    I discussed the need for detox with them and they made the arrangements and supervised the activites at the hospital.

    As to the issue of Librium and Avtivan ... I guess the question is what is the medication type the maybe causing the most issues of denpendency/habituation .... In my case it was strong opiates so the issues of mild benzodiazapines was not of concern. Shoot when chronic alcoholics go through detox they are typically given valium to reduce the potential of sezuires.

    If I was qualified to make any suggestion I would say one med at a time ... pick the most potentially habituating to handle inpatient and follow the physicians instructions appropriately.

    The goal of the large doesages of librium are to basically have you slept through the nasty physical side effefts of opiate detoxification. Benzodiazapine detox is a completely different protocol.
