Once you become addicted to sleeping pills, it is difficult to recover without professional help such as ambien treatment. You may not think you need ambien treatment or you may not yet realize that you are addicted. However, once you realize that your Ambien use has turned into ambien abuse, you need to seek help. The problem is, more and more people face insomnia or other sleeping disorders and need sedatives such as ambien to deal with these disorders. There in lies the issue because the more you use sleep sedatives, the higher your risk is for addiction, which ultimately leads to ambien treatment.
The Watershed offers rehabilitation for all forms of addiction, including those to Ambien and other sleeping pills. At our center, you will receive an individualized treatment plan so that we can help you overcome your unique addiction issues. We want to help you understand how you became addicted to ambien and teach you how to develop healthy sleeping habits again. If you are in need of ambien treatment, please do not be afraid to call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768 today.
Ambien Rehab Does Not Mean Ambien Abuse
Ambien is a prescription drug given to help you fall asleep at night. Essentially, it is a treatment for insomnia. This type of addiction is strange because usually it does not fit the public’s standards of drug addiction. This means that you did not go to the streets to get the drug, nor did you habitually abuse the drug. You merely took the prescription drug as prescribed, possibly abusing it every once in a while, and formed a dependence to it. While usually sedatives such as ambien are only prescribed for short periods of time or at intervals to avoid addiction, it is not uncommon that people (like you) have taken it for long periods of time. Hence, an addiction is built.
Another strange occurrence, at least to the general public, is that there is such a thing as ambien treatment, meaning a rehabilitation program directed towards you and other individuals addicted to prescription sleep aids. However, just because it is strange to the general public, only in that prescription drug rehab is not something that is usually thought about, it does not mean that ambien treatment is not a great thing. If you enrolled in our ambien treatment program at The Watershed, it would be an extraordinary thing because you would actually get the help you needed.
Who Is At Risk For Ambien Addiction?
At this point in your life you may have just started taking ambien or you are considering taking it but you may be wondering who is at risk for addiction and potential ambien treatment. While this is something you should discuss with your primary physician, it is wise to research it on your own. At The Watershed, we are not only about providing help for those facing a crisis, we are also about helping people to avoid addiction altogether. Hence, we are answering the question of who is at risk for ambien treatment. Essentially, anyone who takes this prescribed sedative in high doses or for a long period of time is at risk for addiction, but, there are also other things to consider. If you have been or are currently addicted to other drugs and/or alcohol, you are at a higher risk for developing an ambien addiction.
Now, the question “who is at risk for ambien treatment” really does not do the actual treatment any justice because ambien treatment, at least at The Watershed, is not nearly as painful as you would think. We provide peaceful surroundings with a fully qualified staff. Hence, if you do happen to be at risk, then at least you know you will be taken care of. All you would need to do is call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768 to begin the enrollment process.
How Will I know If I Need Ambien Treatment?
Since ambien is a prescribed sedative, it may be difficult to determine if you have actually formed an addiction. You may even be wondering, “How do I know if I need ambien treatment?” While the signs are not as clear as in illegal drug addiction, there are certain things you can look for. Ambien addiction is probably most clearly defined by the fact that you experience withdrawal symptoms if you go too long without the ambien. Withdrawal symptoms can include but are not limited to abnormal aggression, confusion, insomnia, hallucinations, nausea, confusion, and anxiety. Other signs that you need ambien treatment are that you are taking more ambien then you are supposed to, having to refill your prescriptions early or consistently because of over use, or taking higher doses of the ambien to achieve its initial effects, meaning you have grown a tolerance to it. If any of these symptoms fit you this means that you are either abusing your ambien or you have already formed an addiction to it. Either way, you need to call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768 and enroll in our Ambien treatment program.
