Ativan Addiction Treatment

Due to the fact that Ativan is such a highly addictive drug, we urge you to refrain from attempting to quit on your own.

This is because of the withdrawal symptoms that may be experienced when someone who has been using the drug for a long time suddenly stops.

The severity of these Ativan addiction withdrawal symptoms will differ and in some cases it can be life threatening. The best way to treat this illness is by getting treatment inside a drug rehabilitation centre.

In drug rehab, patients will experience a supervised medical detoxification, which will help to remove all the harmful toxins of Ativan out of the body and it also helps minimise and reduce the effects of any withdrawal symptoms that may be experienced.

Once the detox has been completed, patients will undergo various counselling and therapy methods.

These include individual counselling and group therapy, which will help educate and teach the patient to why they became addicted in the first place and also, how they can avoid using Ativan in future.

The length of the stay in drug rehab will be determined by the severity of the Ativan addiction suffered, however there is a minimum requirement that patients stay in treatment for 4 weeks.

Once the stay in rehab has been completed, patients may also go into an aftercare program, which includes outpatient treatment and a stay in a halfway house with each being very effective in helping patients stay clean and sober.
