Confidential Outpatient Treatment for Benzodiazepine Addiction
Benzodiazepines, such as Xanax®, Klonopin®, Valium® and Ativan® are often prescribed as anti-anxiety medications. They can also increase drowsiness and promote sleep. While Benzodiazepines may be useful in the short-term, they are potentially addictive and can hinder overall quality of life in the long term.
Benzodiazepines are central nervous system depressants. They work by slowing down the brain’s normal activity. Withdrawal from Benzodiazepines can be difficult and may need to be conducted in a medical detoxification program. When someone stops taking Benzodiazepines, there is often a rebound effect that can cause seizures or other harmful medical consequences.
