If you suspect that you or someone you know may have a benzodiazepine addiction, it’s vital to take action quickly. The harmful effects of benzodiazepine addiction will only worsen and become more dangerous over time.
Because withdrawal from benzodiazepines can be particularly dangerous, it’s also critical that you don’t try to solve the problem on your own. Safe detoxification requires professional benzodiazepine treatment, including inpatient benzodiazepine rehab.
Use the information on this page to help you determine whether a benzodiazepine addiction may be present. Then take the first steps toward recovery with proper benzodiazepine treatment from a licensed benzodiazepine rehab facility.
Benzodiazepines (sometimes called “benzos”) are a class of legal but highly addictive sedatives. A person may initially start using benzodiazepines when they’re prescribed by a physician for legitimate reasons, such as anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, epilepsy and even alcohol withdrawal. However, over time, an unintentional dependence on the medication can form. You or your loved one may have done nothing “wrong” and could still be facing benzodiazepine addiction.
These are some of the most common brand names of drugs that classify has benzodiazepine. Keep in mind, though, that you or your loved one may be using a generic version.
These are just a few of the common slang terms for benzodiazepines that you may hear in everyday speech, especially among benzodiazepine addicts.

Prolonged benzodiazepine abuse may result in the following symptoms:
Medically monitored detoxification (“detox”) is the first step of benzodiazepine treatment. It’s extremely important not to try to quit benzodiazepines alone or “cold turkey” because detoxification that is not medically monitored can have severe or even fatal complications.
