Benzodiazepine Detox

Professional Help: Benzo Detoxes in California

Benzodiazepines are categorized as CNS (Central nervous system) depressants. They are popularly termed as Benzos. These are prescription pills administered by skilled practitioners. They are highly beneficial to ease the painful symptoms associated with seizure, insomnia, anxiety and panic disorders. Also, in such cases, they are prescribed and consumed for short-term. Contrarily, benzodiazepines have become one of the highly abused drugs for recreational purposes due to their mind altering properties. The withdrawal symptoms for benzos are immensely painful and alarmingly life-threatening. Most often Benzodiazepines withdrawal symptoms are worse than that of opiates. The symptoms include seizures, or even heart or brain failure. Hence, New Spirit strongly recommends undergoing benzodiazepine detox only under skilled-medical assistance.

Our credentialed-specialists and skilled-medical counselors are here to make sure your journey through detox is comfortable, convenient and safe. Time and again, it has been proven that the greater the comfort level of the detox user, the higher are the chances of getting clean.

A Prescribed Problem: High-Quality Benzo Detoxes in California

Benzodiazepines are commonly consumed by millions of them as a prescription pill for pain-relief. However, not every Benzo-user can be labelled as an addict. Nevertheless, like all prescription medications, Benzo-users who consume prescription-pills are also highly likely to develop a tolerance that leads to physical dependence. There has been a rising concern over the use of Benzos as a prescription-pill. Statistics prove that from 1996 to 2013 there has been a hike by 67% in the number of Benzo-users as a prescription-medication. From 8.1 million consumers in 1996, it has inflated to 13.5 million users by 2013. Another alarming observation is that between 2001 and 2013, the rates of co-prescribing benzodiazepines and opioids have almost doubled. With the ever increasing prescriptions the risk of overdose has increased by 400℅ when benzos are mixed with substance like alcohol or opiates.

Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Symptoms

The factors involved in severity and duration of withdrawals may be different from person to person and depends on various factors, length of usage (i.e., is it short-term-use or long-term-use) and if it is long-acting or short-acting benzos. Someone who uses Benzos recreationally for years on end will have severe withdrawal symptoms than someone who has uses it on a short-term, for instance three months. Also, the withdrawal symptoms for short-acting benzos are quicker and more intense than for long-acting benzos. In case of the former, withdrawal symptoms can start within hours of the user's last use, and as for the latter, it can take more than 24 hours. These withdrawals involve chronic pain, as well as psychological and physical distress. The severity of withdrawal increases as time fades. Crippling anxiety, mild sweats, intense drug cravings, crawling skin, muscle spasms, restlessness, irrational thoughts are some of the predominant withdrawal symptoms in the nascent stages. Eventually, along with these symptoms, there can also be goosebumps and cold sweats; diarrhea and vomiting; watering eyes and headaches; abdominal, muscle and joint pain; heightened restlessness and anxiety. In certain cases, the symptoms can prove fatal too. Hence, detoxing without skilled medical assistance can increase the chances of failure or relapse or sometimes death too.
