Do you feel stuck? Are you ready to conquer alcoholism but anxious about painful
alcohol detox? At
Decision Point, we do everything we can to empower you to make it through the toughest
parts of recovery, including detox. One of the many ways we seek to make
your recovery a little easier is by using benzodiazepines (commonly referred
to as “benzos”) to ease the pain of alcohol withdrawal.
How Do Benzodiazepines Help with Alcohol Detox?
Many people struggling with alcoholism attempt to quit on their own, only
to crumble or die under uncomfortable and potentially life-threatening
withdrawal symptoms, such as:
- Chills, fevers, sweats
- Difficulty falling or staying asleep
- General aches and pain throughout the body
- Migraines and headaches
- Persistent nausea, vomiting
- Physical, mental, and emotional agitation
- Elevated blood pressure and heart rate
Benzodiazepines are psychoactive drugs that function like mild tranquilizers.
When administered in a
safe, supervised environment and in appropriate doses, benzodiazepines can help alleviate your withdrawal
symptoms while you focus on getting better and resisting the temptation to drink.
When it comes to alcohol detox, benzos offer a number of great benefits,
- Reducing the risk of and preventing convulsions
- Muscle relaxation
- Minimized anxiety and agitation—and more
