Benzo Withdrawal

Benzo Withdrawal

Benzo withdrawal is one of the most frequent problems that we treat at Alternative to Meds Center. In our luxury-styled, Sedona residential treatment setting, our staff takes meticulous care of each client through the process of safely, gently, tapering from their medications.


Due to the aggressiveness and severity of the withdrawals from benzo drugs, help is very often needed to navigate through the process and reach a successful outcome. We have helped many thousands to make this transition, many of whom previously considered the task so difficult as to be near to impossible. Our center shines a bright and welcome light at the end of the benzo tunnel.

We use holistic methods to prepare the client and then begin safe and comfortable benzo tapering protocols. Some of the program steps include:

  • lab tests to assess neurotoxic load and other vital information
  • cleansing of neurotoxic materials from the body
  • stabilizing the neurochemistry
  • many holistic therapies such as acupuncture, use of low-temperature sauna, massage and more.
  • nebulized glutathione treatments
  • colonics
  • heavy metal chelation
  • peer support
  • personal private counseling
  • neurochemical support through nutrition, natural substances and bridge medications where needed

Why is Neurotoxin Removal Vital Before Tapering from Benzo Drugs?

When a client is experiencing a constant state or pattern of anxiety, there is usually an underlying neurotoxic accumulation causing this anxiety to present. The toxic load could be a mercury build up (think dental amalgams), or it could be from aspartame (think diet sodas), or other food additives, or from environmental poisons such as pesticides, harsh cleaning compounds or airborne pollutants. We know this because when clients have completed their neurotoxic cleanse step, and their neurotoxic load is lessened, so is their anxiety. Taking prescription drugs to treat anxiety makes for a not only risky and dangerous quest, but benzos become ineffective in the long run and carry many liabilities which were not and are not necessary to endure.

Withdrawal Symptoms of Benzo Drugs

Benzo withdrawal symptoms can be harsh without embarking on a tapering protocol such as ours.

Some of the more severe Benzo withdrawals are:

  • seizures
  • involuntary muscle contractions, cramps, stiffening of the muscles
  • psychosis
  • suicidality
  • altered perceptions, hallucinations
  • rebound anxiety (severe)
  • tremors, shakiness
  • rebound insomnia (more pronounced than before use of benzos)

Some of the more commonly reported symptoms during benzo discontinuation can include:

  • insomnia and sleep disturbances
  • panic attacks
  • headaches
  • sweating
  • cannot focus or concentrate
  • dry retching
  • muscular pain
  • nausea
  • weight loss
  • heart palpitations
