Fentanyl

Fentanyl Addiction Treatment in Brooklyn

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid drug used to treat chronic pain and acute pain after surgery. Because it’s 50 to 100 times stronger than morphine, Fentanyl can be incredibly addictive, especially when abused, or not taken as directed. It has turbo-charged the opioid crisis with large quantities of this synthetic opioid being smuggled into the U.S. from Mexico and China. Overdose deaths linked to fentanyl and other synthetic opioids are increasing in the U.S. In 2022, nearly 74,000 Americans died from a fentanyl overdose, which is more than double the volume of deaths from three years prior in 2019.
