OVERCOME YOUR ACUTE FENTANYL WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS NOW
If you’re struggling with Fentanyl addiction, you already know how bad the withdrawal period can be. In practically no time at all, this drug can render you addicted, hijack your brain chemistry and leave your body, brain and central nervous system desperately craving your next dose. Fentanyl is one of the most powerfully addictive opioids, the potency of which can up to 100 times that of pure morphine, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Withdrawal from fentanyl can be equally as powerful, but Recovery Unplugged is here to provide safe, effective, compassionate and comfortable relief of your symptoms.
YOUR FENTANYL WITHDRAWAL EXPERIENCE: PHYSICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL SYMPTOMS
Fentanyl withdrawal symptoms usually manifest rather quickly after abuse begins. The brain tricks the body into thinking it needs the drug to properly function and sets of physical and psychological alarms when use abruptly ceases. While each person’s fentanyl symptoms will differ depending on how long and how much they’ve been abusing the drug, some of the more common include:
- Joint and Muscle Pain
- Anxiety or Irritability
- Accelerated Heart Rate
- Fever, Chills and Flu-Like Symptoms
- Nausea, Vomiting and Diarrhea
- Tremors and Shaking
- Intense Cravings
- Excessive Sweating
While fentanyl withdrawal symptoms are often identical to those of other opioids, they can be far worse during the acute stages because of the potency and power of the drug. Users often become dependent on this drug in as little as a few cycles of use and experience withdrawal symptoms very early.

TREATMENT FOR FENTANYL WITHDRAWAL SYNDROME
Fentanyl withdrawal should be treated through medically supervised detoxification (detox). The health risks and potential symptoms are far too severe for users to try and overcome on their own. Professional detox allows patients a discreet, safe and compassionate environment, and medical personnel that can intervene in the event of a medical emergency. Recovery Unplugged offers doctors and nurses on staff. Withdrawal occurs in three stages (early, acute and protracted) symptoms can last for months after clinical treatment. Many patients can use medications to help manage cravings and curtail lingering symptoms. We offer detox at our facilities in Lake Worth, FL; Austin, TX and Nashville, TN.
FENTANYL WITHDRAWAL TIMELINE
Opioids represent the single-largest substance abuse threat in the United States; they may even represent the nation’s largest overall public health issue. Thousands more continue to die from these drugs with each passing year, including over 49,000 in 2017. Between prescription drugs like oxycodone and hydrocodone and illicit substances like heroin, these drugs are negatively impacting the lives of Americans of every cultural and economic background. Opioid withdrawal is one of the clearest indicators of addiction and leads to thousands of relapses every year. It is manifested through a variety of physical and psychological symptoms. Recovery Unplugged offers compassionate, effective and medically supervised opioid withdrawal treatment in.
Symptoms usually begin to manifest, and can range from physical to psychological, including fever, muscle pain, irritability, cravings and paranoia.
Symptoms intensify and generally come to their peak. They often include more intense psychological symptoms like paranoia, anxiety, depression and others.
Symptoms generally start to taper, but they can linger for a few weeks after they’re at their worst. You generally start to feel more normal as brain chemistry is rebalanced.
DON’T TACKLE FENTANYL WITHDRAWAL ON YOUR OWN
Many fentanyl users make the mistake of thinking they can quit fentanyl and other opioids “cold-turkey” and wind up succumbing to the painful and sickening withdrawal symptoms and relapse. This cycle often discourages them from seeking help altogether and they wind up falling deeper into addiction. Recovery Unplugged is ready to help you or your loved one overcome the perils of fentanyl withdrawal treatment and move on with your life.
There’s no reason why substance use withdrawal has to get in the way of your recovery. Whether you or someone you care about needs fentanyl withdrawal treatment or any other type of medical care related to addiction, Recovery Unplugged is going to help you regain your strength, health, lucidity and independence.
