Xanax Addiction Treatment

Benzodiazepines

sprout_fl_xanaxXanax is one of the prescription drugs classified as a benzodiazepine. Benzodiazepines act as a relaxor of the body and mind and can effectively relieve anxiety and pain. The tranquilizing capabilities become addictive when the body starts experiencing withdrawal symptoms from the drug. Withdrawal from the prescription can heighten the original anxiety or pain that it was meant to treat. Taking more Xanax temporarily relieves the symptoms of withdrawal, which only encourages the addiction.

Benzodiazepines on their own don’t inevitably lead to addiction, but adding alcohol, narcotics, or other prescription drugs to the mix results in a much higher chance of dependency, adverse side effects, and complications. The effects of a Xanax addiction are physical and mental and can make someone feel as if there is no way out.

The Signs

The effects of Xanax are dangerous but can be detected when paid close attention to. If you notice any of the following unusual symptoms, there may be a problem. Don’t hesitate to seek immediate help.

  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Slow breathing
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Increased anxiety
  • Loss of interest

Treatment

Overdose and withdrawal can be fatal. An individual struggle with an addiction to Xanax or other benzodiazepines needs to seek professional help to overcome this addiction safely. Healthcare professionals oversee a slow and carefully-monitored detox.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy must be used to treat anxiety and other mental health problems when benzodiazepines have become problematic. This type of therapy trains patients to replace negative thoughts, actions, and behaviors with positive ones, without the use of drugs. It takes time before the withdrawal effects of the drug fade and until then depression will linger.

At Sprout Health Florida we understand the complications and dangers of Xanax as well as other benzodiazepines. We also know how to treat and combat a Xanax addiction with the appropriate detox process, therapy, education, and support. If you suffer from Xanax abuse or addiction or know someone who does, call Sprout Health Florida for help. Xanax addiction is very dangerous, and treatment must be received to avoid overdose.
