Youngtown, Arizona -
Emerald Isle Health & Recovery, which is based in Sun City, AZ, is proud to point out that benzodiazepine addiction treatment is one of their specialties, which is evidenced by their high efficacy and results in treating this kind of addiction. This is a class of drugs that includes the popular Valium and Xanax, plus the lesser known Ativan, Librium, and Klonopin. All of these drugs are capable of causing death during withdrawal if dependence is severe, and if detox is not done correctly, in a medical setting. In addition, the staff at Emerald Isle have also released an updated resource guide on bipolar treatment in the State of Arizona and another article showing their suitability as a residential treatment facility.
Benzodiazepines are sedative hypnotic depressants, which can only be available legally with a prescription. They are typically prescribed in the US for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder, insomnia, panic disorders, and other mood disorders. Benzodiazepine may also be used in monitored medical settings to alleviate severe muscle spasms, decrease certain withdrawal symptoms, for the treatment of cerebral palsy, and to minimize stress and anxiety in patients who will be undergoing invasive surgeries.
Nevertheless, benzodiazepines are highly controlled Schedule IV substances even in such medical applications because they tend to be very addictive and can cause physical dependence over time. This type of drug stimulates the Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) neurotransmitter, which is a chemical in the brain that is responsible for feelings of sedation and calmness. That is why benzodiazepines are often used for anxiety disorders. It can also cause drowsiness, which can be used by people with sleep disorders, particularly insomnia. These drugs may also help with other mental heath issues, such as panic disorders.
The problem is that their calming effect makes them attractive to people who don’t have any medical need for them. And even for those who need them, using them in higher dosages or for longer than recommended will lead to the development of physical and psychological dependence on the drug. And while benzodiazepine overdose is rare on its own, it is possible for people with respiratory depression who don’t get the proper medical help, and it is also possible when mixing them with other substances.
Meanwhile, Emerald Isle also offers one of the leading Arizona bipolar treatment centers. Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that can result into extreme and sudden mood swings. It includes emotional highs, which are known as mania or hypomania, and emotional lows, or depressive episodes. In the US, 2.8 percent of the adult population has bipolar disorder and when left untreated, it can gradually become worse over time. Unfortunately, it is difficult to diagnose bipolar disorder but knowing the signs and symptoms can be a start.
The exact causes of bipolar disorder have not yet been full understood but some factors have been observed to play a role in its development, such as having a family history, having mental or behavioral health problems, and having substance abuse or addiction issues.
