Ativan (Lorazepam) Addiction Treatment

meditation in treatmentBeating an Ativan addiction can be difficult, especially for those who experience severe physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms. Recovering from an addiction to Ativan can be made easier with medical detox, the proper treatment program and a support system. Patients considering attending Ativan addiction treatment are strongly advised to get a substance abuse evaluation by a an addiction professional to determine their specific needs.

Medically assisted detox is the safest way to quit using Ativan.

Medical detox can help to reduce the physical symptoms of Ativan withdrawal. These symptoms will vary by person, but severe cases can be life-threatening. Detoxing under the supervision of a medical professional will make the detox process safer and less uncomfortable.

Most inpatient programs offer medical detox as the first step in treatment. Many outpatient programs also offer medically assisted detox, allowing the patient to live at home during treatment. These programs will address the psychological aspect of addiction and provide recovering Ativan addicts with the tools to succeed in recovery. Ongoing therapy and support groups are available nationwide to help those in recovery from Ativan addiction. A strong support system will be invaluable both during treatment and throughout one’s recovery.

Ativan-Specific Levels of Care

Finding a treatment center with experience treating Ativan addiction is important. Fortunately, there are plenty out there with the expertise needed to help Ativan users. There are a number of factors that should be taken into consideration when choosing a treatment center, like medical detox services, the length and cost of the program, and treatment of polydrug use and co-occurring disorders.

Inpatient Rehab for Ativan Addiction

Inpatient rehab can be very beneficial for those who have a severe addiction to Ativan. Sometimes, simply getting off the drug may not be enough to achieve a sober life. Inpatient treatment programs provide a controlled environment for Ativan users to immerse themselves in treatment. These programs allow addicts to get away from any influences leading them to use and focus on recovery.

Typically, inpatient treatment programs are 28 to 90 days. The length of a program can be longer or shorter depending on the person’s individual needs and progress.

Treatment usually starts with a medical detox, which allows the user to taper off of Ativan. This involves taking smaller doses of the drug over several weeks. Some programs may treat patients with a long-acting benzodiazepine, like Valium, instead of Ativan to reduce withdrawal symptoms.

Terri H. completed a 30-day inpatient rehab program for addictions to Ativan, alcohol and Valium. Valium and Xanax were provided to help with withdrawal. Although treatment wasn’t easy, it was definitely worth it.

Detox took weeks…[in recovery] you have to be open-minded. You have to be willing to have a new way of life. I am so much happier. I never knew life could be this great.

- Terri H., in recovery for 11 years

Inpatient treatment also involves attending therapy, groups and meetings, as well as participating in recreational activities that promote healing. Many programs offer very structured daily schedules, while some may allow for more individualization.

Treatment for Ativan addiction should address both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction. Detox can help conquer the physical dependence, but a good inpatient program must also help Ativan users overcome their psychological dependence. A number of different treatment approaches and therapies are available, such as:

Inpatient treatment for Ativan addiction is not one size fits all. It’s important to find a program that has worked for other Ativan users and will address your individual needs.

First of all, you have to really want it and be ready. If you don’t “get it,” it won’t work. You have to be completely honest with yourself and trust the process. The right program is essential and AA and NA may not work for everyone. It’s up to you to decide what you need to get and stay sober.

- Heidi D., in recovery from addiction to Ativan and other drugs

Ongoing Treatment and Relapse Prevention Strategies

Outpatient treatment programs are best suited for those with mild to moderate addictions. These programs are also an option for those who are unable to leave home or for inpatient treatment. Generally, those in outpatient programs spend the day going to therapy and support groups and return home in the evening. There are multiple types of outpatient programs, including PHP, IOP, and OP. Treatment can last from 6-8 hours a day in PHP, to 3 hours max per day in IOP, to 1-2 hours per week in OP.

Detox is available in many outpatient programs. Outpatient detox is similar to inpatient detox in that patients taper off Ativan by lowering their dose over time or by taking a long-acting benzodiazepine to wean off the drug.

Ongoing treatment has proven to be very effective in helping people stay sober in recovery. Continuing therapy and support groups allow Ativan users to connect with like-minded people, remain accountable for their actions and express their feelings in a safe environment. Having a community of supporters is essential in recovery to help avoid relapse.

Tips for avoiding relapse include:

  • Join a support group

    There are numerous support groups nationwide for those in recovery from addiction, like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. If you don’t want to join a 12-step group, there are alternatives. One popular alternative is SMART Recovery, which also helps those with co-occurring disorders.

  • Have a support system

    This can be family, friends, a sponsor or those you meet in a support group. These people will inspire you, hold you up when you’re feeling down and help keep you on the path to recovery.

  • Know your triggers and avoid them

    Knowing the triggers that make you want to use is key to maintaining sobriety. Once you identify the people, places or things that make you crave Ativan, you can set boundaries and avoid putting yourself in risky situations. You can also let your support system know about these triggers so they can help you avoid them, as well.

  • Stay away from people you abused drugs with

    This can be the hardest part for some because these people may be your closest friends or family members. However, until they choose sobriety, too, being around them will only put you at risk for relapse.

  • Talk to a counselor

    Speaking with a therapist or counselor is a great way to manage anxiety and stress you may face during recovery. They’ll also be able to give you professional advice and help you learn to cope with cravings.

  • Stick to a schedule

    Maintaining a schedule will help to fill your day and mind, preventing too much down time to think about using.

  • Take care of your body

    A healthy body leads to a healthy mind. Getting the proper amount of sleep, exercise and nutrition can help you to feel your best both physically and mentally.
