Tarzana Treatment Centers offers specialized drug treatment programs to address the various aspects of Xanax addiction and recovery, including drug detox. If you already know that you or a loved one needs help, please call us for drug treatment at 888-777-8565 or contact us by email here. If you need more information, read below.

Xanax Addiction

Xanax is a benzodiazepine that is prescribed to relieve anxiety, and is quite effective for short-term use. Problems begin when Xanax is taken in higher doses or for longer terms. Xanax addiction is the result of a gradual process where person slowly becomes dependent on the drug. In the end, medical detoxification and addiction treatment are necessary to stop the process.

Recreational Use

It is now more common for youth to know someone who uses Xanax recreationally than it is to know someone who takes it as prescribed by a doctor. It has become very popular for poly-use in combination with alcohol, depressants, and stimulants. Cocaine and methamphetamine users may take Xanax to “come down” from a high, allowing them to sleep.

Tolerance by Prescription

Those who take Xanax as prescribed by a doctor are informed that the drug may stop working, and that they should consult a physician if this occurs. This phenomenon is called tolerance, which means that the body needs more of the drug to achieve the same effect. The suggested action will probably be to take a stronger dosage in order to continue treatment of anxiety. Patients should take care at this point because it is the first sign of physical dependence and generally leads to Xanax addiction.

Cycle of Addiction

Physical Xanax dependence seems harmless at first. Tolerance and increased usage is progressive and does not stop. Xanax withdrawal symptoms are severe and include seizure. A cycle of curing these symptoms by taking Xanax becomes a way of life. Once the cycle begins, it can only be halted with Xanax addiction treatment starting with medical detoxification.

Consider Xanax addiction as a part of the human psyche. It does not care how it came to be a part of a person. It just is. So every Xanax addict needs Xanax addiction treatment.

Treatment

At Tarzana Treatment Centers, addiction counselors are staffed in the medical detoxification unit to aid in the process of recovery. Xanax addiction is very strong and convinces the addict that the drug is needed for survival. Early intervention in this belief is vital.

After detoxing from Xanax, outpatient or residential drug treatment is recommended to ensure long-term recovery. The emotional aspects of Xanax addiction need to be addressed after the physical dependence has been relieved. Process groups and one-to-one counseling leads patients to an understanding that they can live a good life without Xanax.
