If you are struggling with Valium use and have tried to quit on your own but without success, you may want to know: how do I find the right Valium detox.
What is Valium Detox?
Valium detox will eliminate the toxins from the body that have accumulated as a result of Benzodiazepine abuse. Benzodiazepines are a class of drugs that include medications for anxiety and sleep disorders as well as sedatives. Valium may be prescribed for anxiety, depression and it has also been used to treat alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Valium works by altering brain chemistry, specifically the Gamma Amino Butyric Acid or GABA receptors by reducing production and slowing activity. Valium was not meant to be taken for long periods of time and trying to stop long-term Valium use can prove to be a challenge especially if the individual suddenly stops taking the medication.
Withdrawal symptoms may appear within a few hours of the last time the drug was used and depending on the severity of Valium use may range in intensity from mild to painful. The common side effects of Valium withdrawal include:
- Disturbing nightmares
Most physicians recommend seeking an inpatient medical detox to stop Valium use.
What is the Right Inpatient Valium Detox?
Inpatient Valium detox is available through a hospital program or private detox facility. Most hospital Valium detox programs use oral medications that are not the very effective at controlling painful withdrawal symptoms which results in patients being uncomfortable and more likely to leave the detox program before it is complete. Studies show that when patients leave detox early, they will, most of the time, return to their Valium use. An alternative to hospital detox is a private facility that offers IV therapy medical detox for Valium abuse or addiction. There are a number of reasons why IV therapy medical detox is the right Valium detox. IV therapy is immediate. Whereas in other detox processes that use oral medications that take the body time to breakdown and absorb; IV therapy incorporates medications that are injected through the port and delivered directly into the blood stream. The effect is immediate relief from withdrawal symptoms. The result is that patients remain comfortable throughout the detox process and are able to successfully complete it. The chance for a successful recovery is increased when detox is achieved. The right Valium detox will also provide around the clock care, and the facility should be accredited with fully licensed physicians, nurses and staff, including counselors that can help you work through your reasons for using Valium. Finally, the right Valium detox will be invested in your long-term recovery success and will encourage you to follow-up detox with rehab, behavioral therapy or participation in a community support group. Recovery does not end with detox, but is a process. Do you need help finding the right Valium detox?
