A fentanyl addiction treatment program can quite literally save someone’s life. Fentanyl is one of the most powerful drugs in existence and is now one of the leading causes of death due to overdose each year. Finding a treatment program that can help you break free from an addiction to fentanyl is critical to a successful recovery and avoiding a relapse. A fentanyl addiction treatment program also takes a close look at the connection between addiction and mental health.
Apex Recovery San Diego offers options for outpatient treatment focused on building tools, skills, and strategies to sustain long-term recovery. Having a strong network of support through trusted professionals, and family and friends, to get you through the process is also important.

Dangers of Fentanyl
The biggest danger of using fentanyl is how strong it is. Most people who ingest it do not realize how powerful it is. It’s why it is so easy to become addicted to it. The irony is that even though it is highly addictive, fentanyl is commonly prescribed by doctors. Its prescription use is meant for managing pain following a bad injury or after serious surgery.
That being said, it is also available illegally. These illegal forms of the drug also get mixed in with other popular street drugs, in which case most users do not even know they are ingesting it. In fact, fentanyl misuse has greatly contributed to the opioid epidemic in our country over the last few years.
What is Fentanyl Addiction Treatment?
Rehab from a powerful drug like fentanyl starts with ridding your body of the substance. This can create severe withdrawal symptoms that are nearly impossible to manage effectively on your own. Having the assistance of medical professionals in a safe and structured program will ensure that you get clean in the safest way possible. In many cases, this will involve medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to treat the withdrawal symptoms themselves. Medications can make it easier to focus on other parts of treatment so that you can get to the goal of recovery in the healthiest manner possible.
In addition to withdrawal management, a variety of therapies are available as part of a customized treatment plan unique to each person. This could include individual, group, and family talk therapies, as well as behavioral and experiential therapies. Behavioral therapies include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). Experiential therapies include music therapy and motivational interviewing. If you have a co-occurring mental health condition, our dual diagnosis treatment program can help to treat both disorders simultaneously, alongside one another.
Contact Apex Recovery San Diego About Fentanyl Addiction Treatment
At Apex Recovery San Diego, the fentanyl addiction treatment program is designed to give the best care available by our caring and knowledgeable practitioners, in a welcoming and supportive therapeutic environment. A holistic approach to treatment and recovery looks at the unique needs of each person to craft a plan that will work for them specifically.
Our fentanyl addiction treatment program offers a variety of outpatient options. All programs offer the opportunity to receive a diagnosis after a careful assessment by a certified counselor. You’ll then work through therapies to better understand the connection between, mind, body, and spirit in order to treat the entire person.
Each of the following programs offers a fully customized treatment experience:
Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
Designed as the most intense level of flexible outpatient care.
Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
Less intense than an IOP, but offers the additional support needed outside the home.
Provides assistance and care for those who have the least amount of flexibility to receive care outside the home.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Involves the use of FDA-approved medications to manage the severe withdrawal symptoms associated with fentanyl addiction.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
Being able to treat both a substance use and mental health disorder at the same time has proven to be more effective than treating them separately.
