Benzodiazepine Addiction and Treatment

The Benzodiazepine addiction recovery program at Chapters Capistrano in Southern California is dedicated to creating personalized treatment programs for each client. We understand that because no addict is affected the same, no program should be the same.

General Information

Because Benzodiazepines, psychoactive drugs, sedate a user, they are often used for anxiety and insomnia, and to manage withdrawal from other drugs. Under a doctor’s supervision, Benzodiazepines can be safe and effective. But, when taken unsupervised for a prolonged time, many serious health risks can occur.

Effects of Benzodiazepine Abuse

Some side effects associated with taking Benzodiazepines without a doctor’s supervision include dizziness, depression, and impaired coordination. Chronic usage can lead an abuser to develop a dependence. The addict will usually increase Benzodiazepine consumption, since over time more is needed to create the desired sedative effect. When an addict uses Benzodiazepines in combination with other recreational drugs, it can lead to death.

Benzodiazepine Detoxification Withdrawal doesn’t have to be painful

The drug and alcohol rehab center at Chapters Capistrano is here to lead you toward a drug-free lifestyle. Our medical experts administer a drug-specific detox that will help lower the risk of seizure and lessen symptoms during withdrawal. We know that withdrawal can be uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be.! Clients are prescribed medication under a doctor’s supervision to lower the risk of seizure and ease withdrawal symptoms. Only when the body is stabilized, medication is stopped.

The Benzodiazepine rehab program at Chapters is committed to helping you end your drug dependency. Contact us today for more information about our personalized treatment programs. Our 24-hour helpline at 949-371-4198 is waiting for your call!
