Fentanyl abuse is dangerous and hard to stop without help. Fentanyl rehab treatment often includes a medical detox, inpatient treatment and outpatient care.
Fentanyl is a dangerous opioid drug that contributes to tens of thousands of overdose deaths annually. Over the past few years, this powerful substance has become a growing problem in many parts of the country, including Ohio. In 2019 alone, fentanyl was involved in 76% of the state’s overdose deaths as well as 82% of its heroin-related overdose deaths.
Fortunately, addiction treatment and recovery are possible — even for drugs like fentanyl. However, not all addiction rehab facilities are the same, so it’s important to find one that can treat fentanyl addiction effectively. At The Recovery Village Columbus, we help you accomplish lifelong recovery by treating the root of your addiction — not just its symptoms.
Many different factors can lead someone toward addiction, such as untreated mental health disorders, childhood trauma, difficult home environments, and even biology. As a result, it’s not enough to simply help someone stop using substances like fentanyl. These underlying factors must also be addressed to build a foundation for long-term recovery. This is why we offer evidence-based therapy, dual diagnosis treatment, family therapy, nutrition counseling, life skills training, case management and much more.
Fentanyl addiction is considered severe due to the drug’s potency. Because of its severity, fentanyl addiction treatment typically begins with a medically supervised detox program, which helps ensure a safer, more comfortable withdrawal process. After detox, you will move directly into the inpatient treatment program.
There are a few different reasons why inpatient treatment works so well for fentanyl addiction. Addiction is a complex disease with physical and psychological aspects that are difficult to address alone. Further, those with fentanyl addiction tend to struggle with other drug addictions as well as mental health disorders. During inpatient care, co-occurring disorders, polydrug use and other concerns can be treated simultaneously.
Following inpatient care, you will typically transition to an outpatient program that helps you return to day-to-day life while still receiving treatment at the facility. Your treatment schedule will usually be lighter than it was in inpatient care, but it helps support you as you regain independence during early recovery.
After outpatient treatment is complete, you’ll begin the long-term aftercare stage. Throughout aftercare, you’ll have access to alumni events, peer support meetings, follow-up appointments, routine check-ins, relapse prevention services and other valuable recovery tools.
A rehab facility should provide you with all the tools needed to recover from your fentanyl addiction. The components needed for effective treatment and recovery include:
Addiction is a chronic disease, so it’s very difficult for a person to stop using a drug they’ve become addicted to. Treating fentanyl addiction requires long-term or repeated care to help ensure treatment success and reduce the risk of relapse.
