Benzo Withdrawal Treatment

When Benzo Becomes the Cause of Anxiety

sprout_fl_xanaxBenzodiazepine (Benzo for short) is a common medication for anxiety. It doesn’t actually treat anxiety, but it can temporarily solve the symptoms of a panic attack or other symptoms of anxiety. The gratification that comes with the relief of these symptoms poses a huge problem: Addiction.

Addiction to Benzos

It starts with the doctor prescribed fix to what was unavoidably unbearable. When things go wrong, Benzo is taken to calm things down. The problem with this temporary solution is that the user slowly loses their ability to cope with anxiety on their own and starts to depend on the Benzos for help. Overuse of Benzodiazepines limits the brain’s ability to be happy and calm. The brain becomes dependent on the medication and withdrawal symptoms follow when the effects of the pills wear off.

Withdrawal symptoms of Benzos include:

  • Increased Anxiety
  • Nightmares
  • Physical Pain
  • Restlessness
  • Weakness
  • Seizure, Spasms, and tremors
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea, vomiting, and indigestion
  • Mood swings
  • Memory loss
  • Severe depression

The problem with these withdrawal symptoms is that these very symptoms are what the medication was meant to treat in the first place. The users were experiencing some of these symptoms before taking the medication. The only option they have to combat these symptoms is more benzo, eventually getting so hooked that abrupt termination of this drug would be deadly.

Benzo Addiction Must be Treated with Care

Sprout Health Florida understands that the dangers of Benzodiazepine addiction are serious and often fatal. Their experienced health professionals start every addiction treatment plan with a series of questions and evaluations that help the staff understand every patient’s exact situation and unique needs.

Treatment is then followed by a careful detox and close supervision. This process is very delicate, so our medical specialists wean these patients off the drug very slowly and cautiously.

Followed by the detox is therapy treatment, the only drug-free solution to anxiety. We use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy customized to each individual with the goal of getting our patients back on their feet and managing stress confidently on their own.

Call Sprout Health Florida if someone you know has a Benzo addiction and needs help.
