Treatment for Sedative Addiction

Sedatives are central nervous depressants that slow brain activity and are often used to help people living with anxiety, depression, or sleep challenges.  Some of the most common examples of sedatives are benzodiazepines, barbiturates, prescription sleep aids, and hypnotics. 

While they can be safe and medically beneficial in some cases, sedatives are also extremely addictive. Unfortunately, the number of people affected by sedative abuse and addiction continues to increase every year.

Even though sedative addiction is chronic, it’s highly treatable. Here at Compassion Behavioral Health, we specialize in helping those who are addicted to sedatives heal. You can trust us to support you before, during, and after your recovery.
