Benzo Fury is a popular drug in the club scene and just as addictive as cocaine. Scientists who have studied the drug have noted that it can damage brain receptors of the hormone serotonin, leading to high blood pressure and eventually dependence. Legal highs like Benzo Fury have both short-term effects and long-term effects on the users and withdrawal symptoms are unpredictable.
When considering a treatment option, your first choice should be residential medical detox and rehabilitation. Medical professionals at a private rehab centre ensure that you detox safely from the drug whilst remaining comfortable. They use a personalised treatment plan designed just for you to administer treatment and address mental health issues associated with Benzo Fury such as anxiety, depression, psychosis and delusions.
There is no magic formula that will inform you when it’s time to seek treatment because each person has a different experience with addiction alongside their unique treatment needs. Many people put it off until they’ve reached rock bottom, but that is a dangerous situation. If you’re asking this questions, here are a few tips to guide your decision.
You drove under the influence of Benzo Fury: It might not seem like much but driving whilst intoxicated is a reckless action that puts your life and the lives of road users at risk. If you’re unable to make clear, coherent choices under the influence, it’s time to seek professional help.
You’re having legal problems: Did you recently get into a fight? Got a parking ticket? Drove onto the pavement or find that you’re constantly getting into run-ins with the law? This is a clear sign that your drug use is affecting your personal life.
Your friends and family have expressed concern over your drug use: Loved ones usually give you some time to make the decision on your own. When they realise that your drug use is becoming problematic and you’re not ready to seek help, they voice their concern. It is difficult to hear them say it but they love you and only want the best for you.
Health problems: Have you noticed any health issues since you began abusing Benzo Fury, such as insomnia, accelerated heart rate, anxiety, paranoia, or damage to your liver or kidneys? Has your doctor warned you about the effects of drug abuse on your health? Repeated use of stimulants causes psychosis and cardiovascular failure.
Options available for Benzo Fury treatment include:
Detox-only clinic: This is a medical facility that provides detox services. They help you get clean from Benzo Fury and provide medication where necessary for specific withdrawal symptoms.
Inpatient rehab: The most comprehensive treatment option for anyone who wants to maintain long-term abstinence from Benzo Fury. They offer detox services alongside therapy, educational classes, skill building and holistic treatment.
Outpatient rehab: The major difference from inpatient rehab is that you receive treatment from home. It offers flexibility for those who can’t take time off work or school to receive treatment as inpatients. It is not recommended for long-term addicts or those with a co-occurring disorder.
A private rehabilitation programme is a rehab centre that is funded from fees people pay when they enrol for treatment. They have more financial resources that allow them to offer a wider range of treatments than a government-funded programme and a low staff-to-patient ratio to ensure each patient receives highly personalised care. It costs more than a government facility as treatment is more exclusive and readily available. This means that you can access treatment the moment you decide to get help.
Primrose Lodge is one of such rehab centres in the UK. We offer cutting-edge addiction treatment provided by an experienced team of medical doctors, addiction-specialist nurses, recovery workers, addiction counsellors, psychotherapists and other support workers.
Our rehab is located in a serene area of Guildford, in a luxury facility surrounded by spacious grounds and gorgeous landscape. We offer 19-ensuite bedrooms, decorated to the highest standard, and furnished with all the comforts you need during your stay. Our fully-stocked kitchen is managed by an experienced chef who provides freshly prepared meals to all residents, made from local produce and fresh ingredients.
During leisure time, patients have access to Wi-Fi so they can relax and catch up with loved ones. Inside our fully-integrated medical detox and rehab centre, you’ll find one-on-one counselling tooms, treatment rooms, a dining area, an in-house gym, well-maintained gardens and a detox centre.
We also cater to the treatment needs of young people in the UK. Benzo Fury is a popular club drug mostly used by young people who are looking for a cheap alternative to other drugs. We particularly focus on young people aged 16-18 who need addiction treatment, including those struggling with a dual diagnosis of depression, anxiety or panic disorders.
