Valium (diazepam) rehab
Picture a tranquil oasis where healing and transformation take centre stage. Valium, also known as diazepam, may have started as a lifeline in managing anxiety or insomnia, but the path to Valium addiction can be subtle and insidious. With Linwood House’s Valium rehab programmes, we don’t just treat the symptoms of your dependency; we dig deep to address the root causes, providing a comprehensive approach that empowers you to reclaim your life, one step at a time.
Why is Valium rehab important?
Valium rehab is an effective form of benzodiazepine rehab specifically designed for those suffering with a dependence on Valium. Valium rehab explores the roots of your condition to identify the underlying psychological causes for starting drug use in the first place. It also explores any co-occurring mental health conditions that are exacerbating or contributing to your condition. By addressing these issues, Valium rehab gives you a chance to truly reflect on your health, learn about triggers for your drug use, change your thinking patterns and develop healthier behaviours.
Do I need Valium rehab?
It is not always easy to recognise the need for treatment so you may be unsure whether Valium rehab is right for you. Your condition may mask underlying issues, manipulate your loved ones into thinking you don’t need help or convince you that you can overcome dependency on your own.
To help you decide if you would benefit from Valium rehab, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do you experience cravings for valium?
- Have you lied to others about your Valium use?
- Have you lost interest in recreational or social activities?
- Do you spend much of your time obtaining, using or recovering from Valium?
- Have you attempted to stop using Valium but found that you could not?
- Do you experience withdrawal symptoms when you do not have access to Valium?
- Have you neglected personal, family or work obligations and responsibilities due to Valium use?
- Have you continued Valium use despite negative consequences on you or those around you?
- Do you feel like you need Valium to feel ‘normal’?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, get in touch with Linwood House today. Our support team can help confirm whether you need Valium rehab and inform you of available treatment options.
What does Valium detox involve?
The first stage of effective treatment is removing Valium and its toxins from your body to break physical dependence on the drug. This is a process called Valium detox and it is safest and most effective when completed under medical supervision at a centre like Linwood House.
Valium withdrawal symptoms
While you are undergoing Valium detox, you are at high risk of relapse. This is because of the intensity of withdrawal symptoms as well as rebound anxiety, an acute form of anxiety which can flare up when you first stop taking Valium.
Acute symptoms can last anywhere between three to four days, whereafter you will typically experience a more lengthy withdrawal phase which can continue for ten to fourteen days. In some cases, you may experience post-acute withdrawal syndrome, which consists of more general psychological symptoms that last for an even longer period.
The appearance of these Valium withdrawal symptoms, physical symptoms as well as rebound anxiety can make it very difficult for you to quit Valium without professional help. At Linwood House, we will gradually taper your Valium dosage, help you manage withdrawal symptoms and prepare you for the next stages of recovery treatment.
What to expect from Valium rehab
After detox, Valium rehab treatment involves two main steps, with additional integrated workshops, healing activities and treatments:
Rehabilitation: Addressing the root causes of your condition
This step allows you to learn about yourself, understand more about your condition and develop skills to maintain sobriety after Valium rehab. It involves various proven therapies, some of which are on a one-to-one basis and others that are in a group setting.
Some of the therapies in Linwood House’s Valium rehab programmes include:
We also offer art and music therapy, yoga, guided meditation and sports or educational workshops. These activities are all aimed at holistic healing. They can help provide stress relief, allow emotional expression and management and improve your overall well-being.
While it may seem like a simple process, we know that recovery requires time, dedication, commitment and a willingness to change. Our Valium rehab programme will provide you with the tools and skills to develop and maintain healthy habits and lay the foundation for a sober life.
At Linwood House, we ensure that our private inpatient facility provides a safe environment, where you are free from distractions and surrounded by support. While you are completing Valium rehab, You will have the opportunity to attend Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings at Linwood House and also travel – with transport and support provided – to weekly NA meetings in Sheffield.
However, we also know that the road to recovery comes with many challenges, especially after you leave our treatment centre. That is why we provide ongoing support while you transition back to normal life. After leaving us, you will be able to join our alumni programme, which includes phone calls, message groups and regular social gatherings which can help whenever you feel tempted to use Valium again and can also provide long-lasting support networks.
Valium rehab will equip you with the tools and skills to best maintain your sobriety. However, recovery is a lifelong process, and relapse is a possibility. It is important to remember that relapse is part of the difficult road to recovery and does not mean failure. Instead, it is a sign that you need to get back on track, modify your treatment plan and reach out for continued care.
In the case that relapse does occur, our support team is here for you and can help you to assess what went wrong to avoid relapse in the future.
