What to Expect When Detoxing from Valium

One pill, two pill, red pill, blue pill. No that’s not how the beloved childhood rhyme went, but it doesn’t stray too far from the words that our friend Dr. Seuss might’ve used in today’s over medicated, anxiety-ridden world. If only the world was as simple as nursery rhymes and children’s books. This and the gift of imagination was all it took once upon a time to make us feel better. Then the reality of the world struck as we grew with its heaviness; soon the only literature handed to us would have a prescription attached to it.

Unfortunately, with the best of times and the worst of times- addiction and motivation often become synonymous. Whether through a doctor’s consent or from the dealer on the corner, addiction will make itself known in our efforts to feel better. Dependency naturally follows along and the alcoholic thinking thus consumes us. It’s all just this sick equation of sorts.

Dependency brings withdrawal. Withdrawal brings detox- if you’re lucky that is. Detoxing from valium and benzos of the like is never a fun experience but it comes along with the game. Weaning off the chemicals and finding the light is a difficult time period to go through, but the dedication and going through this bumpy patch is one of the wisest things an alcoholic thinker can do for themselves.

The Torture Begins

Valium comes in a few different colors and a couple different forms- but all contain the same chemical effect. Valium is comparable to any other benzodiazepines that are ready to bring on a black out and make very poor life decisions. These little monsters are unfortunately very easy to obtain in today’s day of age with everybody has some form of anxiety, depression, or a case of being overly sensitive. Either that or we can look to the doctors who so willingly throw prescriptions up in the air like a game of 52 card pick up. However in this game, picking up the cards and reshuffling is equivocated to detoxing from valium.   

Valium will make the user feel like the emptiest of empties. Detoxing from valium will bring most of the same symptoms as opiates and heroin but actually a little more intensified. Okay, a lot more intensified. Detoxing from valium and certain benzos can bring death in extreme cases, so it’s recommended to go through the process in some medical establishment or another while sweating out the discomfort. Essentially the whole body becomes in disarray as the discomfort commences and the symptoms start to thrive like:

  • Sensitive nerve endings
  • Nausea
  • Hot flashes and cold sweats
  • Lack of energy or motivation
  • Feverish body aches
  • Disturbed hunger and dehydration

These are the things we may notice first hand- but keep in mind there’s plenty that we might not notice through the sweaty discomfort of things. This can be due to the possible heart complications and state of shock that detoxing from valium often brings.

Not Worth It

Benzos aren’t all that bad if taken properly. They have been known to control panic attacks and help an array of individuals function in the scummy pungent bubble of life we all float around in. At the same time, if abused and taken with the intent to get high, they will numb the mind and body and throw that person directly under the bus, then reverse the bus and repeat this process until you’re gone. Detoxing from valium is part of the game to getting on the other side of a healthy and happy lifestyle once things become powerless and unmanageable. Once in the thick of it, we forget how beautiful the other side actually can be. Everything we see is shrouded in misery and colorless.

The What

Physically, detoxing from valium is an overwhelming experience that really could be a form of torture. The agony that takes hold upstairs only makes the physicality’s of it much more dreadful. Coupled together and we have the magic ingredients for why many addicts and alcoholics will fear getting clean. Most that have used for this prolonged state are familiar with withdrawals and the discomfort that follows along. Most who have used for this prolonged we state also want nothing to do with that.

Just to reiterate, most are unaware of the frame of mind and emotional state of being that really makes the trek that much more difficult. Irritability and becoming temperamental are large culprits for the emotional wellbeing of a person detoxing from valium. It’s not a fun incident in the least and there are a handful of other uncomfortable experiences some would most likely pick- yet sadly that is not how the game is played. Aside from the shift in hot headed mood swings- there’s a proceeding restlessness that will make sleep a struggle. At the same time- sleep will be one of the things we desire most while feeling zombified.

Due to lack of sleep and the chemical trance being having been lifted, things will appear to be muddled for most as their consciousness kind of rebuilds itself. After living in a cloud of confusion and a separate reality for so long, it’s important to remember when detoxing from valium that it will take time to get through all of this. It will take time, but every bead of sweat and vomit is worth is to make it to a day where waking up and having a cup of coffee is your first concern- not in desperation to search for that next fix.  

Choose Joy

Nobody in their right mind wakes up one day deciding they want to be an addict and find themselves chemically dependent to a substance. In this matter, it’s safe to say we all strive for independence. Regrettably, detoxing from valium and the discomfort that ensues is part of the journey when addiction runs thru your veins. Stand up and don’t allow yourself to become a lifeless victim.

We are ready to give you any suggestions possible and set you or your loved one on a path that we can all be proud of.

Real Client Testimonials

  • Before coming to coastal I was hopeless, helpless, and my family wanted nothing to do with me. It wasn’t the first detox I’d ever been to, but it was the only one who showed me so much love and compassion. They gave me hope. It’s hard to put into words the amount of gratitude I have for this facility. The employees were my family when I had none. The staff went out of their way to make sure not only were my physical needs taken care of, but my emotional needs as well. From the first phone call prior to admission, to helping me set up continuing care, they never missed a beat. Even going as far as to help me with my legal issues via Zoom court. This isn’t just a detox, they are the family I never had. All of the techs, especially Karen, are phenomenal. They will take the time to listen to you, laugh, and cry(if needed) with you. If you are reading this and you or your loved one is suffering like I was, go to Coastal Detox. The level of care is more than I could ever put into a review. It wasn’t the first detox I’d been to, but it has been my last; I owe them everything I have today, including my life.

  • Had a really good experience at Coastal. The staff really went above and beyond in helping me get in and gave me the respect l, space and care I needed after I first got there. As I started to fell better they encouraged me to take part in groups which helped get me out of my head and bring positivity and health to my thinking. They had a great massage therapist, who came daily and it was evident the nursing staff genuinely cared. Got to know some of the staff as well and I’m grateful for the cooks Joe and Chris. Those guys literally made us sirloins and pork chops for dinner. Also I gotta thank Chris and Chris for helping me get in and setting me up with a transition plan. Real grateful for that help, I’m not sure if it’s management intention to hire guys named Chris but they got a good thing going there. Overall, I’m clean and sober today and walking it out. Coastal gave me a base that set me up for the success that I’m walking in today

  • My family is very thankful for Coastal Detox. They have went above and beyond for my son a few times. Unfortunately he has needed their help more than once and they have ever turned their back on him, even when he was at his worst. Jeannie and Chris have been amazing and kept me informed through the entire process. They truly care about the addict and want to help them especially when it would be easy to give up on them. I had many detox facilities be rude and uncaring to me when I was searching for help for my son, but Coastal never did that to us. I don't know the names of all the team members that have helped my son but I know their are many and y'all are angels!! One day we will be able to pay it forward and help someone as you have helped us. Thank you for all you do!!

  • Can not say enough nice things about Coastal Detox & staff. Family member was there, told me five stars for the facility & all whom she interacted with. Said the facilities, ambience..., cleanliness, grounds, food, (think their chef is five stars), were all top shelf. All I interacted with personally & on the phone were patient, professional, responsive & caring. Kudos to so many: Jeannie Jones, Clinical Director whom I spent the most face to face time with: great oversight, patience & follow thru. Raquel Barker, Therapist was so understanding & on spot with her assessments/care. Kris Garrigus Admissions Director, another Coastal professional whom I cannot say enough nice things about, always so patient & responsive to my probably too frequent inquires. Not to be forgotten is Judy Tucker, Director of Operations she too so patiently "put up with me"
    I highly recommend Coastal Detox
