Focused Treatment
Medically Assisted Ambien Detox

Are you or someone you love considering an Ambien detox? At Guardian Recovery Network we understand how difficult Ambien withdrawal can be. The symptoms make quitting hard even when someone desperately wants to. Ambien specifically causes a range of withdrawal symptoms — including tremors, sweating, restlessness, insomnia, confusion, depression and anxiety attacks — that can severely interrupt an individual’s ability to live their life sober. The key to overcoming this obstacle is a medically supervised detox where withdrawal symptoms can be eased in a comfortable, supportive, homestyle environment. Beyond physical stabilization, detox is also an important time to plan a path forward in life, free from the binds of Ambien addiction. At Guardian Recovery Network we first provide a safe, pain-free detox, then we get to work putting together a plan for long-term sobriety. We perform an in-depth initial evaluation and tailor a treatment plan unique to each client’s needs and recovery goals. We  begin therapy and offer holistic treatments. We encourage a continuum of care, which could include continuing past detox on to an inpatient residential, partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient program. We ensure every client leaves with a firm foundation on which to build their ongoing recovery.

More About Ambien

Ambien is the brand name of the generic drug zolpidem, which is most often prescribed to treat sleep-related issues like insomnia. Compared to other medications that are used to treat sleep disorders, Ambien is less habit-forming — still, physical and psychological dependence can occur over time. If you or someone close to you has been struggling with Ambien abuse or dependence, Guardian Recovery Network is available to help. When it comes to prescription medications like Ambien, it is crucial that medical detox is sought as the first stage in the recovery process. Ambien withdrawal symptoms can be severe when left untreated. Our medically monitored detox program focuses on providing men and women of all ages who have struggled with Ambien dependence with a safe and pain-free withdrawal.

However, at Guardian Recovery Network we focus on more than physical stabilization. We believe that medical detox should work to lay a solid and lasting foundation for ongoing recovery. We provide our clients with comprehensive and highly individualized care that includes intensive behavioral therapy and holistic treatment methods.

Ambien Abuse
Facts & Statistics

According to the DAWN (Drug Abuse Warning Network) Report, between 50 and 70 million Americans suffer from a chronic sleep disorder like insomnia. The report also stated that between 2005 and 2010, the number of emergency room visits that directly involved Ambien increased by 220 percent — from 6,111 annual visits to 19,487 annual visits. Roughly half of these emergency room visits involved another chemical substance such as alcohol or an opioid narcotic, and men and women over the age of 45 represented roughly 75 percent of all visits and adverse reactions. Most people who experience severe side effects that lead to emergency room visits are struggling with some degree of Ambien abuse disorder. If you or someone you love has been struggling with an Ambien abuse disorder there is help available. Because the symptoms associated with Ambien withdrawal can be so severe, medically monitored detox is a necessary first step on the road to recovery.

Ambien Addiction
Signs & Symptoms

Ambien is the most frequently prescribed sleep disorder medication throughout the U.S., and prescription rates have continued to climb since the pharmaceutical was first introduced in 2007. During the first year it was introduced Americans filled nearly 16 million Ambien prescriptions, as reported in an article published by Health. While using Ambien as prescribed rarely leads to physical and psychological dependence, taking more of the medication than intended for a longer period of time than intended can lead to addiction.

The signs and symptoms of Ambien addiction are:

  • Attempting to cut back on the amount being taken but being unable to do so
  • Experiencing a range of consequences directly linked to excessive Ambien use
  • Engaging in drug-seeking behavior like attempting to get more than one Ambien prescription written at a time or rummaging through the medicine cabinets of friends or family members looking for unused prescriptions
  • Chronic tiredness and significant changes to sleep patterns
  • A lack of motivation to fulfill personal responsibilities and take care of obligations
  • A lack of attention paid to personal hygiene
  • Mood swings, often characterized by irritability and agitation
  • Developing a tolerance for Ambien, meaning a higher dose is required in order for the desired effects to be produced
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when use is stopped suddenly

Ambien Withdrawal
Signs & Symptoms

Because the symptoms associated with Ambien withdrawal can be severe, medical detox may be necessary. The severity of symptoms depends heavily on how long you or your loved one has been abusing the medication, the severity of the substance abuse disorder and the presence of any pre-existing conditions. Symptoms can be broken down into two main categories — physical and psychological.

The physical symptoms of Ambien withdrawal include:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Uncontrollable shaking/body tremors
  • Aches and pains
  • General feelings of physical discomfort
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Profuse sweating
  • Restlessness
  • An inability to fall asleep and stay asleep
  • Compromised motor functions

The psychological symptoms of Ambien withdrawal include:

  • Severe anxiety and panic attacks
  • Intense confusion
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Delirium

Is Ambien Detox Necessary?

Some people attempt to detox on their own, either because they are unaware of the detox services that are readily available to them, or because they think they can quit cold turkey with no serious consequences. The truth is that medically monitored detox is highly recommended due to a number of reasons, including:

  • The physical and psychological symptoms associated with Ambien detox can be extremely uncomfortable, and receiving care from an Ambein detox facility helps alleviate the more severe symptoms
  • Symptoms can be unpredictable and result in serious health-related consequences when left untreated
  • Clients have access to a range of homestyle retreat facilities geared towards speeding up the physical, emotional and mental healing process
  • Because the family members of our clients are also affected by active Ambien addiction, we offer a range of family-oriented resources and services
  • We provide individualized plans for continuing care which greatly reduces the risk of relapse
  • We have licensed therapists and psychiatrists on staff who are available to thoroughly address any dual diagnosis disorders

    Treatment Options for Ambien Withdrawal

    The most effective treatment options for Ambien withdrawal include a combination of medications and evidence-based therapies. If the symptoms associated with Ambien withdrawal are not severe we typically prescribe over-the-counter pain relievers and non-addictive sleep aids like melatonin. If symptoms are more disruptive, we might turn to medications like Klonopin, anti-seizure medications like Neurontin and antipsychotic medications like Seroquel. At Guardian Recovery Network we believe that no stone should be left unturned when it comes to recovery — even during the initial stage of the process. For this reason we offer more than around-the-clock medical supervision and medication assisted treatment options. We focus on emotional, mental and spiritual healing as well.

    Ambien Addiction Recovery

    Every effective program of clinical care begins with medically monitored detox. Because Ambien withdrawal can be so physically and psychologically uncomfortable, it is crucial that you or your loved one enters into detox before the more severe withdrawal symptoms take hold. In order to provide the most effective clinical care as quickly as possible, we have developed an admissions process that is straightforward, uncomplicated, and can take place over the phone in a short matter of minutes. The moment you or your loved one contacts us we begin by conducting a brief pre-assessment to identify unique clinical needs and requirements. Once the assessment is complete we begin looking at potential coverage options. In addition to working with most major regional and national health insurance providers, we offer self-pay and private pay options to those who are uninsured or underinsured. Next we set a date and a time for intake and help arrange reliable transportation.

    If you or someone you love has been abusing Ambien or any other prescription medication, there is help available. Contact us today to begin the healing process.
