Benzo Treatment

Benzo Addiction Treatment

Benzodiazepines are a type of prescription drug often referred to as benzos. They’re often used to help prevent seizures or relieve issues with muscle spasms or anxiety, and they have sedative properties that make them appropriate for use as a sleep aid in some situations. Unfortunately, benzos are some of the most frequently abused prescription drugs, due in part to their accessibility. Benzo addiction treatment is available and can be done in a safe, comfortable environment with our Benzo rehab.

Some common benzodiazepines include Valium, Xanax, Klonopin and Ativan. The Drug Enforcement Administration notes that while anyone might become physically dependent on these drugs after taking them as part of a prescription, the drugs are also often abused by young people who crush them up to snort or take them orally to achieve a high.

No matter how or why you are using benzos, if you are doing so outside of the direction of a medical professional or you find yourself unable to stop using without experiencing withdrawal symptoms, then it might be time to seek assistance to get off these drugs. Benzo treatment in a professional setting is a way to approach your chemical dependency in a safe, comforting environment.

Benzo Addiction Detox: Often a First Step Toward Recovery

Many people opt to begin benzo treatment with medically assisted detox. By working with our top trained clinical and medical staff, you take part in making decisions about your recovery and where you need to start with rehab. Detox lets you ensure your body is free of benzos without the risks that you’ll succumb to withdrawal symptoms or find yourself suffering needlessly. We offer a step-down approach that lets you slowly wean off benzos in a comfortable, caring setting.

Benzo Rehab: continuing the journey

After detox, you might be ready to tackle some of the underlying causes of drug use or abuse in your life, which you can do in our fully licensed inpatient benzo treatment program. We offer amenities such as luxury beds and chef prepared meals so you don’t feel deprived during your time at Lumiere Healing Centers, letting you concentrate more fully when working with therapists and counselors to identify triggers for drug use and develop healthy coping mechanisms and habits to help you stay off drugs in the future.

Our inpatient, partial hospitalization and outpatient approaches to benzo treatment include group and individual therapy, recreational and social activities, medical management for pain or other issues as needed and the development of strong aftercare and followup plans.
