Adequate sleep is a fundamental element of everyday health of which millions are Americans are deprived on a daily basis. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates that a third of Americans don’t get enough sleep in their everyday lives. Whether it’s become external stress, neurological disorder or any other factors, many Americans wind up to using a pharmacological approach to remedy the issue; an action that can, and often does, lead to sleeping pill addiction. Recovery Unplugged offers comprehensive sleeping pill addiction treatment to help you or our loved one overcome this disease and rest easy in recovery.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that approximately four percent of Americans currently use prescription sleeping pills to get an adequate night’s rest, a figure that translates to roughly nine million Americans. This level of ubiquity can make distinguishing between acceptable use and abuse difficult. It’s critical for anyone taking prescription drugs, whether it’s painkillers, benzos, stimulants or sleeping pills, to strictly adhere to the guidelines set forth by the prescribing physician. While each person’s signs and symptoms will vary based on the scope and severity of their sleeping pill abuse, some of the more common include:
Physical and Psychological Withdrawal Symptoms
Dishonesty and Indignation when Confronted
Falling Asleep at Inappropriate Times
Depression, Anxiety and Social Isolation
Slurred Speech and Disorientation
Decline in School or Work Performance
Incarceration and Legal Issues
If you or someone you care about is exhibiting these or any other signs or symptoms related to sleeping pill use, it’s imperative that you get sleeping pill addiction treatment immediately to avoid the further escalation of your symptoms. Risk of overdose is significantly compounded when sleeping pills are taken with alcohol.
Sleeping pill addiction yields a variety of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms that are best managed through medically supervised detoxification (detox). Recovery Unplugged offers compassionate, safe, discreet and supportive detox for sleeping pills in a comfortable residential environment at our Lake Worth, FL and Austin, TX detox centers. Clients receive care from experienced and qualified doctors and nurses who are trained in the symptomology of withdrawal symptoms. The acute sleeping pill withdrawal process typically lasts about five to seven days; however, long-term residual withdrawal symptoms may linger for months. Professional detox very often means the difference between long-term recovery and relapse.
Sleeping pill rehab addresses the behavioral and lifestyle issues associated with addiction, and focuses heavily on addressing the underlying causes and sustaining factors. We offer inpatient, outpatient, partial-hospitalization, long-term and more. These programs implement group therapies, individualized counseling and other supplemental modalities in a safe, supportive and comfortable environment. Recovery Unplugged incorporates music into every aspect of our rehab paradigm to help clients more readily embrace the treatment and recovery processes.
Even though it’s in their best interests to get help, clients very often come to us nervous, reluctant and resistant toward treatment, we use music to help foster trust, communication and support. Recovery Unplugged integrates music into our programming through a variety of means, including but by no means limited to:
Music-Oriented Group Therapies
Guest Performances from Artists in Recovery
Feel-Good Friday Group
Songwriting and Poetry
Recording and Production
We also offer a robust and supportive alumni community through social media, frequent events and get-togethers that allow past clients to maintain the connections they made in treatment while forging new support resources in recovery.
