Ambien Addiction and Treatment
Chapters Capistrano leads the way in helping people with an Ambien addiction because we have created a custom tailored treatment program for each individual with this addiction. We know that every case of addiction is very different and requires a unique approach to ensure success in completing drug rehabilitation.
Ambien is prescribed under medical supervision for insomnia, most commonly, and in some instances, certain brain disorders. Ambien is known as one of the safest drugs for these problems; however, abuse is becoming more common as some people use it in higher doses beyond the prescribed amount. Common side effects that abusers are seeking to achieve are sedative states of mind, muscle relaxation, and hypnotic states – all of which can become addictive and cause serious health risks. Ambien is not a member of the benzodiazepine drug family; however, its effects are similar to those of the benzodiazepine family.
Effects of Ambien Abuse
Along with the hypnotic effects of overusing Ambien, there are also side effects like nausea, vomiting, amnesia, hallucinations, etc. Chronic use of Ambien can build up a tolerance that means users will need to take more and/or higher dosages to achieve the desired effects. This is what causes a dependency on the drug, and creates problems when mixed with the use of other recreational drugs like marijuana, alcohol, opiates and/or antidepressants.
Ambien Detoxification Doesn’t Have To Be Painful
Here at Chapters Capistrano, we know that you are probably feeling nervous and anxious about going through withdrawals, which may keep you using Ambien. We identify with this feeling and understand that withdrawal can be uncomfortable, but, it doesn’t have to be.
Through our Ambien rehabilitation program, we prescribe a mild medication you will take through the course of a medically supervised detox performed on site. You will feel at ease here during this process, while we keep our attention on your recovery. We will slowly taper off the medication until your body is stabilized and you no longer need the medication. This process helps minimize seizure risks as well as makes the withdrawal stage more comfortable.
