Rohypnol addiction and withdrawals are like monsters always demanding to be fed. The body responds viciously when the flow of Rohypnol is halted, making agonizing withdrawals arduous.
Detoxing in a treatment facility allows for all-inclusive care. Vital signs are monitored while the drug is eradicated from the body. Discomfort is controlled through the use of medication and cravings are more manageable in a supportive and disciplined environment.
The addicted brain makes it difficult to believe there is a purposeful, happy life outside abusing Rohypnol, especially if one struggles with anxiety.
Rohypnol provides a short spell of relief from an anxiety disorder but worsens it long-term. Appropriate medications are safer to use for the relief of anxiety as they are prescribed under a doctor’s watchful eye on your overall health.
A comprehensive approach to treatment focuses on a realignment of the mind and body. Yoga, strength training and nutrition therapy are effective in recovering a healthy body on the inside and outside. Cutting edge cognitive therapies are used to help one reconnect with self, reclaim social skills and learn additional life skills.
An aftercare plan is just as important as treatment. This carefully tailored plan is a personal support system that can fit in a purse or pocket. It’s an action plan to refer to in moments of extreme craving or unexpected social situations.
The sober community offers opportunities to remain involved in sober activities and support groups with others travelling down the same path, are also available.
