Benzodiazepines Addiction Treatment: The First Step Towards Recovery

What is Benzodiazepine Detox?

Benzodiazepine detox involves medications, psychotherapy, and relaxation techniques, serving as the initial step in addiction treatment. Benzodiazepines are widely prescribed for mental illness, with over 1 in 20 Americans receiving prescriptions annually. During detox, gradual dosage reduction occurs under medical supervision to safely eliminate the drug from the body and minimize withdrawal symptoms. Medically assisted detox may last from days to weeks, typically conducted in specialized facilities by trained professionals. Self-detox is discouraged due to potential dangers associated with benzodiazepine withdrawal.

Benzodiazepines Addiction Treatment: The First Step Towards Recovery

What is Benzodiazepine Withdrawal?

Withdrawal refers to uncomfortable symptoms that may arise when discontinuing an addictive substance, such as benzodiazepines. Symptoms can vary in severity and typically start within 24 hours after the last dose. With proper treatment, most symptoms resolve within days to weeks. The severity and duration of withdrawal depend on factors like duration of use, dosage, misuse patterns, co-occurring mental disorders, and use of other addictive substances like alcohol or opioids.
