Success Story
“As an individual who has worked with the victims of our mental health systems, I would like to note that we are in desperate need of programs like Alternative to Meds Center. This program is much more effective than the government funded programs. This program is giving me back the daughter I raised, and now she can be a productive citizen; not the zoned-out zombie and future state ward the government facility was turning her into. We very badly need such effective means as offered by the Alternative to Meds Center to handle this very big problem.”

You don’t have to go endure your Ativan withdrawal alone -
We employ proven methods to simplify this process

Ativan, also known as Lorazepam, is a benzodiazepine used primarily to treat anxiety related disorders, and is also known for its highly addictive potential and risks of serious Ativan withdrawal symptoms. Benzos can cause psychological and physical dependence to develop in as little as two to four weeks. Ativan withdrawal help is needed to end use of this drug, as unsupported discontinuation could be devilishly challenging. 

These medications are given to people to promote sleep and lessen anxiety. However, if used for longer periods ( four weeks or more ), Benzos will often bring more problems than they were meant to treat, including pronounced Ativan addiction. Ativan tapering symptoms can include but are not limited to: severe panic, extreme fatigue, headaches, ringing in the ears, heart palpitations, muscle spasms, trouble breathing, extreme insomnia, nausea, and depression.

Withdrawal is the neurochemistry trying to stabilize itself –
we can make sure your transition to balance is comfortable

If you withdraw from benzodiazepines abruptly, there is a serious risk of suffering life-threatening seizures, psychosis or convulsions. Therefore, it is crucial to consult with a medical professional, preferably in a rehab center; where 24/7 Ativan withdrawal treatment is available. To avoid severe benzo withdrawal symptoms and to lessen Ativan withdrawal duration, it's critical to be gradually tapered off of the medication. Withdrawing too quickly or abruptly can result in severe adverse effects because of the physical and psychological nature of benzodiazepines. The most severe symptoms are seizures, which is potentially life threatening. Those embarking on sensible journeys of Ativan withdrawal programs can be assured that the chances of these severe withdrawal symptoms are significantly lessened.

One should not feel afraid of asking for Ativan withdrawal help, even if Ativan addiction is present or if the drug is being taken without a prescription, as symptoms of benzo withdrawal may be serious or life-threatening. Also, the potent amnesiac effect of this drug makes it less desirable for daily use as it can impair your memory. There are many benefits of benzodiazepine withdrawal; however, this process must be done properly to avoid acute or protracted benzodiazepine withdrawal. When a benzodiazepine is in the system, it makes the nerve synapse less absorbent to Calcium and more absorbent to GABA. You don’t have to suffer from protracted benzodiazepine withdrawal.

Our world class withdrawal program provides an ideal
surrounding for quitting Ativan safely and smoothly

What part of the body is targeted by benzodiazepine medications? GABA; GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter of the body; it lessens the intensity of nerve impulses. Benzo use causes the body to waste all of its available GABA, and when the GABA is all gone, everything seems over stimulating. Acute benzodiazepine withdrawal is like a hangover, but worse. It is an acute inability of the body to lessen nerve impulses, so every sight, sound and sensation can seem torturous. Since the drug has used all of the GABA, the body is unable to regulate stimulation. One must choose a slow and careful withdrawal program which their body can take in order to endure the area of stopping Ativan. Additionally, the sudden Calcium influx is what may result in muscle contractions, or even seizures. Do you aspire to treat mental health more naturally, but want to avoid withdrawal? We can help!

Protracted benzo withdrawal is commonly blamed on the medication still exiting the body or receptors that have been damaged. Many people wonder “Ativan withdrawal, how long does it last”? What individuals are actually usually experiencing here is the same toxicity of chemicals that may have led to use of the benzodiazepine initially, and an additional damage to receptors and drug residues. Residual neurotoxins can act as excitotoxins in the individual’s neurology. This will continue to happen until they are detoxified. Here at Alternative to Meds Center, our techniques remove these toxins so the person can remain off the drug without continued anxiety or insomnia symptoms. We find in most cases of anxiety, that the individual has an accumulation of neurotoxins. Benzodiazepines are the class of drugs we most commonly help people withdraw from, as unsupported Ativan withdrawal symptoms are extremely difficult. Our methods include detoxification of neurotoxins which accumulated due to the drug or their environment, careful drug tapering techniques, natural substances to create neurochemical support, support from peers, and several other beneficial therapies and Ativan withdrawal treatments for relaxation including sauna, massage, meditation, and acupuncture.

Our goal is to teach you how to maintain mental healthiness for the rest of your life

Does it feel like you have tried all ways to get off Ativan or other benzodiazepine drugs and nothing has helped? Do you feel like you have a nervous system that has become poisoned from neurotoxins? Neurotransmitter imbalances can be what started causing the symptoms which led to medication use; we know how to create neurochemical stability. Since anxiety remains even if the drug is no longer present; for many people, rapid Ativan withdrawal help doesn’t relieve the problems. Individualized treatment is successful; the same approach doesn’t work for everybody.

We’ve worked with a thousand individuals within a 24 hour residential treatment setting, and we are remarkably familiar with this problem. Each week, former benzo users graduate our program. Friends and families attend, and feel shocked because we actually found solutions to the problems, and the participants have gained the necessary knowledge to maintain a lie that supports their newfound serenity. Please call to understand what can be done to help you, or a person that you love. We’re here to make sure this problem is solved effectively.
