Fentanyl Detox Program

The first step to overcoming fentanyl addiction is completing an effective detoxification program. Unfortunately, quitting cold turkey or unassisted detox from fentanyl can be extremely painful and challenging. The length and intensity of the withdrawal symptoms are more than what most people can handle independently. For that reason, an inpatient fentanyl detox protocol, such as the Waismann Method®, is usually the best and safest option for detoxification. In a hospital, doctors can provide a patient with adequate support to manage the withdrawal symptoms while safely monitoring vitals.

Fentanyl detox can be a difficult and painful process to undertake by yourself. However, at the Waismann Method® treatment center, you don’t need to endure unnecessary suffering. Quite the opposite, our center provides patients with several medically-assisted fentanyl detox treatment options.

We offer a confidential consultation to determine the best treatment option for you. At that time, you have the opportunity to learn more about opioid dependence, rapid detox, and non-addictive medications that can help eliminate physical cravings. Our staff is available seven days a week to answer all your questions. So don’t hesitate to call us now for more information about our fentanyl detox program. We are here for you!

Fentanyl Abuse and Addiction

Fentanyl works by alleviating pain while attaching to the opioid receptors in the body. It also stimulates neurotransmitters in the brain, particularly dopamine, which gives the user a renewed sense of euphoria. Once the user experiences exhilaration (usually referred to as “a high”), they are likely to repeatedly seek the sensation.

Then, when drug use becomes daily, tolerance, dependence, and addiction can develop. Therefore, it’s essential to watch for signs and symptoms of developing physiological tolerance, which may become both a physical and emotional addiction requiring fentanyl detox in our center.

If you or a loved one is exhibiting signs of fentanyl dependence, reach out to our rapid fentanyl detox center. We will help you determine if our treatment options are right for you and get you on the road to recovery.

Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms

Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid often used to treat pain and is currently widely used recreationally. However, the drug is highly addictive and can cause severe withdrawal symptoms when people stop taking it. The most common withdrawal symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle aches, and fatigue. However, some people may also experience more severe symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and hallucinations. These symptoms can be extremely uncomfortable and can make it difficult for people to stop taking fentanyl. Our fast fentanyl detox protocols are designed to alleviate the discomfort of withdrawal and help you have a successful start to your recovery. 

Withdrawal Timeline

Withdrawal symptoms typically start within a few hours of the last dose and peak after two or three days. However, some symptoms may persist for weeks or even months. Treatment for fentanyl withdrawal often includes medication to help reduce the severity of symptoms. In some cases, people may also need to be hospitalized during withdrawal.

Instead of suffering several failed attempts to quit using, participate in a fentanyl patch detox program or a treatment plan for other illicit forms of the drug. When you seek treatment at our center, detoxing from fentanyl is a much more pleasant experience than trying to do it on your own. You’ll have the care and attention you need to make it through the initial stages of recovery. 

What is a Medical Fentanyl Detox?

Inpatient medical fentanyl detox is the first step to successful addiction treatment. It is a medically supervised process in which patients are closely monitored as they get through the withdrawal. The goal of detox is to allow patients to safely and comfortably reach a state of sobriety, which lays the foundation for further treatment.

Effective fentanyl detox protocols also provide around-the-clock medical care and withdrawal management to achieve successful detoxification. In addition, in a hospital, medical professionals can maintain close monitoring and provide patients with high doses of medications to help ease symptoms.

In fact, the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) recommends against abruptly discontinuing opioid use without medical supervision due to the risk of relapse, overdose, and even death. Instead, they advise that it is always best that those suffering from Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) seek medical assistance, which may include medical detox, withdrawal management, and pharmacological and behavioral treatment strategies.

Some Benefits of Medical Detox

  • Reduce pain and discomfort from an opioid withdrawal
  • Reduce the risk of medical complications during detoxification
  • Significantly reduce physical cravings
  • Much higher rate of detox success than other methods

When detoxing from fentanyl, choosing an inpatient program is an important decision, and it’s essential to consider all your options before making a decision. Be sure to ask about the program’s philosophy and approach to detox and its staff qualifications, accommodations, and amenities. You should also ensure that the facility is accredited and licensed by a reputable organization.

If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, don’t hesitate to reach out for help. Inpatient medical detox can be an important first step toward a successful recovery.
