Xanax 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.
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.
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.
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:
