Benzodiazepine Addiction Treatment

If you’re suffering from an addiction to benzos, detoxifying under medical supervision is the safest option. Benzos are drugs that influence the brain’s delicate chemical balance, and when you attempt to detox these substances, withdrawal symptoms can potentially be intense. 

The goal during detox is to minimize the severity of these symptoms and make the process as comfortable as possible. This can only be achieved when you detox under an experienced clinical team. 

Benzodiazepines, also called “benzos,” are medications generally prescribed for the treatment of anxiety disorders, panic disorder, and insomnia. You may have heard of some brand name benzos, including Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, and Ativan.

Understanding Addiction

What Exactly are Benzos?

Benzodiazepines are a class of drugs that act as CNS (central nervous system) depressants. This means that they suppress the function of many vital organs, affecting breathing, heart rate, and neural function. They are also extremely addictive and physical dependence may develop even when taken as directed, which pushes you to take increasing amounts of the drug to experience the same effect.

This makes benzos extremely dangerous. When larger doses are taken, or when these drugs are combined with alcohol, their depressant effects can be intensified. This puts you at risk for potentially fatal side effects.

Benzos are typically prescribed due to their antidepressant qualities. Ironically it’s the beneficial effects of benzos (improved mood, serenity, relaxation) that make these drugs so addictive. Users of these drugs attempt to chase a recreational high, and with chronic use, they develop a crippling dependence.  An addiction to benzos can manifest itself in uncontrollable urges, benzo consumption despite clearly negative consequences, and impaired performance in the user’s daily life.

Our detox technicians will evaluate your physical health upon being admitted into the program, and they’ll closely monitor your vitals as you detox. You’ll be under the watchful eye of a proven clinical team— positioning you for a successful recovery. 

With sudden cessation of benzos, users will experience powerful physical and mental withdrawal symptoms. These include anxiety, panic, seizures, insomnia, nausea, hallucinations, mood swings, memory loss, suicidal thoughts, and blurred vision.

To manage these symptoms, it is vital to undergo medically-supervised detox in an accredited addiction treatment facility. This way, clinicians and medical staff at our Benzo rehab may prescribe medications to ease withdrawal symptoms and manage any health issues that may arise over the course of Benzo detoxification.

The typical benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms that a benzo detox program can manage are:

Did you know most insurance will help pay for rehab?

Do I Really Need a Benzo Detox Program?

Chronic benzo abuse will lead to biological dependence. Eventually, you’ll feel the unshakeable urge to take that drug to feel normal, and if you don’t take it you’ll feel certain withdrawal symptoms. When you abuse benzos, you damage your health, relationships, and many other areas of your life. Detoxification is undoubtedly the first step to regaining your life. 

Detox must be conducted under medical supervision. One of the signs of benzodiazepine addiction is that the user’s body adapts to the drug, and the body will begin to crave the drug. When the individual attempts to curtail benzo use, the body responds by triggering a series of unpleasant symptoms, which is known as withdrawal. Depending on the nature of drug abuse, these symptoms can range from mild to severe.
