Discover What Makes Paint Desert Recovery Unique

/Perhaps you have a prescription for benzos to help treat severe anxiety, panic disorders, insomnia, or acute alcohol withdrawal symptoms. It is estimated that nearly one in twenty American adults use prescription benzodiazepines. However, rates of use are likely to be much higher when including those who misuse benzos to self-medicate.

When women who are addicted to benzos try to stop using them, withdrawal symptoms can emerge. These withdrawal symptoms can include nightmares, difficulty concentrating, memory issues, muscle spasms, or insomnia. Without the help of professionals, withdrawing from benzos can be painful. Also, if the chemicals that make up the benzos are not eliminated from the system, the chances for relapse rise dramatically.

Painted Desert Recovery is ready to help. We have the staff and the resources to help women stop their addiction to benzos. The first step, however, is identifying if you have an addiction to benzos.

Signs of Benzo Addiction

Benzodiazepines, commonly referred to as “benzos,” are a type of sedative. They are usually a short-term treatment given for two to four weeks. Although benzos can be effective when used properly, unfortunately, benzo use can quickly change into a benzo addiction.

Examples of benzos are:

  • Diazepam (Valium)
  • Oxazepam (Alepam, Serepax)
  • Nitrazepam (Alodorm, Mogadon)
  • Temazepam (Euhypnos, Normison)
  • Alprazolam (Xanax, Alprax)
  • Clonazepam (Klonopin)

Some of the common behavior that indicates a potential benzo addiction include:

  • Social withdrawal
  • Isolating from family and friends
  • No longer participating in formerly-enjoyable activities
  • Failing to meet work or school obligations
  • Forging prescriptions or engaging in other illegal activities
  • Visiting multiple doctors to obtain multiple prescriptions, also known as “doctor shopping”

Physical signs of a benzo addiction are:

  • Muscle weakness
  • Drowsiness, also known as “nodding off”
  • Blurred vision
  • Headaches
  • Fainting
  • Light-headedness

If, after reviewing these signs, you feel that you may have an addiction to benzos, there is an opportunity for change. A benzo addiction treatment center such as Painted Desert Recovery can give you the encouragement and resources that you need to end a benzo addiction.
