Signs of Benzodiazepine Dependence & Addiction
Benzodiazepines (also referred to as “benzos”) is a category of sedative medications used to treat issues such as anxiety, sleep disorders, panic disorders, and seizures. They are used to curb the body’s stress responses, make users feel more relaxed, and encourage sleep.
Though often prescribed by doctors to treat the aforementioned issues, patients often find themselves growing dependent on benzodiazepines within a matter of weeks.
You may be addicted to benzodiazepines if any of the following are true:
- You take them on a regular basis.
- You have continued to take them beyond the prescribed amount of time.
- You have visited multiple doctors in order to obtain additional prescriptions for benzodiazepine medication.
- You have asked friends, family members, or others if you can have their benzodiazepine medication.
- You have engaged in risky or uncharacteristic behaviors while using the drug or in order to get more of it.
- You require more and more of the drug to get the same level of relief.
How Long Does Benzodiazepine Detox Take?
Depending on the amount of time you have been dependent on benzodiazepines, your withdrawal symptoms could last anywhere between 1 week to 2 years. The amount of time your recovery will take depends on your particular type of benzodiazepine drug and how long you have been using it. As you consider taking the leap and wonder whether now is the time to get help, remember:
The longer your use continues, the more challenging detox will be.
What Is the Best Way to Detox from Benzodiazepines?
Do not try to quit benzodiazepines without assistance. The only advisable way to break free from addiction to benzodiazepines is under medical supervision. Otherwise, you could sustain serious injuries and long-term physical damage to your brain and internal organs. Without a doctor’s close eye and deliberate help wean you off the drug, benzodiazepine withdrawals can be deadly.
