Ativan is a type of benzodiazepine, usually prescribed as the generic “Lorazepam,” which is intended for relief from anxiety and panic attacks. Unfortunately, like other benzos, it can easily be abused. Many users become physically and psychologically dependent on Ativan simply to function in everyday life. Those who experience Ativan addiction may have intense cravings and continue use despite the problems it causes. Many addicted to Ativan experience relationship troubles, fail to follow through with school and/or work obligations, and lose interest in the things they used to care about.
Getting clean from Ativan takes more than the resolve to stop using it. To free yourself from a powerful addiction to pills like Ativan, you’ll need to undergo a supervised, medical detoxification process in a licensed facility. From there, you will move to inpatient rehab at our beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains facility in Asheville, North Carolina. At our Ativan addiction treatment facility, you can focus on your new sober life in a peaceful, collaborative environment with multidisciplinary medical professionals. We specifically cater to midlife adults whose needs differ from adolescents and young adults addicted to drugs.
Our goal at Silver Ridge is to help patients understand the reality of addiction and how to confront it. You won’t have to do it alone, though, as our addiction specialists will help you get sober from the detox process through addiction treatment and therapy.
