Struggling with Ativan Addiction? Get Help Now

The treatment team at Boca Recovery Center has helped thousands of people with addiction. However, you’re not just a name and number to us. You’re an individual who deserves personalized care. We’re deeply invested in your long-term recovery, and we’ll treat you with care and compassion at each stage of your journey. 

Ativan Addiction Treatment at Boca Recovery Center 

Our talented team knows what therapies have been scientifically proven effective in Ativan addiction treatment. All of the care you’re provided has been rigorously studied and tested. These are a few of the approaches we might use as we work toward your sustained recovery:

Medical Detox 

Quitting benzodiazepines abruptly is rarely successful and often comes with severe side effects.[1] A medical detox program is different. 

At Boca Recovery Center, we’ll design a taper program to help you get sober safely. Many people have success by reducing their dose by 25% weekly. Others benefit from a taper schedule based on their symptoms.[1] We’ll work with you to find an approach that works best for your body and your recovery. 

Medication-Assisted Treatment 

Long-term Ativan addiction can lead to symptoms that persist long after you quit using the drug. Researchers say some withdrawal symptoms, including anxiety and depression, can last for up to a year.[2] A medication-assisted treatment (MAT) approach at Boca Recovery Center may help. 

MAT involves using medications to help reduce your addiction symptoms, allowing you to focus on therapy and rebuilding your life. Your team can help you determine what medications might be right for you, and they can monitor your progress and help you stop using these medications when you feel better again. 

Comprehensive Inpatient Rehab Treatment 

Inpatient drug rehab at Boca Recovery Center allows you to focus full-time on your recovery while living in a safe, comfortable space. You’ll be surrounded by a dedicated team of professionals ready to help you at every step. 

Most treatment programs last 30 to 90 days, but longer stays are an option as needed. Your days will be filled with therapy, counseling, and other therapeutic approaches proven to address Ativan addiction. 

We also offer complementary therapies, such as art therapy, that can help you to address trauma and loss. You may discover a newfound passion you can cultivate when your formal treatment ends. 

Therapy Options 

Counseling with therapy is an evidence-based approach for Ativan addiction treatment. In fact, researchers say combining medications and therapy is more effective than providing medications alone.[3]

At Boca Recovery Center, we always use science-based treatments for addiction. We offer comprehensive programs that can help you really understand how your addiction developed and what you can do to change your future. 

Some common therapies we use at Boca Recovery Center include the following:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): You work with a therapist to understand the connection between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to avoid relapse and learn coping skills.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): This type of CBT involves talk therapy and an education aspect to improve emotional regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness.
  • Motivational enhancement therapy: This type of therapy focuses on resolving your ambivalence about entering treatment and stopping substance abuse.
  • Contingency management: You receive tangible rewards like vouchers or cash for abstinent behaviors, such as drug-free urine tests.
  • Group therapy: Facilitated by a mental health professional, you meet with other patients to discuss issues related to Ativan addiction, challenges, and successes. You may practice sober social skills, drug refusal strategies, and role-play.
  • Family therapy: Facilitated by a mental health professional, you and at least one family member meet to heal the damage caused by Ativan abuse, improve family bonds, and learn conflict resolution and communication skills.
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR): A therapist works with you to reduce the distress related to traumatic memories, using focused eye movements.
  • Holistic and complementary therapies: Combined with evidence-based therapies, holistic therapies like creative arts therapy and yoga may help treat various aspects of addiction.
