Understanding Chlordiazepoxide Addiction

Do you find yourself making choices that constantly compromise your moral beliefs and values? Addiction drives people to their darkest behaviors, making them do things they would never normally do. Even if done unintentionally, these actions can destroy the very core of a person. We know this. We’ve been there.

Chlordiazepoxide addiction can result in the following:

  • Legal problems (especially regarding child custody)
  • Health problems (ignoring your basic needs)
  • Relationship problems (separation, bitterness, and loneliness)
  • Financial issues (bankruptcy, theft, or incredible debt)

But, what makes a person become addicted in the first place? And how can they get better?

Experts believe that genetics makes up 50% of the risk for addiction, but not all those who use chlordiazepoxide will become addicted. That’s right. We’ll repeat. Some users may never develop psychological dependence, even if they use this medication regularly. Ultimately, addiction is influenced by many factors, including:

  • a person’s environment
  • a person’s individual physical response to drugs
  • the parents you grew up with
  • social and culture expectations of drug abuse

Feel as is addiction has warped your perception of reality? Don’t worry, you are not the only one feeling this way. It takes time and patience to see the true picture and to recover. But most importantly, addiction requires professional assistance and medical treatment.

Getting The Best Treatment

Each person is unique. Each of us has our own desires, experiences, and motivation.

So why would addiction treatment be one-size-fits-all?

While most addiction experiences are similar in their compulsive nature, they are different in the way people react to the effects of drug abuse and the time they need to recover. When you enter rehab, it is essential that the treatment facility takes into consideration your individual struggles with chlordiazepoxide addiction. In this way, the best possible treatment that you can get includes a personalized treatment plan. Good treatment should be designed according to:

  • your specific substance addiction history
  • co-occurring health conditions
  • social factors

This is crucial to successful treatment outcomes.

The best chlordiazepoxide treatment program is the one built upon your own needs and individual goals. However, there are three main types of therapies that most rehabs offer. These should include:

  • Counseling – Group, Individual, and Family Therapy.
  • Education – Classes about substances and their effects on the mind.
  • Medications – Diazepam (Valium) may be used to manage hallucinations and psychosis during withdrawal and melatonin or eszopiclone (Lunesta) to help those struggling with insomnia.

Types of treatment offered

Treatment for chlordiazepoxide addiction varies according to length, environment and cost. When looking for a solution to your chlordiazepoxide addiction, expect to come across the following main treatment options.

1. Inpatient addiction treatment

These programs are structured with a strong daily routine of group therapy, 12-step support groups, lectures, scheduled meals, and exercise. Inpatient rehabs provide people with a safe and controlled environment. Each addicted individual is assigned a personal therapist, with whom he/she works on creating a personalized treatment plan. They also provide professional expertise throughout the process, and 24-7 supervision.

Inpatient rehabs provide many treatment modalities. The most well known isCognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This therapy helps addicts explore their mental and behavioral patterns that led to drug abuse. CBT also teaches new healthy living habits. Besides CBT, inpatient addiction treatment usually includes the following treatment modalities:

  • 12-Step Programs
  • Art Therapy
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
  • Educational Lectures
  • Individual, Group and Family Therapy
  • Medically Based Treatment (MBT)
  • Meditation and Mindfulness Techniques
  • Psychotherapy/Counselling

2. Outpatient addiction treatment

Outpatient treatment does not require living at a facility. These programs are usually less expensive than inpatient programs and are most recommended for those who can’t leave their family, work or school obligations. Outpatient models requires attendance for several hours each day and then clients return home at night. These programs require high motivation but can be highly effective. If you choose an outpatient program, be sure that you have a strong support network focused on your treatment and recovery.

Why is inpatient treatment preferred?

Medical experts recommend inpatient treatment as a better option for those who want to remove the temptations from their surroundings. People who live with or around other addicts often need to LEAVE THE SITUATION COMPLETELY. Not only do different surroundings help keep you safe, a quiet environment can help you direct your focus and energy completely on recovery… without distractions.

Still, the severity of your addiction can help you determine which type of treatment best suits you. More mild cases of addiction might benefit from an outpatient clinic. You may also ask an advice from your addiction counselor or another professional to help you decide which type of addiction treatment to choose.

Everyone deserves to live a life of peace and happiness. If chlordiazepoxide is getting in the way, there is something you can do about it. Call and get connected! Let us help you become addiction-free.

I can’t pay for rehab

Many addicts don’t go to treatment due to the lack of financial resources. They simply avoid treatment as an option because they cannot afford it.

Solution #1: Call our helpline to find out if your insurance provides coverage for treatment. is an online platform where you have the opportunity to shop for affordable health insurance and compare prices. You might also find encouraging the fact that Medicaid has expanded its coverage to at least 5 million adults who are qualified candidates for addiction treatment. Additionally, Medicare covers the cost of substance abuse treatment as well.

Solution #2: Look into a payment plan or sliding scale payment, which allows you to pay for your treatment gradually, instead of all at once. If you’re serious about getting better…invest in yourself. You can borrow from a savings account, 401(k), friends, or family. Health care credit cards allow you to finance health care costs at lower interest rates and make monthly payments.

I can’t take off work

Running away from treatment doesn’t help anyone. Being dependent on a drug will negatively influence your work performance. Instead of waiting to hit  rock bottom, act right away and reach out for help. Call 1-877-978-3146 for a quick assessment of your situation and find out how much time it may take for you to recover from addiction for good.

