Ambien Addiction and Treatment

Chapters Capistrano is a drug and alcohol rehab center that leads the industry in overcoming Ambien addiction. We have created a highly customized treatment program for you or your loved one experiencing an addiction to Ambien. Because you are your own person with your own experiences, your addiction will differ greatly from another’s, which is why we work with you on an individual level until sobriety and healthiness have been achieved.

General Information

Ambien is medically prescribed to help people who suffer from insomnia, as well as some brain disorders. It is viewed as a “safe” drug; however, abusing Ambien is becoming more popular as users sometimes increase their dosage with doctor approval or consent. Without medical supervision, increased doses can create sedative, relaxant and even hypnotic states. These effects can cause dangerous health risks. Ambien is not in the benzodiazepine drug family, however, the hypnotic feeling that users can experience is very similar to those of benzodiazepines.

Effects of Ambien Abuse

With prolonged use of Ambien, unsupervised use of this drug is mostly related to the user’s physical and mental wellbeing. Side effects include nausea, vomiting, hallucinations, amnesia and other health issues. As with any prescription drug, chronic use can lead to dependency on the drug for every day functions of life. It is common for Ambien addicts to increase their own dosages to experience the same feelings after a tolerance build up occurs. Using Ambien with other recreational drugs like alcohol, opiates or anti-depressants can cause serious, and even fatal, consequences.

Ambien Detoxification Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

We know that if you are addicted to Ambien, you are probably feeling uneasy about the thought of going through withdrawals from Ambien, which can keep you using the drug. At Chapters, we understand that this can be uncomfortable; however, it doesn’t have to be.

Through our intensive Ambien rehab program, we administer a drug specific detox right here on site. We also prescribe a mild medication to help alleviate the symptoms of withdrawal, and you will be medically supervised while undergoing treatment for Ambien addiction. With these methods, we help reduce the risk of seizure while also making you comfortable until your body is stabilized.

Chapters Capistrano is here to help you every step of the way. We know what you have been through and want to talk to you about your options. Call us now at 1-949-371-4198. You can beat your Ambien addiction and have a healthier, happier life.
