This class of drug is commonly prescribed to treat issues such as sleep and anxiety disorders. Due to the addictive nature of these substances, overuse and misuse can occur over time. Dependence on benzodiazepines can result in severe drug withdrawal symptoms, including hypertension; anxiety attacks; headaches; and muscle pain. More severe reactions to benzodiazepine drug withdrawal can include episodes of psychosis and seizures. Through inpatient treatment, our team can help you to alleviate these dangers associated with benzodiazepine drug withdrawal.
Your treatment will begin with a thorough health assessment and development of a plan to meet your immediate goals of detoxification. Your inpatient stay will be made comfortable by continual care and access to staff. As your physical benzodiazepine drug withdrawal symptoms subside, our team will be ready to assist you in addressing any emotional difficulties which arise. You will be supported with options to participate in individual and group therapy sessions, as well as options to participate in holistic programs, such as yoga; meditation; massage; and Tai Chi. Following your stay, you will be equipped with a follow-up plan to maintain your sobriety for the long term. This plan for aftercare is a vital part of your recovery success.
Heroin belongs to the opioid class of drugs. Many who currently use heroin have previously abused prescription opiates, and have become dependent on the effects. This can lead to seeking the opiate experience through soliciting illegal substances. While the number of prescription opiate-related hospital visits have declined over the past decade, instances of heroin-related emergency visits have increased. This is likely due to governmental and provider efforts to reduce the amount of prescription opiates made available.
Because of its serious symptoms, medically-supervised heroin drug detoxification gives users the support they need to withdraw from this highly addictive substance. Heroin withdrawal, in particular, results in physical, mental, and emotional suffering that can last for more than a week. Recovering users can experience severe intestinal issues; rapid heart rate; shivering; sweating; vomiting; anxiety; and depression. In some cases, these symptoms can be fatal. Our heroin drug detoxification treatment program seeks to minimize these uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal, and to maximize chances of a full, lasting, recovery.
This is a highly addictive class of drugs that includes pain killers as well as heroin and synthetic opioids. Over the past several years, abuse of opioids has drastically increased. Governmental agencies have even declared our nation to be in a state of emergency, due to the very high risk of addiction. Nearly 2 million Americans are reported as struggling with opioid addiction, and more than 100 people die, every day, from opioid overdose.
Detoxing from opiates can be an extremely uncomfortable – and even deadly – experience. Our state-of-the-art medical treatments can help to alleviate these highly unpleasant symptoms while reducing your physical and mental dependence on the effects of opiates.
