Default Valium Addiction

I have a student that got really addicted to valium. I saw him how he went through the withdrawal stage and the sacrifices he endured just to stop such addiction. His grades failed and involved with some little squabbles in the school campus.

Aside from managing anxiety and nervousness, Valium is also said to be helpful in treating minor alcoholism. Furthermore, patients who will be undergoing surgery are sometimes given a dose of Valium to release nervousness and apprehension.

Same thing to a friend who got hooked with Valium. She had stomach pains and other muscles in her body, she used to vomit a lot and had excessive sweating and tremors. She really underwent therapy sessions in a rehab center for the withdrawal of her dependence on Valium.

I also remember that my grandmother used to brought along with her a tablet of Valium because, according to her, we never know when anxiety will attack us. High anxiety level runs within our family.

Ow! Just now that I know that there is such a thing as rehabilitation center for Valium addicts. Is this really a separate rehabilitation center solely for this purpose?

Yep, there is such a thing. But, I donít think that there is one rehab center that functions solely for this purpose. Rehab centers do not only rehabilitate and give hope to those who got hooked adversely to valium but also those who are suffering of other drug addiction and alcoholism.

Valium is known as a strong medicine for those who have mental disorders. These are usually being given to patients in the mental wards.

Yes it is considered tranquilizer, the drug may provoke suicidal tendencies or acts in extreme cases.

Valium was once widely prescribed as an anti-axiety medication but it seems that it is not used so much with patients under psychiatric care. I believe it is used more for cases of trauma induced anxiety. For example, someone who was just in a car crash might be given valium in the emergency ward of the hospital