Solution #1: Scared about losing your job over leaving for rehab? Don’t be. There are laws that protect you. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects all employees from discrimination on the basis of disability. And The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) protects the rights of employees – You can use up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave per year to seek medical treatment. This further allows you as an employee to keep your health benefits when getting treatment as during active working.

Solution #2: Ask your employer or HR Manager about Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs). Some workplaces can help you through the process of treatment, and will be happy to save your position for you. Look into your work benefits package or speak with the Human Resoures department for more information.

I can’t leave my family

It is hard to leave loved ones for a month, or more. But, how loving can a person be while under the influence? Drug abusers and their families suffer together. Choosing rehab can be the best solution to repair the broken connection with your spouse, partner, children, or dependent elderly family members.

Solution #1: Ask your closest friend or family member to help with your children and home responsibilities. With good management and support from loved ones you can concentrate on your inner work. This way, you can come back and be a better parent, spouse, or family member.

Solution #2: Good rehabs integrate family into therapy work. Specialized treatment facilities are designed to allow you to take children under the age of 5 with you. Call us to review program details and work on a solution that best answers your specific needs and circumstances.

The First Step Of Recovery

STEP #1: Decide to get help.

The need for recovery is initiated by the desire to change.

What usually stands in the way?…Fear of the unknown.

The best way to overcome your fear of treatment is to consider the benefits. Entering a structured residential treatment program:

  • lowers the chances of relapse
  • offers psychological and emotional support
  • offers a wide range of treatment options
  • provides round the clock care
  • provides a safe and drug-free surrounding
  • provides a medically assisted detox

When YOU (not your spouse, your kids, your parents) make the decision to get help…you start to get better. If you are dealing with an addiction, don’t wait another day. Call us now!

What are the next steps?

STEP #2: Finding a rehab

After you decide to quit chlordiazepoxide you’ll need to find a rehab that meets your needs. You can narrow down your choices by considering:

  • Inpatient vs. outpatient
  • Medical detox
  • Your budget or insurance options

For help locating the treatment programs for chlordiazepoxide addiction, call our toll-free hotline as soon as possible.

STEP #3: Initial assessment

Each residential treatment starts with an intake evaluation. You’ll be asked some questions about your substance use and health history. Assessment should include a medical and psychological evaluation, and may require drug testing. Assessment will result in an individual treatment plan.

STEP #4: Treatment

After the intake, you will go through a medically supervised detox if you are chlordiazepoxide dependent. Detox includes the use of prescription medications to address symptoms as they appear.

Then, the inner work begins. Rehab mainly consists of group, individual and/or family therapy. This can be the most challenging part of the rehab process. You begin to work through difficult emotions. It can be helpful to rely on the support of the staff and other people in recovery during this time.

NOTE HERE: Experts recommend medical supervision for most cases of significant drug problems. Inpatient programs provide 24-hour medical assistance. Sleeping in a residential setting can also lower your stress and help you concentrate on intensive therapy. Combined with medications and therapeutic follow-up…a rehab center can help you quit chlordiazepoxide for good.

STEP #5: Aftercare

The final step in the rehab process is to plan for life after rehab. You must decide how you will transition back into the real world. An individualized plan called a “Relapse Prevention Plan” should be created before discharge. Plus, aftercare may include sober housing, continued counselling, support groups, and outpatient follow up.

How Can You Help an Addict, Really?

We cannot make other people change.

It is useless to struggle with someone and believe that we can make them change. Forcing someone into rehab can result in unnecessary:

  • anger
  • frustration
  • hardship

…for both sides. Acceptance facilitates change. Acceptance that this will be the person’s decision and choice. So what can you do for an addict, really?

The CRAFT Model & Addiction Help

Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) is an approach that works to get addicts into treatment … with research to back it up. CRAFT involves meeting with a licensed clinical psychologist to train yourself and your family. During a 16+ week program, you’ll learn how to prepare to talk to an addicted loved one AND how to take care of yourself at the same time. During weekly CRAFT sessions, you will learn how to:

  • Cope with stress relating to the person’s drug use.
  • Communicate effectively with your loved one.
  • Avoid enabling destructive behaviors.
  • Identify true moments of change.
  • Encourage treatment enrollment.

REMEMBER: Providing a real supportive network for your loved one can make all the difference in the world for their recovery. As much as it pains us, only an addict can make a decision to seek treatment and do that for themselves. Otherwise, interventions for addiction treatment can prove fruitless.

Call us to talk through your loved one’s addiction and learn more about how our family program can help you and your loved one today.

Relapse Prevention & Long Term Sobriety

Addiction recovery requires constant work.

Unlike a broken arm, addiction doesn’t “heal” once a bone is set. Instead, addiction treatment continues when rehab ends. In fact, many people remain at a risk for relapse in the months that follow completion of a treatment program. Here are some common aftercare options.

  • Continued individual counselling
  • Group counselling
  • Sober living housing
  • Support groups with online or face-to-face meetings
  • Rehab alumni groups

Relapse is quite common during addiction recovery. But do not worry because it can be prevented and even if it happens that does mean that your recovery chances are lost. Try viewing at relapse as a learning experience. If you look at a slip positively, you’ll be able to see what went wrong and to adjust your behaviors for the future.

Call us today to learn more about how we address relapse. Our non-judgmental, compassionate staff are ready to answer your questions and get you the help you need today.
