Lunesta Addiction Treatment at Alta Mira


Lunesta (eszopiclone) can be effective as a short-term remedy for sleeplessness. But when abused, it can be highly addictive. Our comprehensive treatment program offers you the tools you need for lasting recovery from Lunesta addiction, giving you greater hope for a brighter, safer, and healthier future.

Safe, Medically-Supervised Detox

If deemed clinically necessary, to avoid any dangerous or powerful withdrawal symptoms, you may begin your recovery in medically-supervised detox. Once you’re feeling better, you’ll undergo an extensive diagnostic evaluation before moving on to formal treatment. Your treatment plan may include services for co-occurring mental or behavioral health disorders, if any are diagnosed during your assessments.

Individual Treatment Plans

Lunesta treatment plans at Alta Mira include daily therapy sessions, with individual counseling forming the core of your recovery program. Peer group and family therapy sessions may also be incorporated into your goals for recovery.. Your individualized treatment plan will be carefully customized to guarantee you receive the proper mixture of evidence-based treatment services, which will empower your recovery and leave you prepared for a life free from drug abuse.

Comprehensive Continuing Care

We are committed to a collaborative care approach to your Lunesta addiction treatment, inclusive of all outside treatment professionals who are already working with you. We recognize the role of each doctor, psychiatrist, therapist, hospital, or treatment center is vital to your well-being and successful recovery and we engage all outside professionals before admissions, throughout treatment, and post-discharge to ensure your best possible results.

Positive Treatment Outcomes

We care about our client’s outcomes and work with an independent third-party research group, Vista Research Group, to evaluate our clients’ progress both during and following their residential treatment at Alta Mira.

Effective Treatments for Co-Occurring Disorders with Lunesta Addiction


Many people who develop drug dependency have underlying mental health conditions that play a causal role in their substance abuse issues. Alta Mira treatment programs always include comprehensive services for such conditions when they are diagnosed, which is essential for restoring your mental, emotional, and physical health.

Evidence-Based Treatment Modalities

Alta Mira treatment plans for Lunesta dependency rely exclusively on evidence-based treatment methods. Your recovery plan will be personalized to meet your individual needs, but will only include therapies and complementary services that have proven effective at helping others gain control over their addictive behavior.

Some of the most effective therapies against Lunesta addiction include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Somatic Awareness, any or all of which may be incorporated into your recovery program. You may also attend relapse prevention classes, participate in trauma-focused workshops, or learn holistic mind-body techniques for managing stress and anxiety.

Accurate Diagnosis

Effective treatment for Lunesta addiction requires a thorough and accurate diagnosis, which will identify any co-occurring mental or behavioral health conditions that might be present in addition to your sleeping medication dependency. Diagnostic procedures will include an initial in-depth evaluation by an Alta Mira staff psychiatrist, plus additional neuropsychological testing procedures administered by experts in the field.

Appropriate Medications

Tapering off Lunesta gradually, over a period of weeks, should be enough to control the most debilitating withdrawal symptoms and prevent relapse. If a co-occurring anxiety disorder or depression has been diagnosed, antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications may be prescribed to help control those conditions. Regardless of what medications are prescribed, your use of those substances will be monitored and managed by knowledgeable Alta Mira treatment professionals.

How to Help a Loved One Get Treatment for Lunesta Addiction


The Challenge

Sleeping pill addiction is a stealth condition. It develops quickly, and those who have it may not recognize what has happened. You may have to convince them they need help even if they don’t see it, which isn’t always simple. But your love and support are essential for their recovery, and your most compassionate and determined efforts may be necessary to convince them to accept the truth and seek help.

Recognizing Lunesta Addiction

How can you know for sure if your loved one has become addicted to Lunesta? Here are some telltale symptoms:

  • Daytime drowsiness
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Equilibrium problems
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Stuffed or runny nose
  • Hallucinations
  • Rebound insomnia
  • Losing consciousness

Using Lunesta in larger amounts than prescribed is always dangerous and a sure sign of trouble. Mixing Lunesta with other drugs or alcohol is another indicator of serious addiction, and this type of behavior will dramatically increase the likelihood of a potentially fatal overdose.

Get Help for Yourself

Your loved one’s struggle with drug dependency will have an adverse effect on everyone in the family. Even though you want to take care of your partner, child, parent, or sibling, giving them the caring support they need, you shouldn’t neglect your own emotional and psychological needs.

To help you manage the stress and worry, you should consider attending support group meetings in your area. Nar-Anon is the most well-known organization that offers wellness services for family members of people with drug abuse issues, and they have groups meeting all over the country. But there may be other groups in your area as well, especially if you live in a mid- to large-sized city.

Consider an Interventionist

Despite your earnest pleas, your spouse, parent, child, or friend may refuse to admit the truth about their Lunesta abuse. If this persists, you should consider bringing in a trained professional interventionist to support your efforts to make them see the light. These trained experts can help you organize an intervention that will persuade your loved one to finally seek treatment for their drug addiction.

If you’re ready to consider intervention and would like to find someone to help, please contact the admissions office at Alta Mira right away to discuss your options.

Lasting Change for a Better Life


The Courage to Change

Your Lunesta addiction is threatening your future and could leave you facing serious health consequences. But if you have the desire and the fortitude to change, and are finally ready to confront this major challenge, you can conquer your addiction and finally put your Lunesta abuse in the past. You have what it takes to win this fight, and we can help you complete your journey to sobriety.

Better Drug Treatment Outcomes

Alta Mira’s comprehensive and intensive 90-day residential treatment program will offer indispensable support to your efforts to recover from Lunesta addiction. If you have co-occurring disorders, as so many people with drug dependency do, the extensive therapeutic guidance you’ll receive in this program can boost your chances of recovery dramatically.

After treatment ends, you’ll transition into a continuing care program that will bolster your efforts to remain clean and sober. Continuing therapy will help you stay focused on your long-term goals, as you strive to complete a profound and lasting transformation that will return you to your family healthy and whole.

Working and Healing Together
