Why is a Benzo Addiction so Hard to Overcome?

Addiction No More ® No Comments

Overcoming Benzodiazepine Addiction

Benzodiazepines are one of the easiest drugs to become addicted to and one of the most dangerous drugs to detox from. If you are also taking an opioid-based medication make sure that your prescribing doctor is aware of the risks involved with adding benzos to your prescription regimen. Benzodiazepine-opioid interactions are very dangerous and can become life-threatening. 

Benzodiazepines are prescribed by doctors to help treat a wide variety of conditions related to the central nervous system. Benzos are not designed for prolonged use and should be relegated to no more than 4 weeks of continued use for most patients. There are some cases that can benefit from use-as-needed prescriptions with supervision, to ensure that dependency does not take hold.  25% of people that are prescribed benzos will develop a dependency on their medications, according to recent research. Once you have developed a dependency on benzos it can be close to impossible to stop the use without a medical detox. A full recovery can be achieved with the help of therapy and detox. Give us a call toll-free and we can give you the options for detox and treatment in your area.

Diazepam (Valium) anxiety, sedation, alcohol withdrawal, muscle spasm, seizure disorders long-acting benzo 20-100 hours

Estazolam (ProSom)  Prescribed for insomnia recommended only short term use medium acting 10-24 hours

Flurazepam (Dalmane) Prescribed for insomnia (short-term use only) 40-100 hour long-lasting benzodiazepine

Lorazepam (Ativan) Prescribed for anxiety, insomnia short-term use, seizures, and sedation. This is a medium-acting Benzo 10-20 hours

Temazepam (Restoril) Prescribed for insomnia for short-term use. Medium acting benzo 5-15 hours

Triazolam (Halcion) Prescribed primarily for insomnia on a short-term use prescription. Short-acting benzo 2-5 hours

If you are experiencing withdrawal from your medications, you may have become physically dependent on your prescription. Common benzo withdrawal symptoms may include flu-like pains, nausea and or vomiting, pounding heart, uncontrollable feeling of despair or panic, heavy bouts of perspiration, hallucinations, psychosis, muscle spasms, seizures, delirium, and grand mal seizures. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms consult a doctor immediately and then give us a call to discuss your options for treatment and or detoxification.

Benzo and opioid overdoses are on the rise in the country. If you are taking benzos and an opioid get help now before a benzo opioid interaction happens to you.

When combining Benzodiazepines and opioids there is a significant increase in the chances of accidental overdose. More than 30% of opioid overdoses are also testing positive for benzos and in 2015, 23% of people who died from opioid-related overdoses were also using benzodiazepines. People that are using both benzos and opioids are at a higher risk of having to be admitted into the hospital for a drug-related emergency. If you are using both benzos and opioids you are putting yourself in danger of a fatal overdose.

Do not stop any prescription medications without consulting your doctor first. Most doctors will help you taper down your medications to help avoid heavy withdrawal symptoms. If you have been prescribed short-acting benzos for longer than 4 weeks the chances of dependency go up exponentially.
If you are experiencing withdrawal symptoms and or starting to run out of your medications before the prescription is ready to be refilled give us a call. We can help you find freedom from this addiction and start you on the road to recovery. Do not wait until it is too late. Help is just a phone call away 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Drug Overdose Deaths Accelerating Due to COVID 19 (Coronavirus)

Addiction No More ® No Comments

Drug Overdose Deaths Accelerating Due to Covid 19 (Coronavirus)

Covid 19 has been hard on everyone but no group has been hit harder than those that have an underlying addiction to drugs or alcohol. Finding help for addiction during the coronavirus pandemic can be difficult but not impossible. Getting help before something adverse happens can be the difference between life and death. Depression and addiction to drugs or alcohol have been increasing every day as we enter another phase of lockdown or restrictions. 
As we continue with social distancing, restrictions, and lockdowns many people will feel added pressures that they would not normally have to deal with in everyday life. Significant restrictions on the social aspect of our lives have added many more stresses to our everyday life. With the added pressure of employment, making money, paying the bills, and housing, the overdose death rate has skyrocketed past all perceived estimates. 

