What is Xanax?
Xanax is a benzodiazepine used to treat panic and anxiety disorders. What many people do not know is that Xanax is never meant to be used for more than six weeks at a time. With so many references to Xanax in pop culture, the public can tend to think that it is acceptable to just take one whenever it is needed. This is not the case. Extended use of Xanax usually always develops into a full blown addiction. Physical dependence on this drug can cause serious side effects, and a clinically managed detox (like the ones at Intervention Drug Rehab Association) is always suggested as the first step in addressing the addiction.
How Do You Know You’re Addicted?
Physical addiction does not always occur in every individual who takes it. Symptoms of physical addiction can occur just from taking Xanax long term. Xanax addiction is instead characterized by psychological side effects such as craving or compulsion to use the drug, taking more than prescribed, and continued use of the drug in spite of recurring negative consequences. We know that seeking a drug rehab program can sometimes seem overwhelming and scary; however, when you enroll in an addiction treatment program for Xanax, you will learn how to address the real reasons you take the drug so often. Working with empathetic counselors will allow you to delve into the emotional and psychological reasons behind the use.
What is Rehab Like?
There are several types of drug rehab programs that are suitable for a Xanax addiction. A residential inpatient treatment program allows the client to focus on recovery 24/7 under the supervision of professionals. Outpatient programs can also helpful, as they equip the client with coping strategies to continue their daily lives while recovering. There will always be a screening and assessment of the addiction followed by a detox program. Afterwards the client will focus on individual counseling and group therapy as vehicles to discover the root of the addiction.
What is the Right Amount of Treatment?
Treatment differs from client to client and is determined with a case manager upon intake. There are many advantages to completing every stage of treatment from detox to aftercare. Intervention Drug Rehab Association’s goal is to help every client begin a new life of sobriety. Toward the end of treatment, we offer educational classes and services designed to help our clients stay sober after treatment comes to an end. We highly recommend getting involved in your local NA program, and we are happy to help you locate the nearest chapter. Have a sober network of support is crucial.
