Finding a Fentanyl Addiction Treatment Center: Understanding Addiction and Getting Help

Fentanyl is known as a strong and highly addictive Opioid drug. It is somewhere from 50-100 times more potent than Morphine. Pharmaceutically, it is approved for the treatment of severe pain (most commonly, advanced cancer pain). Fentanyl misuse or addiction starts differently for everyone, but it is always serious. So, what should you know about Fentanyl addiction and getting help?

Who Can Benefit From a Fentanyl Drug Rehab Center?

Someone who misuses fentanyl is likely to benefit from attending drug rehab for Fentanyl addiction. Understanding the signs and symptoms of Fentanyl addiction can help you identify a problem in yourself or someone you know and may be the first step to getting help. 


Often, changes in behavior are noted when someone uses fentanyl. While the signs can differ from person to person, here are some common signs of Fentanyl addiction to look out for. 

  • Continuing to use fentanyl despite problems at home, work, school, in relationships, or in other important parts of life cause by drug use 
  • Spending a great deal of time using, thinking about, obtaining, or recovering from the effects of fentanyl 
  • Needing higher amounts of fentanyl than before to achieve desired effects
  • Lack of interest in activities one previously enjoyed due to Fentanyl use
  • A sudden and unexplained need for money
  • Cravings or strong urges to use fentanyl
  • An uptick in secretive behavior
  • Legal consequences 

Changes in appearance and hygiene can also occur. Fentanyl can be consumed in different ways, so various forms of drug paraphernalia may be found in some instances. 


Symptoms of Fentanyl use can be physical or mental as well as behavioral. Common symptoms associated with Fentanyl use include but aren't limited to the following. 

  • Constricted pupils
  • Drowsiness or sedation
  • Mood swings
  • Feelings of euphoria
  • Depression
  • Slowed breathing
  • Slowed psychomotor activity
  • Changes in sleep patterns
  • Nausea, vomiting, or stomach pain
  • Memory problems
  • Impaired judgment 
  • Constipation 
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness 

Serious risks such as fainting, coma, seizures, organ damage, loss of child custody, and death can be a result of using fentanyl. If someone uses other drugs alongside fentanyl, the likelihood of severe adverse consequences can be even higher.

  • Personal history of substance use disorders 
  • Personal history of other mental health conditions (such as depression) 
  • Peer pressure or being around other people who use fentanyl 
  • Easy access to fentanyl
  • Personality traits 

Regardless of the underlying factors that contribute to a person’s addiction, attending a fentanyl addiction treatment center can help. Recovery is possible, and various forms of treatment can be of value to those working to heal.

Types of Drug Rehab for Fentanyl Addiction

Behavioral therapies are advantageous in helping people who have experienced Fentanyl addiction and other forms of substance abuse. Whether you enter a residential inpatient, partial hospitalization, or outpatient program, you will typically engage in multiple therapies, recreation, and other activities. Sometimes, medically assisted treatment (MAT) will be prescribed as part of your treatment if decided collectively by yourself and a member of your care team. If you attend Fentanyl addiction treatment at one of our facilities, we’ll work with you to create a customized treatment program, including a relapse prevention and aftercare plan. 

Residential inpatient

A residential inpatient treatment program can be ideal for overcoming substance abuse because it provides 24/7 supervision and support while temporarily removing you from your current daily life. When a client enters residential inpatient care at a Fentanyl addiction treatment center, they eat, sleep, and live at the treatment facility for the duration of care. Residential inpatient allows you to focus on your recovery in a supportive environment, attend multiple therapies (such as individual and group therapies), engage in reaction activities, and get intensive care from a complete range of treatment staff. The length of an inpatient stay can vary based on factors like insurance coverage, but the majority of clients stay in residential treatment for around one to three months. 


The main difference between residential inpatient and outpatient treatment is that clients live at home or otherwise outside of a treatment facility when in an outpatient program. Outpatient treatment is a flexible option that generally requires a time commitment of twenty hours a week or less, and we offer day and evening outpatient programs to make care viable for clients. Many people step down to outpatient care after residential inpatient to help them transition into life outside of a treatment center, though some people choose to start with an outpatient program of some kind. 

Partial hospitalization

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) for Fentanyl addiction and other concerns are similar to other outpatient programs in the sense that clients will not sleep at their treatment center. However, PHP usually requires an elevated time commitment when compared to standard outpatient or intensive outpatient care. The partial hospitalization programs at Centric Behavioral Health offer high levels of support, requiring clients to attend care five days per week for six to eight hours per day. 

Dual diagnosis

Dual diagnosis is a term used when a client has a substance use disorder and at least one additional mental health condition. Dual diagnosis treatment addresses a substance use disorder and a client's other mental health concerns to promote overall well-being. A dual diagnosis treatment plan can be applied at any level of care.


Getting off of fentanyl can be dangerous and uncomfortable due to withdrawals. programs provide clients with a safe place to come off of drugs and alcohol with medical staff present. It is common for clients to start with a detoxification program to reach medical stability and then transfer to residential inpatient or another level of care.
