How Long Island Center for Recovery (LICR) Treats Ambien Addiction

Ambien addiction treatment begins with medically supervised detox. Ambien addiction associated with insomnia medication is similar to benzodiazepines, however, with a lower dependency level. This means that while the withdrawal symptoms associated with Ambien addiction are not as life-threatening or severe as that of benzodiazepines but still readily exist.  With the potential for withdrawal symptoms in mind, detox for Ambien addiction treatment would typically be monitored from 1-3days.

Even during the detox period, clients are encouraged to join groups and meetings at our inpatient treatment facility. The Ambien withdrawal period can feel daunting but it helps to have the support of others who are going through the same or similar experiences to share in positive outputs and focus towards a successful sobriety.

Group sessions are a wonderful support but clients suffering from Ambien addiction find that the root of their addiction stems from the client’s feelings of anxiety. For this reason, individual sessions focus on techniques and skills to manage anxiety as feelings of anxiousness set in. These tend to be the strongest post-acute withdrawal symptoms for clients recovering from an Ambien addiction, so it’s essential that clients take full advantage of these individual sessions to learn how to identify the feelings of anxiety, and cope with them without the eventual use of Ambien or other benzodiazepines.

Additional Recommended Therapies For Ambien Addiction Treatment

Beyond the group and individual sessions, Ambien addiction clients are also recommended to take advantage of the following holistic approaches:

Utilizing these forms of holistic therapy and treatment will help clients begin to control their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as they progress in their Ambien addiction treatment. The full allotment of programs is what increases the success of our clients, relying only on psychoeducation through individual and group therapy sessions can only go so far. These holistic therapies bring peace back to the body and brain, allowing clients to absorb and process the information they’re gaining, specifically following their withdrawal and detoxification period.

Frequently asked questions from clients seeking Ambien treatment at Long Island Center for Recovery (LICR)</

Will I learn how to manage my insomnia?

Many clients come to us, addicted to Ambien and reporting high levels of insomnia before and during their active use, and so they are afraid that they won’t be able to cope without the use of Ambien. At LICR, clients will learn how the cycle of use/abuse/addiction leads to further difficulties with insomnia. Instead of continuing down this road, clients will work on proper sleep methods and relaxation over the course of their 28 day stay.
