SOMA® DETOX PROGRAM
New Beginnings Recovery Services (NBRC) offers a safe Soma® detoxification program on an outpatient basis. Attempting to withdraw from Soma® without medical support can result in seizures or other complications.
Soma® (generic name Carisoprodol) is a prescription muscle relaxer that is frequently prescribed to treat musculoskeletal pain and muscle spasms. Typically it is used in conjunction with physical therapy to treat injuries and other painful musculoskeletal conditions. When dosages exceed what is recommended by physicians, Soma® usually causes drowsiness, giddiness, and relaxation and sometime euphoria; because of its sedative effects and potential for abuse, Soma® is a Schedule IV drug in the US.
Because it acts on the central nervous system (CNS) by blocking pain sensations between the nerves and the brain, some people who have sustained physical injury or trauma may have initially been prescribed Soma® and then become dependent after the injury has healed. Soma® has been known to be combined with other drugs or alcohol to enhance the effect.
Soma® usage can be quite habit forming. Users of Soma® develop tolerance and can become dependant and addiction is common. Stopping taking this drug abruptly or tapering too quickly can result in severe medical problems. Detoxification from Soma® should always be under the care of and experienced addiction physician. Most patients can be safely detoxed in just a few short weeks.
Drug name: Soma® (Carisoprodol)
Category: Skeletal Muscle Relaxant
Drug Type / Action: Skeletal muscle relaxants act on the central nervous system (CNS) to produce their muscle relaxant effects. Their actions in the CNS may also produce some of the side effects.
Common symptoms involve depression, insomnia, anxiety, fatigue, irritability, and restlessness. Powerful and effective medications are now available to reduce cravings from cocaine and crack cocaine. Withdrawal symptoms are monitored by our staff.
In the past few years medications have been developed that target neurochemistry and work with neurotransmitters in your brain. The result is that we now have miraculous medications that really can reduce cravings with little side effects. These medications can also curb usage especially in chronic users. In the past, cocaine addicted users have had little or no options for detoxification. Our highly refined and effective detox program utilizes the best and latest powerful medications. NBRC offers all patients an optional psychiatric evaluation that is included in the price of basic program. Identifying underlying co-occurring disorders may have a powerful impact on the overall treatment.
Are you taking Soma® habitually? Have you become dependant on Soma®?
Do you get withdrawal symptoms when you try to stop?
If the answer of any of these questions is YES - we can help you get SOMA out of your life. The side effects and the withdrawal symptoms are similar to benzodiazepines such as Valium® and Xanax®. Review the list of side effects listed below.
COMMON SIDE EFFECTS OF Soma® (Carisoprodol)
The drugs that produce physical dependencies typically have 2 different types of withdrawal symptoms: Acute Withdrawal Symptoms (Immediate) and Post Acute Withdrawal Symptoms (Delayed)
Acute Withdrawal Symptoms from Soma (Carisoprodol) Addiction
Acute Withdrawal Symptoms occur immediately after the drug usage has stopped. These acute symptoms can continue for up to ten days depending on the amount of Soma® taken and how long the episode of usage was.
Some of the common acute withdrawal symptoms associated with Soma® addiction and treated by NBD include:
Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptoms from Soma Addiction (PAWS)
While in active addiction, the Soma® user experiences a disruption to the normal brain activity which impairs clear thinking and emotion expression. Additionally, short-term memory loss, lack of coordination, sleep disturbances and stress are all part of Post Acute Withdrawal Symptoms (PAWS) and can make the recovery process sometimes long and difficult.
As a result of continued abuse of Soma®, the brain needs to make an adjustment in order to "right itself" as neurotransmitters return to normalcy and acclimate to a life without mood altering chemicals. This sometime takes time and that is where post acute withdrawal symptoms come in, they are like lingering withdrawal.
Some of the post-acute withdrawal symptoms stemming from Soma® addiction are:
Like other prescription drugs, the prolonged use and abuse of Soma® is associated with tolerance, dependence and addiction. The signs and symptoms are similar to those that can be found accompanying the abuse of other prescription medications with tranquilizer or sedative effects such as Valium® or Xanax®.

How it Works:
Intake Interview and Psychosocial Assessment
A preliminary assessment is conducted and the patient is evaluated to determine if they are eligible for the Out-Patient Program. The NBRC Program requirements, the various treatment options, length of treatment, and the fee structure are all discussed. A confidential interview and intake and orientation is conducted. Afterward, a psychosocial assessment is performed by a member of our staff.
Pre-Procedure Medical Evaluation
The detoxification process begins with all NBRC patients receiving a complete medical history and physical examination. This may include a laboratory analysis and urine toxicology screen. Our clinicians remain a part of the multi-disciplinary team that cares for the patient throughout detoxification
Induction Phase - Beginning the Process of Detoxification
The Induction Phase is the medically monitored startup of therapy. Medications may be prescribed at this time to reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings, assist with sleep and reduce anxiety.
Stabilization Phase – Controlling the Cravings
The Stabilization Phase has begun when the patient no longer has cravings for sleep aid medications.
Taper Phase – Getting Free
The Taper Phase is reached when the patient is doing well on prescribed medications and cravings have been minimized. The patient is then stepped-down from the medications until they are drug-free. Medications may be gradually switched in order to ensure a greater level of comfort during the detox
OPTIONAL OUT-PATIENT COUNSELING THERAPY
Although support counseling is included in the cost of the detox, patients have the option to attend an optional outpatient counseling program while in detox run by a team of experienced licensed Certified Addiction Professionals. We offer several group therapy options that will fit any schedule.
NBRC offers a variety of Psychiatric Services from Evaluation and Follow Up Treatment. Psychiatric Services are utilized to treat patients with Dual Diagnosis Disorder, or Co-Occurring Disorder. Frequently mental health disorders can lie underneath and in some cases fuel substance dependency. Some of the therapies utilized include Psychotherapy, Bio-Feedback Therapy, Hypnosis Therapy and Medication Management
All patients enrolled in our programs, have the option for a no cost Psychiatric Evaluation performed by a Board Certified Psychiatric staff member in addition to the basic services of each program. Ongoing Psychiatric Services are also an option for our patients.
So now those that have struggled with depression, anxiety or any other co-occurring disorder, have the opportunity to get the substance dependency and the underlying psychiatric issues treated concurrently.
