  • Why is it dangerous to combine benzodiazepines and alcohol?

    Alcohol and benzodiazepines create the same depressive effects, which are heightened. It is a simultaneous depressant effect on the central nervous system. In addition, there is an increased risk of memory impairment, which is far more likely to occur. Withdrawal severity also increases.

  • Are benzodiazepines used to treat alcohol withdrawal?

    Yes, various benzodiazepines are used to reduce the impact of alcohol withdrawal symptoms. However, it is only a temporary use of the drug and is not meant for long-term use after detox. The drugs are used to treat seizures and tremors caused by withdrawal, among other symptoms.

  • Why is quitting benzodiazepines so hard?

    Dependence on the drug occurs quickly and is the main reason people struggle to stop taking the drug. Physical dependence can develop in a matter of weeks, and this can occur at prescribed doses and higher doses. Withdrawal symptoms are also dangerous and include tremors, anxiety, sweating, cognitive impairments, and depression. The lingering effects are also felt long after someone has successfully tapered off the drug. The best way to manage benzo withdrawal is with medical detox.

  • Can I become dependent or addicted to prescription benzodiazepines?

    Yes, there is a significant risk of dependence and addiction. While prescription benzodiazepines are commonly given, the user should know the risks. Many individuals have a history of addiction and become easily addicted to prescription benzodiazepines.

  • What is the best rehabilitation process for benzo addiction?

    The best way to treat benzo addiction begins with medical detox to address withdrawal symptoms. Following medical detox, the next step should involve long-term residential drug rehab that provides holistic treatment and behavioral therapies. In addition, adequate aftercare support is critical to make the transition back to society.