If you know someone struggling with addiction or are struggling yourself,m there are solutions that can help you gain control of your life once again. Do not let COVID 19 Depression be the cause of your overdose of drugs or alcohol. There are solutions available to you. 




Overdose deaths rising again in 2020 is the highest recorded overdose rate ever recorded for a 12-month period.
Overdose deaths are continuing to rise in the country. The most recent survey done by the CDC from May 2019 to May 2020 estimates the overdose death toll at over 81,000 people for a 12-month period. This is the highest number of fatal overdoses ever recorded for a 12-month period. 

With the overdose death rate increasing in early 2020 before the Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID19), recent studies are starting to show an even larger acceleration of the overdose death toll for 2021. The pandemic has caused a significant disruption in the daily lives of most people throughout the country. It has hit those that struggle with substance abuse disorders hard and is one of the main contributing factors to the rise of overdoses in 2021.

Overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids appear to be the driving force behind the overdose death increase, which has risen  38.4% nationally over a 12-month period. With 37 of the 38 jurisdictions in The United States reporting an increase in opioid-involved overdoses, the need for detox and treatment could not be greater. Eighteen of these jurisdictions reported a staggering 50% increase in deaths involving opioids and 10 western states reported a 98% increase.

Overdoses involving cocaine have also increased in 2020 by 26.5%.  Earlier research has linked these deaths to co-use or contaminated cocaine with manufactured fentanyl or heroin. overdose deaths involving methamphetamines or psychostimulants have increased by 34.8% making the number higher than cocaine-related overdoses in the country. 
With the death toll rising and COVID 19 still running rampant in the country, the need for treatment programs that can offer “safe treatment during the pandemic” could not be greater. Most programs in the United States have adjusted their curriculum and program offerings to include a “covid safe treatment program” for addiction to drugs or alcohol. Treatment can be safe during the pandemic. Programs that offer quarantine spaces for new arrivals with medical supervision have the safest spaces for treatment during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Do not let yourself be a part of this rising death statistic. Get help today for your addiction to drugs or alcohol. There is help out there and we can help guide you to the best treatment program for addiction during the COVID 19 pandemic. Treatment can include telehealth and video conferencing to ensure the safety of the counselors and patients alike. Give us a call to discuss your options either in or outside of your area.

Covid 19 (Corona Virus) Emergency Drug and Alcohol Detoxification Warning

 At Home Detox Warning: 

Some drug and alcohol detoxification can be life-threatening. Call us now to discuss our at-home detox or the in-house detox options that are available in your area during social distancing and shelter-in-place orders. We are committed to helping those in need during this pandemic and emergency. Stay-at-home orders affect almost 90% of the population right now.  Stay-at-home orders affect almost 90% of the population right now.  

1-800-513-5423



Due to the Covid 19 response protocols that are being initiated throughout the country, in the form of stay-at-home orders, many people are left on their own, detoxing at home.  We have issued a general public warning to ensure the safety of people who have found themselves without the means to supply their addiction. This warning is in response to the many people who have been cut off from their supply of drugs, medications, or alcohol supply.

Addiction No More ®  can give you free detox advice, help, and tips to ensure a safe at-home detox if at all possible. For some medications, drugs, and alcohol, there may need to be some coordination with doctors and medical practitioners to ensure that at-home detoxification is medically safe. Do Not stop taking any of your medications without prior doctors’ approval as some medications can have serious and in some cases life-threatening side effects.

free detox centers near me, free drug detox, medicated detox, painless withdrawal
 
There are two types of withdrawal generally accepted amongst mental health professionals. Acute Withdrawal and Protracted Withdrawal.

