  • Increase in Pharmaceutical Prescriptions generally
  • A failure of Governments worldwide to do enough to stop Etizolam addiction and related deaths
  • Societal thinking regarding addicts and Etizolam addiction
  • Lack of Harm Reduction methods around Etizolam usage

Further reading about Etizolam from around the web

Etizolam (marketed under many brand names) is a thienodiazepine derivative which is a benzodiazepine analog. The etizolam molecule differs from a benzodiazepine in that the benzene ring has been replaced by a thiophene ring and triazole ring has been fused, making the drug a thienotriazolodiazepine.

Although a thienodiazepine, etizolam is clinically regarded as a benzodiazepine because of its mode of action via the benzodiazepine receptor and directly targeting GABAA allosteric modulator receptors.

Etizolam Withdrawal at a Rehab


Detoxing from Etizolam within a treatment facility ensures medical help if it’s needed during the treatment process.

Rapid Detox from Etizolam


Rapid detox from Etizolam is a controversial topic and one that is unlikely to be accepted by everyone for its positive uses. It is a concept that has helped individuals addicted to Etizolam and other drugs kick the habit and gain the help they need to live a healthier lifestyle.


A patient undergoing a rapid detox from Etizolam is put under anesthesia for up to six hours. During this time, an opioid antagonist drug such as naltrexone is used to remove the Etizolam from the patient’s body. Rapid detox can alleviate some of the more distressing symptoms of Etizolam withdrawal.
