Fentanyl rehab often makes the news these days because of the alarming number of people who become addicted to this drug. Whether a person begins abusing a pharmaceutical version or illegally manufactured fentanyl, addiction can happen quickly and destroy a person’s life. Enrolling can make the difference between turning a person’s life around or descending further into the depths of addiction and risking death.
What Is Fentanyl?
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid drug that has been making the news a lot in the past several years. This is because of the high potential for addiction to this drug which causes a person to need fentanyl rehab to overcome it. Fentanyl was developed in 1959 and its use as an intravenous anesthetic began in the 1960s. Fentanyl comes in two forms. The first is in prescription medications used to treat pain. Doctors prescribe it for people who experience pain that cannot be helped by using other drugs, after surgery, or for chronic or long-term illnesses.
FDA-approved prescriptions for fentanyl come in several forms. These include tablets, nasal sprays, sublingual sprays, transdermal patches, lozenges, and injectable formulations. Common prescription names include Actiq, Duragesic, and Sublimaze.
The other type of fentanyl people consume is illegally manufactured and sold. This type of fentanyl is produced in the form of tablets or a powder.
Street names for fentanyl include:
- China Girl
- China Town
- Dance Fever
- Great Bear
- King Ivory
- Murder 8
