Anxiety, muscle spasms, seizure disorders, etc. These are just a few of the many reasons that Valium would be prescribed to someone, either by a medical doctor or psychiatrist. As a benzodiazepine, this medication acts as a tranquilizer to the body. These sedative effects are why it’s commonly abused, both by people with and without a prescription. The problem is, it’s not always easy for a user to determine if he or she is abusing Valium or not. Your answers to the following questions will help:

  • Do you use it every day?
  • Do you feel like you need it to start your day?
  • Have you experienced negative consequences from taking it, but you continue using it?
  • Have you tried to stop taking it, but been unable to stop?
  • Do you feel like you need to take larger doses to get the same effect as previous doses?

If you answered yes to the following questions, you may be addicted to and dependent on Valium. The good news is, help is available. Whether you yourself are the user, or you know someone who is, there are Valium hotlines available that can help you get the treatment you need.

What Is a Valium Helpline?

A Valium helpline is a telephone number that’s intended to provide counseling and information about Valium abuse and addiction, either for the user themselves or for a loved one of a user. For many people, this helpline is often the first and easiest step to take to get help.

When Should I Call a Valium Hotline?

If you’re concerned about your own misuse of Valium or about someone else’s, but there is no immediate safety threat, we recommend that you call a Valium hotline. Many Valium hotlines are available 24/7, including The Recovery Village’s, so you can call whenever you’d like and expect to speak to a specialist. However, if there are safety risks present, like a potentially fatal overdose, call 911 for immediate medical assistance.

Overdose symptoms include:

  • Blurred vision
  • Weakness
  • Confusion
  • Labored breathing
  • Dizziness

What Questions Will the Valium Hotline Representative Ask Me?

Just as with a first visit to a doctor, we need to learn more about you and your condition before we can help you. That’s why we ask a series of questions, either to you as the user or as the loved one of the user. These questions may include:

  • Is your safety or someone else’s safety currently at risk as a result of your Valium use?
  • Do you have a prescription for Valium?
  • What do you use Valium for?
  • Are you currently seeking treatment for Valium use?
  • Are you ready to enroll in a treatment program?

Is the Phone Call Confidential?

Yes. We know how important privacy is for our callers, which is why at The Recovery Village, we’re pleased to offer our free Valium hotline service with 100 percent confidentiality. This means that you can call anonymously, whether you’re the user or the loved one of a user.

Can I Start Treatment for My Valium Abuse/Addiction When I Call?

Yes. The Recovery Village offers far more than just Valium 24-hour hotline services. We also offer treatment services for substance abuse at various facilities throughout the country. Therefore, if you’re ready to start receiving treatment for Valium misuse, we can get the ball rolling for you.
