At our teen drug rehab centre, teens addicted to fentanyl can get the treatment that they need to overcome their dependencies.
Fentanyl is an extremely dangerous drug, so dealing with an addiction to it is particularly urgent. The drug does not last long and is used in hospital settings primarily for breakthrough pain, i.e. pain that patients feel in spite of taking other opiates.
There are several signs of fentanyl abuse, which can also manifest themselves in those taking it for legitimate medicinal purposes with a prescription and/or supervision of a medical professional. Some of the signs and symptoms of fentanyl usage include bad dreams, swollen extremities, hives, severe constipation, and suppression of breathing.
Because of the potency of fentanyl, heavy users will typically be weaned off of it rather than stopping usage immediately. This is because of the severity of the withdrawal symptoms.
Those addicted to fentanyl are also prone to a decline in personal integrity. Thefts, prescription fraud, doctor shopping, and other practices are often necessary to maintain an addiction. Addicts often steal from places like nursing homes, hospitals, and pharmacies.
Fortunately, the professionals at our teen drug rehab centre have seen this all before. We understand addiction and work with those who are at low points in their lives. We understand that addiction to fentanyl, and other substances for that matter, is an illness and that addicts need compassion and care.
Our rehab centre for teens has no more than ten patients at a time, and each one has a private room throughout the treatment process. We have a staff of ten people, which enables us to give each patient the individual time and attention that they need through every step of the rehabilitation process. We tailor our program, which is known as Transitions, to each person who comes through our doors, because we understand that no two cases of addiction are alike.
