Fentanyl Rehab in Arizona
Evidence-Based Fentanyl Addiction Treatment in Arizona
Fentanyl is one of the strongest opioid drugs on the market as well as one that is shorter-lasting than some of the other well-known drugs, which is a deadly combination for addicts. Fentanyl is often used after surgery or for pain that breaks through beyond the normal opioid that a chronic pain sufferer takes. It also is available for time-release, providing strong pain relief over time. These factors create a dangerous effect for drug use disorder sufferers, because the chances of overdosing are extremely high.
If you or someone you love is addicted to fentanyl, there is no time to wait. You need to seek rehabilitation before it is too late. Our team of opioid addiction specialists at Decision Point Center can be your guide in recovery.
Your life is worth so much more than living in the grip of a drug. Contact us today for more information about our Arizona fentanyl rehab center.

Symptoms of Fentanyl Addiction
As with other opioid addictions, fentanyl’s signs and symptoms look much like a sedative. They also may be accompanied by a lack of care for oneself, possibly illegal activity, or apathy towards life in general.
If you or a loved one is exhibiting any of the following symptoms, it is time to seek help:
- Dry mouth
- Slowed breathing
- Itching/scratching skin excessively
- Loss of appetite
- Insomnia or disrupted sleep patterns
- Vivid or bad dreams
- Water retention in extremities
Fentanyl is a drug that requires increased dosage rather quickly to achieve the same affect, and addiction typically sets in rapidly. It is imperative that you seek help as early and as diligently as possible to reduce risk of death or permanent damage from overdose.
Signs of Fentanyl Addiction
Since many patients don’t believe opioid pain relievers (OPRs) such as fentanyl are not as addictive as heroin or other illegal drugs, there has been a significant increase in accidental and intentional abuse in recent years. Fentanyl substantially affects the central nervous system, causing an excessive flood of dopamine that chemically alters the brain as time goes on.
When patients experience such a neurochemical change, they ultimately become dependent. After exhausting their prescription, they often attempt to obtain fentanyl through illegal methods or even become addicted to heroin.
Building a tolerance for fentanyl’s narcotic properties can result in patients needing more of the drug to experience the sensations they felt when they started using it. Our professional staff can identify problematic behavior such as tolerance development or suffering withdrawal symptoms.
How to Help Someone Addicted to Fentanyl
There are few things more painful than watching someone you love struggle with an addiction to fentanyl. You do not have to be a trained medical professional or an addiction expert to play a meaningful role in your loved one's recovery.
If your spouse, parent, child, friend, or other loved one is abusing fentanyl, consider the following:
- Educate yourself as much as possible about addiction so you can truly understand what they are going through. The better you understand how these drugs affect a person's body and mind, the better prepared you will be to provide support.
- Do not delay. Promptly tell your loved one you are concerned about their wellbeing and urge them to seek treatment. Do not make the mistake of thinking that they need to hit "rock bottom" before getting help. You could be saving their life.
- Be careful with your tone. Approach them from a place of compassion, not judgment. They will be more receptive to your offers for help if they do not feel they are being shamed for their struggles.
- Understand that they may not seek help at first. Be persistent.
- If they refuse to acknowledge an obvious problem, consider staging an intervention with professional help.
- If they do decide to seek treatment, stay involved in their recovery journey. Attend meetings with them, check in with them regularly, and continue to offer your support. This is the time where they will need you the most.
