Valium Abuse, Detox and Treatment

Valium Abuse, Detox, and Treatment in NJ

Valium, also known as diazepam, is a muscle relaxant and sedative prescribed for the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, seizures, and more. Valium abuse occurs when the drug is used outside of its prescribed means (whether in dosage or length of time) either medicinally or recreationally. The effects of valium abuse can be physical or psychological and lead to long-term damage in one’s personal life. Because the drug works quickly, dependence on valium is common and often life-threatening. Those addicted to valium may experience nausea, anxiety, irritability, slow or impaired functioning and speech, seizures, or tremors. One should seek medical assistance if they are experiencing any of these symptoms, so that they can begin the necessary detox and treatment processes.

Detox Treatment in NJ Following Valium Abuse

Detox is the first step in recovering from drug addiction. Following valium abuse, medically facilitated detox treatment should ensue in order to rid the body of all toxic substances. Withdrawal symptoms, which occur during detox from valium, are similar to those of alcohol abuse and vary depending on the extent of use. Because these symptoms are difficult to cope with and interfere with recovery, it is often recommended that individual’s seek professional support and care when beginning detox treatment. Doctors may prescribe medication to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and will always provide the necessary mental and emotional support for those pursuing detoxification. These services, in addition to transportation, are offered through GenPsych’s Ambulatory Detox Program. To learn more about the Ambulatory Detox program offered in NJ, click here.

Treatment in NJ for Valium Abuse following Detox

Following detox, and individual suffering from valium abuse should seek additional addiction treatment. While detox is crucial in beginning a clean and healthy life, this process alone does not guarantee long-term success or prevent relapse. In order to continue recovery, a combination of ongoing medicinal and psychological treatment is often recommended for an individual. Through psychiatric and psychological care, an individual can address both the physical effects and mental causes of addiction and learn personal management skills and coping mechanisms that will support them beyond detox.
