Triazolam & The Brain
The basic purpose of Triazolam is to help you feel calm. However, regular use of Triazolam can cause changes in the brain. Let’s take a look at how this drug works in the first place.
Triazolam is a benzodiazepine. Benzodiazepines work as anxiolytics by creating hypnotic and amnesia-like effects. Particularly, this class of drugs works by interacting with neurotransmitters in the brain, affecting the way nerves communicate between each another.
By taking Triazolam you increase Gamma Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) activity in the brain. This way, the activity of nerves become suppressed to block any feelings of anxiety. While Triazolam is designed to alleviate anxiety and insomnia, it is not recommended for long term because it can cause physical and psychological dependence and addiction. Inn fact, long term use of Triazolam has been associated with many negative effects on the brain such as:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Brain fog
- Brain zaps (feeling of an electric shock in the head)
- Impaired thinking, memory, and judgment
- Lack of coordination
- Muscle weakness
- Slurred speech
If Triazolam use causes obsessive thinking or if it is causing problems in your work and social life, you may need professional help. Call us at 1-877-435-2982, and we can help you to decide what steps you can take next.

Main Signs of Addiction
Addiction profoundly changes a person’s character and behavior. In most cases, there is little chance it goes unnoticed. Often, the signs are right in your face.
For example, a person dealing with a drug problem often become self-isolated or distant. In other cases, physical signs can manifest. In still other situations, a person’s mood can fluctuate from open and friendly to downright mean. Triazolam addicts often go through an emotional roller-coaster. One minute they may be happy, and then the next minute they can get angry and/or depressed.
When you suspect that an addiction problem might be present, these are some clues you can look for:
- Taking larger doses of Triazolam than those recommended by your doctor.
- Taking more Triazolam in order to feel the same effects as when you first started to use it.
- Frequent cramps in your abdominal area and other areas of your body.
- Severe headaches as a result of limited access to Triazolam.
- Daytime anxiety syndrome.
- Uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms (vomiting, sweating and uncontrollable shaking) when Triazolam is discontinued.
If you or a loved one experiences these physical and behavioral symptoms, it’s likely that a drug problem is present.
Even so, there is no room for panic.
Addiction is a disease which can be managed through a proper medical intervention in a clinical setting. For help determining the best type of treatment for you or a loved one, reach out as soon as you’re able. We are here 24-7, day or night, at 1-877-435-2982.

Getting the Best Addiction Treatment
You can choose from a wide variety of treatment settings, duration of treatment, location, and therapies included… But, in order to get the best Triazolam treatment possible you need a tailor made program. Finding the right fit increases your chances of recovery success. In order for a recovery program to work, it needs to be specialized.
The following elements need to be examined when a specialized treatment program is conducted:
- history of drug abuse
- past trauma
- personal and emotional issues
- other root causes of addictive behavior
- how much/long/often is drug (ab)used
- unique treatment goals
The Importance of Treatment Setting
There are TWO MAIN TREATMENT ALTERNATIVES for overcoming addiction.
OPTION 1: Residential inpatient treatment allows you to spend the entire day and night in a clinic or a hospital during the treatment process. Inpatient facilities offer psychotherapy and engage you in healthy activities. Residential treatment is especially helpful when you undergo detox. Addicts in this type of setting are carefully monitored and provided with a 24/7 medical care. One of the many benefits of inpatient treatment for Triazolam addiction is the opportunity to live in a safe and drug-free environments that lowers the risk of relapse.
Residential programs can last from minimum 28 days up to 90 days or even longer when needed. The length of treatment is usually determined by the severity of your addiction problem and the progress during treatment. The cost for treatment varies according to the facility and the services included in treatment.
- Standard 30-day inpatient addiction treatment might cost you between $20,000 – $25,000, or around $800 per day.
- State subsidized programs start from $2,000 for a 30-day stay.
- 60 and 90-day recovery programs can cost you, on average, up to $60,000.
