Find Addiction Rehabs Releases Information and Resources on Ambien Rehab
Boca Raton, Florida -
Find Addiction Rehabs (FAR), a company based in Boca Raton, FL that offers helpful resources on addiction treatment and rehab, has released new resources about the prescription drug Ambien, the possibility of developing dependence and addiction, and the provision of rehab for Ambien addiction. In another newly released article, they indicate the signs that a particular person is addicted to this powerful sleeping prescription drug. And in a third article, they look at the withdrawal symptoms for people with Ambien addiction.
Ambien is a sedative-hypnotic drug that is prescribed as a sleeping pill. It has been marketed as a less addictive alternative to habit-forming sleeping pills, such as benzodiazepines but this advertising has been found to be false because Ambien has been observed to result into substance abuse. Ambien works by activating GABA neurotransmitters, which act to slow down the central nervous system (CNS), which is why it is provided for short-term treatment of chronic insomnia. It is available in two forms, which are: the quick release form to help a person go to sleep; and the extended release form to help a person maintain sleep. Both forms of Ambien can result into misuse and addiction when used for long periods of time.
Ambien rehab programs have five phases. The first phase is the intake where a counselor will ask the patient about previous experiences with rehab, past experiences with drugs, other drugs being taken, other challenges in life, co-occurring disorders, and how long the patient has been struggling with Ambien addiction. Phase two is the detox process, which is monitored by a medical professional. Phase three is the inpatient treatment. Phase four is the reevaluation, which is done during the last day of treatment. And phase five is the aftercare.
In the second article, they offer information on the signs of Ambien addiction. There are a number of behavioral signs that indicate a person has become addicted to Ambien. These include: frequent blackouts; strange behavior with no memory; hypersexual behavior; uninhibited talkativeness and sociability; changes in physical appearance and a lack of personal hygiene; and sleepwalking or other sleep activities. Physical signs of Ambien addiction include: headaches the morning after; bloodshot eyes; stomach pain; diarrhea; impaired balance and coordination; heartburn; appetite changes; weakness; shakiness; and pain in joints or muscles.
And lastly, it is important to know the withdrawal symptoms experienced by people who are dependent on Ambien. Six of the most frequent withdrawal symptoms are: stomach problems ranging from mild stomach cramps and nausea, to more severe symptoms like vomiting and indigestion; rebound insomnia, which is to be expected because the person has depended on the drug to get to sleep; irritability as evidenced by the person’s inability to ignore small annoyances; anxiety, which is partly due to irritability and lack of sleep; high blood pressure, and severe symptoms, including depression, dangerously high fevers, memory loss, hallucinations, seizures, psychosis, and suicidal thoughts. These withdrawal symptoms will typically last for a few days but the longer the person was addicted to Ambien, the longer the withdrawal signs will last.
