Treatment for Xanax Addiction
Like other drugs, Xanax creates a physical addiction within the body, where the physiological systems develop a very real dependency on the presence of the drug. It has now become an “appetite” for the body, similar to how the body knows it needs food and water in order to survive. This means addicts should detox from Xanax first before moving on to any Xanax rehab programs.
By going to professional Xanax rehabilitation centers like Beachway Therapy, addicts can undergo a carefully monitored detoxification to help them overcome the physical withdrawal symptoms from Xanax, which can range from nausea and vomiting to a dramatic spike in the anxiety the Xanax held off, such as suicidal thoughts, depression and impaired thinking.
Get Treated for Xanax Addiction
Once the detox period has been safely completed, Xanax addiction treatment can begin in earnest. The most important phase in this step is intensive, personal therapy for the addict. The cause of anxiety and panic attacks are what led to a Xanax dependency in the first place.
Now is the time to develop the tools and coping strategies to allow people in recovery to take these challenges head on, and take control of their lives, rather than relinquishing that control to hide from life’s stresses in substances like Xanax again.
