Fentanyl Detox & Rehab Treatments in Pennsylvania

How much Fentanyl does it take to overdose?

Fentanyl is a narcotic opioid pain medication used to treat moderate to severe pain. 2 mg of fentanyl is known to be fatal. Thus, taking higher than 2 mg of fentanyl is a risk to your life. Overdosing can also lead to coma in less severe cases.

There are many different risks associated with opiate abuse, and this can include comas and respiratory depression. The risk of this happening increase drastically with fentanyl because of how potent the drug is. Any first-time users of the drug are at risk, and the same applies to any type of prescription or illegal opiate. Non-pharmaceutical fentanyl is dangerous all the time, and once a person's tolerance to opiates increases the risk of overdose is higher with fentanyl. Drug rehab centers in Pennsylvania and healthcare programs work with families and drug users with helping them understand the dangers of fentanyl. Fentanyl is prescribed for severe pain, and is given in hospitals when needed; long-term prescription opiate users are also given fentanyl because of his or her high tolerance to opiates. Opiate addiction affects many people within the state of Pennsylvania, and families and addicts should take the time to locate the best possible treatment.
