Valium Withdrawal

This entry was posted in Uncategorized on by .

It is tragically hard to find medical pros with anything close to the expertise needed for a successful Valium withdrawal. Valium overdose deaths have quadrupled over recent years: safe Valium withdrawal is possible for you or a loved one right now at the Alternative to Meds Center.

Valium use, even if indicated during a time of absolute crisis, does not always mean there are no other choices besides a lifetime of meds.

Are you really your Diagnosis?

Alternative to Meds has been the expert on Valium withdrawal for over 15 years. We have published evidence regarding our success. Underlying issues can in many cases be addressed in much less toxic ways. We find that frequently there were medical conditions, or that the original factors that contributed to the crisis have since shifted, were diagnosed prematurely or even misdiagnosed.

Anti-anxiety drug deaths have been quietly on the rise, and we are seeing a new drug crisis arise. It is not necessary for Valium users to suffer fierce symptoms of Valium withdrawal. Alternative to Meds Center has shown that there are other ways—clinically proven ways—to have people feeling good and engaged in life without suffering from Valium side effects and Valium withdrawal symptoms.

Probably the most frequent question that gets asked about any drug treatment program is, “What is your success rate?” and we are proud to answer because our success rate is unparalleled and documented.

Our program is based on scientific principles, thorough testing and preparatory steps for each client, with medical oversight, and strategies for rebuilding neurochemical health. Alternative to Meds Center utilizes many steps in the program, all aimed to support, promote, and rebuild natural mental health while tapering from Valium. Valium addiction and overdoses are reportedly the next drug crisis but with proper help available, it doesn’t have to be that way.1

Effects of Long Term Use of Benzodiazepines 

Valium, generic diazepam, is one of the first of the benzo drugs to come to consumers and even back in the 60s, there were grave concerns over its side effects. Side effects are reported to intensify over time, especially when taken for more than a few weeks or months. It is not uncommon for people to continue to take benzo drugs long after the recommended 2 to 4 weeks that is currently the view of experts and drug regulators in the UK and elsewhere.2 In the US, more likely a person will continue to take Valium for much longer periods.

The longer a person takes a benzodiazepine, the more difficult the withdrawal of Valium, Xanax, etc., can be. Even the FDA recommends a slow taper over abrupt Valium cessation, but beyond that, no specific advice or guidelines are given on how to successfully maneuver through what can be a debilitating and protracted Valium withdrawal experience. We can help at Alternative to Meds Center. 

The Alternative to Meds Center Valium Withdrawal Program Is a New Approach

natural methodsBefore the withdrawal process can begin, we want the client to be stabilized so he or she can more easily negotiate through it. Excess stress or discomfort actually can be avoided with proper and meticulous oversight, planning, and care. This is our specialty and we have been helping clients with documented success for more than 15 years. 

Stopping Valium doesn’t have to be grueling or horrific, though it is well known that the process can be one that requires attentive treatment and expertise. That is why our staff physicians, therapists, and counselors are exceptionally well-trained and equipped to provide step-by-step guidance and encouragement every step of the way. Micro-adjustments can be made in order to achieve the smoothest and most productive tapering experience possible. This process is supported by neurotoxin removal, nutritional testing, corrections to diet, targeted nutritional supplements, and many other strategies that are designed to provide the body and neurochemistry in particular with the precursors (fuel) needed to rebuild naturally healthy neurochemistry while coming off Valium. In these ways, the process is softened and made much less of a shock to the body. 

Getting to the Root Causes

Another key principle in the programs offered at Alternative to Meds Center is the goal of finding the root causes for the symptoms that led to the prescription or use of drugs in the first place. If the main trouble was insomnia, there are ways to discover what the contributors are to that problem which opens the door to handling them, not simply masking them.

Anxiety, depression, and many other symptoms can be helped in this way, which allows for the symptoms to be reduced or entirely eliminated along with the drugs. Diet is extremely important as many international studies now show.3,4
