Benzodiazepine Addiction Recovery

by De'Meko, June 12, 2013

Chapters Capistrano in Southern California offers Benzodiazepine addiction recovery. Because no addict is the same, our drug and alcohol rehab center understands the importance of personalizing treatment programs to ensure a client’s successful rehabilitation.

General Information

Benzodiazepines, which are psychoactive drugs with hypnotic, sedative, muscle relaxant effects, are often prescribed for insomnia, anxiety, and withdrawal from other addictive drugs. Under a doctor’s supervision, such drugs can be safe and useful. However, when Benzodiazepines are taken without a doctor’s supervision for prolonged periods, an addict’s health suffers greatly.

Effects of Benzodiazepine Abuse

The physical side effects of using Benzodiazepines unsupervised for long periods of time include dizziness, depression, and impaired coordination. Over time, an addict will develop a tolerance and dependance for the drug. To feel the sought-after effect, an addict will most likely increase the quantity. Combining Benzodiazepines with other drugs such as opiates, antidepressants, or alcohol can be lethal.

Benzodiazepine Detoxification Withdrawal doesn’t have to be painful

Often, the fear of a painful withdrawal from Benzodiazepine addiction influences addicts from avoiding rehabilitation. The Benzodiazepine rehab program at Chapters is committed to making withdrawal as comfortable and safe as possible. We use a drug-specific detox; we administer prescribed medications in tapering amounts under medical supervision so the risk of seizure and withdrawal symptoms are lessened.

The Chapters Capistrano Benzodiazepine addiction recovery team recognizes the great challenges of becoming drug free and are here to guide you in your recovery. Contact our 24-hour helpline at 949-371-4198 for more information.
