Fentanyl Abuse - Design for Recovery

Prescription fentanyl is an opioid medication to treat pain. Unfortunately, because it is so potent, there is a high rate of misuse and abuse, which means the possibility for overdose is also incredibly high. And like any other opioids such as morphine or heroin, people who use prescription medical-grade fentanyl on top of their prescribed pain reliever run into the risk of dependence – meaning if they stop using the drug altogether then withdrawal symptoms will occur including the possibility for depression and other mental health problems.

The resources below will help you better understand this drug and the addictive side effects. You are always welcome to reach out to us for additional information and help with the steps towards recovery for you or a loved one.
