    Halcion (Triazolam) Addiction Treatment


    Quitting Halcion effectively means overcoming the physically and psychologically addictive properties of the drug.

    The physical symptoms of Halcion withdrawal may cause suicidal thoughts, muscle spasms, hallucinations and even catatonic episodes in heavy users.

    Because withdrawal symptoms can be dangerous, medical detox is an important first step in Halcion treatment.

    During Halcion detox, physicians often prescribe a less potent benzodiazepine, such as Valium, to minimize discomfort and reduce dangerous withdrawal symptoms.

    After a Halcion user overcomes their physical addiction, they need therapy and support to keep cravings and other psychological symptoms at bay. Treatments like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) help Halcion users with anxiety, insomnia and co-occurring disorders.

    Halcion-specific Treatment Centers

    Many treatment centers are capable of treating a Halcion addiction, but rehabs aren’t one-size-fits-all. Halcion users should consider other aspects of their addiction, such as co-occurring disorders and dependence on other substances. Finding a treatment center that meets all of the addicted person’s needs is important for a lasting recovery.

    Some of the top treatment centers for Halcion users include:

    Inpatient Rehab for Halcion Addiction

    People with either a severe addiction to Halcion or polydrug addiction can benefit most from an inpatient treatment center. Inpatient rehab is beneficial for those addicted to more than one substance because they need treatment for each drug being abused. A 2008 report found that 95 percent of people receiving treatment for an addiction to benzos, including Halcion, reported abuse of another substance such as alcohol.

    Rehab usually ranges from 28 to 90 days, but some rehabs may offer longer programs for severe Halcion addictions.

    Inpatient rehabs help residents taper down their Halcion use in a way that increases the chances of a successful recovery.

    Before tapering off, benzodiazepine users should be transferred to an equivalent dosage of a long-acting benzodiazepine, for example, diazepam [Valium], and stabilized for 2 weeks.

    - Lowinson and Ruiz’s, Substance Abuse, 5th ed.

    Transferring Halcion users to a long-acting benzo like Valium decreases fluctuations in drug concentration in the blood, reducing withdrawal symptoms. Once the user is ready, their Valium dose is generally tapered off by 25 percent each week. The tapering-off schedule can vary depending on the individual’s needs.

    A good Halcion inpatient rehab has physicians and counselors on staff to tackle both the physical and psychological symptoms of addiction. The types of treatments available in rehab may include:

    Inpatient rehab offers a structured environment to keep residents focused on recovery. Day-to-day operations often follow a tight schedule for meals, counseling and other activities. Depending on the rehab, family and friends may be allowed to visit occasionally.

      Ongoing Treatment and Relapse Prevention Strategies

      For some people addicted to Halcion, outpatient treatment is a better option than inpatient treatment. In outpatient rehab, individuals with a mild to moderate addiction attend group support and therapy sessions during the day or night and are free to go home afterward. This also allows Halcion users in recovery to keep their jobs or school schedules in tact.

      Outpatient rehab also helps Halcion users detox by switching them to a longer-acting benzo and tapering down their dosages.

      Once a former user is sober, ongoing treatment helps them stay sober. Continuing therapy and support groups provide accountability and a sense of community, making them some of the best ways to avoid a relapse.

      Some helpful relapse prevention tips for former Halcion users include:

      • Managing sleep

        Many people become hooked on Halcion because they depended on it to sleep. Once sober, making sure to establish a consistent, healthy sleep schedule helps reduce stress and cravings. Regular exercise can also make it easier to fall asleep.

      • Continuing to see a counselor

        Therapy is a good way to learn how to manage anxiety and stress. Counselors can also teach strategies to deal with cravings.

      • Avoiding triggers

        It’s important for former Halcion users to put themselves in a good environment. People, places and things can spark the temptation to use Halcion. Learn what can trigger a craving and avoid it if possible.

      • Finding a hobby

        People recovering from a Halcion addiction are likely to complain of boredom. In the past, taking Halcion may have been a way to ease this feeling. Hobbies are a constructive way to combat boredom and provide a distraction from cravings.

        Joining a support group – Support groups like Narcotics Anonymous are full of people with similar experiences. These people can offer guidance during difficult times or just be a shoulder to lean on.
