Barbiturate Addiction Treatment in Florida

Barbiturate Addiction Treatment in Florida

Barbiturates are CNS (central nervous system) depressants or sedative-hypnotics commonly prescribed for anxiety, insomnia and nerve disorders. While these medications are usually meant to be short-term solutions because of the risks of addiction, they are sometimes prescribed for longer spans.

Unfortunately, people prescribed barbiturates often find they have a psychological and physical dependence on the medication if they take the medication for more than 30 days. The drug can cause dependence, even if taken as directed for extended time frames. Transformations by the Gulf in St. Pete Beach, Florida, offers barbiturate addiction treatment in several forms to help individuals reclaim their lives.

What Is Barbiturate Addiction?

Barbiturates are most often found in pill form, but abusing the pills by injecting or crushing and sniffing them is common among those with an addiction. Barbiturates induce a relaxed state because of their effects on the CNS. Not only is this sedated state desirable for some, but barbiturates can also have effects that are comparable to drinking large amounts of alcohol.

One of the most dangerous attributes of barbiturates is there can be an extremely small difference between a tolerable and potentially fatal dose. If a user develops a tolerance to a current dose, he or she may take a higher dose, which can easily take the individual’s life.
