Fentanyl Detox & Rehab Treatments in New York

How to recognize Fentanyl abuse

Fentanyl is one of the strongest opiate drugs on the market to exist. It is used to treat moderate to severe pain. Abuse of fentanyl results in:

  • Weight loss
  • Headaches
  • Dry mouth
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Heavy sweating
  • Itchiness
  • Severe constipation

Because fentanyl is cut and mixed with other drugs the risk of overdose for most street drug users is very high. The risk is especially great with heroin users, because there is a greater chance that fentanyl will be mixed in with most heroin purchased on the street. Drug addiction affects so many people living within the state of New York, and opiate addiction is a very common problem. Most opiate addictions begin with a prescription; the average person can take these prescriptions without any problems. However, for some people it only takes abusing the drug once to achieve that one time desired effect. There are hundreds of different drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and programs operating within the state of New York. This will include medical detox, which is the safest approach to help someone abusing opiates such as fentanyl.
