Treating Ativan Addiction

The highly addictive drug Ativan is prescribed for patients suffering from anxiety and works by balancing the chemicals in the brain to calm the patient. It belongs to the benzodiazepine class of drugs and can produce hostility, amnesia, convulsions and other dangerous conditions. If you or a loved one have developed increased dependency on this drug, which has the generic name of lorazepam, please know that reversing your addiction using neuroscience-developed therapies is possible – and actually happening – at Arizona Rehab Center (ARC).

Your Path to Recovery

Ridding your system of the lingering toxins from Ativan requires undergoing detox. This is the first step in the program and is achieved by making you as comfortable as we can and showing compassion at all times. Once detox has restored your system to baseline health, our expert licensed therapists and knowledgeable staff make sure you are assisted through the phases of dependency recovery with understanding and encouragement.

Included in our comprehensive program at ARC are:

  • Initial medically supervised detox to achieve baseline health
  • Private room accommodation
  • Personal counselor
  • Individual therapy daily
  • Treatments (as needed): CBT, motivational interviews & mindfulness, family therapy, relapse prevention, 12-step support