Our services include:
Treatment starts from £1,000 at Primrose Lodge for counselling, £3,500 for a 10 day detox with limited therapy and £10,950 for 28 day detox, rehab and therapy.
We do however offer 28 day rehab for £5,500 at out sister clinic in Cheshire and here you will avail of one of the only clinics in the United Kingdom to score 100% on the Care Quality Commission review 2018 highlighting that cheaper cost does not mean cheaper care!
It might seem expensive, but when you consider the cost of maintaining an addiction, the impact it has on your family, the risk of overdose and the depleted financial resources that happen over time, treatment really is the cheaper option.
Every resident of the UK who is struggling with Benzo Fury addiction is entitled to NHS care, the same as anyone with a physical condition. The NHS advises patients to begin treatment with their local GP, who might be able to refer you to a specialised treatment programme for benzo addiction.
Alternatively, you could walk into any of the NHS treatment centres closest to you and get treatment yourself. If you’re having trouble finding an NHS treatment centre in your area, call our free helpline and we’ll direct you. NHS treatment is free. There is no cost for drugs, detox or rehab, although they usually have a long waiting list before you can access residential treatment.
There are local charities that provide drug and alcohol treatment, working alongside local councils and the NHS. Some of these charities don’t require you to be referred by a GP to receive treatment. Popular drug and alcohol charities include CGL, Addaction, Blenheim and Compass. You can also receive private drug treatment through your local NHS services.
Depending on the severity of your addiction and your treatment needs, detox is usually conducted in a group or community setting. Other services include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, substitute prescribing, access to self-help groups and harm reduction advice.
For individuals who prefer specific NHS treatment such as access to addiction counselling, detox and inpatient treatment, you will need a referral from your local GP. Your GP will perform an initial assessment to determine your addiction treatment needs. They usually refer patients to the NHS for counselling which is spread over 8 sessions. For addicts who have complex needs, they will refer you to a local drug and alcohol service such as a rehab centre or an addiction charity.
The problem with getting a referral from your GP is that they aren’t trained in addiction and their knowledge of Benzo Fury is limited. When they refer you for NHS counselling, there is a long waiting list of up to two months before you access the service. Only patients who are deemed high-risk are referred to inpatient treatment and there is an even longer waiting list of three to four months before you access rehab.
Your GP might prescribe medication for specific withdrawal symptoms associated with Benzo Fury. This includes medication for paranoia, panic attacks, hallucinations, depression and insomnia.
There isn’t a lot of research on Benzo Fury and not much is known about its chemical formula or metabolism. Medications are prescribed as symptoms manifest. You will be given anti-depressants to balance serotonin/dopamine levels in your brain and improve your mood, a list of recommended meals that restore nutrition deficiency and fluids to combat dehydration.
Treatment is free for all UK residents
They can reach more people through hubs and outreach programmes
Treatment could be successful if you have a willingness to get better
NHS services are free so there is always a long waiting list of people waiting to access services.
Medical doctors are overwhelmed. They are not equipped to make an in-depth diagnosis of Benzo Fury addiction, nor can they help you maintain abstinence because they don’t offer follow-up care.
Addiction charities are mostly funded by local councils, so their services are limited to people in a specific area.
Detox is mostly conducted in a community setting to save money, meaning you have no privacy.
There is only so much you can get from NHS services due to financial constraints, high staff to patient ratio and time taken to access treatment.
You don’t have medical support at home. The risk of relapse is high if you’re receiving treatment while in a toxic environment that encourages your drug habits.
The guiding principle of fellowship support groups is that you can overcome your addiction and maintain abstinence from drugs by walking the 12-steps and regularly attending meetings.
Also known as mutual aid or recovery support groups, they are made up of men and women who have a common addiction. They share experiences, coping strategies and offer practical support to help you overcome addiction.
Narcotics Anonymous is a 12-step group modelled after Alcoholic Anonymous. Members believe that they are helpless against their addiction and seek strength to overcome their addiction from a higher power. They also believe that any use of a mood-altering substance leads to relapse.
