Benzodiazepine Hotline

352.771.2700  24/7, Toll-free, Confidential

Benzodiazepine, known by its brand names Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin and Valium (to name a few), is most commonly prescribed for anxiety disorders. Used only to treat legitimate medical disorders diagnosed by a doctor, “benzos” are very addictive and can become habit-forming for regular users within six months or less. Left unchecked, consumption of this drug can lead to fatal overdose.

If you or someone you know is dependent on this substance, help is closer than you think. Call our benzodiazepine hotline today and we will get you the care you need to break free from addiction.

They will talk with you about your situation and ask questions to get a feel for what you’re going through before recommending treatment options. Each call is completely confidential, so calling our hotline is your chance to ask questions and be honest about your condition in a safe space.
