Explore Benzo addiction treatment programs at our drug rehab in Georgia.
Benzodiazepines come in different forms and are most often prescribed to treat anxiety disorders or insomnia. Common Benzodiazepine drugs include but aren’t limited to alprazolam (Xanax), clonazepam (Klonopin), diazepam (Valium), and lorazepam (Ativan).
While they have medical uses, Benzodiazepines or “Benzos” come with a high risk of physical dependence and addiction. Benzo addiction can have lasting negative impacts on your life and health, but recovery is more than possible. So, what should you know?
The Berman Center is an outpatient mental clinic in Atlanta. Contact us today to learn more about our Atlanta drug addiction treatment center.
The signs of Benzo abuse may differ from person to person and can impact your mind, body, or behavior. Often, identifying the signs of Benzo abuse is the first step toward getting help. Signs of Benzo abuse to look out for in yourself or someone you know may include but aren’t limited to the following:
Rebound anxiety symptoms, changes to sleep patterns, and other effects are also prevalent among those who abuse Benzos. People with an addiction to Benzodiazepines may spend a significant deal of time thinking about, using, or obtaining Benzos.
The effects of Benzo abuse can be serious and may occur at any time. The good news is that getting help for Benzo’s addiction can help you overcome Benzo’s abuse and avoid further consequences. With that in mind, here are some of the potential consequences of Benzo’s abuse:
The risk of concerns like blacking out or overdose grows if you mix Benzos with other drugs (including alcohol) or take Benzos in large amounts. This is called polysubstance abuse, which is involved in over 50% of deaths from drug overdose.

Benzo addiction treatment at The Berman Center promotes lasting recovery. Drug rehab for Benzos can help you learn to navigate triggers, prevent relapse, and address the underlying causes of addiction. It can also help you rebuild interpersonal relationships with loved ones, find new interests, and create healthy, sustainable patterns or habits.
People start using Benzos for a wide range of reasons. One of the potential risk factors for substance abuse is the presence of a co-occurring mental health condition. If you have a substance use disorder and one or more co-occurring mental health conditions, it is ideal to treat both at the same time.
That is why our Benzo rehab in Georgia is equipped to address co-occurring mental health concerns. Mental health concerns addressed at The Berman Center include but aren’t limited to the following:
Another benefit of choosing The Berman Center for addiction treatment is that our programs are customizable. We allow clients to choose from various activities and therapies designed to aid whole-person healing. These include but aren’t limited to the following:

The Berman Center’s Atlanta partial hospitalization program (PHP) lasts for a total of ten weeks. Partial hospitalization programs provide comprehensive addiction treatment without the 24/7 supervision of an inpatient program. However, PHP is more structured and requires an increased time commitment compared to other outpatient programs.
Clients in PHP at The Berman Center attend treatment five days per week (Monday-Friday, 10 AM to 3:30 PM) for the first four weeks. After that, you’ll transition into a reduced intensive outpatient treatment schedule.
PHP consists of:
PHP clients receive lunch and get to choose their meals. Our registered dieticians can help with your nutritional needs and are experienced in supporting clients with co-occurring disordered eating or eating disorder-related concerns, which are common in those who face addiction.
Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) lasts for a total of eight weeks and has a reduced time commitment compared to partial hospitalization. While IOP is often recommended as part of a step-down approach for those who have finished PHP, it can be a suitable starting level of care for some.
Our IOP clients attend treatment three days per week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 AM-1 PM). Here is a sample schedule of an IOP client at The Berman Center:
Since IOP is more flexible than PHP, it can be ideal for those seeking a Benzo rehab in Georgia who need to tend to commitments like work, school, or caring for their family while in treatment.
Before you enter treatment, you’ll get an intake assessment that’ll help us better understand your addiction treatment needs. Then, we will work with you to choose a starting level of care.
