Ativan Addiction Treatment In Florida

Overcome Your Lorazepam Addiction With the Tranquil Shores Team

Ativan is one of the most widely prescribed benzodiazepines, second only to Xanax. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most addictive. Anyone from any walk of life can become addicted to Ativan, especially if they take the drug for longer than 4 weeks at a time or in combination with other substances.

Even with perfect use, Ativan can be addictive. Many people need medical help to defeat withdrawal symptoms and must taper their Ativan use to obtain a successful recovery.

Our Florida Ativan addiction rehab program at Tranquil Shores can help you overcome your addiction. Call us at (727) 591-4119 to get started.

What Is Ativan?

Ativan is the brand name for lorazepam and is used for the short-term treatment of anxiety and panic disorders. Like other benzodiazepines, Ativan works by slowing down your nervous system and affects the brain’s GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid) receptors to make you feel calm.

While this feeling can be helpful in the face of a panic attack, Ativan also inspires feelings of relaxation and euphoria that can quickly become addictive. When someone uses too much Ativan, they will build a tolerance to it, which means they will need more and more of the drug to achieve the same effects.

Someone who takes Ativan regularly may also be unable to stop all at once and will have to gradually stop using the drug – usually with medical supervision.

If you’re worried about your Ativan use, our addiction specialists are ready to talk to you 24/7. If appropriate, we can help you begin the admissions process.

How Can I Tell If I’m Addicted to Ativan?

According to Rolling Stone and the U.S. Natural Library of Medicine, “people who’ve taken an excessive amount of Ativan may exhibit unusual behaviors, shakiness, trouble speaking and slurred speech.”

While seeing someone behave this way may be one hint that they are struggling with an addiction, other signs and symptoms of Ativan addiction include:

  • Using or wanting to use Ativan on a regular basis
  • Isolation and relationship issues due to Ativan use
  • Neglecting hobbies and responsibilities to use Ativan
  • Needing more and more Ativan to achieve the same effects (tolerance)
  • Spending lots of time getting, using, and recovering from Ativan
  • Spending money you don’t have on Ativan
  • Doing illegal or dangerous things to get Ativan
  • Engaging in risky behaviors while using Ativan
  • Being unable to cut back or stop using Ativan

The behaviors above can have an enormous impact on your life, and they can be hard to overcome.

Luckily, Tranquil Shores can help.

How Is Ativan Addiction Treated?

Ativan addiction treatment is different for every person. Addiction is a multi-layered issue that requires hard work, dedication, and a customized approach to solve. Treatment should address both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction. In some cases, an addicted person may need to undergo medical detox to conquer the physical dependence, while a subsequent inpatient or outpatient rehab program addresses the psychological dependence.

Our Ativan rehab programs involve a combination of holistic therapies and evidence-based treatment approaches, including:

Recovery is about the beginning of a new life and not about dwelling on what you might have done in the past. The counseling, along with the spiritual basis for the counseling is second to none!
