handling a drug problem

We understand how scary benzodiazepine abuse and seeking treatment can be. It’s vital to recognise that there is nothing shameful in seeking help for drug abuse and that you are not alone in your struggle. We want you to know that recovery is possible and help is available. Our private rehab clinic has helped thousands of people recover from addictions to commonly abused drugs. Even if you feel as though your case is hopeless and there is no way out, we ask for a leap of faith in the chance that, soon enough, you can be clean and sober again.

The benzodiazepine addiction treatment we offer at Providence Projects is a holistic way of healing both your body and mind. Our comprehensive inpatient treatment programme involves:
  • Initial Consultation and Assessment
  • Detox
  • Therapeutic rehab programme
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Aftercare

Each person enrolling in Providence Projects begins with a thorough assessment of their physical and psychological health. We will craft a personalised plan that fits your needs based on your current health, the type of addiction you are fighting, and whether there are co-occurring conditions and your preferences.

In the beginning, you will go through detoxification in a safe and controlled environment under the supervision of skilled professionals. Alongside the treatment of physical dependence, we offer a wide variety of science-based approaches that can improve your mental health and resolve the underlying psychological reasons behind your addiction.

Benzodiazepine Detox

Benzodiazepine withdrawal can be very dangerous when not monitored by professionals. Tapering, or safely reducing the number of benzos you take, should be overseen by a medical professional. Otherwise, there is a risk that people who quit benzodiazepines without a structured tapering regime may go into life-threatening seizures, delirium, and other serious symptoms that can significantly harm their health and prevent them from being able to call for help.

Throughout the detox and treatment process, our main priority is always to keep clients safe and comfortable while they deal with the benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome. By undergoing detox within our private residential rehab, the chances you will successfully complete detox are much higher since you are following a strict evidence-based approach. Furthermore, you will be in a completely new environment where your mind doesn’t associate with old triggers that can make you relapse, and you won’t have access to the drug even if you get tempted. Once through the other side, you are free from the physical dependence that held you hostage. However, just because your body is free doesn’t mean the fight against addiction is over. In many cases, underlying problems push you toward addiction, and your mind may have developed a psychological dependence on the drug.

Proven Therapies

Through therapy, you will get a safe environment to share your struggles, find emotional support when struggling, and find more about yourself and the problems that negatively influence your mental health. Alongside therapy, we offer a wide variety of useful activities where you can learn valuable skills that can pave the way for successful long-term sobriety, like how to start and maintain healthy habits, what to do during an emergency, and how to control and cope with cravings.
CBT and DBT are two highly respected therapies within the addiction treatment field. We have hired the best therapists specialising in these behavioural therapeutic methods to support your recovery.

In addition to these two therapies, we also offer holistic treatment, including acupuncture and artistic therapies, to free your mind from pressures and allow you to find new ways to express your feelings and emotions. Traces of your benzodiazepine dependence can remain once you return to your home and old environment, which may be full of places you associate with familiar habits and triggers that create cravings that you had forgotten about. Therefore, we also offer an aftercare programme, which can help you stay on track with your goals by offering accountability checks, continued support and guidance with an addiction counsellor, and assistance if you want to enrol into support groups like 12 Step.

How Long Do I Need Treatment for?

Addiction does not happen overnight; it’s a highly complicated condition that comes with a lot of emotional baggage, other co-occurring conditions and underlying mental health issues that ought to be addressed. Behaviour patterns take a lot of time to change, and habits take 4 to 6 weeks to form if practised consistently. The amount of time each individual requires in rehab treatment can vary greatly depending on the severity of the addiction, their receptiveness to therapy and feedback from therapists and counsellors, and the time it takes to change their mindset and build healthier habits. In general, the longer someone stays in rehabilitation, the greater their chance of successfully overcoming their addiction.

We initially recommend a minimum stay of 28 days at our detox and rehab clinic, which is the minimum amount of time necessary to tackle the addiction’s core physical and psychological elements. Residents can complete up to 12 weeks of treatment, followed by up to a further three months in our aftercare programme.

Both programmes use science-based addiction treatment techniques and are tailored to the needs and circumstances of the individual since we know that what works for one addict won’t necessarily work for another.

Benzodiazepines Addiction Treatment – FAQs
What Is Residential Benzodiazepine Addiction Treatment?

Residential addiction treatment involves a holistic programme that begins with a comprehensive assessment of your physical and mental health, followed by a detox process and therapy that seek to address the physical and psychological dependence you’ve developed toward benzodiazepine.

Is Benzodiazepine Addiction Treatable?

Yes, no matter how severe the addiction may appear, there is always hope for you to treat and recover from benzodiazepine addiction. To maximize your chances of success, especially if you’ve been using the substance in very high doses or for a very long time, it’s strongly advisable to enrol on an inpatient programme to get professional medical help while you manage the withdrawal symptoms.

How Long Does It Take to Heal from Benzodiazepine Abuse?

Removing your physical dependence on the substance is usually achieved once the detoxification process is over, which will take a maximum of four weeks. However, the therapy needed to address the underlying psychological issues that led to substance abuse usually takes more than that, and the chance of relapsing never goes down to zero, which is why addiction should be viewed as a lifelong fight.

Can Benzodiazepine Addiction Be Treated in One Week?

No, addiction does not happen overnight, and it can’t be fixed that quickly, even if we wish to. In much the same way, you gradually get addicted and develop both a physical and psychological dependence, cleansing your body and mind will take a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks to see considerable results.

Can I Get Treatment for Benzodiazepine Addiction Without the 12 Steps?

Yes, The Providence Projects offers a personalised rehabilitation programme that keeps your preferences and other relevant factors in mind. You can get a treatment plan that doesn’t involve the 12 steps since you can try a wide variety of therapeutic approaches.

How to Help Someone with Benzodiazepine Addiction?

Helping someone who’s suffering from an addiction requires a very sensible and careful approach. You should bring up the issue in a non-intrusive way by gently explaining the effect on their physical and mental health that addiction has and why they should seek out help. It’s important to emphasise that they are not to blame, and there’s to be ashamed of while also stressing that they should take action now before it gets worse.
