Benzodiazepine Addiction Treatment

While addiction is commonly associated with drugs and alcohol, it can be related to anything that causes you to have extreme cravings or urges towards something. Addiction, in simply put terms, is a disease where you have no control over using or doing something even when it has severe negative consequences. One of the most dangerous substances to get addicted to is called benzodiazepines, also known as benzos. According to research, about 2.3% to 18% of Americans have misused benzos for nonmedical use in their lifetime. Although widely prescribed to combat anxiety and insomnia, benzos are extremely addictive and can be difficult to detox from. Becoming aware of the signs and symptoms of benzodiazepine addiction can help you understand if you or a loved one may need treatment. The Addiction Treatment Solutions understands benzo addiction inside and out. We are here to help you leave those addictive medications behind with the help of quality, evidence-based treatment options.

Let's Talk About
How Benzos Work

What are Benzodiazepines?

Benzodiazepines are a class of psychoactive drugs used to treat a range of conditions, including anxiety and insomnia. They are one of the most widely prescribed medications in the United States, and one of the most widely abused. There are different types of drugs that fall under the benzodiazepine class, including Ativan and Xanax. Along with treating anxiety and stress related conditions, these medications are used to stop you from having a seizure and treat pain. These medications are incredibly addictive due to the powerfully sedative nature they have. Doctors prescribe the medication with a specific dosage and frequency of use meant to ensure safe use of the drug. If you do use benzos for prolonged periods of time and take more than prescribed, you can become addicted.
