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.
Drug addiction can significantly change an individual's personality in various ways. The changes are often a result of how the substance interacts with the brain and can affect one's behaviors, emotions, and interactions with others. Here are some common ways in which drug addiction may alter personality:
Increased Aggression or Irritability: Substances can affect the brain's balance of neurotransmitters, leading to changes in mood and behavior. This can result in increased aggression, irritability, or mood swings, which might not align with the person's typical personality traits.
Decreased Motivation: Many addictive substances can lead to a decreased interest or motivation in activities that were once enjoyed. This can result in a noticeable change in personality, as the person may appear apathetic or disinterested in life outside their substance use.
Increased Impulsivity and Risk-taking: Drug addiction often leads to increased impulsivity and risk-taking behaviors. This is due to changes in the brain's reward system and decision-making processes, leading individuals to take more risks to obtain the substance, often disregarding the potential consequences.
Paranoia and Anxiety: Some substances can induce feelings of paranoia or increase levels of anxiety. Individuals who were previously calm and trusting may become suspicious, anxious, or overly worried.
Depression: Many individuals struggling with substance use disorders also experience symptoms of depression. This can lead to a noticeable change in personality, including increased sadness, lethargy, and withdrawal from social activities.
Manipulative Behavior: In order to continue using and obtaining drugs, individuals may resort to manipulative behaviors, such as lying, stealing, or deceit. This can result in a significant change in personality, as individuals may prioritize their addiction over their relationships and personal values.
Social Isolation: As drug addiction progresses, individuals may isolate themselves from family and friends, either to hide their substance use or because their primary relationships are increasingly with others who are using drugs.
Neglect of Personal Care: Addiction can lead to neglect of personal care and hygiene, which may manifest in physical changes as well as shifts in personality traits related to self-discipline and self-respect.
SMART Recovery (Self-Management and Recovery Training) is a global community of mutual-support groups that provide a structured, scientifically grounded program to help people manage their recovery from any type of addictive behavior, including substance abuse and behavioral addictions.
SMART Recovery's approach is different from other recovery programs like Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, which are based on the 12-step model. Instead of focusing on the concept of "powerlessness" over addiction, SMART Recovery emphasizes self-empowerment and self-reliance. It promotes the ability of individuals to change their own thoughts and behaviors to overcome addiction.
The SMART Recovery program is based on principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing. It is designed around a 4-point program:
SMART Recovery meetings, both in-person and online, are facilitated by trained volunteers and are free to attend, though donations are appreciated. The program also offers a variety of tools and techniques for self-empowerment and self-directed change, available in various formats such as handbooks, worksheets, and online resources.
