Rehabilitation for Fentanyl Addiction at 10 Acre Ranch
Fentanyl was introduced in 1960 and it is prescribed to treat extreme pain after surgery and sometimes for major injuries.
Like other opioid drugs, it quickly began to circulate in the black market as a street drug valued for the euphoric feeling of well-being it produces by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and causing a flood of dopamine.
The Most Deadly Narcotic Painkiller of All?
Fentanyl has been in the news constantly for causing many overdoses because it is so potent. Consider the following facts:
- Fentanyl is 50-100 times as potent as pure morphine.
- There are synthetic versions of fentanyl that are literally 10,000 times as strong as pure morphine
- There are counterfeit versions of Fentanyl that are available on the street that are completely unregulated so have an unknown dose
- Fentanyl is being added to counterfeit street versions of other drugs like OxyContin, Percocet, and Vicodin, rendering these already dangerous unknown potency drugs even more deadly

Why Painkillers Have Seized Control of the Lives of So Many
What happens as a person grows dependent on an opioid drug such as fentanyl is that his natural ability to feel joy and pain is replaced by the pleasure that the drug produces. Before long, that feeling produced by the drug dwindles as his body builds up resistance, so that he has to take ever-increasing doses.
As the person who is struggling with addiction continues to seek the feeling of euphoria produced by the pills, their ability to feel the normal joy and pain in life decreases. Soon they don’t feel much besides despair and a desperate need to procure the drug they are addicted to in order to avoid withdrawal. It gets to the point where they can’t even imagine a life without the drug.
The Painkiller User Should Understand that Normal Joy Will Return
People in recovery commonly report that their new life is even better than the one they lived before they got derailed by addiction. There’s a feeling of gratitude and hope that pervades their daily life when they have survived a deadly illness; they have the joy of community with other recovering people, and sometimes they can even help another addicted person find recovery.
In a life of recovery, we learn to be truly grateful for each new day. It may seem impossible to believe that life is worth living while in the hopeless clutches of addiction. However, you can recover and find a life that is truly joyous and better than you ever imagined. The feelings of love and gratitude we experience in recovery are real, not counterfeit, and they aren’t dependent on taking any substance.
