Facts About Benzodiazepine Detox
1. Medical Detox facilities are not the same.
Typical medical detox facilities even those med detox facilities connected to drug rehab centers for the wealthy, don’t have knowledge or expertise in detoxing people having difficulties coming off of benzo’s. If difficulties arise, the benzo is only switched to a different drug in the hope the person will be healthier at a later time.
2. Specialized Benzodiazepine Detox Centers exist.
Benzo detox centers that have specialized protocol and experience with benzo detox exist in the US in very small and limited numbers.
A small sample of integrative detox centers are Novus in FL, USA and Agora in BC, Canada. Other integrative detox centers exist and can be found by a Google search or contacting the author of this article.
How Benzo Addiction Skyrocketed in the US & Canada
The major target for benzo sales in the 1960’s was housewives. ‘Mothers little helper’ was born in the form of a benzo pill.
When then President Bush removed restrictions on pharmaceutical companies to market drugs directly to the public on TV and media, massive pharmaceutical drug addiction over took US and Canada.
The major target of benzodiazepine drug sales in 1990’s and 2000’s were women. Women are most likely to ask for and become dependent to benzo’s after first getting them from their doctor. Often women only take the drug as prescribed but after a little as 6 weeks or between 6 months to 2 years, the drug can create dependencies in both women and men. Now men are just as likely to fall victim to benzo dependency. parazitol pro natura

* Withdrawing or reducing benzo amounts intensifies problems to near paralyzing levels

3. Many medical detox facilities don’t know how to properly and smoothly detox people from benzo’s.
Understanding the science behind benzo activity, benzo damage and longer term benzo effects are still being discovered. Honest medical science is usually 50 years ahead of medical practice. This means we have about 45 years of waiting until effective and comfortable benzodiazapine detox methodologies enjoy common knowledge and are in practice by average medical detox facilities.
Unless you want to wait another 45 years, I suggest you look into integrative medical detox facilities. We’ve found several in the USA, each has very different amenities and qualifications. Many clients were desperate as no other treatments had worked before. I’ve sent dozens of clients to select centers and all have reported a smooth and pleasant detox.
