Benzo Addiction Programs at Banyan Massachusetts

Benzodiazepines, aka benzos, are drugs that are typically used for calming of a variety of symptoms. They work by enhancing GABA neurotransmitters, which are responsible for calming brain cells. GABA calms cells down, working to inhibit or calm erratic functioning. In a medical setting, benzos are often used to treat bipolar disorder, psychosis, panic attacks, seizures, insomnia, and mental illnesses. Common brand names include Xanax, Valium, Tranxene, Klonopin, and Onfi. When ingested, benzos alter neurotransmitters and create a sense of euphoria that can be highly addictive. But benzo abuse, even of prescription benzos, can become dangerous. Getting sober starts by contacting professionals for addiction treatment in Massachusetts.

Signs of Benzo Addiction

Many people think that benzos are safe because they’re commonly prescribed drugs. At Banyan Treatment Center Massachusetts, we know that benzos are more dangerous than many people think. Benzos are very dangerous and highly addictive. Signs of benzo addiction include:

  • Drowsiness

Doctor shopping is another sign of benzo addiction. When a person visits multiple doctors for similar issues in a short period, or when they’re constantly filling prescription after prescription, they may be doctor shopping.
