What is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is one of the most potent substances currently on the illicit substances market. Fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine and can kill users after just one dose. Fentanyl was originally a prescription drug used for severe pain patients. However, over time, the desirable effects made it a quick competitor for drug abuse and opioid addiction. Users obtain either falsified prescription fentanyl or illicitly produced fentanyl. Fentanyl derivative use can also come from other drugs unknowingly laced with fentanyl.

Due to the euphoric effects and intense highs of synthetic opioids, addiction is extremely common. However, due to the power of fentanyl, overdose and death are extremely high.

Symptoms of Fentanyl Withdrawal

The detox process for fentanyl is similar to that of other opioids. The main difference lies in the intensity and speed of the withdrawal effects. Detoxing from fentanyl can be extremely difficult, both mentally and physically.

The first step in the detox process is tapering off of the drug. This entails gradually reducing the amount taken until completely stopped. This is the safest way to detox and helps alleviate some of the withdrawal effects.

Once the taper has been completed, the person must go through acute fentanyl withdrawal symptoms. These can include physical withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, cramps, and vomiting, as well as mental symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Depending on the person, withdrawal can last up to a few days.

After the acute symptoms have passed, post-acute withdrawal symptoms may persist. These are usually psychological and can last for weeks or months after quitting fentanyl.

Fentanyl addiction can cause severe withdrawal symptoms, including:

  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Insomnia or disrupted sleep
  • Frequent sweating and chills
  • Anxiety, depression, and irritability
  • Cravings for fentanyl
  • Loss of appetite

Medical detox is the best option for those struggling with fentanyl addiction. Medical professionals can provide medications and other treatments, such as vitamins and nutritional supplements, that may help alleviate some symptoms while in detox.

Gloria Rehab’s supervised detox program allows you to experience fentanyl withdrawal symptoms in a safe environment. Our team offers quality substance abuse addiction treatment and will walk you through each stage of the process. This can include the additional support of non-addictive medications to ease the side effects of fentanyl abuse.

Fentanyl Causes of Withdrawal, Risk Factors, and Timeline

Fentanyl withdrawal is caused by the body’s inability to cope with the sudden discontinuation of a drug it has become dependent on. The body reacts in various ways, producing physical and mental symptoms as it adapts to functioning without fentanyl.

The severity of these symptoms depends on the amount of time someone was using fentanyl, how long they have been clean, and their overall physical health. Treatment for fentanyl withdrawal is designed to address the physical and psychological effects of quitting the drug.

Fentanyl risk factors

Fentanyl withdrawal is caused by the body’s physical dependence on the drug. People who use fentanyl for a long period or in high doses are more likely to experience severe and long-lasting withdrawal symptoms. Other factors that can affect how someone withdraws from fentanyl include:

  • The length of time they have been using fentanyl
  • The amount of fentanyl used
  • How often a person uses the drug
  • The method of use (injecting, snorting, smoking, etc.)
  • Genetics and pre-existing mental health conditions
  • Co-occurring substance use disorders

It is important to understand your risk factors when withdrawing from fentanyl or other substances. Professional help is the best way to ensure a safe, successful recovery without increased risk. With medical supervision, you can identify your individual triggers and develop strategies for managing withdrawal symptoms.

Fentanyl withdrawal timeline

Fentanyl withdrawal can be a difficult process, but it is not impossible. The timeline of withdrawing from fentanyl varies from person to person but typically lasts for one or two weeks. The physical symptoms usually manifest within the first 24 hours and peak at around 48-72 hours. However, psychological symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and cravings can last much longer.

It is important to seek professional help when going through fentanyl withdrawal, as it can be both dangerous and uncomfortable. Medical detox centers like ours provide the safest way to withdraw from fentanyl and have medical professionals on-site for support.

The addiction specialists at our treatment center are here to guide you through this difficult process. We provide a safe, supportive environment where we can help you manage your withdrawal symptoms and work towards long-term recovery.

Is it time to detox from fentanyl?

Fentanyl abuse and fentanyl withdrawal look different for everyone. If you’re still on the fence about attending an addiction treatment center, here are some signs it may be time. If you answer yes to any of the following statements, it may be time to seek quality care from a treatment center:

  • Hiding your use, lying about the amount you use, or isolating from others to use.
  • Losing relationships, family, friendships, your home, your career, and other important things due to your use.
  • Experiencing additional health concerns or mental health concerns that you’ve never had before due to your use. 
  • Experiencing severe effects like overdose from your usage. 
  • Experiencing intense cravings as soon as your last dose has worn off also known as chemical dependency.
  • Combining fentanyl use with other opioids to increase the effects.

Achieving sobriety from fentanyl can be a difficult but rewarding process. With personalized treatment plans and medical supervision, you can regain control of your life and find lasting recovery.
