Benzodiazepines such as Xanax and Valium have long been prescribed for substance abuse withdrawal, insomnia and anxiety. Unfortunately, these drugs also have a high potential for abuse. They are both physically and psychologically addictive, and a dependent person will experience withdrawal symptoms, similar to alcohol withdrawal, if they stop taking them suddenly.
- Muscle and Joint Pain
- Stomach pain
- Abnormal sensitivity to light and noise
A common occurrence with benzodiazepine detox is seizures. For this reason, detoxification from benzodiazepines should be performed only under the supervision of a medical professional. At SOBA Recovery Center Detox, we use a detox protocol for benzodiazepines that is proven to keep clients safe and comfortable during the detoxification process.
