You might be a mother looking for help for a son, or you might be looking for how to reduce or stop taking Valium. That’s OK here is how to get better.
Admitting you need help is the first, and the hardest, step into the beginning of your recovery journey.
Developing an addiction to Valium is a serious problem for the person who is taking it. Those who take Valium, or know someone who does, are aware of how upsetting it can be for the life of the users and their loved ones.
We can help. We have years of experience with addiction and continue to help many people begin their journey to getting the help they need.
Valium addiction overview
Valium is a drug that belongs to a group called benzodiazepines; those who take Valium use it to treat anxiety, muscle spasms and fits/seizures. It is a very addictive drug.
How to spot an addiction?
Using alone without other people knowing
- Hiding your usage
- Memory loss
- Lying about the amount you take
- Using it to shut out negative thoughts
- Trying to forget memories or traumas
- Trying to numb any pain – physical or psychological
- Using it to turn down thoughts of guilt and shame
- Others being concerned about your behaviour
- Turning into a different person
Treatment: Valium rehab
- Treatment programmes that last from 28-90 days
- 1-3 week detoxes
- Identifies any co-occurring mental health conditions
- Outpatient sessions
- Inpatient “life-changing” programmes
Like any addiction, dependency on prescription pills is treatable.
