Rohypnol is a brand name for the drug flunitrazepam. It is a potent hypnotic and powerful sedative with powerful anticonvulsant, anxiolytic, amnesic and skeletal muscle relaxant qualities. It is in the benzodiazepine family of drugs and is prescribed for severe insomnia in countries outside of the U.S. Rohypnol is also commonly referred to as the “date rape” drug.
Rohypnol Withdrawal Symptoms
Rohypnol is illegal for use in the U.S., but even when used legally in other countries it is intended for short-term use only because of its strong potential for addiction and severe withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms are more than most can handle on their own and are accompanied by severe cravings. Withdrawal symptoms are often too much for a person to endure alone, and recovering users often resort back to drug use in order to combat these symptoms. The most common withdrawal symptoms include the following:
• Severe Insomnia
• Sever anxiety
If you are serious about Rohypnol recovery, your first step should be to contact a professional treatment center. A treatment center will give you a much greater chance of a successful recovery regardless of whether this is your first recovery attempt or if you have attempted it in the past and are ready to try again.
Rohypnol Rehabilitation Therapy
Each treatment facility may use a slightly different approach and provide you with slightly different options for dealing with Rohypnol withdrawal, cravings and recovery, but there are two important approaches that should be used during addiction treatment. These are one-on-one professional counseling and group therapy. One-on-one counseling involves a professional counselor asking questions in order to identify underlying problems which may have caused the Rohypnol addiction. Long-term addiction recovery comes from being able to diagnose and treat those underlying issues. Without this aspect of recovery underlying causes will likely resurface and impede the recovery process.
Many find group therapy to be the most beneficial aspect of their Rohypnol addiction rehab experience. Group therapy allows you to talk with others who have struggled with the same addiction as you. Many find it a relief to be able to share with people who fully understand the struggles and hardships caused by addiction. They can also get advice for overcoming cravings and maintaining sobriety.
