How Long Island Center for Recovery (LICR) Treats Fentanyl Addiction

Fentanyl has quickly become one of the most deadly drugs ever to exist. Much of its news focuses on individuals trying avoid wrongful consuming fentanyl but this isn’t the case for everyone. Opiate users, either addicted to prescription drugs, heroin, or some other substances continuously build up a tolerance to these types of drugs, making them less effective over time. Client’s dependence grows, increasing their level of risk, and some have even gone as far to seek out illicit fentanyl purposefully to reach the same exceeding level of highs they are accustomed to. This is a tremendous risk that becomes increasingly life threatening with each dose used. Anyone using fentanyl purposefully should of course stop their usage immediately and seek treatment, but additionally should have an overdose plan in case the worst should occur.

Fentanyl addiction treatment at Long Island Center for Recovery (LICR) would begin with immediate medically supervised detox. Fentanyl addiction is more deadly than any other opiate, making the withdrawal period without the proper tapering off and support a life threatening endeavor. Stopping cold-turkey can lead to life-threatening impacts so clients seeking treatment for Fentanyl addiction will need to go through the proper tapering off detox for at least 5-7days.

When clients are ready, we encourage all begin to join groups and meetings at our inpatient treatment facility. The Fentanyl withdrawal period can feel daunting but it helps to have the support of others who are going through the same or similar experiences to share in positive outputs and focus towards a successful sobriety.

Group sessions are a wonderful support but clients suffering from Fentanyl and other opiate addictions find that the root of their addiction stems from a variety of factors. To explore these root causes, individual sessions focus on techniques and skills to manage client’s daily lives without the routine assistance of harmful substances.

Additional Recommended Therapies For Fentanyl Addiction Treatment

Beyond the group and individual sessions, Fentanyl addiction clients are also recommended to take advantage of the following holistic approaches:

Utilizing these forms of holistic therapy and treatment will help clients begin to control their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as they progress in their Fentanyl addiction treatment. The full allotment of programs is what increases the success of our clients, relying only on psychoeducation through individual and group therapy sessions can only go so far. These holistic therapies bring peace back to the body and brain, allowing clients to absorb and process the information they’re gaining, specifically following their withdrawal and detoxification period.
