Librium Addiction | Find a Librium Detox Center

Librium ® is also known as chlordiazepoxide, and it’s a class IV controlled substance, due to its potential for abuse outside of clinical settings. It’s in a class of benzodiazepines including Valium and Xanax. Librium detox is necessary to get rid of the habit.

All benzodiazepines have a serious risk of addiction, and recreational abuse and misuse. When taken in improper dosage, Librium® and other “benzos” can create feelings of euphoria. Use of these drugs is especially common among people who abuse other drugs like cocaine and heroin, as they can help with the side effects of “coming down” from these drugs.

According to a study published in the National Institute of Health, an overdose of benzodiazepines including Librium® causes more than 8,000 deaths per year. Abusing these drugs, especially in concert with other substances, is incredibly dangerous due to their depressant effect on the nervous system.

When does withdrawal start after stopping use of Librium®?

Typically, most people addicted to benzos take about 24-48 hours to begin experiencing side effects from withdrawal. However, this may be different, depending on whether or not they were using “slow release” medication.

How painful can Librium® withdrawal be?

Withdrawal from benzodiazepines can be extremely painful and uncomfortable. A few of the physical side effects of withdrawal include:

  • Blurry vision and dilated pupils
  • Chest pain
  • Depersonalization
  • Dry mouth
  • Depression
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Insomnia
  • Loss of appetite
  • Paranoia
  • Nightmares and night terrors
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Tinnitus
  • Tremors
  • Increased perspiration

If a user goes “cold turkey”, some other significant side effects like delirium tremens, convulsions, and psychosis should occur – so gradual tapering of drug usage is recommended.

What medications can help treat Librium® withdrawal symptoms?

Valium is often substituted for Librium®, in order to prevent the worst withdrawal symptoms. This is because Valium has a long half-life, and is eliminated from the body slowly, allowing it to adjust to lower levels of benzodiazepines.

Klonopin is sometimes also used, and a number of different medications can be used to help treat significant withdrawal symptoms, if and when they occur.

Can Librium® cause both physical and psychological dependence? 

Yes. Benzodiazepines are extremely psychologically addictive and cause intense cravings in drug users.

In addition, the body becomes adjusted to their physical effects, such as floods of dopamine that are released from the brain, causing a physical addiction.

What is the next step to recovery after Librium detox?Librium Detox center

Continued support at a group such as Narcotics Anonymous is usually recommended, as is continued, regular therapy, and living at a clean living facility to ensure that addiction is not resumed once the patient leaves a treatment center, or completes the at-home recovery process.
