Fear of Getting Help

Fear is one of the most common reasons why people who struggle with Amobarbital avoid asking for help. People fear that the detoxification process will be too painful to bear, or that they simply won’t be able to go through it successfully. These negative emotions can completely paralyze you and keep your hands tied. Moreover, there’s a special bond between fear and drug problems. People who deal with potential cases of addiction face more intense feelings of fear than usual.


We all want to avoid pain.

Fear of withdrawal?

Fear can be overcome with understanding. Knowing what to expect during withdrawal can make your recovery journey less stressful. Here are three (3) ways to make the withdrawal process easier.

1. First, know that withdrawal is temporary. The discomfort during Amobarbital withdrawal should not scare you; it passes with time.

2. Second, know that you can go through withdrawal safely. Professionals can help you go through this process and address symptoms as they occur. Licensed detox clinics are known to help people successfully go through detox from barbiturates.

3. Finally, know that emotional support can help immensely. Turn to a friend or trusted support during withdrawal. Or, seek help from a medical facility. Staff members are trained to understand the process and the need for encouragement. So, while the doctors handle the body…staff can help you with your mind.

Amobarbital dependence blended with fear of withdrawal can keep you from the treatment you deserve. BUT, there’s a chance to turn your life around. Just CALL US to speak with someone about getting help during Amobarbital withdrawal. We are available 24 hours a day for your convenience and can inform you about what to expect during treatment.

Why does the body go through withdrawal?

Withdrawal occurs as the result of physical dependence. When you take Amobarbital over a period of weeks, months, or years your brain and body adapt; they begin to function “regularly” with it.  The brain must accommodate for the foreign chemicals, so it “slows down” some functions in the body and “speeds up” some others. So when you remove the drug from the system, it takes some time to reach balance again.

What’s really happening is that the symptoms that the drug was”blocking” start to manifest. This is why everyone who goes through Amobarbital withdrawal experiences a similar set of symptoms. These symptoms are best managed with medical help. You can expect any range of the following to occur during Amobartibal withdrawal:

  • agitation
  • anxiety
  • hallucinations
  • insomnia
  • nausea
  • rapid heart rate
  • restlessness
  • seizures
  • tremors or shaking
  • vomiting
  • weakness

These symptoms can linger for several days, weeks, even months, depending on the individual progress and treatment dynamics. The intensity of these symptoms depends upon how long you’ve abused Amobarbital, your age and health condition.

Understanding Dependence Vs. Addiction

We want to reiterate that Amobarbital withdrawal happens after you become physically dependent on the drug. Amobarbital withdrawal is a set of physical and psychological symptoms which occur after you stop using this drug. Withdrawal is different for each person. It may be hard and severe for some or moderate with mild, flu-like symptoms for others.

But how does dependence differ from addiction?

A person who’s just physically dependent can go through withdrawal and then let the drug go.

Addiction is a psychological dependence. Someone who is addicted needs to keep taking Amobarbital, even after it’s been removed from the system. Addiction makes you crave a drug, even when you don’t technically need it. So, addiction differs from dependence mainly in the mental state of the user.

Detox facilities assist dependent people in becoming drug-free. They provide medical and psychological assistance. Do not let the fear of Amobarbital withdrawal prevent you from becoming sober. Why not live the life you’ve always deserved?

Why did you start using Amobarbital?

The truth is that we can’t give a single reason or motive for taking drugs. Let’s take a look at some of the common reasons people reach for drugs at a certain point in life.

Experimentation. Young people and adolescents for example start to take drugs out of curiosity, pleasure and the need to “fit in the group”. The need for belonging and acceptance of the group drives adolescents to drug experimentation, which later on can transform into addiction.

Escape From Discomfort. Adults reach for drugs almost for the same reasons as adolescents, the need to experiment a certain sensation, to numb pain and or escape from a stressful situation become motives for drug use and abuse. In other words people take drugs to feel pleasure and avoid pain or dissatisfaction. In the beginning, Amobarbital gives  certain “peace of mind”, but this is only until the effects start wearing off.

Mirroring The Environment. While genetics makes up about 50% of the risk for developing a drug problem, many people use drugs because they see people around them using drugs. When you are raised in an environment where the use of drugs is normalized, it’s much more likely that you’ll use drugs, too.

Regardless of why you start using a drug…we all end up in the same position at the end. With repeated long term use, people lose control and end up being completely governed by the drug. This is the medical condition know as “addiction” and it is identified quickly:

  • Loss of CONTROL of drug use
  • CONTINUED use despite negative CONSEQUENCES
  • CRAVINGS, COMPULSION, and obsessions to use

Doctors, counselors, psychologists, and staff have been trained in the area of Amobarbital dependence and addiction to  guide you on a recovery journey. We offer you these 3 (three) steps to help you overcome your hesitation to ask for help.

Withdrawal Symptoms & Timeline

The duration and intensity of Amobarbital withdrawal are determined by:

  • The level of your tolerance.
  • Your age and health condition.
  • The frequency and length of your Amobarbital use.
  • The presence of another mental illness.

