Benzodiazepines, like Valium, Xanax, Alprazolam and Klonopin, are central nervous system depressants. Benzodiazepines are prescribed to treat insomnia, seizures, anxiety and to manage stress. In large doses it can create a feeling of euphoria and relaxation, which can be inviting for a user to experience again and again. Chronic abuse of benzodiazepines can lead to addiction, and combining these drugs with other depressants like alcohol can be fatal.

High doses of benzodiazepines can produce serious side effects that include: drowsiness, confusion, weakness, blurred vision, slurred speech and coma. Chronic use has also been known to produce: feelings of anxiety, insomnia, anorexia and persistent headaches.

At Lighthouse Detox, we ensure a comfortable transition from benzodiazepines through the correct usage of medication to control symptoms of withdrawal and urges for consumption.
