  • Effect of being sedated when they are taken.

Treatment

From IVANE ADDICTIONS, we implement a programme focusing on the early diagnosis of benzodiazepine addiction, abusive consumption of tranquilizers, or uncontrolled use of analgesics. It is imperative to detect psychiatric pathology and apply treatment to tranquilizers or other drugs in an integral way to avoid withdrawal through substitution with psychotropic drugs that do not create dependency or tolerance.

A comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to anxiety and affective symptomatology at the psychological level is essential for maintaining abstinence from benzodiazepines, tranquilizers, and long-term analgesics.
