Zopiclone (Imovane) is a sleeping pill commonly prescribed on the NHS to treat insomnia. The drug was first introduced in 1986. The drug is very similar to Lunesta. Zopiclone is usually used for a short period of time to help insomnia suffers fall asleep faster and for a longer period of time. The drug is typically consumed in tablet form and it is even used in rehabilitation programmes to treat withdrawal symptoms associated with alcoholism. Zopiclone is classed as a non-benzodiazepine tranquiliser and works by depressing the central nervous system. If consumed for more than 2-3 weeks users develop a tolerance and addiction for Zopiclone.
Why Zopiclone rehab?
If you become dependant on Zopiclone then you require rehabilitating. Our residential rehabilitation centre in London offers a comprehensive 28 day Zopiclone detox and rehabilitation programme. During this time our medical team observes withdrawal symptoms associated with Zopiclone detoxification.
Such symptoms typically include:
- Mood swings
The above withdrawal symptoms typically occur in as little time as five hours since Zopiclone was last consumed. Withdrawal symptoms tend to decrease following the sixth day since Zopiclone was last consumed. Once the detox milestone has passed patients’ rehabilitation programme moves onto therapy and counselling sessions. Here the psychological aspect of Zopiclone addiction is treated. Patients receive mixed therapy sessions making use of cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness and dialectical behavioural therapy.
