Rapid Benzo Medical Detox

Benzodiazepines (benzos), as they’re commonly known, are incredibly addictive and notoriously difficult to quit due to their prolonged withdrawal symptoms. Standard reduction regimens can be very slow, typically involving reductions of around 5-10% every one to two weeks, or an eighth of the daily dose every two weeks.

Syrona offers a unique, advanced, and medically approved treatment programme to help even high-dose benzodiazepine users reduce their dependence safely and at an accelerated pace.

The most commonly misused benzos include Xanax/Alprazolam, Valium/Diazepam, Ativan/Lorazepam, and Temazepam/Restoril.

It’s important to note that Syrona’s medical reduction service is currently only available discreetly in Spain. This programme is tailored to address not only the reduction of benzodiazepine use but also the underlying issues that led to their prescription in the first place. Without addressing these root causes, long-term stability is unlikely.

Syrona’s team of specially trained medical professionals and supportive clinical staff provides 24/7 care to ensure a safe and highly effective solution for clients.

How long does benzo detox typically take?

Overcoming benzo addiction alone can be challenging. Withdrawal symptoms, which can be very unpleasant, may last up to 90 days. However, our methods can provide rapid relief from these symptoms while eliminating benzodiazepines from your body within 10-14 days. Additionally, our clinical team can address the underlying causes of your addiction, significantly reducing your risk of relapse.

Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Symptoms:

Unmanaged benzo withdrawal can be very unpleasant and may cause:

  • Panic attacks
  • Hand tremors
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Palpitations
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Sleep problems
  • Irritability
  • Heightened anxiety and tension
  • Muscle pain and stiffness

What is Flumazenil Detox (Rapid Benzodiazepine Detox, RBD) and how can it help?

Flumazenil detox, also known as Rapid Benzodiazepine Detox (RBD), is a fast-tracked detoxification method. It aims to complete the initial withdrawal phase within 10-14 days. This is achieved by removing most traces of benzodiazepines from the body while minimising withdrawal symptoms. During the process, benzodiazepine use is rapidly tapered while the patient receives a subcutaneous infusion of Flumazenil.

Flumazenil works by strongly binding to GABA receptors, displacing the benzodiazepines. This reduces the benzodiazepines’ effect on the receptors and offers some mild relief from withdrawal symptoms. In most uncomplicated RBD cases, patients can be free from benzodiazepines within 14 days. However, the detox programme may be extended for individuals with co-existing substance misuse, medical, or psychiatric conditions.

What are the details of the detox programme?

The detox programme typically lasts 10-14 days and is suitable for individuals with established high-dose benzodiazepine addiction. The treatment takes place in our luxury accommodation on the south coast of Spain. A dedicated medical team, including doctors and nurses, provides 24/7 care to manage all aspects of your medical needs. Additionally, specialist psychotherapists, psychologists, and other practitioners deliver treatment to address underlying issues and reduce the risk of relapse. Family members or other support staff, as requested by the client, are welcome to visit and provide additional support.

How do clients feel during Flumazenil detox?

Clients typically report feeling comfortable during treatment, with minimal withdrawal symptoms. Some clinicians believe Flumazenil may also reverse the long-term effects of benzo addiction on GABA receptors, significantly reducing withdrawal symptoms and the risk of relapse.

What happens after the detox?

Following the detox, clients will be free from benzo use. However, it’s important to address the underlying reasons for benzodiazepine use, such as insomnia or anxiety, as well as the consequences of long-term addiction. This is why we incorporate non-addictive, physiological interventions into the recovery plan.
