Barbiturate Addiction Treatment
Promises Austin drug rehab provides expert medical and psychological treatment for barbiturate addiction. Barbiturates affect the central nervous system and include drugs like amobarbital, phenobarbital, pentobarbital and secobarbital. Barbiturates are sometimes used medically for their sedating, anesthetic properties or for euthanasia in animals or people sentenced to the death penalty. When used without medical supervision, barbiturates have a high risk for overdose, especially when combined with other substances like alcohol or opioids.
Signs of barbiturate addiction may include:
- Mood swings and emotional extremes
- Agitation and irritability
- Slurred speech and slow responses
- Loss of physical coordination, clumsiness
- Confusion and memory loss
- Physical withdrawal symptoms like tremors, seizures, convulsions, fever and vomiting

What to Expect in Barbiturate Addiction Treatment
Addiction is a chronic brain disease that requires the help of medical and behavioral specialists to help you stop using the drug, address the underlying causes for your drug abuse and gain critical relapse prevention skills.
Barbiturate Detox – If your body has built up a dependence on barbiturates, the first step to getting better is medically monitored barbiturate detox. During detox you’ll be attended to around the clock by medical professionals. They will provide research-backed medications to ease withdrawal symptoms and ensure a comfortable, safe experience. Learn about our detox services.
Residential Treatment – Barbiturate addiction requires both physical and emotional recovery. Effective drug rehab will not only help you safely eliminate the drug from your system but also address issues like trauma or mental health disorders that perpetuate substance abuse. You’ll learn why you’ve abused substances and acquire relapse prevention skills and healthy habits. Learn about our inpatient programs.
Aftercare – After drug rehab, continued support through an outpatient program or aftercare can help you maintain sobriety. Having the support of addiction professionals and peers in recovery while you return to work or school and face everyday challenges can be critical to preventing relapse. You’ll continue to learn healthy coping skills and get help when faced with triggers. Learn about our comprehensive continuing care program.
