Imagine being trapped in a room that has no door. You’re desperately seeking an exit, a way out, but all you see are neverending high walls. This is what zopiclone addiction often feels like, an inescapable room with no way out. But what if we told you that a door exists, and it is called zopiclone rehab? This proven form of sleeping pill rehab is the most effective way to put zopiclone use behind you and heal from the damage it has caused. Oasis Runcorn’s zopiclone rehab programmes have helped many people turn their lives around, and we stand ready to help you too.
Zopiclone rehab is not just about abstaining from the drug. It is about understanding why you got trapped in the room in the first place and how you can avoid ending up there again. Rehab encompasses a range of therapies and treatments tailored to you, aiming to address the root causes of your addiction.
Think of zopiclone rehab as a two-pronged approach. First, there’s zopiclone detoxification or “detox,” during which the drug leaves your system. Detoxing off zopiclone is followed by the second prong – the therapeutic phase, where you work on the psychological aspects of your addiction.
Benefits of inpatient zopiclone rehab
At Oasis Runcorn, we offer inpatient zopiclone rehab, which has been proven to offer the highest chance of a successful recovery. Inpatient rehab means you will stay in our facility as a resident while you complete your zopiclone rehab programme.
Inpatient zopiclone rehab is like a ‘reset’ button for your life, providing a conducive environment for recovery, away from your daily triggers and stresses.
Benefits of inpatient zopiclone rehab include:

- Structured routine: Inpatient zopiclone rehab follows a structured schedule filled with therapy sessions, recreational activities and balanced meals, all of which can foster healthy living habits.
Do you need zopiclone rehab?
The first step on the zopiclone recovery journey is recognising that you need help. To help break through any denial or uncertainty, answer these questions honestly:
- Have you tried to quit zopiclone on your own but always ended up using it again?
- Is your zopiclone use interfering with your work, studies or personal relationships?
- Do you experience zopiclone withdrawal symptoms when you try to stop or reduce your dosage?
- Do you find that you need increasing doses of zopiclone to achieve the desired effects?
- Have you obtained zopiclone nefariously by buying it on the black market, online or by “doctor shopping” for multiple prescriptions? (a very common sign of prescription drug addiction)
- Did you start taking zopiclone for a genuine sleep disorder but now find yourself using it throughout the day too?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, it is advisable to reach out for professional help through zopiclone rehab.
Zopiclone detox is the initial phase of rehab, where the drug is cleared from your system. It’s crucial to detox under medical monitoring, as the process can sometimes lead to uncomfortable, even dangerous, zopiclone withdrawal symptoms.
During detox, you will usually be slowly weaned off zopiclone to lessen withdrawal symptoms. In some cases, other medications may be used to manage these symptoms and ensure your safety throughout the process.
Common zopiclone withdrawal symptoms
Experiencing zopiclone withdrawal symptoms can be tough. However, these symptoms are a sign that your body is learning to function without the drug. Zopiclone withdrawal side effects may include:
- Sleep disturbances: Zopiclone is a medication used to treat insomnia, so when you stop taking it, sleep issues may return or even worsen initially.
- Mood changes: You may experience feelings of anxiety, depression or irritability as your brain chemistry adjusts during zopiclone withdrawal.
- Physical discomfort: You may also experience flu-like symptoms such as sweating, shaking, nausea or headaches.
Understanding the zopiclone withdrawal timeline
Understanding the zopiclone withdrawal timeline can prepare you for what lies ahead. It’s important to note that zopiclone withdrawal experiences can vary depending on individual factors like the duration of use, dosage, overall health and the presence of other mental or physical health conditions.
Here’s a general idea of the zopiclone withdrawal timeline:
- Days 1-3: Zopiclone withdrawal symptoms often start within a few hours to a couple of days after the last dose. You might experience anxiety, restlessness, insomnia and a strong craving for zopiclone.
- Days 4-7: Zopiclone withdrawal symptoms may peak around this time, becoming more intense. You may experience physical symptoms like tremors, sweating, rapid heartbeat and nausea.
- Week 2 and beyond: The intensity of physical symptoms usually begins to decrease after the first week. However, psychological zopiclone withdrawal symptoms like anxiety or cravings may continue for several weeks or even months after your last dose.
Remember, zopiclone detox should always be done under the supervision of medical professionals who can monitor your symptoms and manage any complications.
Managing Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS): In some cases, you might experience zopiclone withdrawal symptoms for a longer period, a condition known as PAWS. Symptoms might include mood swings, sleep disturbances, strong cravings and chronic fatigue. Your zopiclone detox team can provide strategies to manage these symptoms, and in some cases, medication may be recommended.
The power of therapy in zopiclone rehab
Therapy is an integral part of zopiclone rehab, offering the tools you need to understand your dependency and sustain long-term recovery. Some of the therapeutic approaches commonly used in zopiclone rehab include:
- Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT): This therapy focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns that contribute to zopiclone dependency, equipping you with healthier coping strategies so you don’t rely on zopiclone when these thoughts arise.
- Group therapy: In group therapy, you can share experiences and gain support from others facing similar struggles. This shared journey can foster a sense of belonging and mutual understanding during your time in zopiclone rehab.
- Family therapy: Zopiclone abuse and dependency affect not just you but your loved ones as well. Family therapy aims to heal these relationships, improve communication and foster a supportive home environment for your recovery journey.
Alongside traditional therapies, Oasis Runcorn’s zopiclone rehab programme also incorporates a number of holistic therapies to go beyond just addressing symptoms of dependency. These include:
- Mindfulness and meditation: These practices help you stay grounded in the present, reducing anxiety (a common symptom of zopiclone withdrawal and dependency) and improving your overall emotional well-being.
- Yoga: Yoga combines physical postures, breathing exercises and meditation, promoting physical strength and better overall well-being. It can also improve mental clarity and clear the brain fog caused by zopiclone detox and dependency.
- Art therapy: Zopiclone abuse and dependency affect not just you but your loved ones as well. Family therapy aims to heal these relationships, improve communication, and foster a supportive home environment for your recovery journey.
Facing challenges in zopiclone rehab
As you navigate the path to zopiclone recovery, you will encounter a number of major challenges. This is a normal part of the process, and having a sense of what these obstacles might be can help you prepare to meet them head-on.
Managing zopiclone cravings
Even after zopiclone detox, you may still find yourself battling cravings for zopiclone. In zopiclone rehab, you will learn various strategies to handle these cravings, such as mindfulness techniques, distraction tactics or seeking support from your peers, family or counsellors.
Facing up to difficult emotions…
As you stop using zopiclone, suppressed emotions are likely to surface. This can be a challenging experience, but remember; therapy is there to help you navigate this emotional landscape. Your therapists can provide you with tools to handle these emotions effectively, reducing the risk of relapse.
Building a new life and identity…
Part of your journey will involve distancing yourself from the identity of an addict. This can be challenging, as it involves changing thought patterns, behaviours and possibly even your social networks and environment. Zopiclone rehab offers guidance and support as you work to establish this new, healthier identity.
