Addiction to Benzodiazepine

by De'Meko, June 12, 2013

Benzodiazepine Addiction and Treatment

A premier Benzodiazepine (Benzo) addiction recovery center is Chapters Capistrano in beautiful Orange County, California. Treatment programs are exceptionally personalized, because no addict is affected by Benzodiazepine addiction the same. Chapters addiction experts develop a specialized approach for each client to guarantee recovery and a future drug-free life.

General Information

When taken under a doctor’s care, Benzodiazepines can be safe and helpful for insomnia, anxiety, and withdrawal from other recreational drugs. These psychoactive drugs create a sedative, muscle relaxant, hypnotic effect on the body. Although, when not prescribed by a doctor, taking Benzo’s recreationally for extended periods will cause serious health problems.

Effects of Benzodiazepine Abuse

Dizziness, depression, and impaired coordination are some side effects of Benzo abuse. An addict will build up tolerance and thus will increase the dose, or, sometimes, combine Benzo’s with other drugs, such as opiates, antidepressants, or alcohol. Such combinations can lead to death.

Benzodiazepine Detoxification Withdrawal doesn’t have to be painful

Many Benzodiazepine addicts refuse a addiction treatment program because experiencing withdrawal can be painful. The Chapters’ addiction experts are here to guarantee your detox is safe and comfortable. Our medical team prescribes medications in lessening doses until the body is stabilized and the risk of seizure and withdrawal symptoms are gone.

The drug and alcohol rehab center at Chapters Capistrano wants to guide you toward an addiction free life. Call our 24-hour helpline at 949-371-4198 today for more information about our personalized addiction programs!
