Learn more about detoxification from benzos
Benzodiazepines such as Ativan, Xanax, and Valium can be highly beneficial to individuals who suffer from sleep, anxiety, and/or seizure disorders. However, they are also extremely potent substances that are often abused by individuals who do not have a medical need for them. Also referred to as benzos, these substances can cause feelings of relaxation and a sense of detachment from one’s surroundings. The longer that this type of substance abuse persists, the more tolerant one’s body becomes to the benzo or benzos that are being abused, and a chemical dependency can develop.
Those who find that they are not able to stop their abuse of benzos are in need of effective treatment. When someone obtains comprehensive care that includes detoxification (or detox) services, an addiction to this substance can be stopped in its tracks. Therefore, if you or someone you care for wants to stop the deadly cycle of benzo addiction, it is best to seek care at a program that offers detox.
Learn more about what happens during withdrawal from benzos
When someone abuses benzos regularly, increasing the amount and frequency of his or her use as time goes on, a number of painful symptoms can occur when the abuse of the benzo(s) stops. Known as withdrawal, these symptoms can be upsetting and include stomach pain, dizziness, and cravings for more of one’s benzo of choice. Unfortunately, when this form of upset is occurring, one’s efforts to get sober can be compromised and start up a deadly cycle of more serious substance abuse.
For many who experience withdrawal outside of the confines of a treatment center, withdrawal symptoms can cause individuals to go right back to the use of benzos once again. Resuming one’s benzo abuse after abstaining from use is known as relapse, which is something that all individuals in recovery should prepare themselves for. If an individual suffers from one or more relapses, there is an increased risk that he or she will remain trapped within the grips of benzo addiction.
However, when someone is ready to achieve sobriety and put his or her abuse of benzos in the past, there is help available. By partaking in a program that includes detox, an individual, no matter how significant his or her addiction might be, can obtain many skills and achieve his or her recovery goals.
