Ativan Addiction and Treatment

Addiction and Treatment

Chapters Capistrano is a premier leader in helping individuals recover from Ativan addiction.  The addiction experts at Chapters have created a highly personalized treatment program for individuals suffering from addiction. Each case of dependency is unique and needs to be treated as such. Therefore, treatment requires a specialized approach in order to ensure success and achieve freedom from drug addiction.

General Information

Ativan is a potent benzodiazepine. It is a psychoactive drug that can have a sedative, muscle relaxant, hypnotic effect on the user. It’s commonly used for treating anxiety and insomnia, as well as managing withdrawal symptoms from other recreational drugs. When used under a doctor’s supervision, it can be an effective and safe treatment; however, when used in an unsupervised manner over a long period of time, there are serious health risks.

Effects of Abuse

Side effects associated with prolonged, unsupervised are related to the user’s physical and mental health. These include dizziness, depression, and impaired coordination, as well as other health issues. Like other recreational drugs, chronic usage can lead to the addict developing a tolerance and dependency to the drug. The abuser will commonly increase their consumption of the drug to maintain the desired effect and to battle the developing tolerance. This process increases the individual’s dependence on the drug. Problems frequently occur, and Ativan can be fatal when an addict uses the drug with other recreational drugs, such as alcohol, opiates, or antidepressants.

Detoxification Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

At Chapters, we understand that most people are anxious about the idea of going through withdrawals of any kind and this keeps them using the drug. We recognize that withdrawal can be uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have to be.

Through the rehabilitation program at Chapters, our process engages the most traditional and safe form of withdrawal from using Ativan, which is a drug-specific detox. Clients receive mild prescription medication under medical supervision that reduces the risk of seizure and eases withdrawal symptoms. These medications generally are prescribed in tapering amounts until the body is physically stabilized.
