Restoril Addiction Treatment Options

Overcoming temazepam addiction begins with expert treatment. Because temazepam addiction tends to trap the user in the self-destructive cycle, medically-assisted treatments help make the process safe.

Medical Treatment for Restoril Addiction

Treatment involves medically supervised detoxification to withdraw the substance from the patient’s bloodstream. This is a process of medical monitoring and pharmacological interventions which help manage acute withdrawal periods and symptoms. In addition, some FDA and expert-approved medications such as propranolol and clonidine are used to ease the withdrawal symptoms and cravings, helping to manage the detox process.

Inpatient Treatment vs. Outpatient Treatment for Restoril Addiction

Inpatient treatment is great for people with moderate to severe temazepam addiction, as the patient is under healthcare treatment 24/7. Inpatient includes prescribed medicines, counseling, and behavioral health services based on a person’s needs and level of addiction.

Outpatient treatment is commonly referred to the patient with mild effects of substance addiction. The patient goes to the clinic for several hours for treatment and can return home per recommendation. Outpatient includes personal and group counseling, as well a long-term relapse expert prevention plan.

Process and Stages of Restoril Addiction Treatment in the Dr.Vorobjev Clinic

We have experts who have helped patients treat their addiction to Restoril:

Diagnosis of Restoril Addiction

Diagnosis is the first step. This involves a thorough evaluation, including a psychologist, psychiatrist, and drug counselor assessment. You will be asked questions about your medical history, such as when you started using this medication, how frequently you use it, and the signs and symptoms you may be experiencing.

Urine and blood lab tests are also used to precisely assess the level of drug addiction. In some cases, we may require permission to ask your friends and relatives questions about you, but the doctor will tell you when this is necessary.

Temazepam Detoxification Treatment

This is a process to let the body cleanse the drug in it and safely manage the withdrawal symptoms. It is a painless process that involves the use of prescribed medications.

Inpatient Treatment

Inpatient treatment aims to decrease depression, improve coping skills, adjust medications, lessen any suicidal thoughts, and incorporate other treatments. Inpatient is mainly referred to a patient with high levels of temazepam addiction; he or she is kept under the supervision of doctors 24/7. Personal and group therapies are conducted with the patient.

Outpatient Treatment

Outpatient treatment involves planning, case management, education, recovery services, crisis intervention, and individual and group counseling. This type of treatment is great for a patient with mild levels of Restoril addiction.

Aftercare

After treatment, the patient will attend periodic counseling, focused on preventing relapses.
