Benzodiazepine Treatment Center
Treatment For Prescription Drug Abuse
Benzodiazepines are prescription drugs like Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, and Ativan that enhance the effect of the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), resulting in sedative, sleep-inducing, anti-anxiety, anticonvulsant, and muscle relaxant properties. These prescription drugs are often prescribed for anxiety, insomnia, muscle spasms, seizures, or panic attacks. Corner Canyon’s inpatient benzodiazepine treatment helps clients recover from prescription drug abuse. Our program treats benzodiazepine addiction through 12-step Recovery, Smart Recovery, and Refuge Recovery, depending on the client’s choice.
Benzodiazepine treatment involves integrated therapeutic modalities and cycle work, where the user begins to recognize their cycle of use, why they use, what their triggers are, consequences of addiction, and healthy coping mechanisms to prevent relapse.
If you or a loved one suffers from a prescription drug addiction, call us now: 877-717-6237.
What Are Benzodiazepines?
Benzodiazepines, like other prescription drugs, are designed to help with legitimate physical and mental problems, but this use can turn into addiction in people who are predisposed genetically or who use them for too long. Corner Canyon Health Centers specializes in helping these individuals with treatment for benzodiazepine or prescription drug abuse. We do DNA Testing for Addiction to assist clients in understanding their genetic predisposition to benzodiazepine drugs.
