Benzodiazepines like Valium work in different ways in different people. For example, some people develop signs of psychological and physical dependence to benzodiazepines within a few weeks of starting dosage, while it might take significantly longer for others to become dependent on it.
Who Needs Treatment for Valium Misuse
Valium addiction treatment programs are customized, meaning that the treatments patients get are tailored to address the individual factors that have contributed to their Valium misuse. It isn’t at all unusual for benzodiazepine addictions to develop in along with another addiction.
An underlying mental health condition, like depression or anxiety, can leave you vulnerable to a return to misuse, unless that problem is addressed. By performing interviews and tests with medical professionals, your care team can make sure they’re treating all of the conditions you might have.

The easiest method involves tapering slowly off dosage, which should be monitored by a professional care team. Your treatment team will watch you carefully and ensure that you don’t experience side effects, such as:
Therapies for Valium Addiction
While medications can help your brain cells heal, therapy will help you to build up new habits and new opinions, and those things can keep you recovered in the future. The National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) suggests that cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an effective treatment for addictions to depressants like Valium.
In sessions that follow this model, you work closely with a therapist on an addiction treatment plan.
