However, just like street drugs, these pharmaceutical drugs can become addicting, and a person can find themselves in a spiral of addiction and the pain that comes along with that. Addiction is a hard thing to face and come to terms with. Addiction can destroy families and people's lives. Unfortunately, a large percentage of people die before they can beat their addiction.
Symptoms The symptoms of Librium use are very similar to other drugs. You will often see a person who is blacking out, extremely drowsy, confused, and has very low blood pressure. This is because the drug is a downer. Its purpose is to help the body relax, so when used in large doses, it can completely slow the entire system. Other symptoms of addiction to Librium is when the addict lies about how much they are using or if they are using more than prescribed. Another good sign is if they start to have financial problems along with these other symptoms. Librium is incredibly expensive when purchased outside of a pharmacy.
Treatment The most effective treatment is seeing an alcohol and drug abuse counselor and getting help. Withdrawal from Librium can be deadly if not done correctly and with a nurse and counselor to help you. Drug addiction often has much more profound issues rooted within the person. So seeing a counselor is the best way to get to the bottom of those issues and deal with them so that relapse is less likely. Treatment often starts as an inpatient DRUG & ALCOHOL REHAB. This is because the best way to keep a person from relapse, especially in the first months, is to change their environment. After a certain amount of time, the counselor will determine that the person has worked through these issues enough to switch to an outpatient program. These kinds of programs can be group therapy, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous. The counselor will help the person transition into a new way of life and hopefully reduce the chances of relapse.
Withdrawal Withdrawal from Librium can be deadly if not handled medically. The person withdrawing can experience extreme bodily pain as well as seizures and brain dysfunction. Withdrawing from Librium is terrible and painful, which is part of the reason why people don't get clean. Dealing with an addict is a terrible experience and can be very difficult. But if you can help them and get them into programs to help them, then you may save their life.