Acute Withdrawal is when an individual suddenly stops the intake of the substance of choice. Once the drug has left the system, the symptoms left are usually the opposite of the effects the substance was providing. this, in turn, makes the withdrawal symptoms different for every drug. 
  • Nicotine: 2-4 weeks
  • Cannabis: 5 days
  • Alcohol: 5-7 days
  • Stimulants: 1-2 weeks
  • Opioids: 4-10 days; 
  • Benzodiazepines: 1-4 weeks, or 3-5 weeks if reducing dosage gradually
  • Methadone maybe 14-21 days up to a year for taper down programs
Protracted Withdrawal Symptoms that last longer than the normal withdrawal period for the drug that was in question are listed as protracted withdrawal or the more common names, post-acute withdrawal symptoms, Chronic withdrawal, or extended withdrawal.  
  • Anxiety and irritability
  • Difficulty focusing on tasks, concentrating, and making decisions
  • Difficulty in finding pleasure 
  • Impaired executive control
  • Depression
  • Problems sleeping, Insomnia 
  • Loss of libido 
  • Substance cravings
  • Physical symptoms that are otherwise unexplainable
Serious drug and alcohol withdrawal and detoxification warnings are issued for those who are dependent on the following substances including heavy alcohol abusers. 


Alcohol can be one of the most dangerous substances to detox from alone, at home without medical supervision. Depending on the addiction and length of use, alcohol detoxification can have serious life-threatening consequences if left alone. If you have been drinking daily, or in large quantities, please do not stop drinking abruptly before giving our helpline a call. We can help you determine if you will be able to detox without the need for a medically assisted detox.

1-800-513-5423

Methadone is an opiate replacement drug that must be tapered down. If you are prescribed this drug and facing financial hardship, talk to your provider. There may be some options available through the state in the form of emergency medical funding. 

Methadone Taperdown detox protocols are usually no more than 10 mg a week to ensure comfortable and medically safe detoxification. Do not quit Methadone cold turkey if you are prescribed it daily for maintenance. Always taper down slowly or seek a medical detox professional.  
Opioids, opiates, and Heroin, Normally are safe to detox from less the horrible withdrawal symptoms that can ensue 12 or fewer hours after the last dosage. We can assist with home detox for Heroin and opioids and give you some ideas for making the detox a bit more comfortable. If you are mixing opiate medications with benzodiazepines call us immediately due to serious health concerns with detoxification. 
Amphetamine detox will usually produce the opposite effects as the drug was intended to do. Sleep and healthy food can help more than anything through the detox process for amphetamines.

Dear Heroin

© 

Published: August 2008

I am angry…

You made me believe you were the cure for my every kind of pain.
I had you wrapped around me while I let you take control of my veins.

At this point in time I didn’t know who or what you turned me into,
But you made it impossible to get through days without you.

You had control of my body now, and if I didn’t choose you,
you made me feel so sick to where I was helpless, not knowing what to do.

By now I started doing the things I swore I would never do,
lying and stealing off the people who didn’t mean a thing to you.

You had me convinced that throughout my life you were determined to stay, 
that I did not have that option of turning and walking away.

Before you know it, everyone I loved saw this side of me that was hurting them inside.
Every time they questioned, I did what you taught me to do…lie.

I wanted to let you go and get you out of my way, 
so scared to tell someone, imagining what they would say.

Don’t want to be judged, it was a decision I would have to make, 
but I’ve wasted so much time; it was a little too late.

Being put in jail was something I knew it was going to come down to, 
but it made me free of relief knowing that I could not get to you.

It was a struggle, but a worthwhile fight
because now I am in control and you are out of my life.

Being sober turned me into the person I’ve always wanted to be, 
and that was the one day you were praying I would never see.

Now I am doing the good things I never imagined myself to do, 
and proudly I can say I am doing them without you.

Senate To Vote To End Insurance Coverage For Substance Abuse

Addiction No More ® No Comments

SENATE TO VOTE TO END INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE. OVER 1 MILLION PEOPLE COULD LOSE THEIR LIVES DUE TO LACK OF COVERAGE AND DENIAL OF TREATMENT BY 2026.

Insurance for drug rehabilitation is in jeopardy for millions of Americans.

