Valium is a prescription drug used to treat anxiety, seizures, and muscle spasms. It is a long-acting benzodiazepine and has highly addictive qualities as a nervous system depressant similar to alcohol. Valium was once heavily overprescribed as a cure-all for any number of ailments, and as of today millions of Americans continue to battle a life-threatening drug dependency to this dangerous substance.
The longer someone takes Valium the harder it becomes to stop because it alters brain functions such as memory and behavioral control. Side effects include relaxation and sedation, which make it severely unsafe over long-term use. Once someone’s brain chemistry has adjusted to a Valium dependency, he or she will endure extreme physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms. Gradually, overuse significantly increases the chances of overdose.
The following are signs of unsafe Valium consumption and addiction:
- Elevated blood pressure
- Difficulty breathing
- Grand mal seizures
Unfortunately, valium is often taken in conjunction with other drugs or alcohol and the combination of these unsafe substances is deadly.
Treatment for Valium Addiction
If you are struggling with Valium addiction, rest assured it is treatable with inpatient rehab. However, it is crucial you seek help immediately to set yourself on a path to a healthy future. Attempting to detox from Valium without the help of licensed medical and mental health professionals can be life-threatening, which is why you absolutely cannot do so without proper supervision and treatment. Though your addiction to Valium may feel impossible to beat, recovery is just around the corner.
