When someone is addicted to prescription medications like benzodiazepines, illegal drugs or alcohol, – removing the chemicals from the body – is one of the first steps toward recovery.
Benzodiazepines are medications used for symptoms such as insomnia, panic attacks and anxiety. They include Valium, Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin and Restoril. These medications attach to brain cells called GABA receptors; GABA is a naturally-occurring substance that helps people feel calm. When you take benzodiazepines, you can become dependent on them, so stopping these medications means the body responds with symptoms of withdrawal such as severe anxiety and restlessness. By utilizing ADF plus NP1K the patients withdrawals symptoms are less severe.
