Benzo Addiction

Benzodiazepines or benzos refer to a class of prescription drugs used to treat mental health conditions like panic disorders, anxiety, and insomnia, among others.

The most common examples of benzodiazepines include Klonopin, Xanax, Valium, and Tranxene. These work as sedatives and provide a sense of euphoria to the user. This sense of pleasure attributes to its high addictive potential. People dependent on benzos start abusing them, consciously or unconsciously, increasing the risk of side effects and toxicity.

Treating Benzo Addiction Treatment Successfully

Our experienced therapists offer effective customized rehabilitation programs to help you break free from your dependency on benzos. We use evidence-based care interventions to meet specific needs of the patient.

Using Behavioral Therapies to Treat Benzo Addiction

Unfortunately, medicines alone cannot help you overcome your addiction to benzos. These need to be combined with behavioral therapies for effective care and long-term treatment outcomes. The goal of behavior therapy is to:

  • Focus on developing healthy life skills
  • Modifying behaviors and attitudes related to drug use
  • Adhering to medication and other treatment protocols

Symptoms of Benzodiazepine Addiction

Since benzos come under the category of prescription drugs, many people believe they are completely safe. However, this is not true and like many other prescription drugs, they too have a high abuse potential. When used outside of the prescription, they can produce hazardous results. Continuous and frequent use of benzodiazepines in higher doses can develop into an addiction. Once addicted, it can be difficult for an individual to quit without professional assistance, where Athena Behavioral Health can come to your rescue. To ensure timely treatment, it is important to identify early signs of Benzos addiction, which include:
  • Fatigue
  • Drowsiness
  • Slurred speech
  • Withdrawing from others
  • Memory impairment
  • Mood swings
  • Glassy eyes
  • Odd or irregular behavior
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Fluctuations in weight
