Parents who are in the dark about their child’s addiction can learn the dangers of mixing benzodiazepines with alcohol from an addict firsthand in this new post from New Life House's blog, Into the Heart of Addiction.

Julia is sober since 2012. She is an artist with a passion for creativity and expression. She devotes the majority of her time to work with young women who struggle with addiction.

When I think of benzodiazepines and alcohol I think 'Black Out.'

Parents who need some tips and solutions about what their children are addicted to are encouraged to read the new blog post titled The Dangers of Mixing Benzos and Alcohol. Writer and recovering addict, Julia Taft, shares what happened to her experimenting with this lethal combination of substances.

“It is feasible to have bad judgment while drunk, and a lot easier when on benzos and alcohol. The black out can happen quickly,” Julia shares honestly from the addict’s point of view. She discusses what it feels like just prior to a black out and what can happen during a black out.

As the blog post highlights:

  • Easy accessibility makes young people more at risk
  • Medical complications of mixing pills and alcohol
  • Dangers of withdrawal

Into the Heart of Addiction is New Life House recovery community’s resource for parents and families of substance abusing youth. Writers are recovered addicts and alcoholics, their parents and professionals, who supply the public with an in depth look at the reality of substance abuse and the family system. New Life House believes that change and recovery occur as a result of living in a peer-centered community where young people and parents are held accountable.

“This is a process that cannot be side stepped; being accountable is essential and ultimately the saving grace for a drug addict,” says New Life CEO Mike Joly.
