Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello- Thank you for asking the question. I have over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families & am happy to reply.
I am happy to help you with this.
Having worked with Addicts for 35 years, I will be very direct and to the point.
Fentanyl is an extremely powerful synthetic opiate that requires inpatient treatment to safely detox and avoid associated withdrawal symptoms.
If you boyfriend checked out of a rehab program and now tells you he is not addicted - He is is massive denial and you should not join him in this denial pattern.
Detail on this drug is here: http://pain.emedtv.com/fentanyl/fentanyl.html
Additional information on this and rehab guidelines- see:
I am sorry that you having to deal with this issue, however, Addiction is a disease of denial and deceit. It will draw you in if you all it.
If you have additional questions, feel free to ask- I am happy to help.
Kindest regards, Bill
I appreciate your positive rating so that I receive credit for my time.
What is the best thing I can do to help him? I have left him as he won't admit to using. He is also a physician. I am scared he wont quit but feel like there is nothing left in my power.
