Ativan is a benzodiazepine, which is a highly psychoactive drug that can cause sedative, relaxant and hypnotic effects on its users. It is prescribed for relief of symptoms from withdrawals of recreational drugs, but more commonly for anxiety and insomnia. Under medical supervision, Ativan is very effective for its intended treatments. But it has become popular for uses that can cause serious health risks if and when used over a long period of time.
Effects of Ativan Abuse
Long term and unmanaged use of Ativan causes issues with physical and mental health. These often include depression, dizziness, impaired coordination and other problems. When used frequently and in higher doses, Ativan users will require more of the drug in order to keep from building a tolerance to its effects. This process increases dependency. Using Ativan alongside other recreational drugs like opiates, alcohol or antidepressants can cause very serious health problems and in some instances, even death.
Ativan Detoxification Doesn’t Have To Be Painful
We know that facing withdrawals from Ativan addiction is a terrifying thought. The anxiety that surrounds this first step in recovery could keep you using Ativan. We know that it’s uncomfortable to think about this, but it doesn’t have to be.
The Ativan rehab program at Chapters Capistrano engages a traditional and safe approach to withdrawal from using Ativan. This process is a drug specific detox alongside a mild prescription that will be tapered off slowly while your body stabilizes. This approach will ease the withdrawal stage while also reducing the risk of seizures.
Chapters’ staff is very compassionate and caring, and understands that recovery from Ativan addiction isn’t easy. That’s why we customize an individual program that will work for you to help you beat the addiction and fully recover from Ativan addiction.
