Alternative to Meds Center knows that efficient Ambien alternatives and other solutions exist besides staying medicated for life.
Antipsychotics like Ambien, even if indicated during a time of demonstrable crisis, does not always mean that a lifetime of being medicated is warranted.

15 Year Experience by Professionals Who Understand Your Journey.
At Alternative to Meds Center, we know that there are Ambien alternatives and better solutions for mental health problems besides a lifetime of taking Ambien (becoming an “Ambien Zombie“).
For people troubled by anxiety, depression, insomnia, or other conditions that have been unresponsive to Ambien, or who were unable to tolerate the side effects and the risks of physical dependence, Ambien alternatives assistance could change your life. Alternative to Meds Center offers Ambien alternatives treatment that allows people to taper off of this medication safely and comfortably and begin to use sustainable, holistic alternatives to Ambien.
Though people are often prescribed Ambien, also known as Zolpidem Tartrate, for short-term treatment of insomnia, the drug is often not well tolerated, and many individuals seek more natural alternatives to Ambien for insomnia treatment. Zolpidem has sedative and hypnotic effects, similar to that of a benzodiazepine; it binds to the same GABA receptor sites that benzodiazepine medications do. This sleeping pill may not work adequately. Serious Ambien side effects include physical or psychological dependence on the drug, addiction, and difficult withdrawal symptoms if the use of the sleeping pill is discontinued. Alternative to Meds Center provides effective, lasting Ambien alternatives for insomnia and knows how to relieve cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
When Sleeping Pills No Longer Work
When sedative sleeping pills aren’t working or are causing significant problems, individuals may consider Ambien alternatives treatment. In most cases, identifying and treating the underlying problems and causes or using specific behavioral techniques may significantly help to treat insomnia. Insomnia may be a result of one or more of many possible underlying psychological or medical problems. In many of these cases, through treating the medical or psychological condition with various alternatives to Ambien methods, insomnia can improve. Additionally, identifying certain behaviors such as smoking cigarettes or drinking alcohol, which can worsen insomnia, and eliminating (or reducing) these behaviors may profoundly benefit a person during insomnia treatment. Alternative to Meds Center provides customized programs for each client, with individualized recommendations for diet, targeted supplementation and nutritional needs. We aim to identify and correct the causes of the symptoms that led you to take Ambien.1
We provide a range of behavioral techniques that can be used to improve sleep, such as sleep restriction therapy, reconditioning and relaxation therapy. Sleep restriction therapy may benefit individuals with insomnia who spend too much time in their bed trying to fall asleep unsuccessfully. At first, a sleep restriction program may consist of allowing only a few hours of sleep at night. Sleep time is gradually increased until a normal night of sleep is achieved. Reconditioning is another therapy that can help people with insomnia by reconditioning them to only associate their bed with sleep. Alternative to Meds Center clients receive individualized attention based on their unique situation and needs.
Effective Integrative Approach
Relaxation therapy is another form of Ambien alternatives help, a set of behavioral techniques that can improve insomnia. Specific and effective techniques exist that can eliminate or at least vastly reduce body tension and anxiety. As a result of these therapies, the muscles relax, the individual’s mind is able to stop “racing,” and restful sleep can occur. It can take practice and proper instruction to effectively learn these techniques but is worthwhile to achieve effective relaxation. Alternative to Meds Center’s rehab program offers comprehensive help that includes using natural substances to support the neurochemistry, removing neurotoxins accumulated in the individuals system from use of the drug and from environmental exposure to toxins, etc. Peer support can help significantly, as well as the beneficial effects of many therapies that are provided that promote relaxation such as massage, physical exercise, acupuncture, sauna therapy, and yoga.
