Benzos 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 Benzos. Each case of 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. Benzos 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 Abuse

Side effects associated with prolonged, unsupervised use 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. The abuser will commonly increase their consumption of the drug to maintain the desired effect, and battle the developing tolerance. This process increases their dependency. 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.

Detoxification Withdrawal Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

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

Through the rehab program at Chapters, our process engages the most traditional and safe form of withdrawal from using drugs, which is a drug-specific detox, meaning we wean you off the specific drug or drugs you’re specifically using. 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.

Chapters Capistrano recognizes the unique challenges presented by Benzo addiction. Contact Chapters today to learn more about our personalized rehab program. Beat your addiction today and enjoy sober living, call our 24 hour helpline at 949-371-4198 or email today.
