What to Know About Benzodiazepines
People are prescribed benzodiazepines to treat everything from seizures, to epilepsy, to insomnia, to anxiety and other mental health disorders. Most benzo addicts develop a tolerance gradually, which means when they initially try to stop taking the drug in question, they often experience a “rebound effect,” which makes the issue they first started taking it for feel even worse. This is why attempting to quit benzos on your own can be deadly, and why it is important to seek treatment in order to achieve long-term recovery from benzodiazepine dependence.
Fortunately, our trained recovery specialists know how to provide the effective, medically-supervised services you need to get better. When you first enter our Arizona benzo rehab center, you are likely to experience intense withdrawal symptoms. Although this process may be painful, it is also necessary, as your body must literally change its composition to learn how to function properly again and re-adjust to life without drugs.
At Decision Point Center, we offer benzodiazepine treatment for prescription drugs including:
Signs of Benzodiazepine Addiction
Benzodiazepine addiction may look different from person to person. Many times, friends and family members notice a benzo problem before the person struggling does.
The most common behavioral signs and symptoms of benzodiazepine addiction include:
- Being unable to cut back or quit using benzos despite a desire to do so
- Feeling unable to function without benzos
- Needing larger doses to feel the effects of benzos
- Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when you stop using benzos
- Taking someone else's prescribed benzodiazepine medication
- Forging prescriptions or seeing multiple doctors (doctor shopping) to acquire benzos
- Taking higher doses than prescribed or recommended
- Continuing to use benzodiazepines despite negative consequences
Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Symptoms
Once a person has developed a dependency, it can be very difficult to stop taking benzos due to the discomfort that comes when they stop taking the drug. This is commonly known as withdrawal. Benzo withdrawal symptoms can be so unpleasant that it often causes people to immediately relapse and return to using, sometimes at higher doses than before. This is extremely dangerous as it can increase a person's risk of overdose.
Benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms often include:
- Physical tremors / seizures
- Disrupted sleep schedule
In rare cases, a person experiencing benzodiazepine withdrawal may experience psychosis and convulsions. Others may also struggle with self-harm and contemplate or attempt suicide.
