Lorazepam is a prescribed medication used to treat common symptoms of anxiety. While helpful, it's also very habit-forming, because of the euphoria and soothing effects it produces. If Ativan® has taken over your life, you need to get support. A medically guided detox is the initial step to overcoming your substance use disorder and starting you on a track to recovery.
Sunrise Detox Center can help. Our Ativan detox will safely eliminate the drug from your body and successfully manage potentially devastating withdrawal symptoms. Call us at 888-443-3869 to begin your recovery.
Should I Begin Lorazepam Detox?
In the same classification of sedative drugs as Alprazolam, Lorazepam is slower to act but persists for a longer period. Dependency can emerge swiftly, especially if you use outside of your prescription. If you’re wondering if you need assistance, consider these signs of addiction
- You persistently think about taking or finding more Ativan
- You need more of the drug to get the same euphoric effect
- When attempting to quit or cut back, you suffer from withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, anxiety, or cravings
- You experience outbursts of emotion or mood shifts
- You withdraw from family members and friends
Withdrawal symptoms from benzos -- like Ativan -- can be lethal, which is why an experienced, medically directed lorazepam detox is crucial. Trying to end the addiction alone is unsafe and never encouraged. Instead, go to Sunrise Detox Center for the specialized treatment you have a right to.
