Treatment for Xanax (Alprazolam) Abuse and Addiction?
At the Alternative to Meds Center, we specialize in safe medication withdrawals, and also provide testing and therapies to relieve symptoms for which prescription drugs may have been prescribed in the first place.
The FDA recommends that for day to day stress or tension, such as workplace stress, or family discord, etc., that benzodiazepines should not routinely be prescribed in these cases. (2)
However, it is known that benzodiazepines are prescribed more commonly than almost any other medication in the US. It is also known that symptoms such as anxiety could have environmental causes and are documented as being related to poor diet, sleep deprivation, and certain chemical pollutants that we are commonly exposed to. These are factors that can create a host of symptoms including anxiety, tiredness, weakness, depression, and other unwanted feelings that drugs may only mask temporarily.
A particularly popular aspect of the Alternative to Meds program is investigative lab testing to detect accumulated toxins and facilitate their removal from the body. It is true that some symptoms like anxiety and insomnia could be related to neurotoxicity, especially troublesome in our industrialized world. Pollutants, including pesticides, food additives, and heavy metals, do have the capacity to damage and interfere with normal healthy hormones, reproductive systems, neurochemistry, and innumerable parts of the complex body. Clearing these is a positive step toward natural mental health improvements and long term success.
Safe tapering is another specialty that can help those who have found limited or no success in drug-based treatments and who wish to discontinue them.
