Barbiturate Abuse (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Although rare, anyone who is addicted to barbiturates requires prolonged therapy to avoid the dangerous symptoms of withdrawal. Addicted individuals are treated with decreasing doses of barbiturates (called detoxification) until they are drug free. Relapse prevention has been found to be most effective when it involves several individuals from various parts of the addicted individual's life. That might include the person's primary care doctor, substance abuse and mental health counselors, physician addiction specialists, as well as family, friends, clergy, and law enforcement professionals.
