Ambient Addiction Treatment Program

Understanding Ambien Addiction

Ambien is a popular sedative-hypnotic prescription drug doctors give to people with trouble sleeping or staying asleep. Its generic name is Zolpidem. It is usually prescribed short-term to help with sleep issues.

Ambien makes a particular chemical in the brain, and GABA works better. GABA is like a calming agent for the brain. Ambien improves GABA’s function, slowing the brain’s activity and making a person feel sleepy and ready for bed.

When Ambien is taken as prescribed, it’s usually safe and not addictive. However, taking a lot or for a long time can induce intense happiness, “euphoria.” This “high”  feeling can make you want to keep taking it, even if you don’t need it anymore. This can lead to the brain craving the medication. 

If you suddenly stop taking Ambien after taking it for a long time, it can cause issues like being unable to sleep, feeling jittery, or even having seizures. These problems can make you want to keep taking Ambien to avoid the unpleasant symptoms of withdrawal.

Withdrawal Management At Our Ambien Detox

Ambien withdrawal symptoms can cause a range of jarring symptoms that vary depending on factors such as how long you have been taking Ambien, how much you have been taking, and how you stopped it. The medicine can cause side effects affecting the body and the mind.

Here are some common signs of Ambien withdrawal:

  • Insomnia or difficulty sleeping

  • Anxiety or agitation

  • Irritability or mood swings

  • Confusion or disorientation

  • Sweating, tremors, or shakiness

  • Headaches or migraines

  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea

  • Hallucinations or delusions

  • Panic attacks

  • Seizures

To ease the unwelcome symptoms triggered by stopping Ambien, your medical team may prescribe medications to help manage specific symptoms.

Medication-Assisted Therapy

Several medication-assisted treatments (MAT) options are available to help individuals quit Ambien. 

Doctors often use Benzodiazepines to manage symptoms of anxiety and insomnia during Ambien detoxification. These medications can include Benzos like Xanax or Valium and work similarly to Ambien by increasing the activity of the chemical GABA in the brain. Your brain calms down, and you don’t feel the side effects of anxiety and insomnia so much.

Other medications that may be used to control Ambien withdrawal symptoms include antipsychotic medications like Seroquel (quetiapine), which may be used to manage hallucinations or delusions, and anti-nausea medications like Prochlorperazine (Compazine), an antipsychotic medication that can also be used to control nausea and vomiting. 

Ondansetron (Zofran) is a serotonin receptor antagonist that can be used to manage nausea and vomiting. Gabapentin (Neurontin) can help reduce the risk of seizures for heavy Ambien abuse.

It is crucial for individuals considering stopping Ambien to detox under qualified health care supervision in a qualified and accredited medical detox center to avoid relapse or health complications from going cold turkey or without the proper care. 

Our addiction experts and medical practitioners at Southeast Detox oversee a safe and comfortable healing process.

Our Ambien Addiction Treatment Centers in Georgia

Once you arrive to begin your program, one of our top-notch addiction specialists will assess your state, learn about your goals for treatment, and work with you to create your customized treatment plan that covers your challenges and leverages your strengths.

The first step towards recovery for many people is a medically supervised drug detoxification program. This is the safest and most effective way to rid the body of toxins from substance abuse. After detox, continuing healing in the same environment you started is strongly recommended. 

Residential Treatment

Our residential treatment program, or inpatient, ensures you receive the same committed care and support as you detox with your dedicated care team by your side.

This treatment offers a safe and supportive space to manage symptoms and prevent relapse. You might get medication to help with withdrawal symptoms, counseling, and different types of behavioral therapy to address the physical, emotional, and psychological effects of Ambien addiction. Inpatient gives you extra support while you focus on your recovery. 

Outpatient Treatment

Our outpatient treatment might be better if you can’t take time off from work or family commitments. This treatment lets you stay on top of your daily responsibilities while getting you help. You’ll still get access to our high-quality care and support and learn the tools and resources you need to stay sober and healthy.

It’s important to remember that everyone’s recovery journey is different, and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. That’s why we offer a whole spectrum of care, from inpatient treatment to outpatient care. 

Behavioral Therapy

Talk therapies can help people who are struggling with sleeping pill addiction. You can work one-on-one with your therapist to address the underlying issues contributing to addiction.

Therapists in our residential treatment program use multiple therapies to treat addiction, including:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) helps you recognize and change negative thoughts and behaviors that can lead to addiction. It can also help prevent you from relapsing.

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is another therapy that can help with Ambien addiction. It focuses on teaching you how to handle strong feelings positively so that you don’t need to zone out with drugs to feel better.

  • Therapists use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to help people work through trauma. It can help the mind heal quickly as the body can recover from physical injuries.

  • Family Therapy: Your therapist leads this structured talk therapy to help family members and loved ones understand and improve their communication and relationships.

Group Therapy

Experience how building fellowship can empower your recovery. In group therapy, people work together to overcome their addiction. It’s a safe and supportive space for mutual motivation. You can share struggles and feelings with others who understand. 

Here are some of the benefits of group therapy:

  • Social Support

  • Normalization

  • Skill-Building

  • Increased Accountability

Aftercare Planning & Ongoing Support

At Southeast Detox, we understand that recovery doesn’t end when treatment does.

Southeast Detox provides personalized aftercare and relapse prevention plans for each client, including assistance in connecting with 12-step support groups like Narcotics Anonymous of Georgia. 

The alum program offers a supportive, stable community for individuals in recovery to reduce the risk of relapse, especially during the first 12 months. Southeast Detox emphasizes relapse prevention with practical tools and strategies to help clients maintain sobriety.
