Our addiction specialists provide a safe and comfortable setting while individuals take their steps in recovery. With our detox programs, our clients will work with our clinical team to design the best treatment plan for them. Alongside offering benzodiazepine detox services, we also provide at-home detox services for cocaine addiction, opioid addiction, alcohol addiction, and more.

Benzodiazepine Addiction

Benzodiazepines, also known as benzos, are a class of psychoactive prescription drugs that are commonly used to treat anxiety disorder, insomnia, and other mental health conditions due to their calming and sedative effects. Benzodiazepine addiction, or benzodiazepine use disorder, is a severe and complex medical condition that involves a compulsive pattern of misusing benzodiazepine medications despite the negative consequences.

While benzodiazepines can provide effective short-term relief for certain mental conditions, they are associated with a significant risk of tolerance, dependence, and addiction when used for an extended period or not taken as prescribed. The addiction process involves both physical and psychological effects, making it challenging to overcome without proper medical intervention and support. MD Home Detox works with our clients to address the underlying causes of benzodiazepine addiction and provide the treatment needed to begin recovering from their addiction.

Most Commonly Abused Benzodiazepines

Benzodiazepines have a wide range of medical uses and encompass various medications. Some of the most common types of benzos include:

  • Alprazolam (Xanax): Alprazolam is often prescribed for treating generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and panic disorder. It has a relatively short onset of action, which makes it suitable for managing acute anxiety symptoms. However, due to its potential for dependence and misuse, it is recommended for short-term use.
  • Lorazepam (Ativan): Lorazepam is used to treat anxiety disorders and is also administered as a pre-anesthetic medication to relax patients before surgery. It has a longer duration of action compared to some other benzodiazepines.
  • Diazepam (Valium): Diazepam is known for its versatile applications, including treating anxiety, muscle spasms, and seizures. It has a longer half-life, which allows for less frequent dosing. Additionally, it can be used to manage alcohol withdrawal symptoms and muscle spasticity.
  • Clonazepam (Klonopin): Clonazepam is prescribed for various seizure disorders, panic disorders, and movement disorders like restless legs syndrome. It has a longer duration of action and is generally taken less frequently throughout the day.

Benzodiazepine Withdrawal

Benzodiazepine withdrawal refers to the stage in addiction recovery when physical and psychological symptoms occur after individuals stop using benzos. These symptoms can vary depending on various factors, such as the specific benzo taken, the dosage, duration of use, and the individual’s body composition. These withdrawal symptoms may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Muscle pain
  • Depression
  • Seizures

Due to the potentially life-threatening symptoms of withdrawal, benzo withdrawal should be closely monitored under medical supervision. During this withdrawal process, medical professionals may taper the benzo dosage over a significant length of time to minimize the intensity of withdrawal. This allows the body to gradually become adjusted to daily functioning without the drug.

Benefits of Benzodiazepine Detox

Benzodiazepine detox is a process focused on providing a safe and effective way to discontinue benzo use with the help of medical professionals. While the primary benefit of benzodiazepine detox is recovering from drug addiction and navigating dangerous withdrawal symptoms, there are many other benefits to detoxing from benzos.

Clients will learn about their specific needs: The benzodiazepine detox program at MD Home Detox is designed to educate clients about benzodiazepines, withdrawal, and recovery to ensure informed health decisions are made. Our programs are personalized to address personal goals, medical history, and substance abuse concerns.

Our detox programs benefit our clients by building the foundation of a successful recovery. We assist our clients in transitioning from detox to treatment centers that provide behavioral health therapies and broader addiction treatment services. By successfully completing benzodiazepine detox, individuals will improve their physical and mental health, gain clarity of their addiction, and restore emotional stability without the need for benzos.

Our Medical Detox Services

With MD Home Detox, our emphasis lies on ensuring your comfort throughout the detox journey by bringing the detoxification process to the familiarity of your own home. We offer our clients three distinct medical detox services: at-home detox treatment, home IV detox therapy, and rapid detox treatment.

  • At-Home Detox Treatment: These at-home detox services are our main treatment options. This treatment is geared toward minimizing the uncertainty that comes with detoxing in a treatment facility. Our clinical team maintains a watchful eye over your detox process, adjusting the treatment as needed and understanding the unique needs of our clients. This understanding serves as the foundation for creating a personalized treatment plan to suit every situation.
  • Home IV Detox Therapy: Our IV detox therapy utilizes NAD, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, therapy services to give clients essential nutrients, amino acids, hydration, and medication-assisted treatment. These aid in helping the body adjust to not having the substance in our body and can counteract some withdrawal symptoms. As substance abuse can damage many aspects of our body and mind, it’s important to find healing and treatment options to restore our health.
  • Rapid Detox Treatment: Our rapid detox approach is meticulously designed to efficiently remove prescription drugs from your system, ensuring a swift and comfortable detox experience. This method involves the administration of medications while you are sedated or placed under general anesthesia. Typically spanning about four days, this procedure stands as an excellent choice for individuals seeking to rapidly eliminate drugs from their system and alleviate the severity of withdrawal symptoms.

On top of these detox services, MD Home Detox provides other beneficial treatment programs and services. These services include private nurse services, professional interventions, drug testing, aftercare planning services, and sober companions.
