Valium Addiction Rehab in Orange County

Utilizing Evidence-Based Substance Abuse Treatment in Southern California

One of the prescription drugs most prone to abuse is Valium. These pills are a type of long-lasting benzodiazepine, a class of anti-anxiety medications that includes similar medications, such as Xanax. When taken as prescribed, Valium can effectively help quell anxiety and panic attacks; however, it is widely abused.

The reason well-meaning people can become addicted to Valium very quickly is because it is deeply relaxing and can give the user a feeling of mild euphoria. Tolerance to the initial dose builds quickly, though, and even those who have never abused drugs in their lives can become addicted.

You're not alone in this battle.

Am I Addicted to Valium?

You may be addicted to Valium if:

  • You find yourself continually upping the recommended dose to get the same relief.
  • You take Valium even if you don’t feel anxious.
  • You hide your Valium use from coworkers, friends, or family.
  • You crave Valium and worry about where you’ll get your next dose.
  • You “doctor shop” to procure more Valium.

The Short- & Long-Term Effects of Valium Abuse

Valium is addictive because of the wave of euphoria it creates as it floods the brain with dopamine. This pleasurable rush can make users crave more and more. Unfortunately, this can create a perfect storm. Even those who initially had a legitimate need for Valium often up their prescribed dose to chase the feeling they experienced when they took their first dose.

As users continue to pop Valium pills, the side effects increase. User may experience mental fog, drowsiness, dizziness, blurred vision, depression, sleep disturbances, and other symptoms. Valium and other benzo drugs change the brain’s chemistry over time, which causes intense withdrawal when abruptly stopped. Users may experience Valium withdrawal symptoms such as sweating, nausea, irritability, muscle pain, and difficulty concentrating if they go cold turkey.

How Can I Get Clean from Valium?

A careful medically supervised detox from Valium can recalibrate the brain, and withdrawal symptoms will not be as severe.
