Benzodiazepine addiction treatment addresses dependence on prescription drugs such as Xanax or Valium. These drugs, generally prescribed to treat anxiety, depress the central nervous system and produce a sedative effect.
Physicians may also prescribe benzodiazepines – also known as “benzos” or BZD – to treat insomnia, control seizures or as a muscle relaxer.
When used as prescribed, these drugs can be highly effective. When they are abused, however, chronic benzodiazepine addiction can occur. Benzodiazepine overdoses are becoming much more common as well. In combination with alcohol consumption, this drug can be fatal.
Excessive doses of BZD drugs can result in acute toxicity that includes confusion, weakness, blurred vision, difficulty breathing, coma and death. Chronic benzodiazepine addiction manifests in abrupt mood swings, increased anxiety, insomnia and failing performance at work or school.
Utah Xanax Addiction Treatment and Recovery
Aspire Addiction Recovery Centers offers a comprehensive treatment program designed specifically for benzodiazepine addiction recovery. Our unique program succeeds where other, more limited approaches to drug addiction may fail. Our treatment center provides non-12-step customized treatment plans to address both chronic Xanax addiction as well as acute use in combination with other drugs or alcohol.
Because benzodiazepine addiction can be physical, psychological or both, we provide an appropriate combination of medical management, psychotherapy and alternative treatment modalities designed to restore harmony in body and mind.
A Holistic Approach to Benzodiazepine Addiction Treatment
Clients of all ages, from young teens to seniors, experience benzodiazepine dependence. Because no single treatment approach can be effective in all cases, Aspire’s programs are tailored to the client’s unique needs.
Yoga is uniquely effective in treatment and recovery, strengthening both the mind and body while helping to curb the anxiety and depression that are common after recovery from benzodiazepine dependence. Meditation and the ancient Chinese practice of qi gong also help restore balance and calm the mind. Authentic movement practice and time spent in nature fill the void clients may experience in the treatment setting.
Psychotherapy in Addiction Treatment and Recovery
Our intensive psychotherapy programs provide our clients with the opportunity to work one-on-one with a highly trained and experienced therapist, as well as participate in group work and family sessions. Whereas traditional behavioral therapy only scratches the surface and addresses symptoms, our clients benefit significantly from this more in-depth exploration of themselves. It facilitates the recovery process and allows them to make lifestyle changes that contribute to healing and a healthy, happy future.
Dedicated case managers assist clients throughout their stays, ensuring they receive the best possible treatment and paving the way for their transition to outpatient treatment upon completion of our program.
