Gallus Detox Offers the Safest Possible Benzodiazepine Detox

Benzodiazepines are prescription tranquilizers and sedatives such as Valium, Ativan, Xanax, and Klonopin – used to treat anxiety and sleep disorders. Benzodiazepines are one of the most abused types of prescription drugs. How do you know which is the best method for Benzodiazepine detox?

Stopping Benzodiazepines on Your Own?

Stopping Benzodiazepine medications on your own is never advised. Benzodiazepines alter the brain’s chemistry by decreasing GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) which causes things to slow down. If you have had long-term Benzodiazepine use, stopping suddenly can cause too dramatic a change in brain activity, leading to serious side effects including nightmares, delusions, convulsions, and seizures.

Inpatient Benzodiazepine Detox

An inpatient addiction detox program is the best solution for Benzodiazepine detox because it will provide medical supervision during the process and also allow you the time you need to rest while the drugs are removed from your body.

The most common withdrawal side effects include:

  • Constipation/diarrhea
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Severe migraine headaches
  • Intense anxiety/irritability

All inpatient medical detox programs are not the same. The majority of inpatient medical detox centers use traditional oral medications that take a bit longer to take effect in the body. That means that the patient will have to endure withdrawal side effects until the oral medication is active.

One of the most effective methods for Benzodiazepine detox is intravenous (IV) therapy medical detox. IV therapy medical detox allows immediate relief from withdrawal symptoms because the medication used in Benzodiazepine detox enters through the IV port and is placed directly into the bloodstream.

IV therapy is the best method for Benzodiazepine detox because it controls withdrawal, keeps patients comfortable and allows them to successfully complete the detox process.

Following up with an aftercare program once you have successfully completed Benzodiazepine detox is highly recommended.
