Detoxing from Benzodiazepines
Benzodiazepine (benzo) detox from drugs such as: atavan, xanax, valium, klonopin and other benzo's at integrative medical benzodiazepine detox centers is strongly suggested for people having difficulties withdrawing under traditional medical doctors supervision.
Benzo detox is far more involved than a simple alcohol or heroin detox and many traditional medical detox centers won't know how to resolve long term or extended benzo withdrawal effects after leaving detox. The key to getting effective results is to work with a benzodiazepine detox and rehab advisor 1st, before deciding on a detox center.
Tip: Benzo Detox is safely and smoothly done in weeks if natural medicine & nutrition is scientifically incorporated into a benzodiazepine detox program. This means proper testing and handling for toxification and underlying health problems are found and handled early on in detox. That's the secret to healing and healthy recovery.
Caution: Benzo detox takes years to get over if incorrect detox protocol is filling in place of correct detox methods and processes. Traditional medical practice is ignorant of the latest integrated medical techniques in benzo detox. Benzodiazepine detox difficulties resolved rapidly at specialized holistic medical detox centers.

Facts About Benzodiazepine Detox
1. Medical Benzo Detox facilities for are not the same
Typical medical detox facilities even those med detox facilities connected to drug rehab centers for the wealthy, don't have knowledge or expertise in detoxing people having difficulties coming off of benzo's. If difficulties arise, the benzo is only switched to a different drug in the hope the person will be healthier at a later time.
2. Specialized Benzodiazepine Detox Centers exist
Benzo detox centers that have specialized protocol and experience with benzo detox exist in the US in very small and limited numbers.
We work with a small number of integrative detox centers, each have different capacity, amenities and costs. They are located in California, Arizona and Florida. Other centers are found in BC, Canada, Texas and several other states.
How Benzo Addiction Skyrocketed in the US & Canada
The major target for benzo sales in the 1960's was housewives. 'Mothers little helper' was born in the form of a benzo pill.
When then President Bush removed restrictions on pharmaceutical companies to market drugs directly to the public on TV and media, massive pharmaceutical drug addiction over took US and Canada.
The major target of benzodiazepine drug sales in 1990's and 2000's were women. 2/3 people asking for benzos are women and become dependent to benzo's after first getting them from their doctor. Often women only take the drug as prescribed but after a little as 6 weeks or between 6 months to 2 years, the drug can create dependencies in both women and men. Now men are just as likely to fall victim to benzo dependency after beginning benzo use.
Benzodiazepine Detox Symptoms Causing Dependency
* Nervous or anxious conditions are intensified and made worse by benzo drugs
* Withdrawing or reducing benzo amounts intensifies problems to near paralyzing levels
* Brain 'zaps' scare people into returning back onto benzo's and confirm their dependency
3. Many medical benzo detox facilities don't know how to properly and smoothly detox people from benzo's
Understanding the science behind benzo activity, benzo damage and longer term benzo effects are still being discovered. Honest medical science is usually 50 years ahead of medical practice. This means we have about 45 years of waiting until effective and comfortable benzodiazepine detox methodologies enjoy common knowledge and are in practice by average medical detox facilities.
If you are having difficulties that your doctor or specialists are not handling smoothly, your doctor does not know how to properly detox you from benzo's or pills and will not admit he or she don't know how to do it. Often a doctor will say, "It takes time", "You have to stay on benzo's longer", "You're other anxiety, stomach, ____ problems need to heal first", etc. This is your doctors' 'best guess' of why detox 'isn't working for you'.
