Benzodiazepines are sedative tranquilizers that can be prescribed for a variety of conditions, but are most commonly used for short-term treatment of insomnia, and anxiety disorders. Xanax, Librium, Ativan, Klonopin, Valium, Ambien, Rohypnol, and Restoril are some of the most commonly used in the Benzodiazepine family. Anytime an individual becomes dependent on benzodiazepines, he or she should undergo a detoxification process to ensure a safe withdrawal from the drug(s). Dependence on benzodiazepines can lead to severe and potentially dangerous withdrawal when attempted without the consultation and supervision of a medical doctor. Symptoms such as increased anxiety, seizures, muscle/joint stiffness, panic/anxiety attacks, agitation, hallucinations, and tremors are some of the most dangerous and reported withdrawal symptoms associated with Benzodiazepine detoxification. A doctor may prescribe medication for you during your stay to deal with the nausea, sleeplessness, and anxiety of withdrawal and to prevent seizures in some cases.
We will also make sure you remain hydrated and receive nourishment as your appetite allows and your body heals. At the same time you will receive counseling during your stay and partake of our many amenities to heal your mind and spirit. Once your withdrawal symptoms abate Harmony Heals Detox will arrange your transfer to the next stage of your care. We will also follow up with you at periodic intervals after your discharge to make sure your recovery is on course or to see if you require additional support. Completing a benzodiazepine detox with us is the first step towards you or a loved one regaining health and balance in life.

What Insurance Generally Covers
Insurance policies vary in the amount of treatment services that they cover. But most policies will cover one or more of the following:
- Assessment – generally fully covered.
- Detoxification – generally mostly covered, but rapid detox and ultra-rapid detox tend to not be covered.
- Outpatient treatment – generally mostly covered.
- Inpatient (residential) treatment – generally partially covered.
Insurance policies will cover addiction treatment to the same extent that they cover other medical conditions. But they will only cover what a professional determines to be “medically necessary.”
Healthcare.gov defines medically necessary as “health care services or supplies needed to diagnose and treat an illness, injury, condition, disease or its symptoms and that meet accepted standards of care.” Most of the coverage will cover the basic necessities but does not extend to luxury accommodations.
