Medically Assisted
Valium Detoxification

Valium, the brand name for the commonly prescribed medication diazepam, is a potent and habit-forming benzodiazepine. This specific prescription sedative is most commonly prescribed for the treatment of moderate or severe anxiety disorder, sleep disorders and – in some cases – the symptoms associated with severe alcohol withdrawal. In general, benzodiazepines have a very high potential for abuse and are typically not prescribed for more than several weeks at a time in order to avoid physical and psychological dependence. However, benzodiazepine abuse has been on the rise over the course of the past several years. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the number of American adults who filled a prescription for a benzodiazepine like Valium increased by 67 percent from 1996 to 2013. Benzodiazepines are also largely responsible for the recent and dramatic increase in overdose-related deaths. The same NIDA study found that in the year 2015 alone, 23 percent of individuals who died of an opioid-related overdose also tested positive for benzodiazepines, and over 30 percent of all drug-related overdose deaths directly involved medications like Valium.

If you have been suffering at the hands of a Valium abuse disorder of any severity, seeking medically monitored detox is always a necessary first step. Valium (Benzodiazepine) withdrawal can be extremely dangerous when left untreated, resulting in a wide range of life-threatening physical symptoms.

Valium Abuse and Addiction – Signs & Symptoms

When an individual takes Valium for longer than six weeks, even when taking the medication exactly as prescribed by a medical professional, physical and psychological dependency are likely to occur. There are many telltale signs of Valium addiction, some of the most common being “doctor shopping” (attempting to get more than one prescription at a time from numerous physicians) and developing a physical tolerance (meaning that a higher dose of Valium is required in order for the same results to be produced).

Other common symptoms of Valium abuse and addiction include:

  • Experiencing intense psychological drug cravings 
  • Isolating from close friends and family members/increased need for privacy
  • A loss of interest in activities that were previously enjoyed 
  • Neglecting personal obligations or responsibilities 
  • Continuing to use despite an accumulation of personal consequences 
  • Purchasing more Valium from individuals who have prescriptions
  • Financial and legal issues that directly relate to Valium abuse 
  • Spending ample time obtaining, using and recovering from the effects of the drug
  • A noticeable decline in work performance or performance at school 
  • Experiencing physical withdrawal symptoms when use is stopped abruptly 

Valium Withdrawal – Signs & Symptoms

If an individual has been abusing Valium for six weeks or longer, he or she will experience a range of withdrawal symptoms when use is stopped abruptly. Valium withdrawal typically occurs in two distinct phases – the early phase and the late phase. In most cases, acute withdrawal symptoms completely resolve in the first two weeks. Post-acute withdrawal symptoms, on the other hand, can last for numerous months.

Common symptoms associated with acute Valium withdrawal include:

  • Excessive sweating 
  • Muscle spasms and tremors 
  • Increased heart rate 
  • Increased blood pressure 
  • Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea 
  • Severe abdominal cramping 
  • Intense and persistent headaches 
  • Irritability and aggression
  • Mood swings 
  • Hypersensitivity to light and sound
  • Rebound anxiety and panic attacks
  • Depression and suicidal ideation 
  • Paranoia
  • Delirium 
  • Seizures

Both the physical and psychological symptoms associated with Valium withdrawal can be life-threatening if not comprehensively and immediately treated in a medically monitored detox facility.

Why Medical Detox Is Necessary For Vicodin Addiction

Medical detox is necessary for a number of reasons. First of all, as previously mentioned, symptoms associated with Valium withdrawal are often dangerous when left untreated. Our team of medical professionals has extensive experience treating more severe symptoms like panic attacks, intense headaches and seizures. When it comes to Valium withdrawal a range of detoxification techniques often proves to be the most effective. We typically combine tapering, Medication Assisted Treatment, proven holistic methods and therapeutic intervention to provide our clients with the most integrated detox experience available.
