Ambien Rehab at Axis West
Ambien is a prescription sleep aide, and is also known by the names Zolpidem, Intermezzo, Stilnox, and Sublinox. This medication is most often prescribed to those suffering from general sleeping disorders, and more seriously, clinical insomnia. Ambien is often advertised as quite innocuous; however, it can have several different consequences if used improperly. This medication is usually prescribed for short term or intermittent treatment of occasional sleeping difficulties. When the medication is taken more than the manufacturer intended, the body quickly develops a tolerance to the effects of the drug. This leads a person to take more medication to counteract the developed tolerance. The most common way for this cycle to start is when someone already predisposed to alcoholism and addiction begins to take the drug thinking of it as a harmless way to help get some extra sleep.
Ambien is so addictive because it is almost identical in the effects produced by Benzodiazepines, more commonly known by the brand names Xanax, Valium, and Klonopin. Ambien works on the same parts of the brain as those medications, but since it’s marketed as a sleeping medication, it is given the connotation of “safe”.
Once someone has developed a tolerance to Ambien, they may find it impossible to sleep without the medicine. It may even develop into an addiction that takes over a person’s waking hours as they begin to use the medicine to deal with anxiety and stress throughout their day. An addict’s life will quickly become devoted to maintaining their addiction as they realize they are no longer able to function without Ambien. Fortunately, there is a way to stop the cycle of abuse, and at Axis West’s California Ambien Rehab, we can show you how.
Choosing the right Ambien Rehab Program
There may not be as many Rehabilitation facilities who deal with Ambien addiction as there are that deal with more common drugs of addiction, but this does not mean that someone who has found themselves addicted should pick the first one they find. The two primary treatment options for someone suffering from Ambien addiction are in-patient Ambien rehab and out-patient programs. Depending on the severity of the damage that the addict has incurred in their life, either option could be a successful means of treatment. However, statistical data has proven time and time again that an in-patient program gives the addict the best chances of maintaining freedom from their addiction.
If a decision is made to attend an in-patient Ambien Rehab, one should then take the time to decide which type of facility is right for them. Available facilities range from over the top and extravagant, to very basic with minimal amenities. While both ends of the spectrum can be successful, it is extremely important that a facility is chosen with both comfort and structure in mind. Here at Axis West, we have the perfect balance to give the recovering addict the best chance at freedom from this particularly insidious addiction (source: http://abcnews.go.com/Health/fda-recommends-slashing-sleeping-pill-dosage-half-women/story?id=18182165). We offer many of the amenities of a luxury facility, while ensuring that structure and treatment are a number one priority.
