Benzodiazepines (also known as benzos) are among the most commonly abused types of prescription drugs. They have a sedative effect and are commonly used to treat anxiety. Some of the more common types of benzos include Xanax® and Valium®. These drugs are highly addictive and should not be used for prolonged periods of time. If you’re struggling with benzo dependency, whether you started taking them recreationally or you kept on using them to treat anxiety disorder and couldn’t stop, the first step toward recovery is detox. Detox from benzos is best performed with the help of experienced and qualified professionals.
Symptoms of Benzo Withdrawal
Withdrawal symptoms are one of the first signs of addiction. In the case of benzos, withdrawal symptoms include but are not limited to sleep disturbance, irritability, increased tension and anxiety, panic attacks, hand tremor, sweating, difficulty in concentration, dry-heaving and nausea, some weight loss, palpitations, headache, muscular pain, and stiffness. While you may be able to detox on your own during the early stages of benzo withdrawal, it’s never advisable to try and undertake severe withdrawal management on your own. The reality is these symptoms can be life-threatening. Detox is a bona fide medical procedure and should be treated as such.

Florida Alcohol and Drug Rehab Centers
Florida has an infamous and unfortunate legacy when it comes to substance use and addiction. At one time, it was ground zero for “pill mills” (pain management clinics that wrote opioid prescriptions for profit) and is still battling substance use on a variety of fronts. Cocaine continues to be a problem in Miami while prescription painkiller abuse still dominates many areas of the state, from Fort Myers to Fort Lauderdale to Fort Walton Beach. Florida ranks second in the nation for the highest rates of overdose deaths, 7,500 overdose deaths in Florida in 2020 compared to just over 5,500 the year before. If you or your loved one are among the thousands in Florida that need help for addiction, there are many resources available to you.
Substance Abuse Treatment Resources in Florida
In response to the explosion of prescription and illicit drug abuse in the state, Florida has given birth to hundreds of treatment facilities, but not all treatment centers will offer the same services or levels of care. Some will offer inpatient treatment and onsite medical detoxification (detox); others will simply offer outpatient counseling and rehab and offsite coordination with detox. The state also offers many treatment facilities that offer Medicare and Medicaid for patients of advanced age or limited financial means. Florida has also become a preferred recovery destination because of the forgiving climate all year round.
