North Carolina Benzodiazepine (Diazepam) Detox & Rehabs

How to recognize benzodiazepines abuse

Benzodiazepines, also known as benzos, have a high risk of being abused. Taking higher than recommended doses leads to abuse, which can result in impaired judgment, poor coordination, amnesia, drowsiness, irritability, blurred vision, and confusion.

Benzodiazepines are a class of drug known as tranquilizers and sedatives, and are commonly prescribed to treat insomnia, seizures, anxiety, and to also help with alcohol withdrawal symptoms. There are many different brand names of benzodiazepines, and this includes Niravam, Ativan, Xanax, Klonopin, Valium, and Restoril. When these drugs are prescribed, they will come with strict instructions, because the risk of dependency is very high. In fact, a little over 40% of the people who are prescribed these drugs end up becoming dependent on them. The long-term use of these drugs will cause severe and painful withdrawal symptoms. Even if someone has only been taking these substances for a short period, they will still experience withdrawal pains. The proper treatment approach to help this problem will involve a medical detox facility. The medical detox process will have the proper medical supervision. Throughout the state of North Carolina are different inpatient and outpatient drug treatment centers to help addicts and their families.
