This can cause benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms when they stop using benzos. Withdrawal symptoms can be severe when benzos are taken with other substances like alcohol.

A benzo addiction treatment center may begin with medical detox. Benzo drug addiction and withdrawal treatment usually involves a drug taper. During drug tapers, we decrease the dosage of benzos gradually. This can help prevent severe benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms. Medical detox also eases alcohol withdrawal if you’ve been abusing alcohol. Our physicians may use research-backed medications or alternative approaches to ease substance abuse withdrawal symptoms as appropriate.

During benzo detox, you’ll be cared for around the clock by our medical team. We’ll attend to any discomfort promptly. Promises’ drug and alcohol detox facility is welcoming and comfortable. It’s a nice contrast to a bare hospital setting.

In brief, a benzo addiction treatment center and alcohol detox includes:

  • 24/7 care by Promises’ medical team
  • Drug tapers
  • Medications to ease benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms
  • Medications to ease alcohol withdrawal symptoms
  • Alternative benzo and alcohol detox approaches (as appropriate)

Why You Need Inpatient Drug Rehab

Sometimes people downplay the seriousness of benzo addiction because it’s a prescription drug. However, benzo addictions are very common and can be dangerous. Benzodiazepines are useful when prescribed to treat conditions like panic disorders /panic attacks or to treat anxiety short-term. But dependence can quickly develop. Treatment of benzodiazepine dependence can be complicated, especially when alcohol abuse or a dual diagnosis is involved. Inpatient drug and alcohol rehab may be the best route depending on the severity of drug abuse.

Benzodiazepine Withdrawal is Complex

You may experience several uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms if you attempt benzo detox on your own. Symptoms depend on the severity of addiction and abuse. You may need alcohol detox as well, which can put you at risk for life-threatening alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Medical detox can help make benzodiazepine withdrawal safe and more comfortable. Withdrawal symptoms our medical team help ease include:

  • Heart palpitations
  • Muscular pain
  • Psychotic reactions
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Tremors
  • Sweating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Seizures

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms can exacerbate the process with issues like delirium tremens and heart tremors. That’s why medical detox with an experienced treatment team is critical.

There’s a High Risk of Benzo Addiction Relapse

Benzodiazepine abusers who’ve been using high doses of benzos are likely to relapse without comprehensive drug addiction treatment.  Abusing other drugs and alcohol with benzos make addiction recovery even more difficult. Co-occurring mental health disorders also complicate recovery.

Promises drug rehab supports long-term sobriety by:

  • Providing distance from substance abuse triggers
  • Getting to the root cause of drug abuse
  • Using proven therapies like cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Teaching relapse prevention skills
  • Easing benzodiazepine withdrawal, which can lead to relapse
  • Recommending non-addictive medications prescribed to treat anxiety and other mental illness
  • Providing aftercare planning for long-term addiction recovery

You Need Space and Time Away From Triggers

Recovering from drug addiction is extremely difficult if you’re still facing everyday triggers throughout the process. Inpatient drug rehab removes you from situations that contribute to abuse of drugs and alcohol. This gives you a chance to focus on yourself and getting better.

You’ll practice healthier ways of dealing with life’s stressors. An expert treatment team will help you address underlying mental illness and trauma that may be fueling drug abuse. You’ll leave drug rehab with new skills and insights that help you stay sober.

Access to Effective Benzodiazepine Addiction Treatments
