Sedative dependence is physical and sometimes psychological and people who take sedative drugs can rapidly develop a tolerance for the drugs; tolerance is when a higher and higher dose must be taken each time to produce the same effect. Since these drugs can be physically addicting, people who have become addicted experience physical sedative withdrawal symptoms when the drug is discontinued without help. Sedative addiction symptoms can appear when people abuse or misuse these drugs, and many people who abuse sedatives also abuse other drugs. Some people abuse sedative drugs to enhance the effects of opiates or use a sedative to come down from cocaine high.

Addiction to sedatives develops from a physical dependence, and if use continues, the addiction snowballs into a full-blown psychological and physical addiction. Many people are prescribed a sedating drug for a short amount of time and then they stop taking it as prescribed. Other people who get a prescription to a sedating drug by a doctor do not stop using the drug when they are supposed to and take more of the medication than they are supposed to. Sedative abusers will continue to use these drugs even though it may cause interpersonal difficulties and problems with meeting the basic responsibilities of everyday life. We address addictive biochemistry, the underlying reasons of problems, withdrawal, mental health and much more. The sedative addiction treatment we provide can help you overcome any problems you may be facing.

Addicts may start going to several different doctors and trying to get multiple prescriptions, they may purchase sedative drugs on the street, and many people who continue to head down this path start using other drugs such as heroin or cocaine if they can’t get the desired sedating medications. Sedating medications are mainly used for anxiety, depression, and before minor surgeries. They include the benzodiazepines Xanax, Valium and Ativan which all can lead to benzodiazepine addiction. Benzodiazepines are known as a highly addictive class of drugs, and certain benzodiazepines are classified as sedatives. Benzodiazepines and other types of sedative drugs are remarkably tranquilizing and can easily cause overdose or other severe health problems from consuming too much. Symptoms of sedative withdrawal can often scare people from ending use of their medication; however, with sedative addiction help the fear of withdrawal can be alleviated. The meticulous methods we use to combat addiction have helped thousands.

Benzodiazepines and other sedatives make you “feel good”; many people do not have a hard time forming an addiction to something that makes them feel good. It appears that most addictions to these drugs stem from receiving a prescription from a doctor, and these medications also appear to be gateway drugs. People can be prescribed a medication for the first time in their life for a number of legitimate reasons, such as being afraid to fly. The doctor prescribes a sedating drug that will help their patient relax during their flight, and the patient likes the way it feels a little too much. Now all of a sudden, this patient wants more. They may be able to get away with a few more prescriptions from the doctor, but eventually they will run out of options and often turn to using other drugs. You do not have to get caught up in the vicious routine of prescription medication addiction.

Addiction can occur in a person’s life without the person even being aware of it, especially if they have been prescribed a sedating medication for long-term treatment. Just by simply consuming these medications every day, a physical dependence is likely being developed whether it is identified or not, and then slowly a psychological dependence occurs as well. The brain and the body start to rely on the consumption of these drugs to function normally. When an addiction or dependency has formed, if use of the drug is discontinued; withdrawal symptoms are sure to emerge.
