Physical dependence causing benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms is a frequent complication for patients who are prescribed or are using the drugs for 2 months or more, but drug seeking behavior can also develop as dosages increase. Once an individual ceases to take benzos, withdrawal symptoms begin to occur almost immediately and can last days to weeks.
Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Symptoms:
- sleep issues
- shakes or tremors
- high blood pressure
Benzodiazepine withdrawal have been associated with suicide and self-harming behaviors, especially in young people. The appearance of these symptoms causes patients to continue to use the drugs longer than originally intended and further increase their dependence.
Our Benzodiazepine detox treatment program is typically 90 days from start to finish. The 90-day treatment program generally requires a total of 10 to 12 office visits.