Going to meetings on a weekly basis has helped many members maintain sobriety whilst building a network of sober friends. Meetings keep you committed to recovery and help you maintain stability during tough times.
Narcotic Anonymous only works if you’re committed to recovery. The importance of this group and other 12-step groups cannot be overstated. The most important service they offer is the community they provide. Addiction isolates, and it’s important to surround yourself with people who understand your journey.
Going to meetings even after you’ve been attending for years helps to put things in perspective. By listening to the stories of others, the price they’ve paid for addiction and how difficult it was for them to get clean, it motivates you to maintain abstinence.
Pros and Cons

Lifelong support for Benzo Fury addiction
No requirement or membership fees to join
Addiction is a mental health problem that leaves its mark on your emotions, psychological state, professional life and personal relationships. Removing the drugs from your system isn’t enough for lifelong abstinence. The goal of private counselling is to help you recover safely from drug abuse by addressing all the underlying reasons for why you abused drugs and treating each psychological scar left by drug abuse.
When you abuse Benzo Fury, you might struggle with psychosis, anxiety, delusions, paranoia, panic attacks, depression and mood swings among other issues. Private counselling helps to minimise these feelings through behavioural and talking therapies. Therapy techniques used to treat Benzo Fury addiction include Motivational Enhancement Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Contingency Management.
A treatment plan is developed in which you enrol at a rehab centre. Counselling sessions are based on the goals established at initial assessment. Goals are further broken down into short-term goals that will be achieved while in rehab and long-term goals for after rehab. The short-term goals are to eliminate drug abuse, restore sleep and healthy eating patterns, improve self-esteem and reduce anger, stress and depression.
Before sessions, you’ll be asked to provide a urine sample to test for drugs and you’ll be given a reward such as a voucher if you’re clean. As time passes, the reward gets bigger. Incorporating immediate rewards provides instant gratification and a sense of self-accomplishment. The duration of therapy isn’t defined. You’ll know that therapy is working when you feel a sense of hope, improved resilience to temptation and a general feeling of wellbeing.
Pros and Cons
Therapy is a work in progress. You have the unique opportunity to examine all your life choices that influenced your addiction, including your thoughts, feelings and behaviours
Getting professional advice from an objective person who has no ulterior motive
The privacy that ensures all discussions never leave the room
Medications offer pain relief but they’re only a temporary solution. The payoff of good therapy lasts the rest of your life
Learning skills that will help you cope with triggers without relapsing
It takes longer than drug therapy to show results
Paying out of pocket if you don’t have insurance
Benzo Fury contains stimulant and hallucinogenic compounds, similar to MDMA. No one knows what is really inside the substance because the compounds keep changing. It contains addictive properties that make it difficult to detox or receive treatment as an outpatient. If you’re struggling with Benzo Fury addiction, the best choice is to receive treatment as an inpatient.
Our rehab centre offers a tailored legal high rehab treatment plan designed to fit your unique needs. We incorporate medication to treat specific withdrawal symptoms, group therapies, individual therapy and holistic therapies. The family is an important part of recovery, so we include them in treatment through family therapy sessions led by a licensed therapist. The withdrawal symptoms from Benzo Fury can be overwhelming and life-threatening if not properly managed in a medically-supervised environment.
Your rehabilitation has a better chance of success if you recover in a therapeutic environment that is conducive for your mental and physical health. Private rehabs in the UK are located away from the city, in a serene area where you will enjoy peace and quiet. The location helps to remove the fear of exposure that may have prevented you from seeking treatment in the past.
Treatment doesn’t end when you’ve completed rehab. We offer a comprehensive aftercare support plan to guide your recovery after you’ve completed treatment. The 12-step programme is at the core of our treatment and we encourage alumni to continue attending fellowship meetings even after they’ve completed treatment, because it is the most essential part of any relapse prevention plan.
