How Benzo Addiction Develops

Benzodiazepines, also known as benzos, are substances that are used to treat a variety of mood disorders and other health conditions. These drugs are central nervous system depressants, which means that they slow brain activity. Benzos are incredibly effective at treating anxiety disorders, panic attacks, and insomnia. However, they also have a high potential for abuse. Even benzos that are prescribed by a doctor can be misused, leading to dependence and addiction.

Some of the most common benzos that can lead to addiction include Xanax, Valium, and Klonopin.

What makes benzos addictive? Some individuals who use these drugs become addicted to the sedating effects they provide. They might go to more than one doctor for a prescription once they develop an increased tolerance. If they’re unable to obtain more benzos, they might experience withdrawal symptoms. Common benzo withdrawal symptoms can include:

  • Trouble sleeping
  • Irritability
  • Panic attacks
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Excessive sweating

In some cases, benzo withdrawal can be dangerous. At New Hampshire Detox Center, we recommend that anyone who is struggling with benzo addiction go through withdrawal in the safety of our treatment center. We provide medical support and counseling to help our clients during the challenging early days of recovery.
