Benzo Detoxes In California
Among the various drugs, depressants for CNS (Central nervous system) include Benzodiazepines such as Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan, and Valium. These drugs are often administered as pain-relievers by skilled practitioners for insomnia, seizures, anxiety, and panic-related disorders for a short duration under constant assistance. However, in recent times, benzodiazepines are rampantly used as recreational indulgences, due to their mind-altering the property, which can further develop into abuse/addiction.

A Prescribed Problem
High-Quality Benzo Detoxes In California
In the United States, Benzodiazepines (which include Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan, and Valium) are commonly consumed by millions as a prescription pain-relief medication. When consumed in limited quantities, the Benzo-user will not become an addict. But, when the drug user develops a tolerance and physical dependence for the same it is known as addiction. Statistics indicate that Benzo-related addiction is becoming a rising concern as there has been a substantial surge in the abuse of this prescription pill from 1996 to 2013 by 67%. From 8.1 million benzo-addicts in 1996 the number has risen to 13.5 million addicts by 2013. Further, another concern is the sudden surge in co-prescribing benzodiazepines and opioids between 2001 and 2013. It is alarming to note that, the chances of benzo-overdose have surged by 400 % owing to its easily available nature and its adaptability with substances such as alcohol or opiates for indulgences.
Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Symptoms
The withdrawal symptoms too (which include physical and psychological) include chronic pain, are mild in the early stages, and become severe in the later stages. The intensity is individual-specific and is proportional to the frequency, quantity, and duration of abuse. One also has to factor in if it is long-acting or short-acting Benzos. Someone who has indulged in Benzo abuse for a few months will undergo lesser withdrawal symptoms than someone who has been indulging in it for years.
Also, the withdrawal symptoms for short-acting Benzos are quicker and more intense than for long-acting Benzos. The onset of withdrawal symptoms, in the case of the former, can start within hours of last abuse, and for the latter, it can take more than 24 hours. Crippling anxiety, mild perspiration, intense drug cravings, crawling skin sensation, muscle spasms, restlessness, irrational thoughts are some of the primary withdrawal symptoms in the easy stages. In due time, the secondary symptoms will set in and they include goosebumps and cold sweats, diarrhea and vomiting, watering eyes, headache, abdominal/muscle/joint pain, restlessness, and crippling anxiety. In some cases, the symptoms can prove fatal too. So, Gravity Treatment Centers strongly recommends you seek professional help for detox.
