West Palm Beach Fentanyl Detox
The opioid addiction crisis has not just continued to get worse, the types of opioids being abused are increasing on the streets and Fentanyl is one of these drugs. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid prescribed for severe and chronic pain, it is much like morphine, however, 100 times more potent. The people who tolerate Fentanyl are in most cases physically dependent on either legally prescribed opiates that no longer reduce their pain or street drugs such as Heroin. In either case, Fentanyl is very addictive and lethal. If you’re addicted to opioids, our fentanyl detox in West Palm Beach, Florida, is here to help.
Fentanyl Addiction Treatment in Florida
The news is flooded with more and more stories about accidental overdose on heroin and other opiates. This is mainly because Fentanyl is being illegally manufactured for the sole purpose of lacing heroin with it on the street. This means that people who are addicted to heroin are also addicted to Fentanyl. Fentanyl addiction requires that a person continue to ingest the drug at very high doses every 4 to 6 hours or endure severe and debilitating withdrawal symptoms.
The painful withdrawal symptoms from Fentanyl are overwhelmingly physical, but not exclusively. The physical withdrawal symptoms from this drug include vomiting, diarrhea, fever, chills, tremors, sweating, dizziness, shortness of breath, and heart palpitations. The mental and emotional withdrawal symptoms are just as severe. These include hallucinations, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, agitation, and confusion.
