Drug and alcohol addiction has now become a serious and a truly concerning problem, one of which without a doubt needs to be addressed and worked on sooner rather than later. It is to the point now where according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has labeled drug and alcohol addiction to actually be a full-on epidemic in this country. This is the first time that drug and alcohol addiction has actually earned the title of being an epidemic. Prior to this labeling that occurred in 2012 (and the problem has only gotten worse since), drug and alcohol addiction was only ever at the level of being a crisis. Now, however, that has all changed and the problem truly is at the point of actually being a full-on epidemic. While it is common knowledge at this point that drug and alcohol addiction is a serious crisis, it is not exactly well-known all of the intricate details, aspects, and facets to drug and alcohol addiction. These factors truly are not as well-known as they should be. For example, one drug that has risen in popularity for recreational use that not many other people know about yet is the drug Flunitrazepam.

Flunitrazepam is the generic name for Rohypnol. This is a fast acting sedative drug that is sometimes prescribed in Mexico and other South American countries to treat insomnia. The drug can cause overdoses, and the drug can create a loss of consciousness, coma, death, and a wide plethora of different, negative consequences.


Flunitrazepam is not a new drug. This drug has been around since 1972 and was made by Roche Pharmaceuticals in Europe. The drug is a very powerful sedative, and the substance was never intended for over the counter or prescription use. It was actually intended to sedate patients prior to surgery. That’s how powerful this drug is. Later on, the drug started to get prescribed for patients who suffered from sleep deprivation or intensive anxiety. The drug is not available for purchase legally in the United States.

Flunitrazepam, The Addictive Drug

Flunitrazepam is addictive. What is Flunitrazepam, other than a sleep-inducing drug? Well, it is also a drug that can cause both chemical and mental dependency issues too. Flunitrazepam effects are grim when taken recreationally or when self-medicated.

Flunitrazepam is very, very potent. Actually, overdose can occur when a person just takes a little more than two milligrams of the substance at any, one time.

Here are some signs and symptoms of an overdose on Flunitrazepam and the effects of Flunitrazepam:

  • Drowsiness and not being able to stay awake.
  • Loss of coordination and an inability to perform basic motor functions.
  • Slurring one’s speech, not talking right, having difficulty speaking in general.
  • Having a hard time breathing. Experiencing respiratory problems and difficulties in general.
  • Lethargy and an overall trouble with breathing and oxygenating blood.
  • Confusions, disorientation, lack of cognitive thought, being unsure of one’s surroundings.
  • Blacking out, slipping into a coma, losing consciousness, passing in and out of wakefulness.

To aid a person in spotting Flunitrazepam, here are some other names for the drug:

  • Ilman
  • Insom
  • Nilium
  • Silece
  • Darkene
  • Hipnosedon

Addressing an Addiction to Flunitrazepam

Just as is the case with any other type of addiction problem, the best by far way to tackle an addiction to Flunitrazepam is with the help of an inpatient drug and alcohol addiction treatment center and recovery program. These treatment centers offer the most effective approaches out of an addiction struggle available, and these approaches are known for being able to help people find their path to freedom from drug and alcohol addiction.

Inpatient drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers offer two, key approaches to treating addiction that cannot be found anywhere else:

  • Detoxification. With an addiction to something like Flunitrazepam, a person is going to need detox. By this is meant that they are going to need help with the actual process of coming down off the physical drug itself that is Flunitrazepam. Flunitrazepam creates a chemical dependency issue in a person, creating cravings and withdrawals if the person goes too long without taking it. A detox approach at a treatment center can provide an assisted withdrawal process to make coming down off of the drug easy and pain-free.
  • Rehabilitation. Rehabilitation is the next step for anyone who is trying to go free from an addiction struggle. Rehabilitation is key and is very necessary for helping people in their efforts to come down off of drugs and alcohol once and for all and for good. In this way, people can actually address all of the mental, psychological, spiritual, and personal aspects of drug and alcohol addiction and all that goes into these problems and crisis factors.
