At Divinity Recovery, Inc., we offer Ativan Detox for those struggling with an addiction to Ativan. Ativan, also known as lorazepam, is commonly used to treat anxiety disorders, but is often misused and has a high risk for addiction or dependency. The detox process can be quite dangerous and is best to do in a safe, medical environment.
Why it is Best to Medically Detox
Ativan detox can be incredibly dangerous, not just physically, but psychologically. Discontinuing usage of Ativan “cold turkey” can have adverse physical symptoms like increased heart rate, insomnia, nausea or vomiting, cravings, muscle pain or stiffness, etc. However, the psychological symptoms can often times be worse for someone withdrawing from Ativan, such as suicidal thoughts and idealization, increased anxiety, and more. Oftentimes, those who are addicted to Ativan will experience rebound symptoms when trying to quit. Rebound symptoms are the temporary return of the symptoms that led the person to take Ativan initially, like anxiety or insomnia. This causes an increase in relapses in those trying to discontinue the use of Ativan. Because of this, and the adverse side effects of “cold-turkey” quitting Ativan, it is best to do so under constant medical attention.
Medical Ativan Detox
Once enrolled in Ativan Detox, your team of medical professionals will decide what is the best process for you to go about your detox. Oftentimes the best course of action is to use a tapering-off method for detox. This allows for those battling addiction to safely wean off of the Ativan facing less of the harmful withdrawal symptoms. In some cases, medication assisted detoxing is necessary. This happens when the Ativan is replaced with a different, safer medication that is weaned off with the Ativan until the patient is successfully no longer dependent on either medication.
