Benzodiazepines, which are more commonly referred to as benzos, include popular name brand medications like Xanax, Valium, and Ativan. These kinds of medications are beneficial in the treatment of conditions such as sleep, seizure, and anxiety disorders. However, when benzos are abused, they can produce effects including feelings of profound relaxation and a detachment from one’s surroundings. When benzos are being misused, a person’s body can become tolerant to these substances, which can eventually cause a physical dependence.

If you find that you are addicted to benzos and are struggling to stop your abuse, you can benefit from professional treatment. If you obtain treatment that is comprehensive and includes detoxification services (more commonly known as detox), your addiction to benzos can be stopped for good.


What happens during benzo withdrawal

If you are abusing benzos on a regular basis and have begun increasing the amount and frequency that you are consuming, you may experience painful symptoms when you stop your abuse. This is known as withdrawal, and the symptoms associated with withdrawal can be extremely upsetting and include dizziness, cravings, and stomach pain. Unfortunately, when this is occurring, the efforts you make on your own can be futile and possibly lead to more severe substance abuse. Continuing with this pattern of substance abuse after you have stopped is known as a relapse. Relapsing is something that those in recovery should be prepared for. If you are struggling with one or more relapses, there is a high risk that you will remain trapped within a dangerous pattern of benzodiazepine abuse.

However, if you want to achieve recovery and end your benzo addiction for good, there is help available. By engaging in a program that includes detox, you can obtain the skills needed to avoid relapse and reach your recovery goals.
