How Many Times Can I Go to Detox for Valium Addiction?
If you are one of the three million people with Valium addiction and have already gone to a detox program once before, you may be wondering how many times can you go to detox for Valium addiction.
Don’t Quit Cold Turkey
Trying to quit Valium addiction on your own and without professional detox help can be dangerous – especially if you abruptly stop taking the drug. Valium, like other Benzodiazepines is effective because it slows down the production of GABA or Gamma Amino Butyric Acid in the brain. Long-term Valium use has resulted in the brain adjusting to the drug and when you abruptly stop using Valium is can cause the brain to react. In fact, some people experience intense violent nightmares, convulsions and seizures from quitting Valium cold turkey.
The Purpose of Valium Detox
Even if you have already gone to a professional detox in the past, but relapsed or returned to Valium abuse or addiction, it is best that you go back to a medical detox facility to get help. Medical detox is supervised by doctors and nurses who are trained specifically for helping patients detox from Valium. Medical detox will cleanse the body of the toxins that are a result of Valium use. Although there are no set limits as to how many times you can go to detox for Valium addiction, the detox facility may have a limit to the number of times they will treat the same individual. The truth is that you have to want to stop using Valium. While you may find that government funded detox centers do not mind repeat business, many private detox facilities will not allow multiple visits for the same pattern of substance abuse. If you are using the detox facility as a revolving door to get clean and then return to Valium abuse; the detox facility may cut you off from their services.
After you have completed Valium detox treatment, it is a good idea that you follow-up with an aftercare program. Most medical detox centers recommend a rehab treatment or behavioral therapy program that can help you learn how to have a life that does not include Valium addiction. You may also consider joining a 12-Step or other community based support group to help you in your long-term recovery. Gallus Detox Center can help you overcome Valium addiction.
