Newport Recovery offers xanax detox in Huntington Beach, Ca,. Benzodiazepines, often called “benzos” for short, are a category of drugs that include an array of prescription substances. The most commonly known of these medications include Xanax (alprazolam), Klonopin (clonazepam), Valium (diazepam), and Ativan (lorazepam).
Similar to alcohol withdrawal, benzodiazepine withdrawal can be life-threatening in someone who is heavily dependent on these drugs that suddenly stops taking them. Our Huntington Beach xanax detox monitors patients who are going through benzodiazepine withdrawal closely. Our highly trained staff can help patients who are struggling with withdrawal symptoms.
Benzodiazepines work similarly to alcohol in the brain, and both are considered sedatives or “downers”. Due to their ability to create a sense of calmness or euphoria, people tend to become addicted to benzos quickly and may struggle with feeling at peace without them.
Benzos and alcohol are very similar in their withdrawal symptoms as well. Although benzodizepines don’t get as much notoriety as opioids, they can be more dangerous to withdrawal from.
The goal of the benzodiazepine detox program at Newsong Recovery is to safely manage the physical changes that occur in the brain and body after repeated benzo use while providing the highest degree of comfort and support.
Without medical supervision, a person suffering from benzodiazepine dependence who suddenly discontinues use on their own can experience extremely serious, life-threatening side-effects. Medical complications of withdrawal from benzodiazepines include problems similar to those seen in alcohol withdrawal, such as:
● Nausea and sweating
● Tension, irritability, anxiety, and panic attacks
● Tremor (shakiness), irregular heart rate, and increased blood pressure
● Poor concentration and impaired memory and judgment
● Headache, muscle pain, and stiffness
● Grand mal seizures
● Delirium, including delirium tremens
Similar as in alcohol withdrawal, seizures and delirium represent the most severe form of benzodiazepine withdrawal. The management of benzodiazepine withdrawal is not recommended without medical supervision.
A team of physicians with more than 35 years of experience using the latest evidence-based approaches to manage the symptoms of withdrawal supervise Newsong Recovery’s xanax detox program.
At Newsong Recovery, your detox will begin with a comprehensive assessment to determine the most effective detox protocols based on your benzo history, medical history, and individual needs.
Our physicians will use safe and effective medications to help eliminate risks and manage the physical symptoms of withdrawal while also improving comfort and stability.
Most of our clients complete xanax detox within three to seven days. However, there is no set time frame for detoxing. For some people, the process will only take hours or days. For others, it may take weeks for someone to dispel a drug from their body completely. To create a successful outcome, Newsong Recovery finely tailors your program to fit your individual, specific needs.