OPTION 2: Outpatient treatment allow you to continue with daily activities and still attend treatment. This type of recovery program offer lots of flexibility but requires strong commitment. Nonresidential treatment allows you to return to your day-to-day life and still engage in structured, targeted, and effective treatment. Outpatient programs are cheaper and will cost you on average around $5,000 for a three-month program, or around $150 per day. The price tag depends on how often you visits the center each week and how long you stay.
What happens during rehab?
Despite the differences and variations of treatment there are some therapies that you should be offered at any reputable rehab facility. These include:
Medication Assisted Treatment
Integrated or Dual-Diagnosis Therapy (or referral)
Relapse Prevention Training

The First Step of Recovery From Triazolam Addiction
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” – Lao Tzu
It is very difficult for those addicted to benzodiazepines such as triazolam to achieve and maintain long-term abstinence without medical help and treatment. Triazolam addiction does not develop overnight and therefore it cannot disappear overnight. Research shows long-term Triazolam use actually changes brain function, causing you to crave the drug even more, making it increasingly difficult to quit. Medical treatment is the first step of recovery from drug addiction and it usually contains the following elements:
Evaluation during which doctors will examine your medical history and test you for drug presence. During evaluation expect to do a toxicology screening and go through a psychiatric evaluation, usually facilitated by a board-certified psychiatrist. Evaluation will take from 1-3 hours to complete. Expect to talk extensively about your drug use.
Detoxification is the removal of all toxic substances – including Triazolam – from the body. The usual cost of detox is about $300 to $800 a day.
Therapy is the process during which you’ll receive medications and psychological counseling to understand the causes of your addiction and eliminate negative and self-harm behavior patterns. Recovery programs usually include the following types of therapies:
- Personal or individual therapy
- Family therapy
- Educational classes
- Relapse prevention
- Life skill classes
Aftercare is a form of ongoing treatment for addiction that continues after leaving the rehab facility. Aftercare may involve programs such as therapy, community living, or sobriety management with the help of medications. The main goal of aftercare services is to make sure you are on the right track and do not fall back into old habits.
If you need to talk to someone who understands the recovery process, or if you would like more information about finding the right recovery center, call us at 1-877-435-2982. We are always available to take your call.
The Best Way to Treat Triazolam Withdrawal
Triazolam withdrawal syndrome is caused by regular, repeated use of Triazolam. This illness is characterized by intense chemical dependence and neurotoxic damage that might cause long term disability. The process can be quite unpleasant, and for some, even dangerous. For this reason, medically supervised detox in an inpatient rehab center is advised to ensure safety.
Once you’ve developed dependence on Triazolam, the brain relies on it to keep feeling normal. So, once you stop taking Triazolam, your brain becomes imbalanced. It has to work to readjust natural chemicals that regulate mood without this medication. In this way, withdrawal symptoms are your body’s natural way of trying to restore its balance. Common withdrawal symptoms from triazolam discontinuation include:
- increased heart rate
- muscle cramps
- nausea and vomiting
- uncontrollable shaking
NOTE HERE: It usually takes between 4 (four) weeks to (6) six months to withdrawal from Triazolam.
Depending on the severity of dependence, medical professionals may treat withdrawal discomfort with a less potent benzodiazepine. They may use this Equivalent Benzodiazepine Calculator. While detoxing from tTiazolam your doctor may also switch you to a long-acting benzodiazepine. This type of benzos stay in the body longer, so you need less frequent doses. Over time, your doses are tapered down until you no longer need any medications to prevent withdrawal symptoms. Some benzodiazepines used during withdrawal may include:
Do not try to withdrawal from Triazolam at home on your own because you risk hurting yourself. Risks of at home Triazolam detox include:
- high blood pressure
- irregular heartbeat
- severe anxiety, depression, or suicidal thoughts
- social phobias
If you are experiencing or believe you are about to undergo Triazolam withdrawal, seek medical assistance immediately. A professional detox center can help you avoid dangers during detox. Call now 1-877-435-2982 . We’ll help get you the help that you need.
How Did I Get Addicted?
There are several different components that contribute to the formation of addiction. Experts outline the following six contributing factors to drug problems.
1. Genetic Predisposition
Experts believe that some forms of addiction are deeply rooted in our makeup. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), about half of a person’s tendency toward addiction can be blamed on genetics. Medical studies link genes to:
- Intensity of drug response.
