Benzodiazepine Addiction Treatment: Overcoming Dependency and Starting a New Life
While quite a few people consume benzodiazepines safely for health purposes, these substances do have a high chance for addiction. If your drug use has gotten out of control, Evolve Recovery Center can help get your life back on track. Our benzo rehab uses established techniques to treat both the mental and physical effects of benzodiazepine use disorder.
What Are Benzos?
Benzodiazepines are tranquilizers that slow the nervous system, which results in calm feelings and muscle relaxation. Doctors often prescribe benzos to address issues like anxiety, insomnia, and panic attacks. Well-known benzodiazepines include
- Alprazolam (Xanax)
- Triazolam (Halcion)
- Midazolam (Versed)
- Lorazepam (Ativan)
- Chlordiazepoxide (Librium)
- Diazepam (Valium)
- Clonazepam (Klonopin)
How To Tell If You Require Benzodiazepines Rehab
Although numerous take benzodiazepines in a safe fashion, benzos become dangerous when misused. You or someone you love might have a benzodiazepine dependency if you exhibit negative changes in:
- School or work performance
- Normal hygiene and appearance
- Mood and how you respond to situations
- How you relate to people
You should look for addiction services if you seek benzodiazepines from friends and family or attempt to visit multiple doctors to get drugs. Risky activities like driving while “high” or using benzos with alcohol are also major indications you need help.
Additionally, an addiction to benzodiazepines might cause health problems including:
- Physical weakness
- Blurred vision
- Slurred speech
- Lack of coordination
- Trouble breathing
- Stroke or coma
