Effective and Affordable Valium Addiction Treatment for Saudis at The Cabin Chiang Mai
Valium is a highly addictive drug that, when misused, has life-shattering effects.
Valium, also known as Diazepam, is a psychoactive drug in the benzodiazepine family. It’s typically prescribed by doctors to treat anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, seizures, muscle spasms, restless leg syndrome and acute alcohol withdrawal. Valium increases GABA neurotransmitters in the brain that produce a sedative effect, causing drowsiness and muscle relaxation.
Valium users can develop a tolerance in as little as a few weeks. Once tolerance sets in, a higher and higher dose is needed to achieve the same result – and it can quickly spiral out of control.
Long-term use causes structural changes to the brain that impair one’s ability to naturally relax without the drug – so catching addiction early is critical.

How Valium Detox Works
Valium has a long withdrawal period compared to other prescription drugs.
Symptoms come in waves of varying severity. The intense effects of initial detox can last up to three days, and subtle symptoms or rebound effects can last up to a month – or even longer, in some cases. Physical withdrawal symptoms from Valium include tremors, vomiting, convulsions, anxiety and sweating. Too sudden of a detox can lead to what’s known as a ‘brain rebound’ and can cause seizures.
We have an international-standard hospital at The Cabin, staffed by a professional medical team experienced in treating withdrawal symptoms. Our team of doctors and nurses will closely monitor the reaction of each client and perform frequent medical check-ups to ensure their safety. Under the supervision of Thailand’s top detox specialist, our team will utilise a taper-down detox programme that includes the administration of specific detox medication as needed.
Valium addiction is often paired with a co-occurring psychological disorder, such as anxiety or depression. It’s important, in Valium addiction treatment, to identify and treat any underlying factors that may have contributed to the addiction and treat them simultaneously.
At The Cabin Chiang Mai, we have developed a unique programme called Recovery Zones that will identify and treat Valium addiction and any related psychological disorders in tandem. Recovery Zones is a unique counselling programme that uses a combination of individual and group counselling, a culturally-sensitive version of the 12-Step techniques, cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness exercises. Recovery Zones helps our clients achieve complete, sustainable recovery.
Our experienced addiction counsellors will also collaborate with you to develop a personalised exercise and nutrition plan to improve your physical and mental health, making you more resilient and less likely to relapse. They’ll also teach you how to recognise and cope with your triggers and design an aftercare plan to maintain long-term sobriety.
