Benzodiazepines, which include commonly prescribed medications such as Xanax, Valium, and Ativan, can be highly effective in helping those who grapple with conditions such as anxiety, sleep, and seizure disorders. However, these substances can be highly addictive and produce feelings of relaxation and detachment from one’s surroundings when abused. The longer that the abuse of a medications such as benzodiazepines, which are more commonly referred to as benzos, continues, the more tolerant the body becomes, possibly leading to the development of an addiction.

If you have found that you are having a difficult time attempting to end your benzo abuse, you can benefit from professional care found at a reputable treatment center. Most importantly, it can be critical to find a treatment center that offers detox services so that your addiction can be thoroughly cared for.

What to Expect

What to expect during detox from benzos

If you are abusing benzos on a regular basis and increasing the amount and the frequency in which you are using, you can begin to experience many distressing symptoms when your use ends. Known as withdrawal, these symptoms can be extremely painful and upsetting, and can include dizziness, cravings, and stomach pain, to name a few. Unfortunately, when this occurs, your efforts to get sober can be tested and cause you to go back to the abuse of benzos to obtain relief.

If you are experiencing withdrawal outside of a treatment center, you can succumb to the discomfort of these symptoms and continue to use. This is known as relapse, and it is something that everyone in recovery should always be prepared for. If you have experienced one or more relapses, there is a higher chance that you will continue to stay within the confines of this addiction.

However, if you are ready to put an end to your benzo addiction, there is help available. By engaging in a program at a treatment center that offers detox services, you can begin to obtain the skills needed to make strides in your recovery.

What Past Clients Say

I came here during the worst time of my life. I had so much anxiety coming in but the girls in the admissions area were so pleasant and answered all my questions. The hospital was clean and staff were friendly and helpful on the unit. The medicine they gave me helped so much, and I finally feel like myself again. If you’re willing to participate and go to all the groups, you will get something out of the program. I went right from inpatient to their day program for a week afterwards, and that helped me stay focused too.
