Fentanyl Addiction Treatment & Rehab
Medication and psychotherapy are the treatment options used to address serious fentanyl problems. When combining these two options to help people with opioid use disorder, doctors refer to them under a single name: medication-assisted treatment (MAT)[i]. On the medication side, MAT involves the use of the anti-opioid naltrexone, the opioid buprenorphine or the opioid methadone. Naltrexone is used to help you maintain sobriety after your achieve abstinence. Buprenorphine and methadone — which don’t get you “high” or support addictive behavior when used appropriately — help you make it through withdrawal without veering back into uncontrolled fentanyl misuse.
On the psychotherapy side[ii], one common choice for fentanyl-related treatment is a technique known as community reinforcement approach (CRA) plus vouchers. This form of therapy provides you with a tangible reward when you follow your recovery plan and withholds the same reward when you don’t. A second option, contingency management (CM) follows roughly the same model. A third option, 12-step facilitation therapy, helps you recognize the benefits of participation in a self-help group for people with opioid-related problems.
