Klonopin, Clonazepam, Rivotril are benzodiazepine drugs which will often require specialized holistic detox combined with at least some therapeutic rehab. Many of my readers want to know "Which type of Clonazepam rehab and detox is best for me?"
Clonazepam is a fast acting and long lasting benzo which should not be used continuously for more than a couple of months without risking dependency. Clonazepam has a 30 to 40 hour ½ life and you need to be careful to not take Clonazepam or acohol in large quantities day after day.
If you're wondering if you're dependent on Clonazepam or Klonopin and need rehab or detox, you should consult with a knowledgeable MD on working out a benzo taper protocol for you. If your MD says, 'just stop taking it' and you've tried and hit walls, it's time to read through this article and consider Clonazepam detox and rehab.
You're Not Alone
In 2007 in the US, doctors wrote approximately 89 million benzodiazepine prescriptions. Many of those Clonazepam prescriptions were for alcohol detox. Clonazepam acts on the GABA receptors similarly to alcohol and other sedatives.
I'm hearing directly from people calling for Clonazepam detox, that people are using both alcohol and Clonazepam on a regular daily basis for anxiety, panic and inability to sleep. People are sedating themselves with alcohol and benzos like Klonopin, into unconsciousness and calling this sleep.
The habit of combining alcohol and Clonazepam into a 'sleep remedy' has driven many people to hysteria when they can't get a drink or pills. Attempting to cold turkey and stop drinking or popping pills to sleep can send people into terrors, nightmares, cold sweats, restless legs and other disruptive conditions.
The brave who are determined to end their dependency to Clonazepam often put themselves through extended withdraws called PAWS. The source of their sleep and anxiety problems as well as the Clonazepam withdrawal effects is unhandled and often unknown.
Doctors claiming to be able to treat these side effects with anti-depressants are merely experimenting on you to see what psychotropic drug cocktail seems to work. Your biggest worry is not 'what if this doesn't work', it's 'what if it does'. Short term solutions of one or 2 weeks are usually fine, but what if it's been years and your still on drugs?
Many of my clients have been back and forth to different MDs prescribing benzos, anti-depressants, sleeping pills, sedatives and so on. People eventually realize that their MDs may be their drug dealers, "Have you tried the ____ red ones yet?"
If this is describing you or a family member/s situation with prescription medications, I have some solutions for you.
- Start seeing a different type of doctor who's goal is to help detox you from your prescription pill addiction.
- You'll need a very smart and skilled MD to take you off of Clonazepam successfully without getting you hooked on other drugs or in worse shape mentally and physically than you are now.
- The above two solutions may take 2 to 6 months and be painless if your lucky.
- If you're not so lucky or you believe that those won't work for you, you'll need to contact me about checking into a highly skilled medium to high end Clonazepam detox and rehab center soon.
- The longer you attempt to incorrectly home detox, even if under the supervision of a doctor, the more unnecessary grief and distress you'll put yourself through. People often age noticeably when suffering through toxic reactions of pharmaceutical drugs.
- A better detox solution is to eliminate the toxic effects of Clonazepam by getting to a detox and rehab which focuses on holistic nutritional health. You are probably a lot sicker than you want to let anyone discover. I can assure you, you'll need the most nutritionally and holistically advanced detox for Clonazepam, benzo and alcohol detox and rehab you can find. Call me about those.
- I can attest there are few of these truly successful benzo detox program centers available to US citizens after hearing the horror stories of people going to 'the best' or most popular medical detox centers for Clonazepam, only to have those botch their detox.
A couple final detox tips I'd like to impart now as I truly want you to have a smooth painfree Clonazepam detox and rehab. I want this for you as I know you'll never be off benzos and alcohol without your health returned.
Don't attempt to wean yourself off of benzos and alcohol right before going to detox. If you're on a scheduled benzo and alcohol titration, step down or taper protocol that's fine, continue. If not, don't increase or decrease the amount of benzos or alcohol your consuming before coming into a detox or rehab program.
You'll be far better off by checking into one of the rehabs or detox centers I recommend if you're not yet going through very difficult Clonazepam or alcohol detox symptoms. If you're having them already, it's usually best to call me right away and I'll help get you placed into a successful detox and rehab center the next day.
Addiction to Clonazepam is now becoming a bigger problem for people to kick than alcohol.
