Xanax withdrawal symptoms are severe and include seizures, so medical detoxification is required when deciding to seek drug treatment. Other withdrawal symptoms include dysphoria, emotional bereavement, and panic attacks and anxiety that results in bodily shakes and rapid heart rates. At best, Xanax withdrawals are uncomfortable and at worst dangerous.
Xanax detox can be mild for those who caught themselves in the early stages of dependence. In these cases, self drug detox has two problems. First, even mild withdrawal symptoms from Xanax can cause emotional anguish and anxiety. It would be difficult to carry on with normal daily activities, which could lead to isolation and further distress. Second, the ease of access to Xanax is a temptation to relapse.
Addicts will surely see the drug as the only cure for emotional pain. If no Xanax is in reach, all that is needed is a call to the doctor.
When dependence has been long-term and at high doses, self drug detox is very dangerous and nearly impossible. A real relationship has been formed between the addict and the pills. The strongest of wills would have an uphill battle with this endeavor. It is like saying that the only person you trust is a phone call away, and awaiting your call, but you must not call that person for help. Due to the delusional addict mind, and disconnect with reality, that call will definitely be made in short time.
Medical detoxification for Xanax addresses the body, mind, and addiction at Tarzana Treatment Centers residential drug detox program. Through the process of systematic withdrawal, patients are weaned off Xanax using medications that calm the body and prevent physical withdrawal symptoms. Medical staff can monitor patients’ progress and adjust dosages when necessary. Patients can also continue treatment for other medical conditions while detoxing.
Mental Health Treatment
Psychological staff works with patients on emotional issues that may be at the heart of the addiction problem. For patients who began taking Xanax to relieve emotional distress, it is likely that issues have gone unresolved. It is also likely that they have come to rely on Xanax to maintain emotional balance. Patients have the opportunity during drug detox to work through unresolved issues, or explore alternate treatment methods.
Addiction counselors can also help with the emotional issues surrounding Xanax addiction, along with relapse prevention and aftercare planning. Patients attend process groups and addiction education groups facilitated by counselors. Individual sessions are also conducted to identify relapse triggers, and to learn the tools that help avoid a relapse. Drug Treatment Counselors additionally offer guidance where aftercare is desired, and provide resources for patients to choose from.
