Zolpidem Addiction Treatment and Rehab
According to zolpidem prescribing instructions, it should usually only be taken for 7 to 10 days. At that point, if symptoms haven’t improved, a physician should reevaluate the situation. When zolpidem is used for two weeks or more, it may not have the same effect it did previously. Zolpidem abuse can increase the risks of substance use disorder as well. Signs of zolpidem abuse can include taking larger doses than prescribed, taking it more often or taking it for longer than instructed.
Zolpidem addiction treatment and rehab programs often include behavioral treatments, as well as medications. Some drugs, such as opioids, can be replaced with other drugs that can be used as part of what’s called Medication-Assisted Treatment or MAT. Zolpidem doesn’t necessarily have a MAT protocol, but rehab and treatment can include mental health medications. For example, someone who is addicted to zolpidem may have an anxiety disorder. In this case, medical professionals may prescribe long-term SSRIs to help them manage these symptoms.
Behavioral therapies focus on helping people who struggle with substance use disorder change their old, unhealthy ways of thinking and behaving. During zolpidem addiction treatment and rehab, patients can learn how to manage their triggers and cravings. They can also learn how to avoid relapse. Many addiction treatments and rehab programs will integrate a combination of group and individual counseling, as well as family sessions.
A zolpidem addiction treatment and rehab program can be either outpatient or inpatient. Outpatient programs are intensive, but the individual continues their daily life activities, such as going to work. Outpatient zolpidem treatment is best for someone who has a mild addiction or who hasn’t previously participated in another treatment program. If someone has unsuccessfully tried another zolpidem addiction treatment program, has a severe addiction, has multiple addictions or has underlying mental health concerns, inpatient treatment may be the best option. Following the intensive portion of addiction treatment, patients are provided with aftercare planning to help them successfully transition back into their daily lives while avoiding relapse.
