Benzo Treatment Program
Benzodiazepines, also known as benzos, are a type of psychoactive prescription drugs that are used to treat high levels of anxiety, panic attacks, sleeping disorders, and seizure prevention, among other challenges.
These prescribed medications are tranquilizers intended for short term use, however they have the potential to be highly addictive if misused. A benzo addiction can be very dangerous because constant use of these drugs can cause persistent brain chemical changes. While they are prescribed and technically legal, benzodiazepines such as Xanax, Ativan, and Valium can be a threat to one’s overall health when misused and taken more than prescribed. Prescription drug abuse is a major concern in this country and more and more people are becoming physically dependent on these drugs. While this addiction is a full-blown disease, there is treatment available that can help individuals fully overcome substance abuse and enter recovery.
What is Benzo Addiction Treatment?
Individuals who are addicted to these prescription drugs may experience health problems when they try to quit on their own. Benzo addiction treatment often begins with a medical detox that will get rid of the toxins in one’s body. During the detox process, individuals will likely experience uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms that can be regulated with medical care and supervision. Once stabilized, a patient will then go through an inpatient or partial hospitalization program that will further aid in their recovery efforts. Patients can expect to participate in unique therapy methods that will help them get to the root of the addiction. During treatment, these individuals will learn how to manage future drug cravings that will likely be present in recovery.
