Signs of Benzo Addiction

Your benzo dependence may have started with a prescription from your doctor. Maybe you started taking Xanax or Valium recreationally because it made you feel good. 

Regardless of how it started, benzo addiction can be identified by some common signs. You’ll notice that some of the following effects are the exact opposite of the intended effects of this class of drugs. This is known as a paradoxical reaction.

Common signs of benzo addiction:

Emotional/mental:

  • Anxiety
  • Irritability
  • Feelings of sadness or emptiness
  • Hallucinations

 Behavioral:

  • Trouble concentrating
  • Lack of motivation or interest
  • Excessive sleeping
  • Keeping a stash on hand at all times

 Physical:

  • Blurred vision
  • Slow or slurred speech
  • Labored breathing
  • Nodding off frequently 

If you or a loved one is experiencing these or other signs of benzo addiction, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. You don’t have to silently struggle any longer. At The Treatment Center, we want to provide relief for your benzo abuse.

Why Are Benzos So Addictive? 

Benzos (e.g. Xanax, Valium and Klonopin) are highly addictive for a number of reasons. 

Some people take benzos because the effects are similar to the effects of alcohol—euphoria, relaxation, increased confidence—but without the weight gain and brutal hangovers that are often associated with alcohol abuse. 

Other individuals rely on benzos to quickly relieve stress, panic attacks, or insomnia because they are fast-acting and effective at first. 

However, you are at high risk of dependence if you habitually use non-prescribed benzos to feel “high” or to treat your mental health or sleep disorders.

This is because with continued use, even at prescribed doses, your body can quickly grow accustomed to the presence of benzos. When this happens, your body will start to crave the drug, and functioning without it may seem impossible. 

Are Benzos Dangerous?

Yes, benzos are dangerous. Taking them for an extended period of time not only increases your risk of dependence and severe adverse side effects, it also increases your risk of overdose. This is because you will likely desire to take more and more pills as your tolerance builds up.

Drinking alcohol to amplify the effects of the drug only makes matters worse. Mixing these substances is both common and extremely dangerous because both of them drastically slow down the central nervous system. Sadly, this means your heart and lungs could slow down to the point of stopping altogether. In fact, mixing benzos and alcohol is one of the leading causes of overdose deaths in the United States.
