Valium (diazepam) rehab
When you are stuck in a cycle of Valium abuse and dependence, it can feel like attempting to swim in the sea during winter, with waves of cravings, withdrawals preventing you from standing steady and negative emotions crashing over you.
At Banbury Lodge, our Valium rehab programme is a lifeboat, providing a safe and supportive environment where you can weather the storm and reach recovery. With our experienced team of recovery specialists and therapists, you can navigate the rough waters of Valium addiction and emerge stronger, healthier and happier on the other side.
What is Valium rehab?
Valium rehab is a specialised treatment programme designed to help you overcome your dependence on Valium by addressing the underlying causes one by one to systematically learn to manage or overcome them. Like all forms of benzodiazepine rehab, Valium rehab involves a range of therapies and treatments that will help you achieve and maintain long-term recovery, improve your mental and physical health and begin to rebuild and heal relationships.
There are many fantastic benefits of Valium rehab including:
- Decisive steps towards recovery
- The opportunity to repair any damage done by Valium abuse
- Brighter prospects in terms of work, financial security and future opportunities
- New coping strategies and life skills to help manage triggers and cravings after Valium rehab
- The chance to meet other people in recovery who can help support you during Valium recovery
Do I need Valium rehab?
Starting Valium rehab as soon as possible is key for beginning the recovery journey but it can be hard to know if you actually need Valium rehab. This is true for all types of prescription drug rehab because you may convince yourself that you need the medication for a genuine condition. Here are some questions to ask yourself which may indicate a need for Valium rehab:
- Have I tried to quit Valium before and been unsuccessful?
- Am I experiencing negative consequences in my life as a result of my Valium use, such as relationship problems, financial issues or legal trouble?
- Have I developed a tolerance to Valium and need more of the drug to achieve the desired effects?
- Do I experience withdrawal symptoms when I try to quit Valium or reduce my use?
- Do I spend a significant amount of time and money obtaining and using Valium?
- Do I feel like I can’t function without Valium?
- Has my Valium use impacted my mental or physical health?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might require Valium rehab.
What options are there for diazepam rehab?
There are two main types of diazepam rehab: outpatient and inpatient.
Outpatient diazepam rehab
Outpatient diazepam rehab involves attending therapy sessions and appointments while living at home. It allows individuals to continue working and caring for their families while getting treatment. While outpatient diazepam rehab often seems like an attractive option because it is less intrusive, it is also usually less effective as it doesn’t provide the immersive recovery environment necessary for success.
Inpatient diazepam rehab
Inpatient diazepam rehab involves living at a treatment facility like Banbury Lodge for the duration of your treatment. The benefits of inpatient Valium rehab are numerous and include:
- An immersive, holistic recovery environment – This allows you to focus solely on your recovery
- No access to Valium or other substances – This greatly reduces the risk of relapse
- A sanctuary from Valium triggers and stressors
- 24/7 professional support and care – This ensures you have access to help whenever you need it
- The chance to connect with therapists, staff and other clients – This provides a sense of community and support
Diazepam rehab at Banbury Lodge
At Banbury Lodge, diazepam rehab begins with a comprehensive assessment to determine your individual needs and circumstances. This is followed by personalised Valium detox, which is the process of withdrawing from diazepam, breaking the physical dependence and allowing the body to heal.
After that, you will participate in a range of therapies and treatments designed to address the emotional and psychological aspects of your condition.
Some of the different types of therapy offered during our diazepam rehab programmes include:
- Group therapy: Group therapy involves participating in therapy sessions with other clients who are also in recovery. It provides a supportive and non-judgmental environment for individuals to share experiences, learn from others and receive feedback and support.
- One-to-one therapy: During one-to-one therapy, you will meet with a therapist on a one-to-one basis to discuss your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. It provides a safe and confidential space for you to explore the root causes and consequences of your diazepam use and work through any underlying issues.
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): CBT is a form of therapy that focuses on changing negative thought patterns and behaviours that contribute to substance abuse and dependency. It will help you identify and challenge negative thinking and develop healthier coping strategies so you don’t need diazepam to act as a crutch anymore.
- Holistic therapies: Holistic therapies, such as yoga, meditation and acupuncture aim to promote physical, mental and emotional well-being. They can help you to manage stress, reduce anxiety and improve your overall health and well-being.
- Motivational interviewing: Motivational interviewing is a form of therapy that can help you identify and strengthen your motivation to quit diazepam and achieve your recovery goals. It involves a collaborative and non-judgmental approach that will empower you to take ownership of your recovery.
- Family therapy: Family therapy involves meetings with your loved ones to address any issues related to your Valium use and work towards resolving them. It helps to improve communication, build trust and strengthen relationships.
All of these are provided at our UK-leading inpatient diazepam rehab centre where you will be provided with the highest standards of food, accommodation and professional expertise.
How to prevent diazepam relapse
Relapse is a common challenge during recovery, with 40-60% of people relapsing at some point. However, there are steps you can take to prevent Valium relapse and give yourself the best possible chance of long-term recovery:
Engage in aftercare…
Aftercare is an essential part of the diazepam recovery process. Banbury Lodge’s aftercare programmes involve a year of free weekly group therapy for all clients after they leave Valium rehab to provide ongoing support and care.
Triggers are situations, people or things that can trigger cravings for Valium. Avoiding triggers or developing strategies to manage them can help you prevent relapse and create healthier habits.
Taking care of your physical, emotional and mental well-being is also a crucial step in Valium recovery. It can include exercise, meditation, healthy eating and getting enough sleep, all of which can help you manage stress and reduce the risk of relapse.
Having a strong support network of family, friends and professionals can help you stay motivated and committed to your recovery so make sure you reach out for help when needed.
If you do relapse, it is crucial that you don’t allow one blip to completely derail your progress. Discuss the relapse with your therapists, see what lessons there are to be learned and use it for motivation going forwards.
Advice for loved ones
If you have a loved one who is undergoing Valium addiction treatment, your support can make a huge difference in their recovery prospects. However, it can be difficult to know exactly how to help.
Here is some top advice on how you can support your loved one before, during and after Valium rehab:
Educate yourself about Valium recovery and the treatment options available. This will help you better understand your loved one’s struggles and how to support them effectively during Valium rehab.
Offer your loved one emotional support and encouragement throughout their Valium recovery journey. Just knowing that you’re there for them and that you believe in them can give them the extra strength needed during difficult moments.
Don’t enable their Valium use…
Do not provide your loved one with Valium, money or anything else that can enable their Valium use. Instead, encourage them to seek help and support and be tough when you need to be. Sometimes, a little tough love is what is required as long as you explain that you will be there for them when they are ready to change.
Participate in therapy…
Participate in family therapy sessions to address any issues related to their Valium use and work towards resolving them. This can help to improve communication, build trust and strengthen relationships.
Valium Recovery is a journey and it takes time. Be patient with your loved one and celebrate their progress, no matter how small.
