Fentanyl Rehab And Addiction Treatment in Los Angeles, CA

What Is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid used for treating severe pain, typically prescribed to advanced cancer patients. It is 50-100 times more potent than morphine. Like other addictive prescription drugs that are legitimately prescribed, it can easily become abused. It is sometimes used to cut heroin and cocaine, without the user’s knowledge, making those substances more volatile. fentanyl is extremely dangerous, and in the current opioid overdose epidemic fentanyl is responsible for over half of those deaths.


According to the CDC, synthetic opioids (like fentanyl) are the primary driver of overdose deaths in the United States. In the past year alone:

  • Overdose deaths involving opioids rose 38%
  • Overdose deaths involving fentanyl rose 56% percent and appear to be the primary driver of the increase in total drug overdose deaths.

Short and Long Term Effects of Fentanyl Addiction

One of the primary reasons to pursue fentanyl rehab treatment is the long-term and short-term effects of using the drug. Fentanyl’s short-term side effects can include:

  • Euphoria
  • Slurred speech
  • Changes in appetite
  • Changes in blood pressure

The long-term effects include:

  • Addiction
  • Changes in neurochemistry
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Breathing problems


Some of the symptoms of fentanyl use can be:

  • rapid heartbeat
  • pounding in the ears
  • chest tightness
  • mood changes
  • poor balance
  • hallucinations
  • abnormal thoughts


It’s never wise to try to detox from fentanyl yourself; it’s always smarter and safer to get help at a fentanyl addiction treatment center.

Fentanyl withdrawal is one of the reasons why many people pursue fentanyl rehab treatment. Because of the risk of a fentanyl withdrawal death due to extreme dehydration, seizure, or stroke, getting professional help at a fentanyl rehab is essential.

When you get fentanyl addiction treatment at a fentanyl treatment center like Profound, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) detox will be an essential aspect of the process. Prescribed medications such as Suboxone, which contains buprenorphine and is used in rehab for fentanyl detox can help your body handle withdrawal symptoms.

Withdrawal from opioids can be particularly unpleasant, and we recommend our medically-assisted detox program. Some of the symptoms you can expect during withdrawal are:

  • sweating
  • chills
  • muscle spasms
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • stomach pain/nausea
  • insomnia
  • exhaustion
  • hypertension


Due to fentanyl’s high potency and risk of overdose death, it is imperative to get immediate help for you, or someone you know who is using fentanyl. Due to the dangers of withdrawal, we recommend Profound’s medically assisted detox. Following detox, our inpatient rehab can be the best option for opioid users. 

Profound offers programs for every step of the recovery process, and our clinicians will work with you to map out a unique treatment plan best suited to your needs.
