Fentanyl Overdoses

Addiction in the Family | Drug Overdose | Teen Substance Abuse

Fentanyl overdoses are very common, more common per capita for those who take this drug than other drugs because fentanyl is simply so much stronger as drugs go, and is more potent and more likely to cause a death.  Fentanyl overdose symptoms are very much like overdose symptoms, only more pronounced.  For example, signs that one could be nearing a Fentanyl overdose death are signs like:

  • Significantly slowed breathing
  • Very low blood pressure
  • Very low heart rate
  • Abnormally pale face
  • Confusion
  • Intensive dizziness
  • Problems with speech
  • Thinking and cognitive problems
  • Nausea to the point of incapacitation
  • Vomiting and excessive digestive problems
  • Purple lips, fingernails, and toenails
  • Constricted, pin point pupils
  • Seizures ranging from mild to serious
  • Going into a coma and not being able to come out
  • Sudden death

The sad truth is that, because Fentanyl is about one-hundred times more potent than morphine is, problems like this are actually very common and very plausible.  When people struggle with an addiction to Fentanyl, the key for them needs to be to get into and through a drug and alcohol addiction treatment center and recovery program.  Only these centers offer the tools and the recovery methods necessary to truly help even the most harshly addicted of Fentanyl addicts to absolutely find their freedom and their sobriety from this habit.  Without a doubt, a Fentanyl addiction is very uncomfortable and very unpleasant to say the least, and now more than ever before this is something that needs to be addressed.

Just as is the case with any other kind of addiction struggle, inpatient addiction treatment centers have the tools for helping people to beat addictions to Fentanyl.  Though it takes effort and persistence, this too can be triumphed over.  For parents who struggle with an adult or young adult child who is addicted, the best way out of the habit is with a Fentanyl addiction treatment center.
