Fentanyl Detox & Rehab Treatments in California

Across the state of California are hundreds of different drug and alcohol rehab centers, detox programs, and behavioral healthcare services. Fentanyl abuse is a major problem within the state of California and throughout the West Coast of the United States. Fentanyl can't be detected using standard drug tests. However, more advanced tests are therefore used for fentanyl detection. Urine tests are usually conducted for detection of fentanyl in the system. These urine tests yield a positive result for up to 24 hours after the last dose. Most people can take Fentanyl as prescribed, and will not have a problem with it, but because it is still prescribed for severe pain management, there are strong possibilities for addiction. Fentanyl is a sought out drug for illicit purposes, because of its powerful euphoric effects and addictive nature. What makes Fentanyl so dangerous is the drug being mixed with other drugs such as heroin or cocaine. When Fentanyl is mixed with other drugs it is to increase the effects of the drugs. A large percentage of the overdoses that happen is when people are using other drugs that are laced with Fentanyl.