Get the help that is needed immediately, to handle addiction for you or a loved one. In the coming weeks, we are going to find out if this bill will affect your ability to receive the treatment you or someone you love needs for an addiction or dependency on drugs or alcohol. If you wait to see what happens, it may be too late already for some states. The uncertainty in the insurance market has already caused many providers to drop out and see if they want to continue providing insurance to people in every state now.

Drug rehabilitation is expensive if you do not have insurance to offset the cost of inpatient treatment for addiction to drugs or alcohol. With the recent heroin and opioid epidemic, there is an urgency to get as many people to help as soon as possible before addiction ends their lives. The outlook of this new proposed bill in the Senate is grim for tens of millions of people and millions of addicts throughout our country. With states being able to opt-out of the essential benefit guaranty that was mandated through the Affordable Care Act, drug or alcohol addiction treatment paid for by your insurance provider in your state may be terminated with a waiver to the federal government.
rehabs that take insurance
Free drug rehab centers and missions are not enough to handle the ever-growing drug epidemic. Finding a free treatment center for addiction can be an arduous task, to say the least. Looking for a treatment program that can handle addictions, detox, and interventions that are free is almost impossible. With the new proposed cuts to the Medicaid programs, there will be much more of a need for communities to step up and help handle the drug addiction epidemic. Without addiction treatment, there will surely be a rise in crime violent and otherwise.

Do not wait to get the help you need. Addiction is a progressive disease and can have long-lasting consequences even after the addiction is under control.  Getting help sooner than later can help in recovery before health or legal issues are added to the list of things that need to be handled. 

Addiction No More ® is urging people with insurance through the marketplace to seek treatment immediately if they want to be able to utilize their insurance benefits. In the coming days, we are going to see what will happen with the healthcare system. This is a very scary prospect for the millions of Americans that were able to finally have health insurance coverage. 

If you are one of the fortunate people that have healthcare coverage through your work and are using drugs or alcohol in excess, seek treatment immediately. Your insurance is in question as well as those who seek insurance through the marketplace. With businesses being able to opt out of essential services, most companies will look at saving money at the expense of your health care coverage. 


The opioid epidemic is on the list of targets for the GOP.

With the recent opioid epidemic figures in, for therapy and aftercare, there will be a significant shortage of money available for the treatment of addiction. It is estimated that the opioid epidemic will cost hundreds of billions of dollars over the next 10 years. Cuts to the Medicaid program which pays for more than 40% of Buprenorphine (a life-saving opioid addiction drug) prescriptions,  could affect millions of lives nationwide. 
States being able to opt-out of ObamaCare protections. 

Under ObamaCare, there is a requirement that makes it mandatory for an insurance provider to sell insurance to the American public to offer Essential Health Benefits. These “Essential Health Benefits” include provisions that cover addiction treatment, mental health, preventative care, contraception, and emergency services. For a full list of benefits please visit https://www.healthcare.gov/coverage/what-marketplace-plans-cover.  The new Senate bill, if passed will end essential benefits for people covered under the Medicaid expansion programs by 2020. 

obamacare rehab centers

Insurance prices will be going up with fewer protections

We have done research into the new proposed plans and have come to the conclusion that the prices of healthcare within the privatized system, that the GOP is proposing will, in fact, raise rates and deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions.  The middle class once again will pay even more than they are paying with the Affordable Care Act for less coverage, with higher deductibles. 
Opioid Epidemic 

Our country is in the middle of an opioid epidemic and the prospect that these conditions could be denied insurance coverage could be a death sentence for thousands of people.  Those that lose coverage through the marketplace could be placed in high-risk pools and the funding proposed is inadequate to provide coverage for those who buy insurance in the individual marketplace. 
The overall impact of this bill that is being pushed through our Senate this upcoming week will impact the ability to use your insurance coverage to help offset the costs of rising drug or alcohol rehabilitation in the United States. The essential benefits program also requires that states follow strict guidelines in how they structure their Medicaid programs.  The states that opted out of the Medicaid expansion program are set to be hit the hardest and at lightning speed as predicted by many treatment providers that accept Medicaid. 

