Benzodiazepine Addiction and Treatment

Chapters Capistrano is a premier leader in handling Benzodiazepine addiction. The addiction experts at Chapters have created a highly personalized treatment program for individuals addicted to Benzodiazepines. Each case of Benzodiazepine dependence is unique and requires a specialized approach to ensure success and allow an addict to achieve freedom from drug dependency.

Benzodiazepine Addiction and Treatment Information

Benzodiazepines are psychoactive drugs that can have a sedative, muscle relaxant, hypnotic effect on the user. Benzodiazepines are 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 Benzodiazepine Abuse

Side effects associated with prolonged, unsupervised use of Benzodiazepines 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 dependence upon Benzodiazepines. The abuser will commonly increase their consumption of the drug to maintain the desired effect, and battle the developing tolerance. This process increases their dependence on Benzodiazepines. Problems frequently occur, and Benzodiazepines can be fatal when an addict uses the drug in combination with other recreational drugs, such as alcohol, opiates, or antidepressants.

Benzodiazepine Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

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

Through the Benzodiazepine rehab program at Chapters, our process engages the most traditional and safe form of withdrawal from using Benzodiazepines, 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.
