Opioid Addiction Help
Unlike stopping heavy alcohol or sedative use, depending upon health status, quitting opioid drugs is not particularly risky. Still, it is always wise to get guidance about detoxification from your physician. This is particularly true if you have an underlying condition such as cardiovascular disease that is worsened by the withdrawal symptoms or if you are pregnant; cutting back or detoxing can result in miscarriage. If you are pregnant, consult your doctor before attempting to cut back or detoxify.
Opioids are notorious for producing withdrawal symptoms — your body’s response to cutting down or stopping the use of a substance to which your body has become dependent. Opioid withdrawal symptoms include restlessness, muscle and bone pain, insomnia, diarrhoea, vomiting, cold flashes with goose bumps, and involuntary leg movements.

Codeine Addiction Help
Codeine can be a highly addictive substance and provides the user with an overall sense of calm and a feeling of pleasure. Although most individuals use codeine for legitimate medical purposes, prolonged use over time can lead to addiction and the need for rehab. This is not uncommon.
An individual with a codeine addiction may experience some of the withdrawal symptoms listed below when not using the substance. Some of the codeine withdrawal symptoms include:
- Joint and muscle aches and cramps.
- Flu-like symptoms.
- Restless legs.
- Headache & migraine.
- A runny nose.
- Panic attacks and anxiety.
- Stomach cramps.

Benzo Addiction Help
Benzodiazepines – a group of drugs that include diazepam (Valium) and alprazolam (Xanax) – are prescribed for the treatment of conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, seizures and muscle spasms.
While benzodiazepines are highly effective when they are taken for their intended use, addiction can occur when these drugs are misused.
A review of the physical and psychological symptoms associated with benzodiazepine use illuminates the many dangers inherent in abusing this type of prescription drug. Benzodiazepine toxicity may cause the following symptoms:
Poor decision-making abilities and poor judgment
Lack of motor coordination
Inability to defend oneself in the case of an attack or threat
Death (Rare when abused on its own, fatal overdose may occur when a benzodiazepine is mixed with alcohol.)

Anti-depressant Addiction Help
Antidepressant dependence can form in people who never needed the drugs in the first place. Some people are incorrectly diagnosed with depression and prescribed Antidepressants. According to one study, doctors misdiagnosed almost two-thirds of patients with depression and prescribed unnecessary Antidepressants.
Antidepressants are most often available as oral tablets or capsules. Common Antidepressants include:
- Fluoxetine (Prozac)
- Citalopram (Celexa)
- Escitalopram (Lexapro)
- Paroxetine (Paxil)
- Sertraline (Zoloft)
- Venlafaxine (Effexor)
Signs of an Antidepressant overdose can include any or all of the following:
- Impaired coordination
- Uncontrollable shaking
- Irregular heartbeat
