Making the Decision to Quit Rohypnol

Rohypnol (flunitrazepam) is a drug that is used to treat severe insomnia in some countries but is illegal in the United States. It is recreationally used because of its hypnotic and sedative effects. It is commonly combined with alcohol and other drugs to increase the effects of both. Rohypnol also creates tolerance and dependency that can be impossible to break without professional help. Although many Rohypnol users know the consequences of addiction, they do not know what to do next. The next step is finding treatment, and this may seem like an overwhelming job. However, there are many resources available that will help you find the best recovery plan.

Why Go to Rehabilitation for Rohypnol?

You may be curious about the rehab process and what it can do for you. The following are potential phases of rehab and how they will help you quit Rohypnol:

  • Detoxification. Rohypnol withdrawal can be painful and uncomfortable without professional help. An addict can experience stomach pains, anxiety, hair loss, memory loss, depression, insomnia diarrhea and many other complications from Rohypnol withdrawal. Rehab centers will help ease the pain of detox. Their techniques are designed to flush the drug out of your system with as little discomfort as possible.
  • Counseling. This is an important phase, because it focuses on the root issues of the addiction. It is important to find out why addiction may have started and continued. Once these issues are identified, counselors will help you address them to prevent future relapse.
  • Accountability. This phase is important in preventing relapse. Everyone goes through rough times. Craving drugs during such times can cause relapse. Group therapy, sponsors, counselors and peers are vital in ensuring long-term recovery.

Users may have tried to quit Rohypnol on their own. They will often relapse and begin using the drug again. This is a dangerous pattern, because those who relapse tend to abuse more heavily than they did before. This can lead to overdose and death.
