It can be not easy to reach out for help, even if things are out of control. However, seeking treatment at a benzo addiction center is the bravest thing you will ever do, and it could even save your life. You may have many questions about benzo abuse treatment, especially if you are starting your recovery journey. It can be reassuring and empowering to learn more about what to expect in benzodiazepine rehab and how treatment at our benzodiazepine detox center can help you regain control of your life.
Step One: Evaluation and Treatment Plan
When you arrive at the treatment center, you will meet with care staff. They will ask questions about your background and your reasons for seeking treatment. They may also ask medical questions. This will help the staff develop an individualized treatment plan that will be tailored to your specific needs and circumstances. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ plan for helping someone struggling with benzo addiction, so it is important to choose a treatment program that cares for your situation.
Step Two: Detox and Withdrawal Management
You may already be experiencing early symptoms of benzodiazepine withdrawal. Medical staff treating you will be experienced in dealing with benzo abuse treatment and know how best to help you withdraw from benzos as comfortably and safely as possible. It is important to seek professional help when attempting to stop using benzos because there is a slight possibility of experiencing a serious seizure. Clients at a treatment center will be monitored around the clock to ensure that they are safe and healthy at all times.
Step Three: Individual Counseling and Group Therapy
Even though detoxing from benzos is a very important part of healing from addiction, and even more important part is addressing the root causes of addiction in your life. At a benzodiazepine addiction treatment center, this is accomplished by attending individual and group therapy sessions.
Some types of therapy that may also be offered are:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
- Family therapy
- Art, music, and nature therapy
- Life Skills Development Classes
- Wellness activities such as yoga, meditation, or massage therapy
Step Four: Aftercare and Return to Community Life
After you have completed the inpatient part of a benzo addiction treatment program, you will most likely be transitioned to an outpatient program that is still intensive but allows you to return to your home in the evenings. You may still be checking in frequently with medical caregivers for medication management, and you will also still be attending therapy and meetings. This part of the process is meant to help you maintain your recovery by staying in close contact with a strong support network.
Once you have graduated from the outpatient program, you may still benefit from attending therapy and peer support group meetings. You may transition away from intensive treatment, but you will have learned skills to help you avoid relapse, including building a strong support system of peers, loved ones, and therapeutic professionals.