- Vulnerability to specific drugs and substances of abuse.
- Decreased ability to feel negative effects of drugs.
- Speed of drug reaction (slower/quicker)
Your surroundings have a strong influence over drug use and abuse. Before it becomes a disease, addiction is a repeated behavior. Since behaviors are learned and accepted from the environment, it is natural for people to become what they are surrounded by. For example, a child who grows up in a home where drugs and alcohol are present is more likely to become an abuser when s/he grows up.
When substance abuse is often present in one’s reality, the use of psychoactive substances becomes normalized. This makes the person feel as though abuse is both common and harmless. Additionally, living in stressful situations cause some people may turn to drugs in order to soothe their fears and worries. Similarly, using Triazolam can seem a great way to fit in or provide emotional relief for some individuals.
Traumatic experiences in life may include:
Physical, sexual, and verbal abuse
Loss of a family member
These experiences can leave their mark on a person’s mind and emotions. Individuals who are often exposed to stress are the first ones to reach for psychoactive substances and drug abuse. The National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) reports that one in four American children experience at least one event like this prior to the age of 16.
4. Mental Illness
Mental illness and drug abuse are strongly correlated. The National Alliance on Mental Illness reports that more than one-half of all drug abusers are dealing with a mental health problems. Some people abuse Triazolam as they attempt to manage the distress and pain felt by a mental illness. Mental health issues go hand in hand with substance abuse, and once the connection has been forged, people need medical help to break it.
5. Peer influence
Young people reach for drugs when their friends do. Using drugs allows teenagers to fit in with their group. But just as teens, adults can also be influenced by the people they live and are surrounded with. If one partner uses drugs, the other might join in.
The way we respond to a situation defines our character and sometimes a reaction to a difficult event might just lead to substance abuse. Some people have an impulsive nature and they react without thinking rationally. Impulsivity like this is often the main reason for drug experimentation. Addiction studies found a connection between drug use and personality factors linked to “poor self-control” and “difficult temperament.” Genetic make up might not make an individual experiment with drugs, but when that individual takes Triazolam, the use might quickly spin out of control due to these underlying personality factors.
How to Help Someone With A Triazolam Addiction
Those who face drug addiction problems are usually unmotivated for treatment. In fact, drug addiction facilities regularly receive calls from desperate friends and family members seeking advice regarding loved one who are unmotivated and/or unwilling to make a change.
What can you do as a concern loved one?
There are several options available for people seeking help.
1. Attend a 12-step program such as Narcotic Anonymous Family Groups NAR-ANON. These type of programs advocate loving detachment, acceptance of your powerlessness to change the problem, and group support.
2. Plan an intervention during which you’ll work with a professional to encourage your loved one to enroll in treatment. This meeting aims to show your loved how his/her Triazolam has affected their life-and the lives of those around them. NOTE: You cannot force your addicted loved one to go to rehab. Instead give him/her a real-world view of what happens each time they get high on Triazolam.
3. Try Family therapy. This type of psychological counseling will help you improve communication and resolve conflicts. Family therapy is usually guided by a psychologist, clinical social worker or licensed therapist.
4. Use the Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT)Model. This approach teaches family members strategies about how to motivate and support their loved ones sobriety. During CRAFT training you’ll learn how to use positive reinforcement and negative consequences to discourage Triazolam abuse.During the sessions you’ll also learn strategies to decrease stress and focus on the positive aspects of your life. The CRAFT therapist will teach you how to identify and anticipate potentially violent situations, by recognizing their “cues” so that you can take immediate actions before getting hurt. Finally, the end goal of CRAFT training is finding the most effective ways to suggest your addicted loved one to enter treatment.
5. Avoid moral judgement and conflicts while talking to your loved one. Read up on the medical condition of addiction. Understand the impact of drugs on the brain. Understand the medical treatments and protocol.
6. Practice tough love, set boundaries and refuse to enable your loved one’s addiction.
7. Offer support during treatment. Help your loved one on his/her path to recovery by following the advice of their addiction counselor. If needed, participate in the treatment process as well.
