Valium Addiction Treatment

Valium Addiction Help & Treatment

Valium is a benzodiazepine causes physical physical dependence and benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome. The symptoms are similar to alcohol and barbiturate withdrawal. Withdrawal symptoms can be experienced even from prescribed dosage or short-term usage. The longer the usage, the more unpleasant are the withdrawal symptoms.

This initial withdrawal phase may take up to 3 weeks. Upon completion, patients feel much better and are ready to progress to continuing addiction treatment. Leaving treatment after detox almost guarantees relapse and a need to repeat the uncomfortable withdrawal period. Detox is not treatment; detox simply allows treatment to take place.
