Rohypnol is the trade name for flunitrazepam, a drug that is neither manufactured nor approved for medical use in the United States. Commonly referred to as the date rape drug, Rohypnol is a benzodiazepine that produces a sedative hypnotic effect on a person resulting in short-term memory loss. There is an increase in the illegal import of Rohypnol, and distribution and abuse are increasing domestically especially in southern and southwestern states. The low cost of the drug, usually below $5 per tablet, makes it especially popular with young users.
Get Started With the Rohypnol Addiction Healing Process
When confronted with a physical ailment, people rarely hesitate to contact a professional for assistance. If you have a toothache, you call the dentist. If you sprain an ankle, you call your doctor. However, when it comes to emotional or psychological ailments, people have a tendency to take a “wait and see” approach. Addiction is largely psychological, and Rohypnol users may think the problem will solve itself. However, identifying addiction as a problem and acknowledging the need for help is the first step in healing.
Benefits of Inpatient Rehabilitation for Rohypnol Addiction
When people are addicted to Rohypnol, they frequently focus their healing efforts on only the physical side of substance abuse. Not recognizing that the emotional or psychological aspect of the disease is at the root of the addiction will only serve to delay the healing process. One of the many benefits of an inpatient rehab facility is that these facilities coordinate the treatment of the physical symptoms in conjunction with treating the emotional and psychological issues.
While detox will assist with the removal of the toxins from the body, individual and group counseling directs the recovering user to explore other issues that may have led them to Rohypnol to begin with. Individual counseling provides focused exploration, healing and insight into addiction. Group counseling and support groups can give a person the sympathy, honesty and help he or she needs to better understand where they are on their own personal journey towards being healthy again.
