Ambien, or Zolpidem as it is otherwise referred to, is a sleeping pill that helps many adults overcome sleep problems such as insomnia.  Prescribed by medical professionals, Ambien is only usually administered for a short period.

However, due to the side effects associated with Ambien, an increase in the number of people developing an Ambien dependency has been noted. If you have reason to believe that you are dependent on Ambien, you must seek professional help.

Likewise, if you are concerned that a loved one has become dependent on Ambien, you must understand the available Ambien addiction treatment & rehab options.

To help you understand Ambien addictions, treatment & rehab, we have provided a wealth of information for you to review below. However, we would encourage you to contact us directly to ensure that personalised advice and guidance can be provided.

What Is Ambien?

As touched on above, Ambien is a sleeping pill that medical professionals prescribe to help individuals overcome insomnia. Essentially, Ambien helps many fall asleep faster. It also supports many feel calmer due to being classed as a sedative-hypnotic drug.

How Do Ambien Addictions Arise?

Although Ambien is only typically prescribed for up to four weeks [1], some individuals sadly find themselves reliant on the drug. In many instances, this is because Ambien is a depressant drug. These particular drugs offer short term relief from mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety.How Do Ambien Addictions Arise

Furthermore, as Ambien helps those struggling with insomnia fall asleep much quicker, many find it difficult to cope without the drug. As a result, Ambien is frequently consumed and gradually, an addiction arises.

Unfortunately, research shows that 1% of people who consume Ambien experience withdrawal symptoms that are often unbearable. [2]To alleviate withdrawal symptoms, reduce anxiety and get a good night sleep, greater quantities of Ambien are consumed.

How To Spot An Ambien Addiction

Like many other drug addictions, various physical, psychological and behavioural side effects are associated with Ambien addictions.

For example, some side effects that indicate that an Ambien addiction is present include dizziness, fatigue, lack of concentration, reduced coordination, memory problems, increased heart rate, nausea, loss of appetite and headaches.

If you struggle with any of these symptoms and frequently consume Ambien, it may be in your best interest to consider your Ambien addiction treatment & rehab options.

What Ambien Addiction Treatment & Rehab Options Are There?

Across the United Kingdom, various Ambien addiction treatment & rehab options can be taken advantage of. For example, outpatient rehabs and the NHS offer treatment & rehab for Ambien addictions. Likewise, inpatient and private rehabs offer treatment for Ambien addictions.

The treatment you require for an Ambien addiction will depend on the severity of your addiction and how your addiction has impaired your physical and psychological health. As much of the treatment provided for Ambien addictions is personalised, it is somewhat difficult to ascertain the treatment you will likely undergo without discussing your addiction with you.

However, detoxification, one-to-one therapy, group therapy, psychological therapy and well-being therapy can all be expected. Just as the treatment you require will depend on your circumstances, the rehab you attend will ultimately be contingent on your circumstances too.

For example, Ambien addiction treatment & rehab via the NHS is free. When NHS treatment is taken advantage of, those struggling with addiction usually complete a therapy-based treatment programme on an outpatient basis.

In contrast, Ambien addiction treatment & rehab via private rehabs comes at a cost.

Treatment via private rehabs is often residential and requires those in rehab to remain within the rehab throughout their treatment.

Attending A Drug and Alcohol Rehab For Ambien Addiction Treatment

When an Ambien addiction impairs an individual’s life, many believe that simply reducing the amount of Ambien consumed or going cold turkey will see them overcome their struggles. However, this is not true. To overcome an Ambien addiction, professional treatment must be sought via drug and alcohol rehab.

Unfortunately, going cold turkey or withdrawing from Ambien without professional help induces severe withdrawal symptoms that put many at risk of relapsing. Ambien addictions become considerably worse when relapse occurs and often lead to other addictions and mental health disorders.

Many also forget that Ambien addiction is a psychological disorder. Without treatment such as psychological therapy and well-being therapy, the psychological ramifications of Ambien addictions cannot be overcome. As a result, securing a long-term recovery is virtually impossible.

However, when a drug and alcohol rehab administers Ambien addiction treatment, almost all patients go on to make a full recovery. Free from the shackles of an Ambien addiction, life can once again be enjoyed.

Ongoing Treatment For Ambien Addictions

Ongoing Treatment For Ambien Addictions

Irrespective of the treatment that is administered and the attended rehab, for Ambien addiction recovery to be maintained, ongoing treatment must be secured. After administering a treatment programme via an inpatient or outpatient rehab, 12-months of aftercare support is commonly provided.

Aftercare support ensures that those in recovery have continued support and the guidance they need to maintain their sobriety. In some instances, attending recovery support groups, such as Narcotics Anonymous, is also recommended.

However, it is essential to remember that treatment must first be completed at a drug and alcohol rehab.
