Fentanyl is an extremely potent and dangerous opioid. It has become one of the most destructive substances in the Canadian opioid crisis.
Fentanyl addiction is a very destructive disorder that can lead to fatal consequences even when consumed in extremely low quantities.
A user can overdose on a tiny amount of fentanyl. It is estimated to be around 100 times more potent than heroin.
Substances sold in the illegal market as other drugs such as heroin or cocaine now often contain fentanyl, making people far more likely to overdose.
Once a person has developed a dependence on fentanyl, they must seek professional support to stop using.
Symptoms and Effects of Fentanyl Addiction
Fentanyl affects receptors in the brain, suppressing feelings of pain and causing a high in the user through surges of neurotransmitters.
Over time, the drug changes the brain’s structure, making it more difficult to stop using.
Short-term side effects from fentanyl use include:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Loss of appetite
Fentanyl Withdrawal Symptoms
Withdrawal from fentanyl is an intensely painful and potentially dangerous process.
In some cases, the body has become so dependent on the drug that withdrawal can be fatal.
The withdrawal process often involves aches, chills, nausea, vomiting, difficulty sleeping and various other symptoms.
Metamorphosis Centre of Change provides medical detox for clients experiencing fentanyl withdrawal.
