    What are Barbiturates?

    are a type of depressant drug that cause relaxation and sleepiness. In relatively low doses, barbiturates and alcohol have very similar clinical syndromes of intoxication.

    Explanations and Other Terms Related to Barbiturates

    Barbiturates are drugs that act as central nervous system depressants, and can therefore produce a wide spectrum of effects, from mild sedation to total anesthesia. They are also effective as anxiolytics, hypnotics, and anticonvulsants. Barbiturates also have analgesic effects; however, these effects are somewhat weak, preventing barbiturates from being used in surgery in the absence of other analgesics. They have addiction potential, both physical and psychological. Barbiturates have now largely been replaced by benzodiazepines in routine medical practice – for example, in the treatment of anxiety and insomnia – mainly because benzodiazepines are significantly less dangerous in overdose.

    Addiction Treatment - Barbiturates

    Addiction treatment for primary drug and alcohol abuse, along with associated disorders caused by them involves intense rehabilitation (including intervention) and proven therapy methods. Structured in a way, such that all activities and time is focused on recovery, this process ensures eradication of negative behavior from drug abuse or alcohol addiction.

    Primary treatment also known as residential treatment is to help individuals discover and find solutions to problems that have troubled them. These primary treatment programs have worked integrally to foster an environment equipped for the recovery process of individuals suffering from drug or alcohol addiction. Experienced staff, which are professionally trained including psychologists, nurses, and therapists provide the safest setting possible for recovery from addiction.


Selecting a fully licensed and accredited treatment center is very important. All of our listed substance abuse recovery resources on RecoveryNowTV are licensed and certified in the field of primary treatment of alcohol abuse and drug addiction. These programs offers a very structured and in many instances a unique therapy process to the client that enables them to focus on the initial causes of their addictions. They understand that each client is different and has different needs and issues. They also work to address those issues in daily educational groups and with one on one private sessions with a licensed staff member.

    Long Term Recovery - Outpatient Programs and Other Support

    According to the Centers for Disease Control, “Individuals need to be engaged in treatment for an adequate length of time. For example, participation in outpatient or residential programs for less than 90 days is of limited or no effectiveness.”

    Outpatient programs provide clients with more freedom of movement (unlike in residential programs) which allows them to maintain a regular commitment to family, work, and educational responsibilities. Outpatient drug and alcohol treatment programs share many similarities with residential treatment programs, but in a differently structured environment.

    Support groups

    It is suggested for many former clients to regularly attend support group meetings with other members who share their particular recovery problem. This can be a 12-step meeting, religious/spiritual group or medically supervised setting. It is in this spirit that members often identify themselves along with an admission of their problem.

    • Jack from Tampa, FL:

      Jack, writes:
      Cindy, yesterday my wife and I had dinner at a restaurant. She had at least 6 glasses of wine during dinner. She drinks this much at one sitting at least 3 times a week. Is this alcoholism?

      Cindy, writes: 
      Jack, your wife’s behavior sounds like binge drinking. Binge drinking means having four or more drinks in one session; it’s drinking to get drunk. Binge drinking becomes alcoholism when the drinking begins to cause problems and the drinking continues despite the problems.

    • Emily from New York, NY:

      Emily, writes:
      Cindy, I found a needle in my son’s room and what resembles Heroin. Clearly I need to seek treatment for my son. My question concerns Methadone, as that term has been coming up quite a bit as I’ve researched detox programs for him. Is Methadone maintenance a necessary component of recovery?

      Cindy, writes: 
      Emily, Methadone maintenance is not necessary. With that said, research has demonstrated that Methadone maintenance treatment is an effective treatment for heroin and prescription narcotic addiction.

    • Reed from Long Beach, CA:

      Reed, writes:
      Cindy, I have a couple of drinks every day after work to feel good and ease my mind. At what point does consumption of alcohol become alcoholism?

      Cindy, writes: 
      Reed, to be honest, there is no litmus test. Although, using alcohol to feel good is often the beginning stage of alcoholism. So, if you drink to feel good, you should ask yourself if you can also feel at ease without alcohol.

    Cindy has been in recovery for 17yrs. Her personal
    experience with intervention and treatment helps
    her to better assist with compassion and commitment.
