Ambien Addiction

Ambien Addiction

At Alternative to Meds Center, we realize that other answers exist besides lifelong Ambien use and eventual Ambien addiction.


When a person wishes to end addiction to Ambien, also known as Zolpidem, some of the most disturbing symptoms of any medication withdrawal may emerge. We use complex methods of Ambien addiction help that make the process of withdrawal easier and allow for successful, long term relief and recovery.

Ambien, generic name Zolpidem, is known for sedative, hypnotic, muscle-relaxant, and anticonvulsant effects. It is mostly prescribed as a sleep aid; however, many individuals find it exceedingly difficult to discontinue using the drug. Even when sleeping pills are used as recommended, they can produce physical and/or emotional dependence. It is crucial to consult a medical professional for Ambien addiction treatment in order to abate uncomfortable Ambien addiction withdrawal symptoms. Withdrawal symptoms often develop when discontinuing use of this drug, particularly when it is used for prolonged periods of time (longer than a few weeks) or at high dosages. We focus on addressing the problems that Ambien was prescribed for, alleviating withdrawal and helping clients to overcome benzodiazepine addiction. You don’t have to face Ambien addiction alone. We employ scientifically proven methods that can help you. We can effectually eliminate cravings and withdrawal so Ambien addiction recovery can occur without discomfort.

Though Zolpidem is under a class of medications called non-benzodiazepine hypnotics, it is closely related to benzodiazepines, a classification of drugs known for their addictive properties. It potentiates GABA (gamma-amino-butyric acid), a neurotransmitter, through binding itself to GABA receptors in the same areas as benzos do. Tolerance often develops in sedative users after long-term use. Tolerance is when an individual begins to have diminished responses to the drug. This can develop over days, weeks, or months. Tolerance is an effect of adaptive cellular changes or enhanced metabolism of the drug due to extended use. When this occurs, Ambien abuse may become worse, as users feel the need to take more of the drug to achieve the effects that the initially prescribed dose produced. Withdrawal is often a signal of the brain trying to stabilize itself. We know how to create balance in comfortable and safe ways. To overcome cravings, professional help is usually required, such as the treatment provided by our medication withdrawal Center.

Sedatives are commonly prescribed to promote sleep and relaxation. When this drug is used long-term, it often brings more Ambien side effects or other issues than it was prescribed to treat, including pronounced withdrawal symptoms. It is essential for sedative users to know that any beneficial effects received from taking these drugs can be produced in ways without prescription medications or other drugs. Alternative to Meds Center can educate you on how to live your life without drugs, cravings, or mental health symptoms. Long-term users of this medication need to be slowly tapered off with professional Ambien addiction help. When Ambien addiction recovery is done with medical supervision and professional help, withdrawal symptoms and cravings are vastly eliminated. When withdrawal symptoms are decreased to a minimal level, recovery from Ambien dependence becomes possible.

Do you want to end Ambien addiction, but you are worried about withdrawal, cravings or unending insomnia? At our rehab center, medications are handled by our licensed medical staff members. Without help present, Ambien withdrawal can present insomnia, seizures, and protracted withdrawal. In most instances of insomnia, we’ve identified that the person has an accumulation of neurotoxins over-stimulating their central nervous system. This could be the underlying reason that led to the initial use of Ambien. Ambien alternatives that help to substantially ease Ambien withdrawal, our program includes careful taper techniques, use of natural substances for neurochemical support, removing neurotoxins which accumulated in the individuals system due to the drug, and the healing benefits of many therapies created to help the process of recovery including acupuncture, massage, sauna, yoga, nutrient therapy, exercise, group therapy, addiction counseling, spiritual counseling, and other types of counseling. Custom treatment regimens are created for each client.

Have you ever felt like you have an over stimulated nervous system that may be poisoned with neurotoxins?
