What We Treat
Fentanyl Addiction

Are you looking for fentanyl addiction treatment for yourself or a loved one?

At The Plymouth House we understand how devastating fentanyl addiction can be. Fentanyl addiction affects thousands of men and women across the country, completely devastating the majority of the lives it touches. Fentanyl is a potent and extremely habit-forming synthetic opioid, one most commonly used for the treatment of severe, acute pain. This potent pain reliever is prescribed as a lozenge or in a patch form, though the majority of current fentanyl addiction cases are linked to illegally manufactured fentanyl. The vast majority of overdose deaths that are linked to this medication also involve an illicit substance like heroin or cocaine – not because of polydrug abuse, but because drug dealers frequently combine fentanyl and other drugs in order to increase their potency and street value. If a person uses an illicit drug like heroin that is laced with fentanyl, the risk of overdose related death increases dramatically.

But..there is hope! The Plymouth House has helped hundreds of men and women recover from fentanyl addiction and go on to lead healthy, happy and substance-free lives. The Plymouth House Program utilizes a powerful combination of intense 12-step work, therapy and holistic treatment options in order to consistently deliver the most effective and integrated care available.

More About Fentanyl Addiction

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that the rates of overdose related death linked to synthetic opioids like fentanyl increased 16 percent from 2018 to 2019. More than 36,000 innocent men and women lost their lives to fentanyl overdose in 2019 alone. This medication is classified as a Schedule II chemical substance by the US Food and Drug Administration, meaning that although it does serve a medical purpose it also has a very high potential for abuse. People who are prescribed fentanyl for the treatment of moderate or severe pain are generally tolerant to other narcotic painkillers — it is almost always utilized as a “last resort.”

Like other opioid narcotics, fentanyl works by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and blocking pain signals sent out by the central nervous system. Over time the brain adapts to the presence of fentanyl, and the person who has been misusing the drug has a difficult time deriving any naturally occurring sense of pleasure. Activities that were previously enjoyed are entirely neglected, motivation to carry out day-to-day tasks dwindles and the person experiences a range of related psychological issues and physical symptoms. Drug-seeking behaviors become impulsive and the person eventually loses control over his or her life.

If you or someone you love has been abusing fentanyl, you know just how devastating fentanyl addiction can be. The good news is that no matter how severe a fentanyl abuse disorder has become, recovery is always possible with the right tools and treatment options in place.

Fentanyl Addiction
Signs & Symptoms

Symptoms of fentanyl addiction include:

  • Continuing to use fentanyl despite a range of serious personal consequences, which might include interpersonal issues, issues at work or at school, financial problems or legal issues
  • Attempting to cut back on the amount of fentanyl being taken, but being unable to do so for any significant period of time
  • A lack of motivation to participate in activities that were previously enjoyed
  • Changes to sleeping patterns and eating patterns, which often lead to noticeable weight loss
  • Mood swings, typically marked by agitation and irritability
  • Experiencing intense psychological fentanyl cravings, which frequently lead to compulsive fentanyl use
  • Continuing to use fentanyl despite medical advice to stop use entirely or cut back on the amount being taken
  • Developing a physical tolerance, meaning that a higher dose of fentanyl is required in order for the desired effects to be produced
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when fentanyl use is stopped suddenly
  • If a person experiences a fentanyl overdose, it is a good indication that he or she is suffering from a severe substance abuse disorder and that professional help has become absolutely necessary.

Effective Treatment Options

When it comes to effectively treating fentanyl addiction, a combination of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) options, intensive behavioral therapy and 12-Step program involvement is the most beneficial. At The Plymouth House we offer a highly individualized program of recovery that focuses on integrated care and tackles the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual implications of active addiction. Not every treatment method we offer is equally as well-suited for each individual guest, which is why we conduct an in-depth assessment upon admission to our facility. In some cases, MAT is not necessary, but in others, medications like buprenorphine help alleviate the intense drug cravings that could render therapeutic treatment less effective.

Behavioral therapy helps our guests learn to replace negative and self-destructive thought and behavioral patterns with the healthy coping mechanisms that are going to help them avoid relapse for years to come. Our guests have access to individual therapy sessions that are facilitated by a licensed, on-staff therapist, group therapy sessions and group workshops, and family therapy sessions. At The Plymouth House we acknowledge the importance of family involvement and strive to heal everyone the substance abuse disorder has affected while restoring functionality to the family unit as a whole.
