BENZODIAZEPINE ADDICTION INTERVENTION
Your Loved One Can Overcome Cocaine Addiction
Benzodiazepines are a class of drugs that include Xanax, Valium, and Ativan. These types of medications are usually prescribed for those who are experiencing anxiety.
If your loved one has become addicted to prescription benzodiazepines, you must take action. The benzodiazepine detox process can be fatal.
Your loved one needs to get to a safe treatment center where they can fully come off of this medication with medical supervision. Intervention can make that happen.
Signs of Benzodiazepine Addiction
The signs of benzodiazepine addiction can be easy to spot if you know what to look for. These are the signs:
- Slurred Speech
- Constant Loss of Train of Thought While Speaking
- Falling Asleep While Standing
- Acting "Out of it"
Benzos are frequently used in combination with other drugs so there may be additional signs. Users carry high risk of overdose when mixing benzos with other drugs.
Don't Wait to Intervene On Your Loved One's Benzodiazepine Addiction
Studies show that successful recovery is directly related to early intervention and treatment. Families sometimes take a step back from trying to intervene and this is one of the worst things that can possibly happen.
If your loved one is abusing benzodiazepines, then you need to gain an understanding about the disease of addiction. If you understand fully how addiction works you will understand why you can no longer leave your loved one to their own destruction.
Addiction rewires the survival centers of the brain and this is why they feel they must obtain drugs at any costs. Your loved one is not in any place to be making their own decisions - he or she needs intervention.

Many families that call us don't go through with the intervention. Unfortunately, they get scared and overwhelmed with even the thought of it. Sometimes, if the addict finds out that an intervention is being considered, they will step in and promise anything to stop it.
