Benzodiazepine is a class of prescription tranquilizers used to treat acute anxiety or insomnia. The most common brands are Valium, Librium and Xanax. They are also known as Benzos, Tranx, Sleepers, Downers, and Xannies. When used as intended, benzodiazepine is considered to be a safe medication and is often prescribed to be used “as needed” to treat panic attacks or insomnia. It is not used for long-term treatment since other medications are more effective and provide a lower risk of addiction.

Benzodiazepine is dangerous when combined with alcohol or antihistamines. These combinations cause confusion, short-term memory loss and compliant behavior. As a result, use of benzodiazepine as a date rape drug has increased.

Addiction to benzodiazepine is characterized by increased tolerance to the drug’s effects, including changes in the body’s neuroadapters. Often, addicts continue to use benzodiazepine to avoid the symptoms of withdrawal more than to realize the sedative effects of the drug. Abrupt withdrawal from benzodiazepine can be dangerous, causing seizure and delirium tremens. Medical care is required to safely withdraw from the drug.

At Into Action, we are sensitive to the causes of benzodiazepine addiction and the physical consequences of both short-term and long-term use. We understand that an addiction to prescription drugs can be difficult to acknowledge, since many patients can continue to get prescriptions and they believe their use of the drug is therapeutic. Our compassionate staff works with each addict to develop a custom treatment program to provide you with the best opportunity for success. Whether you are entering a treatment program on your own, or as the result of a court order, we understand that your addiction is an illness and work with you to treat that illness.

Our staff is available 24/7 to answer your questions and to begin the admissions process to start you on your recovery. Into Action is located near Houston, Texas and can take admissions from around the country.
