Benzos — with the full medicinal name of benzodiazepines — are prescribed to patients who suffer from seizures, sleep disorders, and anxiety attacks. The potency of most benzos makes the drugs generally dangerous for use due to a high chance of addiction or overdose.
Benzos routinely prescribed across the country include:

Health Problems Caused by Benzodiazepines Addiction
Benzos are usually prescribed by doctors because they are effective at treating certain conditions, not because they are safe. In fact, if you are prescribed a benzo, then your doctor should have discussed a long list of potentially hazardous side effects with you. Using illegally manufactured benzos is all the more dangerous, as you cannot be certain what other substances might be laced into a “benzo” dosage.
Side effects and health conditions caused by benzo use or addiction vary, such as:
- Dizziness, nausea, indigestion, and vomiting
- High blood pressure
- Major depression and anxiety attacks
- Migraines and body aches
- New or worsened sleep disorders
- Psychological breakdowns and panic
Holistic Approaches to Benzodiazepines Addiction Treatments
When someone becomes addicted to benzos, it can feel as if they are losing control of their lives. Without repeated dosages, withdrawal symptoms can kick in and be dramatic, which forces the user into a harsh schedule of benzo use. The problem is the dosage will need to steadily increase, rising the chances of a life-threatening overdose each time.
We have found that holistic drug addiction treatments can be extremely effective for challenging benzo addiction. You will not only find a way to undo your cycle of drug abuse, but you will also find internal strength and external tools to regain control of your life and find confidence again.
Examples of some of our most popular holistic therapies include:
- Adventure therapy
- Chemical dependency treatment
- Equine-assisted therapy
- Group therapy
- Life skills coaching
- Sound therapy