Medicaid expansion was playing a huge role in the battle against the opioid epidemic. In the 31 states that expanded Medicaid, there has been a significant decrease in people being admitted to the emergency rooms for addiction problems without insurance to cover the cost of treatment. In 2013, the number of uninsured people seeking medical intervention for their addictions were at 20% and that number has had a significant drop down to 5% in 2015 after just 2 short years of Medicaid expansion. 
The changes to the Medicaid system have changed the Medicaid system to a “Per Capita Cap” System. This type of system gives a lump sum for each enrollee with a set cap for services, or the individual states can opt for a block grant (a sum of money that the federal government sets that has no bearing on how many enrollees are insured through Medicaid). This is a completely different system than we have now where the federal government covers all of the treatment expenses for a Medicaid patient no matter the costs.

This new Medicaid proposal will surely be the end of many state-sponsored treatment options for our addicted family members and friends at the moment in their lives when they need our help the most.

States opting out of ObamaCare protections.

There are provisions in the new healthcare bill “Better Reconciliation Act of 2017” or ‘TrumpCare’ that make it possible for states not to cover substance abuse treatment at all. The TrumpCare bill being voted on Friday will make it possible for individual states to decide if they want to cover addiction treatment as part of their healthcare coverage plans or not. The bill being voted on will make it so critical areas see addiction coverage ended in the midst of an opioid epidemic.
Leana Wen, a Baltimore Maryland Health Commissioner stated shortly after the new healthcare bill was revealed “insurers can stop providing coverage for mental health services at the time of a public health emergency around opioid overdose. This will cost millions more lives.” 
Getting help for addiction is a phone call away. Our counselors are available to answer all your insurance questions, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. We will help you find the correct solution to handle any addiction to drugs or alcohol.  Do not wait until your insurance plan changes and the essential benefits package you thought you were entitled to changes or is taken away from you all together.

The Voice Of Addiction

© Carrie Roush

Published on March 2008

Well, it’s nice to finally meet you.
I’ve been waiting for your call.
I’ve noticed you’ve been crying,
And, I’ve watched you pace the halls.

Whatever has been hurting you,
I can make it disappear.
You know you have nothing to lose,
Nothing to live for, nothing to fear.

Thank you, for your invention.
I’ll be sure not to leave your side.
We’ll become very fast acquainted.
My naive child, there’s no use trying to hide.

I should probably introduce myself.
I am your very own addiction.
But, you can not be angry with me.
I am you own self-conviction.

I bet you feel rather stupid,
Falling right into my lap.
I’m a master at manipulation.
You’ll never escape my trap.

How does it feel to dance with the Devil?
For he and I are one in the same.
God, has completely abandoned you,
So, you might as well stay in the game.

Are you honestly going to try to beat me?
A useless battle if you want to know.
Go ahead and make an attempt.
Besides, I’m in the mood for a good show.

I guess, you think your special.
But, your sobriety has only lasted a year.
I’m still around every corner,
In the back of your mind
I’m your greatest fear.

I’ll always be your dirty little secret.
I won’t disappear over time.
Twenty years from now you may falter,
And, I’ll be the first thing that comes to mind.

A vicious cycle, that’s what your thinking,
But, I’m only speaking the truth.
I’m Satin’s weapon of mass destruction.
The silent killer of America’s youth.

It’s genius when you think of it.
Everyone’s looking for some Armageddon war.
But, what the fools don’t realize,
Is everyday Armageddon walks through their front door

America’s working class has been the subject of studies analyzing the large spikes in alcohol- and drug-related deaths over the last few decades, and churches and Christian-based recovery groups are playing a vital role in saving lives by helping people overcome their addictions.

“The church should have a role in helping people with any type of addiction. Depending on the congregation and their level of resources that help will vary. Some churches are taking an active role in developing in-house assistance and counseling while others that are not funded for this type of activity are partnering with people in their congregation who have a heart and vision for this type of ministry,” said Ray Perea, CEO and facility director of Revival Recovery Services in Apple Valley, California, in an interview with The Christian Post.
