Vita Recovery provides high-quality rehabilitation services to individuals struggling with all kinds of drug addictions, including addiction to benzodiazepines. Though benzos have been prescribed to calm down patients, they’re also highly addictive, and people who abuse them over time can develop depression, among other negative health conditions. At our modern and warm benzodiazepine rehab in Miami, you can receive the professional help you need to get sober in an environment that feels like home. Our team believes you shouldn’t have to sacrifice comfort as you begin the difficult process of recovery.

Call us at (786) 559-0623 or contact us online to learn more about our drug addiction programs. We can work closely with you to create a customized treatment plan that addresses all your needs.

What are Benzodiazepines?

Benzodiazepines are classified as sedatives or tranquilizers because they act on the central nervous system to slow down its vital functions by helping to produce an influx of GABA—a neurotransmitter responsible for getting us to sleep and calm down. As a result, taking benzodiazepines makes one feel relaxed and sleepy, which is why they’re often prescribed to treat anxiety.

Other medical uses for benzodiazepines include:

  • Panic disorder
  • Seizures
  • Epilepsy
  • Sleeping aid
  • Alcohol withdrawal
  • Skeletal muscle relaxant
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • PTSD

Some common benzodiazepines you may have heard of include:

  • Valium (diazepam)
  • Xanax (alprazolam)
  • Klonopin (clonazepam)
  • Ativan (lorazepam).

Benzodiazepines are often used for recreational purposes because of their short-term relief and relaxing effects, but over time, people’s bodies adapt to the drug, and users will need higher doses to feel the same effects. And because benzodiazepines are ultimately depressants, they can cause users to develop anxiety, insomnia, and depression over time, defeating the reason why so many people abuse them in the first place.

Can People Overdose on Benzos?

Because tolerance to benzodiazepines develops quickly, overdose is a genuine risk among those who abuse the drug. When you need more of the drug to feel better, you may accidentally take a dose that is too high, resulting in serious symptoms like slurred speech, difficulty breathing, and coma. A person’s risk of overdose also increases when they inject or snort benzos, or when they combine them with other substances like alcohol or opiates.

The following are symptoms associated with benzodiazepine abuse—we recommend seeking medical attention if any of your symptoms become serious, or if your loved one’s life appears to be in danger:

  • Confusion

  • Physical weakness

  • Blurred vision

  • Lack of motor coordination

  • Poor judgment

  • Memory problems

By seeking professional help for you or your loved one now, you can potentially save a life by avoiding an overdose. Benzodiazepine addiction can also destroy relationships and life opportunities/achievements—by seeking sobriety now, you may have a chance to repair those relationships and start your life over.

Signs of Benzodiazepine Addiction
