Benzo Treatment Program
Benzodiazepines are a class of legal but controlled drugs used mostly by psychiatrists to treat anxiety-related disorders. Although the drug has been approved for medical use, doctors are now becoming more and more reluctant in prescribing the drug to their patients as the drug’s side effects often out-weigh the benefits. Over the years, a lot of patients have shown symptoms of the drug’s rebound effect which is cause for more serious concern. Some of the side effects of benzos include:
- Body aches
Aside from those, there are noted effects which affect a person’s social responses like being irritable and demonstrating inappropriate responses which can cause awkward moments. Another problem with Benzodiazepines is that they are highly addictive, and a lot of the patients who use this drug become dependent after some time. The longer a person uses benzos, the more her body develops tolerance from the drug. This triggers the need for an increased dosage, thus dragging the patient into addiction.
Christian benzo treatment begins with getting rid of the substance from the patient’s system. However, depending on the brand and dosage, some benzo patients require more time to recover than others. The hardest part for the patient is when the Benzo withdrawal treatment begins as this is the time when the withdrawal symptoms are at their peak. In just a few days, however, as the body cleanses itself from the residue left by the drug, these symptoms will gradually subside and disappear.
One of the worst things this drug can do to a patient is that it can ruin a person’s social and professional life. It can cause sleepless nights, anxiety attacks and anti-social behaviors. New Creation Christian benzo withdrawal treatment centers offer patients the chance to get their life back on track. By suppressing the symptoms and getting rid of the drug dependency, the patient can have his life back.
The treatment of benzo withdrawal requires a gradual tapering of the drug in-take. Doctors carefully adjust the intake of benzodiazepine so that very minimal withdrawal symptoms are exhibited by the patient. This also includes detoxification processes that may be prescribed in order to speed up the recovery process. Along with this, psychiatric support may also be recommended as withdrawal symptoms spike up as soon as treatment begins. One of the proven techniques which can alleviate the withdrawal stage is through faith-based meditation and prayer.
Although detoxification and ridding the system of the drug is very important, it certainly will take some time and withdrawal symptoms will be persistent. During these times it is important that the patient grabs hold of him/herself and push through with the benzo treatment.
More than the doctors, each patient is the key to her own recovery. The more that the patient wants to get their life back, the greater chance of the procedure being a success.
