Ativan Addiction

Ativan Addiction

Alternative to Meds Center knows that proven ways exist to overcome Ativan addiction and avoid Ativan withdrawal.


When an individual is trying to end an addiction to Ativan, some of the most challenging withdrawal side effects of any medication can emerge. We provide treatment methods and healing therapies that simplify this process and relieve medication withdrawal symptoms. Scientifically proven solutions are available. We can alleviate medication cravings and symptoms of withdrawal so that you can end Ativan addiction without discomfort.

Ativan abuse can be a significant problem which requires Ativan addiction help. When a person has become addicted to a benzodiazepine, withdrawal symptoms are highly likely to be experienced if use of the drug is stopped without professional help. Withdrawal symptoms can include hallucinations, seizures, and panic attacks. If an individual is continuously increasing their Ativan dosage or feels as though they cannot stop taking the drug, Ativan addiction treatment could change their life.

Ativan is the brand name for Lorazepam, a medication that belongs to the group of drugs called benzodiazepines, also known as benzos. Benzos are well known for their highly addictive properties and are highly advised to be used only for short periods ( no longer than 4-6 weeks ). This is often an issue with prescribing Lorazepam, because even when prescribed for a short amount of time; it is usually enough time for the patient to realize that they like the way the feel when they are on this drug, and they do not want to stop taking it. Dependence or Ativan addiction potential is described in one way by feeling as though you need to continue taking a medication even if there is no medical reason present.

Ativan addiction signs are also more likely to develop when the drug has been taken for a long time or at high doses. When it has been used long-term, eventually the benzo user is likely to not feel the same effects from taking the drug as they felt when first prescribed it. Many patients report this to their doctor and then many doctors often raise the dose. Raising the dosage is a temporary fix and can lead to a vicious cycle since it is only a matter of time before the dose will need to be raised again. Benzodiazepine addiction is even more likely to develop among individuals with addiction tendencies and it also has presence on the streets. In order to overcome these challenges, professional Ativan addiction help is generally necessary.

Many doctors are able to pick up on Ativan addiction signs and for the sake of their patients, stop prescribing it to them. This sometimes leads patients to finding the drug on the streets, or from a friend, family member, or drug dealer. Receiving a prescription in the doctor’s office may have quite the snowball effect, leading some individuals down a road of addiction. When a person is addicted to this medication or other benzos, if use of the drug is stopped, their body may not be able to properly function, and Ativan withdrawal symptoms can occur. This medication is prescribed for promoting sleep and relieving anxiety, but when used for long periods of time, this drug often causes more Ativan side effects than the drug was prescribed to address, including pronounced withdrawal symptoms.

We have seen in most cases of anxiety that the individual has a build-up of neurotoxins such as toxic heavy metals that are over-stimulating the nervous system. This can be what led to initial need for Ativan addiction treatment. Benzodiazepine withdrawal can present extreme anxiety, and even protracted withdrawal and seizures. This drug is among the most common type of medications that we address, since withdrawal without help from an Ativan addiction rehab can be almost impossible. With most individuals, rapid Ativan addiction rehab does not truly relieve their problems, since anxiety remains behind even when the medication is long gone from the body. Our scientific approach to overcoming addiction and harmonizing brain function has assisted thousands of people in becoming drug free and healthy.

Even the underlying causes of Ativan use can be better treated without medication present, as the body eventually becomes tolerant to this drug. What are Ativan alternatives? Our methods for this particular type of medication include careful medication tapering methods, removal of accumulated toxins in the individuals system due to use of the medication and environmental sources, support from peers, neurochemical support with natural substances, and benefits from several therapies created for relaxation, including meditation, exercise, sauna therapy, massage therapy, and acupuncture. We create individualized treatment programs for each client. We invite you to call us for more information about Ativan addiction treatments.
