What is Valium?

Valium is one of the most widely prescribed and reportedly successful psychopharmacological medications on the market, and the generic form has been around since the 1950’s. Valium is used to treat a variety of disorders, according to the National Institutes of Health, and is often prescribed to help with seizures and anxiety. It works in your system to calm both your nerves and certain responses in your brain, effectively reducing the reactions that are associated with stress and anxiety.

Is Valium a Benzo?

Valium is part of a classification of drugs called benzodiazepines, or benzos. Other examples of benzos include Xanax, Klonopin and Ativan. Benzos are widely prescribed for short-term use because they work well to reduce anxiety and can be used in a variety of treatment regimes. While that's a benefit to both patients and the medical community, it also makes these drugs more readily available to individuals who develop an abuse or addiction issue.

Is Valium Addictive?

Valium addiction is very possible, though as with any addiction, some people might be more likely to be predisposed to clinical addiction than others. Anyone can become physically dependent on Valium, though, because it comes with withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking it. Once you understand how Valium works, it's not surprising that it can become addicting. If you are dealing with a high-stress lifestyle or a temporary high-anxiety situation, it can become easy to rely on the calming effect that Valium has. Once you begin to rely on it, though, you might find that you cannot make it through daily life without the drug.

A Valium addiction is not something to be ashamed of or hide. While it's understandable that you might want to treat such an issue with discretion and privacy, seeking assistance from professionals not only helps you recover and return to a drug-free life, but it can also save your life. Valium abuse does come with some dangerous potentials, including death from overdose.

What Does Valium Detox Mean?

Detoxification is the process of removing a drug or substance from a person’s body, so that he or she can function without it. More specifically, a Valium detox is a process that involves removing Valium from an individual’s body.

Valium Withdrawal Symptoms

After taking Valium (diazepam) for an extended period of time, it is likely that your body will begin to rely on the medication. This is because it affects a chemical messenger in your brain called GABA, which produces feelings of calm throughout your body. 

Once you become dependent upon Valium, your body cannot produce enough GABA on its own. So, if you quit taking the drug, you will begin to experience the symptoms of Valium withdrawal.

Severe Withdrawal Symptoms

Like other benzodiazepines, if you take Valium often and in large amounts, the more likely you are to experience severe withdrawal symptoms. For this reason, doctors strongly advise against quitting “cold turkey”. Doing so could shock your body and cause:

  • Severe panic attacks
  • Seizures
  • Tremors
  • Increased heart rate and blood pressure
  • Death
