Parent's Guide to Fentanyl

At the start of 2023, data illustrated the devastating effects of fentanyl. The United States saw overdose deaths eclipse 100,000 annually for the first time. This was largely due to the increased availability of fentanyl. To help with this growing problem, DRS created the Parent’s Guide to Fentanyl to educate individuals on the dangers of fentanyl. Our goal was to do our part to prevent overdoses by teaching parents and guardians what fentanyl is, how children are exposed to it, and tips for talking to their loved ones about this threat. Hundreds of communities across the country have utilized this guide. Mayors, police chiefs, teachers, and other community leaders have shared our Parent’s Guide to Fentanyl to educate the people they serve, and we are proud that our work is making a difference!

A parent and a guardian being clear and consistent about family rules, boundaries, and guidelines.

Testimonials

Addicted.org has helped thousands of people in the last 15 years. Here is what some people had to say about us.

"There are no words that can explain how grateful I am to have gotten in touch with the representative who guided my family through the intervention we held for our mom. I felt the person who was guiding us really listened to us when we discussed topics whereas others who tried to help us wouldn't really give us the chance to be heard. The patience we had in our experience was amazing. Knowing you have someone on the line in case things don't go as planned was a very comforting feeling in helping our mom during such a sensitive time. For that I am incredibly grateful I have found this service, even during COVID where we did not have a representative at our house, having them on the phone felt like great support and what we needed at the time."

Sophia A.

Daughter

"I’m in the process of starting my journey, but I wanted to leave a compliment to the website and the person who assisted me on the phone. The website is very organized and the gentleman who assisted me was very knowledgeable. He seemed to know exactly what I was looking for. He was empathetic to my needs and found a center that sounded incredibly affordable, even at my income. He was also knowledgeable in describing the different vacates of facilities. Most importantly he didn’t haze me with technical terms. I truly appreciated his honest demeanor."

Cindy

"All I wanted was to save my son’s life! By the time I called this site, I was at my complete wit's end with my sons’ addiction. The gentleman who answered my call had a genuine demeanor to his voice. You could tell that this man was passionate about helping individuals get into treatment and it wasn’t just a job for him. After explaining to him what I was going through with my son, not only did he give me words of advice and encouragement, but he gave me hope that there is help out and my son will pull through just fine. Long story short, this man did indeed ensure that my son got into one of the best treatment centers in the country. I will forever remain grateful for the staff at Addicted.org who helped save my son's life."

Janice R.

Mother

"I have been using Addicted.Org as a resource to help my clients at Newman Interventions for nearly 15 years and I can always count on this website as a trusted source for addiction treatment options. Families and addicts and addicts themselves need to know they are in good hands and I feel confident when directing clients to this website as I know they only recommend the best treatment options."

Bobby Newman

Interventionist

"My cousin went from an honor roll student with scholarships to 3 major colleges to a struggling functioning addict living on the streets. I started googling nationwide options when I came across Addicted.org. I talked to a woman who has been getting individuals into treatment for years and she understood everything I was going through with my cousin Eric. She made some calls and got Eric into a long-term treatment center outside of state lines. Eric told me that the center he was in helped him more in the first month he was there than all other rehabs he had been to over the last 6 years. I knew then I made the right decision contacting Addicted.org."

Ryan G.

Newcastle, WA

"My daughter was at a point where she was alone with no support because everyone but myself had given up on her because of all the damage done. I decided to call the 800-number listed on the site and I am very glad I did so. The young man I spoke to was not in a hurry to just get my information and get me off the phone, but he showed a sincere concern for my daughter and her situation. Within a few hours, my daughter had a flight booked and a spot available at a treatment center that was top of the line! I am very glad that I reached out to Addicted.org because the daughter I knew years ago is finally back and I can breathe easy knowing that she is safe and making major steps into having a wonderful life for herself and her children."

Jeffrey G.

