The Most-Commonly Abused Prescription Medication Worldwide
A group of prescription sedatives known as benzodiazepines (benzos) are extremely effective when used in the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and other sleep-related conditions. While they are ideal for their intended use, this group of drugs is also highly addictive and subject to widespread abuse. In particular, the mixture of benzos with alcohol elicits a more powerful effect of both substances and makes this drug likely to be abused leading to the user needing a safe benzo detox.
Brand names that are most common in this class of drugs include Klonopin, Xanax, Valium, and Ativan. While the United States is struggling with the widespread opioid epidemic, Xanax is the most-abused prescription drug worldwide. As such, the number of people that are in need of safe and thorough benzo detoxification continues to grow, and we are proud to offer a safe medical benzo detox option for those that need it.
What is a Medical Benzo Detox?
When a patient chooses a professional benzo detox, there are obvious advantages that can help the individual complete the process safely and effectively. First of all, a medical detox is intended to offer patients a safe and sterile environment with medical assistance available to help treat the symptoms of withdrawal.
Furthermore, should a medical emergency develop as a result of the benzodiazepine detox, the trained medical professionals can intervene. You don’t have to suffer the effects of benzo withdrawal alone at home hiding in a bedroom somewhere.

What Does Benzo Withdrawal Look Like?
Each patient’s severity and duration of symptoms will vary depending on the length and amount of benzo abuse. Removing the benzodiazepine-related chemicals from a patient’s body who is physically addicted to one of these medications, can result in a variety of side effects, including:
- Dilated pupils
- Blurred vision
- GI distress (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea)
- Difficulty breathing
- Mild to severe pain
- Elevated blood pressure
- Mood swings
Quit for Good with Holistic Rehab Therapies
A thorough drug detoxification is needed to rid the body of all benzo-related chemicals, before you start drug addiction rehab. After the medical detox is complete, you can participate in holistic rehab therapies at All About Recovery.
We offer patients a treatment program that incorporates the use of creative therapies, such as art, music, dancing, photography and videography. Non-verbal expression of inner issues which may trigger drug abuse, can help people work through trauma and thoughts or feelings that relate to their substance abuse disorder.
