Fentanyl Detox in New York
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that can be up to 100 times stronger than morphine. It’s used legally as an analgesic and for anesthesia, but it has no approved medical use in the United States. This drug is often mixed with heroin or cocaine and sold on the streets.
The CDC estimates that more than half of people who use opioids long term will develop some form of substance abuse disorder, which includes addiction. In fact, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), four out of five new heroin users started out misusing prescription painkillers such as OxyContin or Vicodin before switching to heroin because it’s cheaper and easier to obtain from friends or dealers.