Father

"My mom has been an alcoholic for my whole life. It hit a point where our family was falling apart and we didn’t know what to do. We would address the problem but never knew how to take the next step and actually do something about it. After all those years of worrying and trying to figure out what to do, it wasn’t until we reached out to a specialist to guide us and successfully get my mom the help she desperately needed. I urge everyone who feels lost to know it is ok to ask for help, since realizing that was the turning point for my family to take action and save my mom’s life. I am forever grateful for the help and guidance my family got from them."

Talmage A.

Ask a professional

  • How long does drug rehab take to complete?

    Treatment time varies depending on what level of care is received. Below is the general timeframe you can expect for each treatment type.

    • Outpatient – Ranges from 4-12 weeks, with a couple of hours each day spent receiving care. The length of time in outpatient depends on the needs of the client.
    • Detox – 1-2 weeks depending on the type and amount of substances the client is using.
    • Short-term inpatient – 28 days is the standard length of treatment for most short-term programs
    • Long-term Residential– The length of these programs usually ranges from 8-12 weeks. Still, it can go upwards to a year or even longer in some cases.
  • Can I force my loved one to go to treatment?

    Generally speaking, no. Anyone of legal age must be admitted willingly into a drug and alcohol rehab center. However, some states have laws to receive a court order for treatment, and if your loved one is a minor, they could be admitted without consent.

    While it may seem that your loved one does not want help, there are ways to convince them to get treatment. Medical professionals and certified interventionists are trained in helping people realize they need to go to rehab. Enlisting their help can make a difference in someone gaining sobriety.

  • What do I do after being placed on a waiting list to attend rehab?

    Once on a waiting list to attend rehab, one should do their best to stay motivated and not lose sight of why they sought help in the first place. It is not unusual to feel discouraged if you cannot get into treatment immediately but do not let this negatively affect your chance at recovery. Here on some tips while you wait to get admitted:

    • Understand the risk associated with coming off your drug of choice. Stopping alcohol, benzos, or opiates requires medical supervision, so consult a medical professional before completely stopping your substance use.
    • Check-in regularly with the rehab center and ensure you follow their guidelines to stay on the waiting list. Some centers require you to check in daily to remain on the list.
    • Understand that the wait time you are told is generally a worst-case scenario. Beds can open faster than expected, and you can sometimes get in sooner than you were initially told.
    • Consider getting on multiple waiting lists to better your chances of getting into treatment faster.
    • Utilize the time to your advantage. Examples of this are planning with your employer, handling your living situation, or settling any financial obligations. Taking the time to manage responsibilities before entering treatment ensures you will stay focused on your recovery and have less attention on things outside of treatment.
  • Does my insurance cover rehab?

    Most insurance will cover behavioral and mental health treatment for substance use disorder, but the amount covered can vary drastically from policy to policy. There are two ways to check your coverage quickly:

    1. Call the help number on the back of your insurance card. It will connect you to someone who can go over your coverage options for drug and alcohol rehab.
    2. Give your insurance information to the center you are interested in attending. They can check how much coverage you will receive.

    It is important to understand that just because you have coverage does not guarantee your claim will be approved. The person attending rehab must be deemed to have a medical necessity for treatment. If this is not established, then it’s possible insurance will not pay. During the admissions process, it is vital to ask the intake counselor how the facility handles a patient who does not meet medical necessity.

  • I already went to treatment before and relapsed. Is it worth going back?

    Yes, it is worth going back. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs often provide refresher programs or outpatient services to graduates. However, consider the following before making the decision:

    • Contact the treatment center aftercare services or graduate helpline. Discuss the circumstances of the relapse.
    • Consider attending a 12-step meeting or support group.
    • Outpatient programs provide excellent aftercare support.
    • If relapses occur frequently, it would be time to return to a residential program.

    The reality of recovery is relapse happens. Yet, how an individual handles the relapse determines the outcome. Keep pushing forward, reach out to other sober people, be grateful, and focus on the positive.
