Diazepam (Valium) Addiction Treatment
Across the United States, millions of people struggling with anxiety disorders are prescribed Diazepam, also known under the brand name Valium, each year. If you are worried that you have become reliant on Diazepam (Valium) or experience withdrawal symptoms upon ceasing consumption, you may benefit from addiction treatment and rehab.
Getting Help for Diazepam (Valium) Addiction
As a benzodiazepine, Diazepam (Valium) has soothing qualities that reduce anxiety. It is a fast-acting medication, taking effect in thirty to sixty minutes. When prescribed by your medical practitioner, Diazepam (Valium) is safe for a short time, but chronic use can lead to tolerance.
As tolerance to Diazepam (Valium) develops, you may find yourself in need of larger doses to experience the effects it has. Unfortunately, this could leave you depending on the drug, potentially leading to an addiction. Taking Diazepam (Valium) for longer than four to six weeks increases the likelihood of this, even when prescribed.
Symptoms of a Diazepam (Valium) addiction vary from person to person but can include:
- Ignoring responsibilities and obligations
- Withdrawing from friends and family members
- Being unable to stop using the drug
- Losing interest in hobbies
If you have begun to crave the calming effects that Diazepam (Valium) produces and find yourself taking larger doses of the drug, it’s vital to seek addiction treatment and attend rehab. Our highly experienced therapists and support workers are here to support you every step of the way.
How We Treat Diazepam (Valium) Addiction & Abuse
There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for treating drug addictions. At United Recovery CA, we pride ourselves on offering each of our client’s treatments customized entirely to their needs.
Diazepam (Valium) addiction is treated with a medical detox. At United Recovery CA, our specialist team conducts a physical and psychological evaluation to understand your needs in greater detail before administering detox. This treatment follows a program that reduces doses of Diazepam (Valium) regularly, helping to decrease the severity of withdrawal symptoms.
Even when medically assisted, detox can trigger withdrawal symptoms, including:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Increased blood pressure
- Mood swings
- Panic attacks
Detox is a challenging but worthwhile process. It may take several weeks, but you will gradually feel physically and mentally better. During detox, you will also participate in therapy sessions and support groups to address the root cause of addiction.
Our rehabilitation process also incorporates a range of therapies to help you reflect on your addiction and develop coping strategies that will assist you in regaining control over cravings and triggers.
The Addiction Treatment Program
At United Recovery CA, we offer a comprehensive addiction treatment program to help you in long-term recovery. Treatment includes detoxification, rehab, and aftercare.
Detoxification at United Recovery CA includes 24/7 medical supervision, constant staff present and at your disposition, eventual substitute medication, as well as full transparency about what is happening to your body while it’s being cleansed.
Residential rehab, also known as inpatient rehab, is a rehabilitation stage of addiction treatment which happens within our California-based center. As part of rehab, you will stay within a luxury room, spend sessions with a one-to-one specialist, as well as participate in group sessions. The idea of residential treatment is that in this way you will stay away from any triggers and stressors while learning new coping mechanisms.
Extended Rehab Program
The first twelve months of recovery are often the hardest, which is why we provide a personalized aftercare plan for each of our clients. Unique to your recovery goals and needs, your aftercare plan will consider your profession, home life, triggers, and factors that may cause you to relapse.

How Long Does Rehab Last for Diazepam (Valium) Addiction?
Treatment for a Diazepam (Valium) or benzodiazepine addiction can take anywhere from a few months to a few years. Many factors can influence how long treatment lasts, including your health and the severity of your addiction.
You will initially complete ten to fourteen days of detoxification and up to forty-five days of rehabilitation at our center. During this time, you will be encouraged to take your recovery at a pace that suits you best. If you would benefit from additional treatment and care following this initial stay, we will welcome you to remain in our center for as long as necessary.
However, recovery doesn’t end with rehab. It requires consistent work, which can be difficult and exhausting. At United Recovery CA, we offer outpatient treatment and alumni services to support each person who completes rehab as they return to their lives.
Therapies during the Rehab Process
Recovering from an addiction can be lonely, and you may feel like you have no one to talk to when treatment is especially tough. As a 12-step facility, we know just how important a recovery community can be. We hold group sessions multiple times a week at United Recovery CA to foster a sense of community and provide clients with a supportive space to share their thoughts with others.
Group sessions encourage you to connect with others in recovery, share your relationship with addiction, and listen to other people’s stories. Group sessions help you overcome challenges, develop communication skills, and motivate you to participate in fun group activities.
One-to-one sessions at United Recovery CA provide a safe space to address your addiction, background, medical history, underlying causes, and mental health problems with a trained psychologist.
Part of our tailored treatment programs, one-to-one sessions are held daily. During these sessions, you will meet with a member of our team for approximately sixty-minutes to complete the therapies agreed and suited to your recovery goals.
Usually, individual sessions consist of psychotherapy, such as Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), that addresses the root causes of addiction and provides clients with the necessary skills to prevent the risk of relapse.
Alternative therapies take a different approach to treatment than conventional therapies. These particular therapies can boost the healing process and provide creative outlets for those in recovery when used alongside conventional medicine and treatment.
We offer the following alternative therapies in our residential program:
- Music therapy
- Nutrition therapy
- Massage therapy