Symptoms of Amobarbital withdrawal are different for each person. You may not experience all symptoms, but you must prepare yourself for anything. The most common symptoms when withdrawing from Amobarbital may include:

  • agitation
  • difficulty sleeping
  • extremely high body temperature
  • hallucinations
  • respiratory depression
  • seizures
  • tremors and shakiness

The most intense Amobarbital withdraw symptoms usually occur 8-16 hours after the last dose and can last two weeks. The fact is that Amobarbital withdrawal can be severe and unpleasant. But, there are quality residential facilities that have medically trained staff who will make your withdrawal process as smooth and comfortable as possible. You only need to call us to put an end to the fear of Amobarbital withdrawal and addiction.

Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS)

However, Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS) can linger for several months after the last dose of Amobarbital. In these cases, the brain needs more time to heal from the neurocircuitry changes it has undergone under the influence of addiction. Difficulty with sleep and mood can continue for months or years after you quit Amobarbital.

Don’t Try It Without Help

Attempting to quit Amobarbital and going through the withdrawal process alone can be dangerous. Drug dependence and addiction are medical conditions that can be successfully managed in a controlled environment. Always seek help from a licensed detox clinic and/or a treatment center when you are ready to quit using Amobarbital.

They say, “Life begins at the end of the comfort zone.”

How To Withdrawal From Amobarbital Safely

If you want to avoid unwanted risks and dangers you should never attempt to withdrawal from Amobarbital at your home without medical supervision. The safest way to quit any drug – including Amobarbital – is to enroll into a medical detox and addiction treatment center. There are many treatment programs for Amobarbital withdrawal and addiction that differ in cost, environment, and length. When you are looking for a rehab program, make sure you explore your options well.

Treatment centers for Amobarbital addiction have helped millions of addicts get through the withdrawal symptoms safely, and they can help you too. When deciding on a treatment program, the basic options to choose from include:

1. Inpatient or outpatient program?

Inpatient rehabs, also known as residential rehabs, are structured with a full-time, daily routine. This usually includes regular sessions of group therapy, individual counseling, lectures, and many activities that aim to teach you how to live a drug-free life. Each patient has a personal therapist that helps him/her create a personalized treatment plan. These rehab programs are supervised 24/7.

Amobarbital outpatient rehabs include therapy sessions, meetings, and workshops that you attend for few hours a day. Then, you return home for the night. This type of program requires strong support network and motivation. Medical supervision is limited and you may need to withdraw from Amobarbital in another treatment setting before attending outpatient treatment.

2. Duration of treatment: 30, 60, 90 day programs

There is no fixed timeline for Amobarbital addiction treatment, but most addiction experts have established a 30 day minimum stay for inpatient rehabs. During this period people start to go through acute detoxification and stabilize. However, 60 and 90 day programs may reach higher success rate since they offer more time for treating psychological issues. While month’s long stays are standard for inpatient treatment, outpatient programs offer an average 10-16 weeks intensive program duration. Outpatient rehab can continue for 1-2 years after you begin.

3. A variety of therapies that in your treatment plan

Each rehab program includes a variety of therapies that may be added to your personal addiction treatment program. Here’s a list of some of them:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapeutic approach that teaches people how to cope with psychological problems, emotional distress and self-defeating behaviors. CBT techniques are oriented towards educating people in recovery about the connection between emotions and behaviors. In fact psychologists have discovered that our thoughts govern our emotions and that we act driven by the way we feel.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment (DDT) focuses on resolving any mental health issues that might have lead people to drug abusive behaviors such as anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and schizophrenia. This therapeutic approach pays an equal attention to these disorders as addiction because if left untreated, these problems might continue to push a person towards self-destructive behaviors.

Family Therapy
The purpose of family therapy is to engage family members into their loved one’s recovery. Since Amobarbital addiction is a disease which affects all family members, family therapy aims to repair broken communication patterns between family members.

Neuro- Linguistic Programing (NLP)
The core belief of this theory is that people build their perception from the experiences they get by their interactions with others. Each person develops his or her own map of the way they view the world, and therefore there is no single true view but a sum of subjective perceptions.

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a client-centered method which aims to help people understand the consequences of drug abuse and enter treatment. During the sessions you and your therapist will work together on overcome your resistance for addiction treatment.

The treatment you choose can make the difference between relapsing back to old behaviors or discovering a new path of lasting recovery. If you require information on our inpatient services, don’t wait any longer! Call NOW.

Dealing With Fear In Recovery

Maybe there’s not only the fear of Amobarbital withdrawal that stops you to live a sober life, maybe you are afraid of being in recovery. Sometimes, the fear of recovery is bigger than fear of withdrawal. And, this is completely normal! It has been a lot of time since your personality was wrapped up in Amobarbital abuse. So, it might be hard for you to imagine a free life, a life without cravings for Amobarbital, a life tied in chains of dependency and addiction.

This is completely understandable.

The idea of a person who is happy and sober can be frightening especially for someone who was struggling with addiction. So, this is the time when you need to measure the values in your life. But, keep in mind that people who are sober are no longer interested in hiding from fear, disappointing their loved ones, and choosing Amobarbital over life.

So, are you ready to start a new life?

You only need to make one crucial call.
