Ativan Addiction Treatment Long Island, NY
How Long Island Center for Recovery (LICR) Treats Ativan Addiction
Ativan addiction treatment begins with medically supervised detox. Ativan addiction, like many other benzodiazepines, can be deadly during the withdrawal period without the proper tapering off and support. Stopping cold-turkey can lead to seizures as well as other life-threatening impacts so clients seeking treatment for Ativan addiction go through the proper tapering off detox for at least 5-7days.
Even during the detox period, clients are encouraged to join groups and meetings at our inpatient treatment facility. The Ativan 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 Ativan 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 a Ativan 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 Ativan or other benzodiazepines.
Additional Recommended Therapies For Ativan Addiction Treatment
Beyond the group and individual sessions, Ativan 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 Ativan 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.
