Benzodiazepine Drug Rehab in Dana Point

Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment Serving Orange County & Southern California

Anti-anxiety medications fall under the umbrella of benzodiazepines, or simply “benzos.” Since their introduction to the market in the 1960s, benzos have been regularly prescribed to treat anxiety disorders, insomnia, alcohol detox, and other conditions. While they are highly effective when used as prescribed, these pills can easily be abused.

The most commonly abused benzos are:

  • Xanax
  • Ativan
  • Klonopin
  • Valium
  • Halcion
  • Librium

Am I Addicted to Benzos?

When addiction begins to set in, benzo users may notice they need more pills to experience the same state of intense relaxation and euphoric high they experienced when they first took the pills. This indicates a growing tolerance, which is a classic warning sign of addiction. Eventually, the person who once had a legitimate need for a benzo prescription will find themselves physically and psychologically dependent on their pills. The intense cravings for more benzos can lead to poor judgment calls, such as failing to follow through with school and/or work obligations, relationship troubles, and loss of interest in formerly enjoyable activities. Other warning signs of addiction include experiencing withdrawal symptoms when pills are not on hand, such as dizziness, sweating, tremors, and nausea. To disguise their substance abuse, the addict may isolate themselves and become irritable and agitated when confronted about their unusual behavior.

Benzo Addiction Recovery

Getting clean from benzo abuse takes more than just willpower. Freeing yourself from a powerful addiction takes a collaborative, team approach from experienced addiction treatment specialists, starting with a supervised medical detox. The purpose of detoxification is only to get the drug safely out of your system and stave off the painful symptoms associated with withdrawal – you are not considered “recovered” once you are out of detox. Everyone recovers in a unique way, but at Dana Point Rehab Campus, we use evidence-based addiction treatment techniques to set you on the path to lifelong sobriety. We treat each person as a unique individual and cater treatment to their needs.
