Finding the Treatment You Need.

prescription drug addiction

Individuals who frequently take benzodiazepines can develop a substance addiction without even knowing it. Drugs that fall under the benzodiazepine – otherwise known as “benzos” – category include (but are not limited to):

  • Xanax, or alprazolam (a prescription drug meant to treat various panic disorders and anxiety)
  • Valium, or diazepam (a prescription drug used to treat anxiety, alcohol withdrawal, and seizures)
  • Ativan, or lorazepam (a prescription drug used to treat anxiety)
  • Librium, or chlordiazepoxide (a prescription drug used to treat tremors and acute alcohol withdrawal symptoms)
  • Halcion, or triazolam (a prescription drug used to treat insomnia)

What’s more, benzo addictions are similar to alcohol addictions in that immediate withdrawal can sometimes shock the body to the point where the user dies. Because of this, it is essential to let a team of professionals determine the type of treatment you need after deciding you have developed a benzo drug addiction.

Addictions to benzo drugs like Xanax, Valium, Ativan, Librium, and Halcion can come with dangerous side effects, including:

  • Memory loss and forgetfulness
  • Damaged brain cells
  • Severe depression
  • A loss in appetite
  • Mood swings
  • Aggressive, and even violent, behavior
  • Seizures
  • Death

The Mountainview Recovery Plan.

After an over-the-phone screening with our admissions department, our team of trained professionals will discern whether you are eligible for treatment with Mountainview Recovery, or if you’d be better served in an outside detox program first.

Once you enter Mountainview Recovery, you will take part in various rehabilitation sessions – both in group and one-on-one settings – to maximize the healing abilities of your body and mind. We also use a controlled substance, suboxone, to ease the symptoms of withdrawal for eligible patients struggling through the withdrawal process.
