Benzo Detox

Benzodiazepine Detox

*Benzo Detox treatments are only available at our Phoenix, AZ and Denver, CO locations.

You didn’t mean to get hooked on Xanax or any one of the other benzodiazepines. You took it to calm your nerves and anxiety; to stop your panic attacks or to get some sleep. You took it because your doctor recommended it and it worked, at first. But, before you knew it, you were taking more and more. It wasn’t working for you anymore, and try as you may, you could not stop it even by trying to wean down very, very slowly. You know the rest of the story: you try many different ways to get off these drugs, but nothing seems to work. The medications have a grip on your mind, your body and your soul. So here you are, looking for help to stop your benzodiazepine dependence. We are glad you found us. The Coleman Institute can help.

The Coleman Institute now offers an advanced medical treatment for addiction to benzodiazepines like Xanax.

Dr. Coleman’s method includes using Flumazenil to flush the benzodiazepines out of your system quickly and to reduce cravings. Patients are usually able to complete the detox as an outpatient in about eight days, instead of the weeks or months of turmoil they go through, trying to self-detoxify.

By using low doses of Flumazenil, many patients experience much milder withdrawal symptoms. Often, there are no panic attacks and no insomnia. Some patients are calm and almost peaceful as the benzodiazepines are pushed completely out of their systems. Patients are usually amazed when their drug screens come back as negative, often after only 5-7 days.

Some patients do have an increase of withdrawal symptoms during the detoxification, but we are usually able to find medicines that help with these symptoms.

Most patients should expect some Post Acute Withdrawal Symptoms for a few months after the detoxification, as their brain continues to heal.
