I have a friend who has been on Ativan for almost 25 years. He has lived with me three months. Each month because of overtaking his Ativan he goes though withdrawals for about a week then gets new scrip and restarts them again. This month after starting them again for 2 days he decided to stop cold. He has been in severe withdrawals now for 8 days. I have told him I want him under doctor’s care if he wants to stop and to do it gradually. He does not have faith in the medical field at all (after all they are the ones who put him on them) and has refused to get help. He is an addict and admits to abusing the Ativan and says he wants off of it totally. He is a Christian and attends Celebrate Recovery. He wants to talk with me tonight is there any info I can give him that may help him make correct decisions?
