receiving fentanyl addiction treatment.
  • Clear-aligned goals and discipline. The overall goal is usually to be free from substance use disorder. However, as individuals, you may also have personalized triggers. These programs are designed to help you with sufficient supervision as well as equip you with discipline to avoid these triggers and stay healthy.

The Cost of Fentanyl Treatment

Since pricing shouldn’t come between you and the help you need, there are different cost ranges for fentanyl treatment.

  • The treatment option a patient requires;
  • The treatment duration;
  • The location of the facility;
  • Amenities patients require at the facility during treatment;

The good news is that Better Choice accepts multiple types of insurance. Our patients can also opt to pay out-of-pocket or inquire about treatment opportunities for low or no-income individuals who may not otherwise be able to afford treatment.

We Accept All The Major Insurances
