Librium Treatment and Rehab

Treatment for an addiction to Librium is best completed in an inpatient or outpatient treatment center. Ongoing counseling and support groups can help former Librium users maintain sobriety after rehab.

Librium Addiction Treatment

Breaking an addiction to Librium can be difficult, but addiction professionals can make the process smoother. Withdrawal from Librium can be intense, especially for those with a long history of abusing the drug.

Medical detox and an inpatient or outpatient treatment program can help Librium users successfully overcome their physical and psychological addiction to the drug.

Maintaining sobriety after treatment is made easier through ongoing therapy, relapse prevention education and support groups.

Getting help for a Librium addiction is the first step toward leading a fulfilling, sober life. Please call us today for help finding a treatment center.

Inpatient Rehab for Librium Addiction

Inpatient rehabs typically offer programs lasting from 28 to 90 days, though some people choose to stay longer. Inpatient facilities offer the highest level of care, providing the best overall environment for Librium users trying to break free from their addiction.

Most rehabs are very structured with clearly defined phases of treatment, including:

  • Detox and withdrawal

    Many centers offer medically supervised detox, allowing a medical provider to intervene if the patient’s withdrawal symptoms become unmanageable or life-threatening. Some symptoms of withdrawal, such as intense rebound symptoms, can be severe. It is best to be in inpatient care while going through detox.

  • Inpatient program

    The actual treatment phase of the program can last from 21 days to several months, depending on the severity of the Librium addiction. Residential treatment programs are typically structured with scheduled meal times, group therapy sessions, 12-step meetings and individual clinical therapy sessions. Many rehabs also offer yoga, meditation, and therapies involving art, music or pets. Treatment is focused on learning new habits, attitudes and behaviors in recovery, including stress management.

  • Aftercare

    When the former Librium user is discharged from rehab, a representative from their treatment center will provide them with support contact numbers and other recovery information. Outpatient programs are often suggested for the first weeks after rehab to help the newly recovering addict transition back to their life. Participation in a 12-step program is encouraged as these groups provide the former user with fellowship and accountability.

Ongoing Treatment and Relapse Prevention Strategies

Outpatient treatment services are usually offered through a clinic, hospital or private doctor’s office. These programs are an ideal option for someone with a mild addiction who requires minimal supervision during detox and withdrawal. Outpatient programs are also a good option for those who have responsibilities preventing them from going to inpatient rehab.

During outpatient treatment, former users meet with treatment professionals for several hours each day. They participate in individual and group therapy sessions, and attend classes on meditation and relaxation. The former Librium user then returns to their own home or a sober living residence in the evening.

    Some outpatient programs provide medically assisted detox and withdrawal services. Depending on the individual, the doctor may recommend a Librium tapering program or quitting “cold turkey” under medical supervision.

    Ongoing therapy has proven successful in helping former users maintain sobriety.

    Continuing to see a therapist holds the newly sober person accountable for their actions. It also reinforces what the former user learned during treatment and helps to build their support system. A dependable support system is key to preventing relapse in the weeks and months following treatment.

    Beyond avoiding triggers and having a support system, other tips for preventing relapse include:

    • Find new ways to manage your anxiety

      Learning new coping skills and stress reduction techniques will help to reduce anxiety—one of the main reasons Librium is prescribed. This can be accomplished through massage, yoga, deep-breathing techniques, meditation, journaling, prayer, and exercise.

    • Exercise to improve muscle coordination

      Exercise helps with stress, but it can also help with regaining control of bodily functions that Librium abuse impairs. Walking, jogging, swimming, playing catch or weight lifting will help you rebuild muscle strength and coordination. Knitting can also help improve dexterity in the hands.

    • Unwind before bed

      Insomnia is a common problem for those in recovery from Librium addiction. Benzos alter your body’s ability to regulate sleep on its own. You can help your body readjust by relaxing before going to bed. For an hour or two before bedtime, take time to meditate, read a book or drink some chamomile tea. Avoid watching television or going on the internet, as these are mind stimulating activities. Regaining the ability to fall asleep and sleep soundly through the night will set your body and mind up for success.

    • Notify local pharmacies and doctors of your addiction history

      This may sound odd, but it’s not an uncommon tactic of those in recovery from prescription drug addiction. By making the pharmacies and physicians in your area aware of your problem, you’ll be less likely to obtain Librium again if you’re having a weak moment.

    • Keep busy

      Boredom is your enemy in recovery, especially early on. Stay busy by finding a new hobby, going hiking, taking a class or trying out a new fitness activity. If you’re busy, happy and healthy, you won’t have time or even want to think about using again.
