Addiction to Klonopin

Klonopin Addiction and Treatment

The Klonopin addiction recovery program at Chapters Capistrano in Southern California is a premier facility because of its personalized approach. Our addiction experts develop programs specific to each client’s needs in order to guarantee a successful, effective recovery.

General Information

Because of its sedative, muscle-relaxant effects, Klonopin, a benzodiazepine and a psychoactive drug,  is used to manage withdrawal symptoms during detoxification from other recreational drugs, and to treat anxiety and insomnia. However, when abused and used for prolonged periods of time, health risks can be serious, even fatal.

Efforts of Klonopin Abuse

Tolerance and dependence can be developed when Klonopin is abused. Often, consumption of the drug must be increased to acquire the desired effect. Physical side effects may include dizziness, depression, and impaired coordination.If Klonopin is combined with other drugs, such as alcohol, antidepressants, or opiates, the result can be lethal.

Klonopin Detoxification Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

At Chapters, our Klonopin rehab program staff know many addicts put off rehabilitation due to fear of withdrawal. Therefore, we use only a drug-specific detox, the safest, most traditional form of detox. While monitored by our medical team, clients are administered prescription medication to decrease the risk of seizure and detox symptoms. The mild medication, in tapering amounts, is given until the body is physically stabilized.

Chapters Capistrano is committed to helping our clients on their roads to recovery! Our drug and alcohol rehab center is here to provide you with more information about our personalized treatment plans. Please call our 24-hour helpline at 949-371-4198 today!
