What We Do

Signs and Symptoms of Benzo Addiction

Statistics indicate that Benzodiazepine misuse has increased throughout the years. While people obtain the drugs in different ways, the most common way a person who misuses Benzodiazepines gets them is through a friend or relative. The signs and symptoms of Benzo addiction can be behavioral, mental, or physical. If you suspect Benzo addiction in yourself or someone else, knowing the signs can help you identify it. For some, this is the first step toward getting help.

Behavioral and mental signs of Benzodiazepine addiction include but aren’t limited to:

  • Continuing to misuse Benzodiazepines, even when doing so, affects work, personal relationships, or other essential parts of your life
  • Needing to take higher doses of Benzos than before to achieve the desired effects 
  • “Doctor shopping” to get additional prescriptions for Benzodiazepines
  • Taking, stealing, or illegally purchasing Benzodiazepines from others 
  • Failed attempts to stop using Benzos, even if you want to quit
  • Combining Benzodiazepines with alcohol or other drugs 
  • An increased need for secrecy or privacy
  • Social isolation or withdrawal from others
  • Lying about the frequency of Benzodiazepine use
  • Changes in mood or mood swings
  • Impaired thinking or judgment
  • Increased trouble focusing
  • Changes in personality 
  • Memory problems

Physical signs of Benzodiazepine addiction include but aren’t limited to:

  • Sluggishness or sleeping more than usual
  • Slowed psychomotor activity
  • Gastrointestinal distress 
  • Impaired coordination
  • Slowed reaction time
  • Dry mouth 
  • Slurred speech
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness 
  • Fatigue

Long-Term Health Risks of Benzo Use

Unfortunately, the risks associated with Benzo use are not just short-term. They can also affect you on an ongoing basis. Furthermore, while Benzo misuse is always dangerous, it is known that the likelihood of severe consequences may increase when Benzos are used alongside other drugs. This is part of why getting help is so crucial, even if you feel things are under control. 


Long-term health risks associated with Benzo use include but aren’t limited to the following:


  • An increased risk of injury or accidents from driving while on Benzos or engaging in other risky activities
  • Worsened or new mental health symptoms (e.g., increased feelings of anxiety or depression)
  • Financial and occupational problems, such as job loss or getting in trouble at work
  • A higher likelihood of developing dementia and related diseases
  • Memory, learning, or attention problems
  • Cardiovascular problems or heart failure
  • Legal problems 
  • Overdose
  • Seizures
  • Death 
  • Coma


Benzos Addiction Treatment in New Jersey

Getting Benzos addiction treatment in New Jersey through Prevail Recovery Center means we can help you through your journey step by step from when you choose to enter a program to after you go. We offer the following levels of care. No matter what program you enter, we are here to help you with everything from getting off of substances safely to moving through your treatment program and building a personalized aftercare plan. 


Withdrawal Management


In many cases, withdrawal and rebound symptoms are two of the main things that stop people from getting off of Benzodiazepines or misusing other drugs. Getting off of Benzodiazepines can come with uncomfortable withdrawals. Our outpatient detoxification or “detox” programs are designed to help you get off substances like Benzodiazepines safely with the help of experienced medical staff. Many people experiencing Benzo addiction need to taper off of them gradually and as directed by a professional to avoid severe discomfort and serious risks, such as seizures. If you require tapering, our medical staff will help you move through the process properly. 


Partial Hospitalization


Partial hospitalization programs, also called PHP, are the most intensive type of outpatient addiction treatment. The time commitment generally required for PHP is like a work or school day in that you’ll attend treatment for most of your day on most days of the week for the duration of your program. Due to the intensity it provides, PHP lets you immerse yourself in recovery while still getting the perk of living off-site. Clients can continue tapering off of Benzos during this or another level of care if applicable. 


Intensive Outpatient


Intensive outpatient programs, also called IOP, are one step below PHP in intensity. IOP requires less engagement and time than PHP, making it an ideal fit for people who need increased flexibility due to work, school, or family life while in their treatment program. However, our intensive outpatient Benzos addiction treatment in New Jersey still ensures that you will be able to engage in a combination of regular groups and weekly individual therapy sessions alongside other treatments that are relevant to your needs.




Less intensive outpatient care helps you maintain recovery while living your new day-to-day life through continued therapy, groups, and other services, like medication management, if applicable. Outpatient care is ideal for those stepping down from a higher level of care like PHP because it requires an even lower time commitment and offers less supervision.

What We Do

Why Choose Prevail Recovery Center?

There are so many reasons why Prevail Recovery Center is an excellent fit for those seeking Benzos addiction treatment in New Jersey. Alongside our experienced staff and levels of care, here are some of the features that set us apart from the rest.


Sober living


We have supportive housing, also called sober living, available for sober individuals in and outside of addiction treatment programs. Since we are an outpatient-only facility, many clients choose to live in our sober living facilities if their current address is away from the treatment center. Another reason people choose supportive housing is to live alongside other sober individuals. Sober living is just like living in any other apartment but with the community and a 100% drug and alcohol-free space.


Dual diagnosis care


We offer dual diagnosis care for clients facing a substance use disorder and at least one other mental health condition. If you have a co-occurring mental health condition (such as depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder) and are seeking Benzos addiction treatment in New Jersey, it is a great reason to choose Prevail Recovery Center.
