Understanding Fentanyl Abuse

Understanding Fentanyl Abuse Recovery

When taken to alleviate pain and discomfort, fentanyl can do wonders for those grappling with severe pain. In fact, this is an opioid painkiller that’s typically given after a medical procedure or surgery since it is so adept at offering people the relief needed to function in a healthy manner. Additionally, because this pain reliever is so effective, it’s also one that frequently comes with a warning that it should never be misused and it often requires doctors to closely monitor their patients when they’re taking this medication. If fentanyl is taken in a way that’s outside of medical guidelines, an intense and challenging addiction can develop and make professional addiction treatment a necessity for a person in the future.

Since a fentanyl addiction can be complex to treat, it’s important for you to access effective services if you’re struggling with this sort of chemical dependency concern. Among the options for care that presently exist, medication-assisted treatment is one of the best choices that you can make for yourself and your future. Within this sort of care, you’ll be able to access certain medications that are designed to alleviate fentanyl withdrawal, ameliorate cravings for this drug, and give you the clear mindset needed to advance in your recovery process. Additionally, many medication-assisted treatment programs offer patients therapeutic interventions that can guide them towards healing in mind and spirit at the same time as their bodies heal, which is why you should definitely consider a program that features these services as well.

Salem Comprehensive Treatment Center has been helping men and women like you win the war against fentanyl addiction since we first opened our doors. Our U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved medications and invaluable therapies have enabled countless adults to live the recovered lives they hoped for, as we believe that we can help you realize a similar future. Therefore, as you consider the various treatment options available to you, be sure to consider our services. Here we can help you make the changes needed to leave the abuse of fentanyl in the past.

Types of Treatment Offered

Types of Treatment Offered for Fentanyl Abuse at Salem Comprehensive Treatment Center

At Salem Comprehensive Treatment Center, you’re viewed as more that someone who is battling a fentanyl addiction. Here, you’re someone with specific treatment needs and someone who has hope for a recovered future. And since you’re a unique person, your experience at our center is intended to be unique and individualized as well.

Once you’ve completed our streamlined admissions process, our treatment team will have a clearer picture of what you’re going to need to defeat your fentanyl addiction. With this clearer picture, we can recommend the following methods of care as part of your customized treatment plan:

Methadone: With decades of research supporting its safety and effectiveness, methadone is now a staple of many medication-assisted treatment programs. Here at Salem Comprehensive Treatment Center, you’ll be required to come to our center each day to get your dose of methadone, though you’ll be able to go about your day without being distracted by overpowering cravings for fentanyl and uncomfortable physical symptoms of withdrawal.

Suboxone: Like methadone, Suboxone diminishes withdrawal and fentanyl cravings. However, because this medication also includes naloxone as one of its main ingredients, you’ll be unable to relapse while taking it since naloxone induces withdrawal if opioids like fentanyl are abused during treatment. Considering the unique capabilities of this medication, many of our patients prefer to take this prescription.

Subutex (Buprenorphine): Subutex is a prescription medication that is comprised of mainly buprenorphine. When this medication is part of your treatment plan, you’ll be able to go about your day without impairment, evade withdrawal, and ignore cravings for continued fentanyl abuse. Lastly, this prescription is one that you can start at our center, though many patients elect to stop Subutex and finish their treatment taking Suboxone.

At Salem Comprehensive Treatment Center, you’ll only be prescribed one of the above medications at a time. If you’d like to change your medication regimen, you’re welcome to discuss this decision with your treatment team at any point during your care. Lastly, all medication dosages are determined by our medical staff to ensure your safety and to preserve the effectiveness of the medication you’re prescribed.

Individual therapy: One-on-one attention is important when working to defeat an addiction to fentanyl. For this reason, our medication-assisted treatment program includes individual therapy sessions in order for you to meet with a trained counselor, discuss topics that are personal to you, and so that you can determine recovery goals for both the present and future. Furthermore, when you participate in individual therapy sessions, you have the full attention of a mental health professional who wants nothing more than for you to have success in your recovery pursuits.

Group therapy: At salem Comprehensive Treatment Center, we want to give you as much support as possible as you work towards becoming well again. In keeping with this goal, we proudly offer group therapy sessions that cover a broad range of addiction and recovery-related topics, that include your peers during each meeting, and that give you the encouragement you need to make further progress towards your recovery goals.

If at any point you require more or less frequent individual and/or group therapy sessions, you can speak to your treatment team about revising your treatment plan. At Salem Comprehensive Treatment Center, we want you to succeed and can adjust your plan of care as your needs change over time. This is done so that you can experience the most favorable treatment outcomes possible.

Why Consider Treatment

Why Consider Salem Valley Comprehensive Treatment Center for Fentanyl Abuse

When effective treatment is received to defeat a fentanyl addiction, it’s very possible for a person to forge a life that’s happy, healthy, and full of potential. However, if you remain a regular abuser of fentanyl, your health and emotional wellbeing remain in harm’s way. For example, the overuse of this painkiller can lead to a life-threatening overdose that you may not be able to recover from. Additionally, without the help of trained professionals, you could experience multiple relapses if you ever attempt to stop the abuse of fentanyl on your own. Job loss, chronic unemployment, financial ruin, arrest, incarceration, divorce, and loss of child custody are all also potential outcomes when fentanyl remains the focus of your everyday life, which is why it’s so important to access treatment at this time in your life.

At Salem Comprehensive Treatment Center, we are pleased to offer the resources, support, and skills you need to defeat a fentanyl addiction once and for all. Via our time-tested combination of effective medications and therapeutic supports, it’s at our center that you’ll be able to make great strides in your recovery journey. Our dedicated and experienced treatment team places your health and wellness above all else, and they will do all that they can to make sure that you’re successful as you work towards winning the war against fentanyl abuse.

So don’t wait another day. Call our compassionate admissions staff, have your questions answered, and schedule an assessment to begin on the path towards your recovered future.
