When someone is addicted to Ionsys, which is a transdermal system to deliver fentanyl, they will likely require professional addiction treatment. This is true of all opioids, which is the drug class fentanyl falls into. Opioids are highly addictive, and when someone uses them, they bind to opioid receptors in the central nervous system. Opioids like Ionsys can cause a euphoric response because of a release of an artificially high amount of the neurotransmitter dopamine. When someone is addicted to Ionsys or any opioid, it changes how their brain functions. Addiction also affects behavior, lifestyle and physical health. It’s a complex disease, which is why professional treatment is often the best option for people struggling with addiction. Treatment options for Ionsys addiction can include medical detox, inpatient rehab, participation in an outpatient program or a combination of different treatment approaches.
Ionsys (Fentanyl Transdermal System) Addiction Treatment And Rehab
Before someone can begin the actual treatment phase for addiction, they may require a medical detox. While opioid withdrawal doesn’t tend to be life-threatening, it can be highly uncomfortable and challenging to go through. An Ionsys medical detox provides more safety, support and comfort during the detox process. The entire objective of a medical detox is to help manage the physical and psychological side effects of withdrawal. An Ionsys medical detox is only the first stage of addiction treatment, however. It’s not in and of itself a treatment. Without further treatment, a medical detox will do little, if anything, to change drug use habits and patterns. For many people, the best option is to choose an Ionsys medical detox that’s part of an addiction treatment facility. This way, they can continue in the same facility when they complete detox without having to transfer or relocate somewhere else for treatment.
Addiction to Ionsys and other substances can be treated, but it requires specialized treatment. The goal of any Ionsys rehabilitation program is to help people stop using drugs and remain drug-free as well as to be productive in their lives, their families and at their jobs. While there are different addiction treatment formats, programs should view addiction as something complex but treatable. An Ionsys rehabilitation program needs to consider how addiction affects the brain, the body and the life of the person. Also important is individualized treatment. Most Ionsys rehabilitation programs will include behavioral therapies, and in some cases, medications as well. Some Ionsys rehab programs also include continuing follow-up and aftercare planning to help someone have long-term success in recovery.
Inpatient Ionsys rehab takes place in a residential facility. An inpatient, residential program provides different therapies and medical treatments when necessary. Residential, inpatient treatment is intensive and highly focused. Participants in an inpatient Ionsys rehab have the benefit of around-the-clock support, supervision and structure. This can be effective for many people, especially when they have severe addiction problems. An inpatient Ionsys rehab provides the opportunity for participants to receive not only comprehensive treatment but also to leave their home environment. This is beneficial for people with chaotic or stressful home environments, or for people who want to avoid their triggers while focusing on recovery. Inpatient Ionsys rehab can last for weeks, months or longer. There are long-term residential communities available as well, which are often called therapeutic communities. These long-term programs can last for six to 12 months in most cases.
Outpatient Ionsys rehab doesn’t include the structured, residential component of inpatient rehab. Outpatient rehab can range from participation in 12-step or drug education programs to intensive therapy sessions where a person participates several times a week for a few hours at a time. Someone may participate in outpatient Ionsys rehab on its own, or it might be something they step down to following completion of an inpatient program. Outpatient Ionsys rehab allows people to continue their life as normal, and they can keep going to school or work while they receive treatment.
When choosing a rehab center, there are a few key factors to keep in mind. One of the most important is the severity and extent of the addiction problem someone suffers from. For someone with a severe, ongoing Ionsys or opioid addiction problem, an outpatient program on its own might not be sufficient for treatment, for example. If someone has previously tried other options and they haven’t worked, an inpatient, intensive program may be better suited to their needs. Also relevant are whether more complex mental and physical care is needed. For example, if someone has a co-occurring mental health disorder that needs to be treated, an inpatient rehab may be a more suitable option.
