Learn More About Benzos

Introduction to Benzos

Medications are essential for many people throughout their daily lives. They relieve pain, treat problems in our bodies, and help us manage our mental health. Most of us need these medications to be able to go out and do the things we love to do and improve our quality of life, otherwise, we might wind up sick or unable to live a decent life. Whether we know it or not, though, many of the drugs a doctor prescribes to treat a problem we have are also addictive. 

Thankfully, certain drugs are tightly controlled, and our doctors will try their best to ensure that we do not become addicted. Many times this means changing a person’s medication after some time so that they do not have to take too high a dosage or need more of the drug than is recommended for it to work. This is the case for most patients that are on drugs to treat mental illness. These drugs are desperately needed to help people control the symptoms of their mental illness, but taking them too long can lead to addiction. 

At Atlanta Recovery Place, we understand that needing a particular medication and not wanting to become addicted to it can be a real problem. Though doctors try their best to control these situations, they cannot account for everything. If you find yourself addicted, you are not without hope. It is still possible to get treatment for your addiction and control your mental health concerns with the right treatment program. 

Atlanta Recovery Place is a Georgia addiction recovery center that can help you overcome addiction today. Contact us today to learn more about our Atlanta addiction treatment programs.

What Are Benzos?

Benzos are a type of drug otherwise known as benzodiazepines. Benzodiazepines are prescribed by doctors primarily to treat different types of mental illness, such as panic disorders, anxiety, and depression. In some cases, they may be used as part of a combination of medications to treat seizures and other disorders. 

They are typically prescribed in limited doses for a short period to help with mental health. Patients needing long-term treatment are given a different drug every few months to prevent dependency and keep the body from becoming too used to the substance a person is taking.

Which Drugs Are Benzos?

There is a wide range of benzos out there, including name-brand and generic drugs. However, four of the most popular and widely prescribed benzos are Valium, Xanax, Ativan, and Klonopin. These drugs each help with mental health issues, help to alter mood and work with the body chemistry to limit episodes of anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. 

The four we have listed are the ones that have been shown to have a great effect and are the most likely to be prescribed and used by patients. Even though benzos are tightly controlled, there are still a large number of people taking them in the United States. 

Getting help with a benzo addiction when you have a mental illness can be frustrating. You don’t need to worry, though; Atlanta Recovery Place has the treatment programs necessary to handle a benzo addiction while also getting you the help you need with your mental health issue.

Are Benzos Addictive?

Unfortunately for anyone taking them, benzos are highly addictive. What makes the situation worse is that even people who take their benzos just as directed are still at risk of becoming addicted if they take the same drug for an extended period. This is why doctors will typically change a person’s medicine after a few months to limit the risk of addiction

Some patients need continuous treatment with some type of benzo, which increases the likelihood of becoming addicted even without intending to. This is because the drugs work primarily by altering the chemistry of the brain. Over time the brain gets used to having the drug in the body and needs it to function normally. When this happens, a person has become completely addicted. 

At Atlanta Recovery Place, we understand that every addiction is unique; thus, it takes a unique approach to treatment to get our clients clean and sober. We have a dedicated and knowledgeable staff that is ready to help you be free of your addiction.

The Symptoms

What Are the Symptoms of Benzo Abuse?

If someone you know is abusing benzos, you’ll want to know what to look for to get them help. 

People who are taking benzos more than prescribed may experience symptoms such as intense cravings, anxiety, paranoia, and mood swings. They will likely engage in drug-seeking behavior if their addiction has gone beyond what they are prescribed. They may become secretive as they focus more on using the drug rather than on their day-to-day responsibilities. 

The most noticeable sign that someone is abusing benzos is if they become uninterested in things they used to enjoy and stop caring about friends and loved ones in favor of the drugs. It’s important to remember that the physical and emotional side effects will differ based on what benzo they are abusing. Knowing what drug your loved one is using will allow you to tell what symptoms to look out for that specific drug. 

Atlanta Recovery Place has a treatment program specifically for benzos where we will develop a solution based on your or your loved one’s individual needs. We don’t use basic treatments, only customized plans for each individual client.

How to Treatment Benzo Addiction

Benzo addiction can be treated in many different ways depending on the person in treatment. The first step is usually detox, getting whatever benzo they are addicted to out of their system and handling the withdrawal process. 

From there, starting them on new medication may be necessary to manage their mental health or to assist with the recovery process before beginning the treatment phase. Treatment can take a wide range of forms, from talk therapy and group counseling to yoga and meditation. 

The final part of the process is support and aftercare. Aftercare involves the support systems that are available once treatment ends, such as halfway houses and 12-step programs. 

At Atlanta Recovery Place, we will work with you throughout your recovery journey from the first steps of detox, to aftercare and beyond. Don’t go it alone with your addiction, contact us today.
