Xanax Rehab

Xanax Rehab Detox TreatmentXanax is a medication used to treat various forms of anxiety and panic disorders, but due to the “high” that people get when they take it in ways other than it was prescribed, abuse and addiction are common. Xanax rehab centers are often the only way that people can get help.

What is the Purpose of Xanax Rehab Centers?

With around 125,000 Americans going to the emergency room every year due to Xanax abuse, there is a great need for rehab centers that can help a person deal with this addictive prescription drug. Xanax is a benzodiazepine and is 20 times more powerful than Valium. Due to the tolerance that develops from repeated use, some people may start to take up to 20 tablets a day to sustain their addiction. In such severe cases, Xanax rehab programs are needed.

In a rehab program, a person can expect to go through a withdrawal phase where antidepressants are often used to help with Xanax withdrawal symptoms as depression is one of the biggest concerns. Once the detox period is over, the patient will attend a program designed to help them with their psychological addiction to Xanax. Instead of turning to drug abuse, a patient is taught new skills that can help them with trigger emotions and situations that normally lead to Xanax abuse.

Xanax Addiction Treatment vs. Xanax Detox

People often have the idea that detox is a cure for an addiction, but it is only the first step in the recovery process. Additionally, there are many home-detox programs on the market; however, it is not a good idea to detox from a severe addiction alone. A facility is able to provide the kind of care and support a person needs when going through the withdrawal process.

Xanax addiction treatment usually starts with detox and then it is followed up with a behavioral treatment to address the psychological aspects of their addiction; the reason why they turn to drug abuse to resolve or avoid their problems. Detox is not a cure and without further treatment, a person will likely relapse.

What are the Benefits of Rehab?

There are many benefits of attending a rehab program for Xanax abuse over trying to stop alone. The following points show what some of the benefits are:

  • Receive personalized care – There is no one treatment approach that works for everyone; therefore, it requires a program tailored to a person’s particular needs in order to effectively break an addiction.
  • Support – Many people with a drug problem don’t have support from people other than their drug-abusing circle of friends. At a rehab facility, support groups are there to give guidance and care for others who are in similar situations.
  • Life skills – One of the main focuses of therapy is to replace problematic behavior with positive alternative behavior and life skills that can help a person deal with everyday stresses in a better way. Some of these include communication and anger management.
  • Individual attention – Individual therapy can aid those who are afraid to talk about trauma they may have and to delve into the negative aspects of their behavior in order to uncover the cause of their addiction.
  • Professional diagnosis – In some addiction cases, there is more than just an addiction present. Mental illness and addiction are commonly found together; this is known as a dual diagnosis. Oftentimes, in a dual diagnosis case, the mental disorder is causing the individual to seek drugs to alleviate their symptoms.
  • Relapse prevention – Up to 60 percent of recovering addicts will revert to drug use if they do not follow relapse prevention techniques such as finding support groups, going to meetings and recognizing the pattern of relapse.
