Benzodiazepine, Sleeping Pill, and Antidepressant Recovery Experts
Recovery Is Possible
Too many come to Point of Return off their medication and in a state of high anxiety, filled with uncertainty of how to heal. Whether you tapered rapidly or went cold-turkey, our nonprofit can help you.
Protracted withdrawal is also referred to as post-acute withdrawal syndrome -- a cluster of symptoms or persistent impairments that occur after a rapid withdrawal from Benzodiazepines, Sleeping Pills, Alcohol and Opiates. Some Antidepressant users also complain of Protracted Symptoms after reducing or stopping their medication too abruptly.
Protracted withdrawal symptoms may adversely affect every aspect of daily life and cause symptoms ranging from tremors, weakness, insomnia, nausea, vomiting, anxiety, depression, gastrointestinal issues, neuropathy pain, electrical ‘zap’ feelings in the brain, cognitive cloudiness, depersonalization, transient hallucinations or illusions, and many others. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and generally persist for 2 -12 months. A minority of people may experience symptoms for years.
Every chemical works in the body by attaching to receptors. As opioids attach to the opioid receptors, benzodiazepines and sleeping pills attach to the GABAa receptors while antidepressants attach primarily to serotonin but can also affect norepinephrine. This is the reason many people have long-lasting pain coming off a painkiller and also why there can be long-term effects from the protracted use of antidepressants, benzodiazepines and sleeping pills.
Regardless of the addictive drug ingested and rapidly withdrawn, protracted withdrawal symptoms can occur. Healing from protracted withdrawal does not just include the elimination of the drug from the body, but also involves the repair and healing of the neurotransmitters.
Healthy nutrition, hydration, proper supplementation, exercise and sleep can dramatically shorten the time for healing and recovery. Drug-induced nutrient deficiencies are not the only source of people’s medical problems, but they can certainly compound symptoms.
If you are concerned about protracted symptoms, the Point of Return program can be a valuable ally. We use specialized food-based Nutraceuticals to help ease the lingering symptoms. Whole food supplements are absorbed more readily than synthetic vitamins, so energy is not wasted on digesting and processing supplements when it is needed for repair and regeneration.
