Benzo Detox (Benzodiazepine Detox)

Benzodiazepine withdrawal, or benzo withdrawal, can be a challenging and dangerous process if not done under the care and supervision of medical professionals.  Between uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms and mental challenges associated with the withdrawal process, we recommend any individual who is experiencing withdrawal symptoms pursue a professional medical benzo detox and addiction treatment to keep you safe, comfortable, and prepared for the recovery journey ahead.

What are Benzodiazepines?

Benzodiazepines, commonly known as “benzos,” are widely prescribed prescription medications that include Klonopin and Ativan. These medications are generally used to treat generalized anxiety disorders and panic disorders and cause sedation to the central nervous system. 

Due to the sedative feeling the user receives, the body can become physically dependent on benzos, causing the user to seek higher dosages or more frequent use.

However, this prescription drug has a high risk of addiction, including psychological dependence and physiological dependence, and should be used with extreme caution.

Signs of a Benzodiazepine Addiction

If you or your loved one has been using benzodiazepines, it is important to be aware that addiction is possible. If you find yourself, a family member, or a friend participating in any of the following, it is time to seek treatment:

  • Using benzos without a prescription or going to illegal means to obtain more.
  • Lying to a doctor to receive prescription drugs or falsifying prescriptions.
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms that are only relieved by continued use.
  • Lying to friends and family about your benzo use or isolating yourself to use.
  • Losing your job, relationships, or getting into financial trouble to afford benzos.

Symptoms of Benzodiazepine Withdrawal

While a Benzo prescription may be valid and legal, drug addiction is a very real probability when it comes to benzodiazepine use. Due to the intense withdrawal symptoms, which are some of the most severe of all substances, many users combat withdrawal by using increased doses of benzos, creating a nasty and sometimes unmanageable cycle. 

Many individuals with benzodiazepine use disorder are convinced they can go cold turkey and navigate the distressing symptoms on their own, but soon find that the detox process can present life-threatening withdrawal symptoms.

If you or a loved one is going through benzo withdrawal, it is imperative you receive care at a medical detox center. Your life could be dependent on it.

Many try to detox at home on their own, but without proper medical supervision and assistance, you may not be able to manage the distressing withdrawal symptoms on your own. 

You can avoid rapid detox decline by going to a benzo detox center.

Benzodiazepine Detox withdrawal symptoms may include:

  • Insomnia
  • Panic
  • Irritability
  • Seizure disorders
  • Muscle aches
  • And more

Often, these symptoms can come on all at once and with major intensity. These clusters of immediate and severe symptoms are often referred to as benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome.

What is Medical Detox?

A medical detox process helps relieve the severe symptoms caused by a benzo detox, under the supervision of medical professionals at a certified detox treatment center.

Medically supervised detox allows for individuals to receive care that can make them more comfortable and most importantly, safe, during this challenging time.

Since the benzodiazepine withdrawal timeline and recovery process can vary between individuals, it is important to have medical monitoring.
