Benzodiazepine Rehab

Benzodiazepines, more commonly known as “benzos” are central nervous system (CNS) depressants. They’re most often prescribed to treat things like severe anxiety and insomnia. Both anxiety and insomnia together or on their own, can be debilitating and life-altering. This is why heavy medications like Benzos may be prescribed – reducing anxiety and getting better sleep greatly improve quality of life. Unfortunately, doctors must be careful with this drug as it’s highly addictive. Especially for those that struggle with anxiety and/or sleep, not taking it can be scary.

It’s when you take it outside of your doctor’s recommendation that dependencies and addictions are most at risk of developing. Dealing with sleep troubles, severe anxiety, and anything similar is a real struggle no matter how you slice it. Adding a struggle with drugs can make you feel hopeless, but our benzodiazepine rehab center is here to help.

Signs and Symptoms of Benzodiazepine Addiction

Although a prescription is the only legal way to obtain Benzos, many find ways to get them illegally. As soon as you start using them without a prescription or more than recommended, or for longer than prescribed, you’re at risk of becoming dependent and eventually addicted. If you’re struggling yourself or are concerned for a loved one, you can watch for both physical and behavioral symptoms:

  • Drowsiness
  • Unsteadiness
  • Fainting
  • Light-headedness
  • Blurred vision
  • Muscle weakness
  • Headaches
  • Social withdrawal
  • Isolation from family
  • Neglecting obligations and responsibilities at home and work
  • Going out of the way and breaking the law to obtain prescriptions or the drug itself
  • Dropping out of hobbies and activities
  • Frequent confusion
  • Memory problems
  • Poor concentration
  • Mood swings
  • Hostility and irritability
  • Unregulated emotions

If you’re struggling yourself or are concerned for a loved one, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions. We’re happy to help and offer as much guidance as we can – perhaps our residential benzodiazepine rehab in Ontario is a good solution.

There are many immediate and short-term symptoms you may experience as a result of frequent and chronic Benzo use. While these are often unpleasant, the long-term health risks are much more serious.

These health risks are one of the many reasons a good-quality benzodiazepine recovery program is so important for men and women. Some of these things are treatable and reversible, but some will do permanent damage!

Chronic use of Benzos can put you at risk for things like:

  • Cognitive impairment
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Suicide ideation
  • PTSD
  • Sleep disorders
  • Psychosis
  • Delirium
  • Neurocognitive disorders

Like any drug, other risks include overdose and withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal can be quite dangerous, especially if not monitored.

Withdrawal symptoms can include:

  • Muscle aches and tension
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Hallucinations
  • Paranoia
  • Seizures
  • Nausea
  • Restlessness
  • Poor memory
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion

To help you through this process, our facility offers a safe and effective benzodiazepine detox program. We have staff onsite 24/7 to offer help and support as needed, while we can put measures in place to make withdrawing as comfortable as possible.

Our benzodiazepine addiction rehab program also offers the support you need to get through any cravings or triggers and avoid a relapse. This keeps you safe from risks of overdose, which can include respiratory problems, coma, and they can even be fatal.

Benzodiazepine addiction recovery often depends on a great and effective program. Our benzodiazepine rehab center Ontario focuses on various proven therapies and other techniques and methods.

Science-Backed Treatment

The average stay at our center lasts about 30-45 days, during which time you’ll have several sessions throughout each week. Our highly qualified counselors and therapists are trained and well-versed in many types of therapies so they’ll cater a treatment plan for you specifically.

Your stay will consist of various types of therapy:

  • Individual therapy. Behavioral therapies such as CBT and DBT are common for treating several things, including addiction. Behavioral therapy helps you better identify negative behaviors and thinking patterns and teaches you to manage them better. It’ll also help you create better, more positive patterns and boundaries.
  • Group therapy. We accept a limited number of people into our long-term benzodiazepine rehab. Although a small group,it’s still enough to participate in some deep and powerful discussions. You’ll cover topics like triggers, coping mechanisms, anger management, life skills, and more. Group therapy helps you feel less alone and gives you a fresh perspective on treatment and recovery. It can boost your confidence and teach you some new things.
  • Dual-diagnosis. Dual-diagnosis treatment for benzodiazepine addiction is an important part of treatment for many. Things like anxiety and depression often occur at the same time as addiction, and this can require a different approach to treatment.

Holistic Benzodiazepine Rehab

For the most complete and long-lasting recovery, we believe that you must address mind, body, and spirit. This is why we take a holistic approach to healing at Lily Recovery. To help you accomplish this, we offer a variety of additional activities and resources to supplement our substance abuse treatment for mend and women addicted to benzodiazepines.  You’ll have access to things like meditation, yoga, journaling, art therapy, NA/CA/AA sessions, walks in nature, workout equipment, and more.

In addition to safety, comfort, and comprehensive treatment, this is another benefit to choosing an inpatient program over outpatient benzodiazepine treatment. You may even find you leave here with a few new hobbies and habits – not to mention healthier coping mechanisms and a greater sense of peace.
