Fentanyl is an extremely fast-acting, synthetic opioid that many pharmaceutical companies sell as a pain medication. As with other opioids, fentanyl attaches itself to the parts of the brain that control emotion and pain, and therefore taking fentanyl recreationally can produce extreme feelings of euphoria, pain relief, and relaxation to a level where it can be addictive after one single use of the drug. However, the drug also produces powerful side effects such as dizziness, nausea, slowed breathing, vomiting, decreased blood pressure, and feelings of confusion.
Over the years, you may have noticed increased reports of fentanyl-laced drugs leading to death. As one of the strongest opioids to exist, even the smallest dosage of the drug can be deadly. Fentanyl is simply way more potent than any other opioid you may be taking, which is why it is known as one of the deadliest and most dangerous drugs.
When you develop an addiction to a drug as powerful as fentanyl, your brain becomes dependent on the drug to feel sensations of pleasure. A person will stop experiencing dopamine from everyday activities, and you will come to rely on fentanyl for feelings of happiness and joy.
Like with other opioids, there are both physical and behavioral signs and symptoms of someone who is abusing fentanyl. Some of the physical symptoms of fentanyl addiction include slurred speech, nausea and vomiting, dizziness, swollen hands or feet, constricted pupils, insomnia, sweating, muscle aches, hyperactivity and more. Additionally, people who abuse fentanyl may experience feelings of extreme tiredness due to the intense euphoria they feel while taking the drug – think of it as a crash. Therefore, after you take the drug and experience the high, you may experience extreme drowsiness thereafter.
Some of the behavioral signs and symptoms of fentanyl abuse may include failure to take on daily activities, withdrawing from events and activities you once enjoyed, foregoing essential health and hygiene, poor performance at school or work, and simply being unable to stop yourself from seeking fentanyl that it takes over your entire life.

At our fentanyl rehab in Georgia, we offer our clients the ability to recover from an addiction in a way that helps in both the short and long-term. In the short-term, we want our clients to experience safe and contained withdrawal symptoms that we will assist in mitigating. Withdrawal from fentanyl can be challenging and dangerous to experience on your own, and our staff is here to guide you through it successfully and as painlessly as possible.
Fentanyl addiction treatment will start initially with helping you detox your body. For many, the initial detox may be the hardest part of the recovery process. Withdrawal symptoms may include fever, muscle aches, trouble sleeping, nausea, vomiting, irritability, and extreme cravings for fentanyl. While some people may experience the worst of the symptoms, others do not suffer in the same way. Every person’s body and reaction is different, therefore we believe that everyone’s treatment should be different.
We believe in helping our patients in the short term as well as the long term. Once our patients make it through symptoms of withdrawal, our fentanyl rehab in Georgia offers a number of different treatment options including therapies, elective activities, aftercare programs and more.
At The Berman Center, we have several options for fentanyl addiction treatment.
