24/7 Benzodiazepine Hotline in Colorado
If you or a loved one is in Colorado and is struggling with benzodiazepine abuse, the best first step you can take is contacting The Recovery Village’s free, confidential helpline at 855-789-9197. Our team of addiction professionals specializes in helping people throughout Colorado including in the areas of Boulder, Denver, Colorado Springs and statewide.
We can help answer your questions and talk through any concerns.
Benzodiazepines are a class of drugs that are commonly abused and include the brand name drugs Ativan, Klonopin, Valium, and Xanax. People are often prescribed these drugs to treat conditions such as anxiety and panic disorders, but even using them as prescribed can lead to abuse and addiction.
Benzos are also often used only recreationally, and then an addiction quickly follows.
Frequently an addiction to benzodiazepines can occur within just a few weeks of using this class of prescription drugs, and unfortunately all too often when an addiction like this goes untreated it can lead to a fatal overdose.
Prescription drug abuse can lead to feelings of hopelessness, and people often want to stop using these drugs, but they don’t know where to turn, which is why a 24/7 benzodiazepine helpline can be such a valuable resource.
When you’re addicted to drugs like benzodiazepines, it can seem like you don’t have options to beat your addiction, but in reality, one phone call has the potential to change your life.
While calling our 24/7 free, confidential benzodiazepine hotline can be one of the most pivotal decisions you make in your life, if you or someone near you if facing a potentially dangerous or life-threatening situation or a medical emergency, it’s important that you don’t contact us and instead contact an emergency services provider such as 911. Signs of a benzodiazepine overdose can include slurred speech, seizures, extreme fatigue, confusion, slow or labored breathing and more.
If you’re not facing a life-threatening situation, the free Colorado benzodiazepine hotline can help you or your loved one get into the appropriate treatment program that will offer you the best chance for a successful recovery.
What Questions Will You Be Asked When You Call Our Benzodiazepine Helpline?
You may feel nervous or apprehensive about calling a benzodiazepine helpline, and that’s normal, so we like to prepare people for what they can expect when they contact us. While the call is confidential, the questions you’re asked when calling our Colorado benzodiazepine hotline are important to help determine the best treatment program and options for you as an individual.
These questions can include first and foremost whether you’re in an emergency situation. If so, you’ll be asked to contact 911.
If not, questions will progress and will include the type of benzos you’re abusing, and how you take them. Specific questions might include how frequently you take benzodiazepines weekly or monthly, whether or not you combine them with other substances such as alcohol or opioids, and how long you’ve been taking benzodiazepines. These questions will help determine whether you need a medically-supervised detox, and also will help us uncover the length of a treatment program that might be best for you.
It’s also important for our team at our free helpline in Colorado to know if you have co-occurring mental conditions. As an example, people with anxiety often abuse benzodiazepines because they were prescribed them to treat this condition, and then their use might have gotten out of control.
Our treatment programs at The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake are unique because we work to treat not only the addiction itself but also the mental disorders that occur along with that addiction. This improves the chances for a successful recovery and a thriving life following treatment.
We’ll also ask whether or not you or your loved one are ready for treatment, and we’ll offer information as to whether our specific benzodiazepine treatment programs might be suitable for your needs.
Regardless of whether or not you seek treatment with us, your call will remain 100 percent free and confidential.
Our intake specialists can also answer questions you might have regarding addiction, as well as things like the cost of rehab and whether or not insurance pays for rehab.
So, can you start treatment when you call our Colorado benzodiazepine hotline?
The answer is yes, absolutely. Once our coordinators talk with you about your situation, they’ll discuss the best possible options for your needs. If you’re ready or your loved one is ready, the recovery process can start during the call. The team of specialists that operate our free benzodiazepine 24-hour hotline may be able to get you approved and started with detox within a day. We work with people throughout Colorado who have a benzodiazepine abuse problem. This includes locations such as Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder, Palmer Lake and across the entire state of Colorado.
We also have national addiction treatment resources for people who aren’t in Colorado.
