Treatment for Valium Abuse at Casa Capri

Going to Drug Rehab for a Valium Abuse Problem

Valium abuse can often be a result of its common use to treat anxiety and panic attacks. It is a depressant drug that works towards slowing down the brain’s activity, thus reducing anxiety and other similar issues. While Valium can be highly effective in treating a variety of mental conditions, a lot of patients steer away from the doctor’s recommended dosage and begin abusing the drug. That happens because Valium can create intense feelings of euphoria and relaxation, promoting patients to increase their dosage to prolong these effects. Because users can become extremely addicted to it, Valium is one of the most commonly abused medications in the sedative category.

According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, its widespread availability has also influenced the Valium addiction rates. So much so that Valium was the fourth most-prescribed benzodiazepine in 2011. While doctors are now more cautious when prescribing the drug, the problem is still prevalent to this day.

valium abuseWhat Does a Detox Program Consist of?

Due to the severe withdrawal symptoms of Valium detox, patients that want to flush the drug out of their bodies must enroll in a specialized facility where physicians will supervise their condition every step of the way.

Patients can choose from several types of programs:

  • Inpatient treatment programs such as detox centers that require residence during the rehabilitation process. These programs will use several therapeutic methods to target the mental issues the patient is struggling with, as well as the medical components of withdrawal.
  • Outpatient treatment programs, where the patient can continue living at home and carrying out their daily activities. These treatment options require patients to make several visits to the clinic for counseling and therapies.
  • 12-step programs, which are ideal those who have already finished their detox process.

What Therapy Options Are Successful in Treating Valium Abuse?

Valium abuse comes with its unique challenges. Patients who follow a more rounded treatment plan that caters to all their needs (physical, mental, and emotional) have a higher success rate than those who only go through medical withdrawal.

Once the patient has completed the detox process, and the drug is no longer in their system, several therapy options are available:

  • Individual Therapy – The patient focuses on their psychological state and addresses any mental issues they have;
  • Group or Family Therapy – Patients work on their issues in a group. That allows individuals to improve their relationship and social skills;
  • Coping Strategies – The patient learns valuable tools to apply in their daily lives, such as how to cope with cravings, or how to repair relationships;
  • Other Therapy Methods –Clinics will offer a variety of activities that can help with a patient’s emotional state, such as outdoor activities, meditation, yoga, or even arts and crafts classes. These methods can also be used to help a patient cope with the detox process.

How Do I Know If I Need Inpatient or Outpatient Program for Valium Abuse?

Inpatient programs require full residence during treatment. Patients with a more severe condition, as well as co-occurring disorders will typically seek inpatient treatments for their recovery.

However, patients who cannot afford taking up residence in such a facility for valium abuse will opt for outpatient treatment. Single parents, caregivers, or other individuals who cannot disengage with day-to-day lives for their treatment can follow such recovery plans that require them to make weekly visits to the facility and not a 24/7 residence.

How Long Are Drug Treatment Programs?

The period of treatment is established based on a patient’s case. However, NIDA suggests that extensive treatment plans have a higher success rate than short-term ones. Patients under treatment for more than 90 days show better chances of improvement and are more capable of handling cravings.

How Do Treatment Centers Address Co-Occurring Disorders?

Rehabilitation centers have a team of specialized medical professionals trained not only in addressing valium abuse, but also a patient’s mental state and co-occurring disorders. They will assess the patient’s condition once they’ve entered the clinic and set up a course of action in accordance with the individual’s needs.

What Should I Do after I Leave a Treatment Center?

Patients that finish a treatment plan within a center will often join a support group or a 12-step program to continue their path towards full rehabilitation. These groups can help the patient reintegrate back into society.

In some cases, the medical staff at the rehab center may ask the patient to continue coming to sessions even after they’ve been discharged.

Getting Better

Valium withdrawal can be extremely strenuous for people, and it is best to do it under the supervision of medical staff. Rehab centers offer prime care for their patients with excellent success rates.
