Benzodiazepine Addiction Rehab in New Jersey – Rubicon Recovery

Benzodiazepines have increasingly become a focal point of public health concerns due to rising rates of misuse and addiction. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, there has been a significant increase in the non-medical use of benzodiazepines, particularly among young adults. Studies show that benzodiazepines were involved in approximately 30% of prescription drug overdose deaths in the United States in recent years, underscoring the critical need for increased awareness and tighter controls on the prescription and use of these potent medications.

What Is Benzodiazepine Addiction?

Benzodiazepine addiction is when someone develops physical and psychological dependence on benzodiazepines, prescription psychoactive drugs that are typically prescribed for anxiety, insomnia, seizures, and muscle spasms. It works by enhancing the effects of a neurotransmitter called GABA in the brain, which results in a calming or sedative effect. Some commonly known benzodiazepine drugs include Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan, and Valium. 

Benzodiazepines are addictive, though an addiction is more likely to develop after prolonged use. An addiction can develop even when the medication is prescribed by a doctor and taken as directed. However, the risk of addiction increases significantly with misuse, such as taking higher doses than prescribed, using the medication without a prescription, or using it in a way not intended, such as crushing and snorting the pills.

Individuals addicted to benzodiazepines  find it difficult to function normally without the drug and may prioritize its use over other aspects of their lives. They may continue using benzodiazepines despite experiencing negative consequences to their health, relationships, and daily functioning. Some general signs of addiction include drug cravings, withdrawal symptoms upon cessation, and an inability to control or reduce use.

Overcoming benzodiazepine addiction often requires professional treatment, including detoxification, therapy, and support groups, to address both the physical dependence and the psychological aspects of the addiction. It’s helpful to understand more about how to treat a benzodiazepine addiction and what challenges may come up on the road to recovery so that you can get yourself or a loved one the help they need to heal.

Who Needs Rehab For Benzodiazepine Addiction?

The outpatient addiction rehab at Rubicon Recovery Center is designed for any individual who finds themselves unable to stop using benzodiazepines despite experiencing negative consequences such as significant harm to their health, relationships, and day to day well being. We welcome people from all backgrounds who are struggling with benzodiazepine  addiction, no matter their prior history of drug use, overdose, or previous attempts at recovery. 

A benzodiazepine addiction can look different for different people, but you may need to attend a rehab program if you are experiencing any of the following behaviors: 

  • Withdrawal Symptoms:  The presence of withdrawal symptoms signifies that an individual has developed a physical dependence on a drug, which is a key component of addiction. Some Benzodiazepine withdrawal symptoms include nausea, seizures, panic attacks, and insomnia.
  • Change in Social Circles: A subtle yet telling sign of drug addiction is a significant change in an individual’s social circles. Someone might withdraw from long-standing relationships and instead spend time with new friends who share and enable their drug use habits. Losing interest in social activities or hobbies that don’t involve drug use is also related to this sign.
  • Neglecting Responsibilities: A hallmark sign of addiction is when an individual starts to neglect responsibilities at home, work, or school. Financial problems may also arise, often due to spending money on drugs rather than on bills, food, or other essentials. 
  • Decline in Wellbeing: A benzodiazepine addiction can lead to noticeable declines in physical health and appearance. Some tell-tale signs may include sudden weight loss or gain, poor skin condition, and neglect of personal hygiene. Sleep patterns may also be disrupted, leading to insomnia or excessive sleeping.
