Find other ways to cope

Addiction to benzodiazepines can include but are not limited to Xanax, alprazolam, lorazepam, diazepam, Klonopin, and/or many others. It is strongly advised not to take on detox from benzodiazepines alone as not only is it extremely uncomfortable but it also has been known to cause complications such as seizures depending on how severe the addiction is. There are a variety of detox methods available as long as you are working closely with a treatment professional.

Sustained abstinence is best achieved after detox by working the 12 Steps and by working closely with a sponsor. Working with your sponsor is the best opportunity to develop the skill sets needed to live a clean and sober lifestyle as they have been active participants of the program and know exactly where you have been. They help you navigate your way through the 12 Steps effectively while you move on and heal from the past.
