Sleeping Tablet Rehab
When sleeping tablets are taken not taken under medical supervision as prescribed there can be drastic repercussions, there is always a chance that if combined with other medications or alcohol that respiratory failure could occur.
If users have found that the frequency and quantity of sleeping pills they take has increased even though it may affect them less, they more than likely have developed an addiction. This tolerance is most prominent when, upon attempting to stop taking the sleeping tablets, they experience withdrawal symptoms.
Sleeping tablets can create dangerous calming effects when abused and this can manifest in many ways, for example poor judgement and loss of movement. Sadly, as a user’s body becomes accustomed to the drug it develops tolerance and a higher dose is needed to produce the same effect. This means that over a period of time the benefits lessen as the dose needs to be raised.
Most people begin to use sleeping tablets for very legitimate reasons, but unfortunately many GPs do not recognise, or do not challenge their patients when they continue to request sleeping tablets for a long period of time. It doesn’t take long before the usage has grown out of control and some will realise that they have a problem they are unable to overcome by themselves. Of Couse a GP isn’t the only outlet to acquire these tablets; they are readily available in many places, over the internet, herbal shops, supermarkets and chemists.
Abusers would initially need to detox from this drug, generally working on the medical reduction process with the support of a medical team, and then there should be a period of rehab. There are many different programs which may be suitable for clients, and these include cognitive behavioural therapy. A rehab facility will have counselors who are intimately familiar with sleeping tablet addiction. These therapists can provide individual counseling, group counseling and therapy for users of sleeping tablets and many will use workshops tailored to users of prescription drugs.
