Our clients never intended to become dependent on Benzodiazepines. Many were trying to alleviate sleeplessness or anxiety and did not realize how quickly the drug could take hold.
Addiction to Benzodiazepines can be excruciating since both work on GABA, the most prevalent calming neurotransmitter in the human body. As GABA becomes modified from the drug, dependence and tolerance can occur. The alteration of GABA can have a profound impact on nearly every aspect of life as the critical calming is replaced by over excitation.
Extreme anxiety and insomnia are common symptoms once tolerance to the drug occurs, and this worsens if the withdrawal process is too rapid.
Many people become dependent using small dosages for short periods of time, while others can take Benzodiazepines for years before tolerance hits. Regardless of the dosage it is important to taper slowly.
Benzodiazepines are highly addictive and dangerous to abruptly stop. A slow withdrawal is important but relief from the debilitating withdrawal symptoms is essential for success.
