It is worth it to be free of addiction and regain your life. Once you’ve decided to choose freedom from dependency, you must find a trustworthy and knowledgeable addiction professional to help guide you towards the most suitable type of treatment.
Withdrawal from benzodiazepines can be potentially life-threatening and can cause severe seizures and coma. Benzodiazepines are often used along with other substances including alcohol and stimulants such as cocaine or methamphetamine. Benzodiazepines and other drugs are used for mood, mental, and sleep disorders.
Most people who misuse benzodiazepines have cross-addictions or dependencies on other substances. Withdrawal and detoxification from benzodiazepines are complex and dangerous on your own. Withdrawal and detoxification should be done under medical supervision. After detoxing from benzodiazepines, anxiety, depression, mood disorders and insomnia must be addressed in order to maintain sobriety.
Follow-up Care After Detoxification
One of the most important components of any detoxification program is after-care and relapse prevention. After very long periods of abusing the body and mind through addiction, it takes time to restore your health. With hard work and persistence, the rewards of a full recovery are well worth the journey.
