addiction therapy group takes place during klonopin addiction treatment programKlonopin is part of a class of drugs known as benzodiazepines (benzos). Doctors prescribe Klonopin to treat seizures, anxiety, and panic disorders. Klonopin works in your brain to relax and calm your nerves, but it can become habit-forming if taken for an extended period or if not taken as directed. If you or your family member is battling a substance use disorder that involves Klonopin or another benzodiazepine drug, Clarity Way is a benzo addiction treatment center in Hanover, PA that can help you recover.

About Klonopin

Klonopin is the brand name for clonazepam. As a benzodiazepine, this drug is highly prescribed in the United States to treat a variety of conditions. These include anxiety, panic, insomnia, muscle spasm, seizure, and epilepsy.

One of the most-prescribed class of drugs on the market today, benzos have helped millions of people lead higher-quality lives. But drugs like Klonopin have their disadvantages, too. It’s easy to become dependent upon Klonopin if the conditions are right. At Clarity Way, treatment for Klonopin addiction addresses any underlying mental health disorders, through a dual diagnosis treatment program or anxiety treatment program.

Symptoms of Klonopin Addiction

If you’re questioning your usage of Klonopin, or if you suspect a family member may be misusing this drug, there are signs and symptoms you can watch for, including:

  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Slurred speech
  • Confusion
  • Lack of coordination

If left untreated, Klonopin overdose can lead to a deadly coma. Someone who chronically misuses this drug may face symptoms similar to those they had before they began taking it. These include increases in anxiety, overall weakness, and headaches. If you’re worried about the effect that Klonopin addiction has on you or your family, a Klonopin addiction treatment program may be the answer.

Detoxing from Klonopin

Detoxification from Klonopin should only be attempted under medical supervision, such as during a stay at Clarity Way, one of the most efficient Klonopin addiction treatment programs Hanover, PA, has to offer. During a medical drug detox program, the drug will be weaned out of your system gradually to prevent undesirable withdrawal symptoms. Typically, your clinician will lessen your dosage over time until you cease taking the drug altogether.

There is a whole host of uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms that can present themselves if you stop taking this drug suddenly and without medical supervision. These include sleep disturbance, hand tremors, profuse sweating, panic, nausea, dry wretching, and heart palpitations. Many of these symptoms can last up to 14 days after you stop taking the drug. Others, such as increased anxiety, may continue until you receive treatment. More severe withdrawal symptoms may affect people who have been taking higher doses of benzos, or who have been taking the short-acting brands.

It’s vital to reach out for help when trying to detox from benzodiazepine drugs such as Klonopin. Anything else may be deadly.
