General Information

As psychoactive drugs, Benzodiazepines can have a hypnotic, sedative, muscle relaxant effect on the abuser. Because such drugs are commonly used to treat insomnia and anxiety, and manage withdrawal symptoms from other recreational drugs, they can be safe and effective when used under a doctor’s supervision. However, when Benzodiazepines is used in an unsupervised manner long term, the effects on your health are serious.

Effects of Benzodiazepine Abuse

The physical side effects of using Benzodiazepines unsupervised for long periods of time include dizziness, depression, and impaired coordination. As with any recreational drug, using Benzodiazepines chronically can cause an addict to develop a tolerance and dependence for the drug. In order to maintain the desired effect, an addict will most likely increase the dosage. Problems, such as combining Benzodiazepines with other drugs such as alcohol, opiates, or antidepressants, can cause death.

Benzodiazepine Detoxification Withdrawal doesn’t have to be painful

The Benzodiazepine rehab program at Chapters recognizes that the fear of withdrawal from Benzodiazepine keeps them using the drug. Though withdrawal can be uncomfortable, it doesn’t have to be.

Our Benzodiazepine addiction recovery process utilizes the safest, most traditional form of withdrawal, which is a drug-specific detox. Under medical supervision, clients are prescribed medication to reduce the risk of seizure and lessen withdrawal symptoms. Such medications are given typically until the body is physically stabilized.

Chapters Capistrano understands that overcoming Benzodiazepine addiction is challenging.  We are here to facilitate your recovery.
