Fentanyl is a synthetic opiate used by prescription as an analgesic to treat severe pain, chronic pain, and post-operative pain. It can be administered by injection or slow-release patch, but it also comes in lozenge form, and when used strictly to get high, it’s often chewed or smoked.
Because it’s similar to but more powerful than morphine, fentanyl is often used for patients who are tolerant to other opiates. Not only does this drug provide pain relief, but it’s also associated with highly pleasurable effects like feelings of euphoria, making fentanyl addiction treatment necessary for many patients who inadvertently develop a dependence or who become addicted through recreational use.
