Illinois Benzodiazepine (Diazepam) Detox & Rehabs

How fast can you become addicted to benzodiazepines?

Benzodiazepines, also known as benzos, are very addicting. However, the addiction rate varies from person to person. Furthermore, the quantity used is a major factor in determining how fast a person can become addicted to benzos.

Benzodiazepines work on the neurotransmitter GABA by calming the nerve impulses, which is why these drugs are commonly prescribed to treat insomnia and or anxiety. These particular drugs will cause a calming and soothing state for the user, and this is where the problem can start for many people. An addiction to benzodiazepines will cause severe physical and psychological dependencies. It is important for anyone who may be prescribed these drugs to never deviate from his or her prescription. Long-term addictions to these drugs can be difficult to treat, and in fact; most addicts will have to attend a medical detox, followed by inpatient drug treatment. Some of the commonly prescribed benzodiazepines include Niravam, Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, Halcion, and Ativan. Across the state of Illinois are many different types of drug treatment programs, and this includes both inpatient and outpatient centers. Residential drug rehab will typically work best, but this of course depends on the severity of the addiction.
