Xanax Addiction

Xanax Addiction

At Alternative to Meds Center, we know that more efficient answers are available besides taking Xanax for a lifetime and developing a Xanax addiction. Addiction to Xanax is one of the most concerning prescription drug addictions. 


The brain becomes adjusted to Xanax use in ways that extremely bothersome withdrawal effects can occur when the medication is reduced or discontinued. Xanax withdrawal symptoms can be the most difficult of any medication withdrawal experience. We have created precise protocols of Xanax addiction help that vastly alleviate withdrawal symptoms and effectively tend to the underlying problems which initially led to Xanax dependence. We investigate and address the underlying causes of an addictive with scientifically proven methods. We know how to eliminate withdrawal effects and cravings to that Xanax addiction recovery can occur comfortably.

A tolerance to benzos is easily developed, and a higher Xanax dosage is quickly needed to achieve the same effects; individuals who are both prescribed and not prescribed to benzo medications have to keep increasing the amount of the drug they use. This is a vicious cycle in itself as you have to keep taking more and more than you were initially prescribed or taking to self medicate. Although it is sold on the street, most Xanax drug addictions start with a prescription from a medical doctor. In many cases, it is only prescribed for a short time to avoid Xanax abuse and dependence. However, many individuals who are addicted to this medication started with a short term prescription, but once the prescription is gone and the doctor won’t prescribe more; individuals will often seek it elsewhere. You do not have to continue to self-medicate, there are effective long-term solutions for the symptoms that led to Xanax use.

People often go to several different doctors to get prescriptions, also known as doctor shopping, get it from a friend, family member, or purchase it on the street. For many people, one short term prescription is enough to become addicted. Especially because this medication takes away anxiety and inhibitions, once a person has experienced the high from it; they often want more. People who don’t even have anxiety will lie to doctors about experiencing symptoms of anxiety just to get a benzodiazepine prescription to get high. Many people love the way that this drug makes them feel, and people who are prone to addiction are even more susceptible to developing a serious need for Xanax addiction help.

Xanax is prescribed in small amounts all of the time; for patients who are afraid to fly, patients who are afraid of the dentist, for oral surgery, for the anxiety produced by abortions and many other reasons for short term or even one time use of the drug. Physicians should be cautious and look for Xanax addiction signs as well as individuals who are more likely to be prone to addiction than others. In other cases, people are prescribed this medication for the long term, and they have no need to doctor shop or buy it on the street because they can get it every month from their primary doctor. The fact is that long term use is highly likely to lead to dependency which will require professional Xanax addiction recovery treatment. When a person has become physically dependent on Xanax or other benzos, serious withdrawal symptoms can emerge. We are medically equipped to deal with serious cases of benzodiazepine withdrawal.

Even if this medication is prescribed from a doctor, it doesn’t mean that it is okay to have an addiction. Many people are aware of their addiction or dependency to this drug, but are afraid to discontinue use because of the possibilities of uncomfortable Xanax withdrawal symptoms and a worsened state of anxiety. If you think you have a benzo addiction or dependence, the earlier you confront it, the easier it will be to overcome it. Talking to a medical professional about Xanax addiction treatment is crucial, as this addiction can cause serious problems in a person’s life. These problems include pronounced symptoms of withdrawal. To understand why withdrawal occurs and how a person may have become addicted to benzos in the first place, underlying causes of anxiety need to be looked at. Even when the drug is gone, the underlying issue is still there, so rapid Xanax addiction help usually doesn’t relieve the real problem. 

When looking for underlying causes of anxiety, we identify a collection of neurotoxins including toxic heavy metals over-stimulating the nervous system in most cases. These toxins may be removed, safely and comfortably through neurotoxin removal methods so that the person can remain drug-free without suffering continuous anxiety. This is the class of medication our addiction treatment center most frequently addresses as unsupported recovery from a benzodiazepine addiction may be virtually impossible. 

What are Xanax alternatives? Our program for this specific class of medications includes careful taper methods, detoxification of neurotoxins that have collected in the individual’s body due to the drug or from their environmental surroundings, neurochemical support with natural substances, support from peers, and the relaxing benefits of many therapies including massage therapy, sauna, meditation, and acupuncture. Each client receives personalized treatment regimens that are designed by medical professionals. Trained counselors are here now to answer questions. Please call us so you can find out what is able to be done for your loved one or you.
