Xanax belongs to a class of drugs known as benzodiazepines. Drugs such as Valium and Ativan also fall into this category. Initially prescribed to treat anxiety and panic disorders, Xanax is a habit forming drug that you can become both physically and mentally addicted to. Taking more than what is prescribed, taking Xanax that has not been prescribed to you, or visiting multiple doctors to obtain more of the drug than what is recommended (“doctor shopping”) are all signs that you may have an addiction to Xanax. The physical, emotional, mental and spiritual consequences of abusing Xanax can be devastating. If taken in a high enough dose or mixed with alcohol, you risk overdosing and even death.
Treatment for Xanax addiction in Florida includes:
Detox is the first step in the treatment of Xanax addiction. A medically supervised detox is strongly recommended. Xanax withdrawal symptoms include: insomnia, muscle stiffness, vivid dreams, difficulty concentrating, temporary short term memory difficulties, headaches, jaw and teeth pain, “pins and needles” sensations, nausea and a pervasive sense of sadness and depression. In some cases, Xanax withdrawal can cause seizures and even death. A medical detox can greatly alleviate these symptoms and keep you as comfortable as possible.
- Inpatient Drug Rehab
Inpatient drug rehab for Xanax addiction provides the 24 hour supervision that people struggling to overcome an addiction often need. The first few weeks of recovery can be an emotional time. Residing in a highly structured, therapeutic environment with professional addictions counselors, licensed therapists and board certified psychiatrists creates a safe and comfortable atmosphere in which the healing process can begin.
- Outpatient Drug treatment
Outpatient drug treatment provides the ongoing support many men and women need as they transition from treatment back into independent living. Clinical groups and one-on-one therapy sessions help clients adjust to living a sober lifestyle.
- Sober Living
Sober living homes are structured residences that offer gender specific housing for men and women in early recovery. Residents in a transitional living residence are expected to maintain their sobriety and follow house guidelines.
