Commonly prescribed by medical professionals to treat mental illness, anxiety, memory or sleep disorders; sedatives and tranquilizers have the same depressant effects on the brain, resembling the effects of alcohol intoxication. Meant to create sense calmness or reduce anxiety, abuse of these drugs can cause severe negative effects including, release of inhibitions, seizures, and delirium. The most widely-abused sedatives and tranquilizers include: Xanax, Ativan, Valium, Klonopin, and Anafranil. After a thorough clinical medical evaluation our Beacon HouseSM professionals will outline a program to meet your specific needs with the greatest outcome of success.
Addiction to sedatives is often linked to co-occurring mood disorders including anxiety and depression, or in some cases other addictions. As part of the Beacon House commitment of treating the whole person, our team of professionals will help to identify and treat these underlying issues.
Beacon House sedatives addiction treatment may be delivered for clients as inpatients, outpatients, or in extended care. All our programs also include experiential programs to help reintroduce clients to “real life” without alcohol, as well as Aftercare, and our alumni community.
