Good Morning Ken
Please do seek a second opinion re your Valium issues. I also do not think you are a candidate for a drug detox program, but instead a very slow weaning process to reduce your dosage to what you and your physician agree upon.
Take care my friend.
Hi Ken. You know, I was on Valium for about 6 months and honestly, I found that they didn't do anything for me. In fact, I asked to be put on Klonapin instead and still I don't feel anything. I am not a doctor, but I don't think you need to go into a detox hospital. Maybe just change from Valium to a different med in the same family. However, I would be "straight up" with your doctor to get the "monkey off your back". In any case, if you decide to stop taking it, I would recommend that you do it very slowly.
I hope this helps a bit.
