      Commonly Asked Questions about Addiction and Treatment

      Facts about fentanyl

      Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic opioid analgesic that has garnered significant attention in recent years due to its role in the opioid crisis. Here are some essential facts about fentanyl:

      Potency: Fentanyl is estimated to be 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine and 25 to 50 times more potent than heroin. Due to its high potency, it is prescribed in micrograms (mcg) rather than the milligrams (mg) typically used for other opioids.

      Medical use: Fentanyl is primarily used in medical settings to manage severe pain, such as chronic pain or breakthrough pain in cancer patients. It is also used as an anesthetic during surgical procedures. Fentanyl is available in various forms, including transdermal patches, lozenges, tablets, and injections.

      Illicit use: Fentanyl has become a significant concern in the illicit drug market due to its potency and relatively low production cost. Illegal fentanyl is often mixed with other drugs, such as heroin, cocaine, or counterfeit prescription pills, increasing the risk of overdose for unsuspecting users.

      Overdose risk: Fentanyl's potency makes it particularly dangerous, as even a small amount can cause an overdose. Signs of fentanyl overdose include slow or shallow breathing, unresponsiveness, pinpoint pupils, cold and clammy skin, and loss of consciousness. Fentanyl overdoses can be fatal if not promptly treated.

      Naloxone: Naloxone, also known as Narcan, is an opioid antagonist that can rapidly reverse the effects of a fentanyl overdose by displacing the drug from the opioid receptors in the brain. Due to fentanyl's potency, multiple doses of naloxone may be necessary to reverse an overdose effectively.

      Fentanyl analogs: There are numerous fentanyl analogs or derivatives, such as carfentanil, acetylfentanyl, and furanylfentanyl. These analogs can have varying potencies, often significantly stronger than fentanyl itself, which can further increase the risk of overdose and fatalities.

      Legal classification: Fentanyl is a Schedule II controlled substance in the United States, indicating that it has a high potential for abuse and dependence but also has accepted medical uses. Illicit fentanyl and its analogs are often classified as Schedule I substances, indicating that they have no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.

      Addiction and dependence: Fentanyl, like other opioids, carries a risk of addiction and physical dependence. Chronic use can lead to tolerance, requiring higher doses to achieve the same effect, and withdrawal symptoms if usage is reduced or stopped abruptly.

      What does drug withdrawal feel like?

      Drug withdrawal is a complex process that can feel different for everyone, depending largely on the type of substance involved, the duration and intensity of use, and individual factors like overall health and genetic predisposition. However, some general experiences and symptoms are often associated with the withdrawal process:

      Physical Symptoms: Many people experience physical discomfort or illness during withdrawal. Depending on the substance, this can range from flu-like symptoms (such as fever, chills, sweating, muscle aches, and fatigue) to more severe symptoms like seizures or hallucinations. Opioid withdrawal, for example, is often compared to a severe flu, while alcohol withdrawal can be life-threatening in severe cases.

      Psychological Symptoms: Withdrawal can also involve psychological symptoms like anxiety, depression, mood swings, irritability, difficulty concentrating, and cravings for the substance. These can be just as challenging, if not more so, than the physical symptoms.

      Sleep Disturbances: Insomnia is a common symptom of withdrawal from many substances, while vivid or disturbing dreams may occur when withdrawing from others.

      Discomfort and Distress: Generally, withdrawal can be a very uncomfortable and distressing process. The body has become used to the presence of the substance, and it can react strongly when the substance is no longer available.

      Cravings: One of the most challenging aspects of withdrawal for many people is the intense cravings for the substance. These cravings can be both physical and psychological, and they can be triggered by various factors, including stress, people, places, or things associated with substance use.

      What are the effects of drug addiction?

      1. Physical health: Chronic drug use can lead to various health complications, including damage to the liver, kidneys, heart, and lungs. It can also weaken the immune system, making individuals more susceptible to infections and diseases. Furthermore, the method of drug consumption, such as injecting, can increase the risk of blood-borne diseases like HIV and hepatitis.
      2. Mental health: Drug addiction can exacerbate or cause mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and psychosis. Prolonged drug use can also lead to cognitive impairments, affecting memory, attention, and decision-making abilities.
      3. Personal relationships: Addiction often strains relationships with family and friends, leading to social isolation and a breakdown of support networks. Trust issues, conflict, and emotional distress can arise as a result of drug-seeking behaviors and the impact of addiction on the individual's life.
      4. Financial consequences: Drug addiction can result in financial instability due to the costs associated with obtaining drugs and the potential loss of employment or income. This can lead to poverty, homelessness, or further dependence on social support systems.
      5. Legal issues: Drug use and addiction can lead to criminal activity, both directly (through possession or distribution of illegal substances) and indirectly (through actions taken to acquire drugs or money to buy drugs). This can result in legal consequences such as arrest, imprisonment, or fines.
      6. Overdose and death: The risk of overdose and death is significantly increased among individuals with drug addiction. Overdose can occur as a result of taking too much of a drug or mixing substances, which can lead to fatal consequences.
      7. Impact on society: Drug addiction has far-reaching effects on society, including increased healthcare costs, lost productivity, crime, and the burden on the criminal justice system. Additionally, drug addiction can contribute to social stigma and discrimination, further exacerbating the challenges faced by those struggling with addiction.
