How to Treat Xanax Addiction
Before reading any further, we invite you to take a deep breath, and try to show some compassion toward yourself. You’re not a bad person. You were likely prescribed Xanax in the first place because you’re suffering with an anxiety or panic disorder; when you weren’t able to escape those anxious feelings, you used more and more — until you got to the point where you need a Xanax rehab.
There’s nothing wrong with you. You’re just looking for ways to alleviate your anxiety. With a quality Xanax addiction program, you’ll be able to learn a myriad of self-regulation skills to manage your triggers and get back to a balanced state of health. These include:
Xanax Treatment & Detox FAQs
What Is Xanax Detox, and Why Do I Need it?
When your body becomes accustomed to a large amount of a substance over a long period of time, there can be dangerous withdrawal symptoms if you simply stop taking it. This is true for the group of medications called benzodiazepines, which includes Xanax.
With Xanax (also known as Alprazolam), you can experience delirium and seizures from abruptly stopping your usage.
How Long Does Xanax Detox Last?
A person’s detox from Xanax is always a unique experience, dependent on many factors:
- How much Xanax were they taking?
- How long have they been taking Xanax?
- Are they taking a long-acting benzodiazepine? Or short-acting?
- Are they struggling with any other substance use disorders?
- Are they taking another prescription drug?
- How is their overall health?
Since a person’s Xanax detox can fall within a wide range, it’s important to work with a rehab center that is experienced in helping people detox from benzodiazepine.
What Happens During Xanax Detox?
When you’re at a quality treatment center, you’ll be assessed prior to admission to make sure your detox is handled in the safest way. The medical team will then create a personalized protocol for your medically-supervised detox.
While you’re in the rehab program, the medical team will be there to provide comfort and reassurance for you. You’ll never feel like you’re alone while going through your detox — you have a top-notch team behind you that has your back. Simply knowing this provides a peace of mind that is invaluable.
What Happens After Xanax Detox?
Now your healing journey can begin in earnest! Once your body is back on track with its health, you’ll likely feel more energized and alert. If you’ve been taking dietary supplements and eating nutritious food for the past several days, your body will likely start feeling much better than it has in a long time too.
When you feel better, it’s easier to truly see the importance of living a sober lifestyle. Your new, healthier physical state will help motivate you even more to dive into your group and individual therapy sessions to heal the underlying mental and emotional causes of your addiction.
Inpatient Versus Outpatient Facilities
Some people think they can kick their Xanax addiction by simply going to an outpatient clinic a few times a week. Unfortunately, this approach doesn’t work for most.
Why? Because your addiction is driven by a deep-seeded issue that you have yet to heal. Identifying and working through this issue takes a great deal of time and energy. While you’re in this process, you’re in a very vulnerable state; it’s important that you’re surrounded by professionals who can help you move in a healthy direction, rather than revert back into shame.
While outpatient treatment programs can be incredibly helpful for transitioning back to everyday life, they are not a replacement for residential, inpatient treatment.
Avive la Vie's Xanax Treatment Program
We consistently find that previous stresses, life traumas and the beliefs associated with them are what often leads someone to abuse Xanax. Our powerful Core Belief Restructuring methodology helps our clients find the unaddressed emotional and psychological conditions that led to abusing this medication.
Our dynamically integrated program is the most effective treatment available to change self-destructive beliefs and patterns. We’re not here to bully, shame, manipulate or merely attempt to manage addictive behaviors. Rather than a confusing maze of treatments and modalities, we guide our clients on a holistic and cohesive path to recovery, focused on eliminating the actual causes of your addiction.
Course of Treatment
If you formed an addiction to Xanax, there’s a deeper issue going on that you haven’t been able to resolve on your own. Most of the time, we aren’t even aware of what these issues are.
It’s important to find a program that will utilize every possible tool to help you become aware of the root causes of your addiction, as well as treat any co-occuring mental health issues you’re struggling with, like PTSD, anxiety, panic attacks, and depression.
The main way to help resolve these issues is through a combination of different therapeutic methods. There are benefits to individual therapy — where you get fully focused attention — as well as group therapy — where you can learn you’re not alone in your struggles.
The kind of therapy you take part in is often overlooked. Most programs use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for most of their therapy sessions. While this is a great foundation, it’s often helpful to go beyond this and use a more experiential type of therapy.
Experiential Engagement Therapy, for example, makes you an active participant in your therapy. Rather than simply talking, you’re trying out tools you can use when you become triggered or anxious. By actually experiencing and trying these coping mechanisms, you’re building the ability to have a different response in real-life situations.
The Avive la Vie Shameless Approach
In our non 12-step program, we clearly see that using labels is counterproductive to recovery. Labels often produce shame, which can lead to relapse. We do not identify you as an outcast, a diagnosis or a disease. Those designations do not serve you nor reflect the deeper truth about you. We know that you are not broken, but rather temporarily off-balance. The problem is not who or what you are, but is within the unaddressed core stresses that have led you to seek relief in Xanax.
While in our care, you are respected and treated as a valuable, whole human being. We help you find your way back to balance. We believe in you.
Our innovative drug treatment program gives you a clear road map to end your Xanax addiction. We recognize your uniqueness and design a customized program around your specific needs. Our team of professionals work together to create the most effective treatment plan and makes ongoing adjustments to accelerate your recovery and create a relapse prevention protocol.
With our one-on-one, in-depth, personalized therapy sessions, you will gain the life skills to overcome addiction.
The Importance of a Holistic Perspective
At a program with a holistic perspective, your practitioners know that it is essential to provide a balanced treatment program that addresses mind, body and spirit.
A holistic approach to recovery utilizes very specific nutritional supplements and healthy, nutrient-packed meals that will replenish the vitamins and minerals necessary to rebuild your body systems, strengthen immunity and return you to an optimum state of health.
A weekly schedule of mindfulness therapy, body/mind integration and balancing, acupuncture, massage therapy, meditation and yoga further helps eliminate residual substance abuse toxins from your body tissues.
Participants report that they experience great relief from physical and psychological pain. They become relaxed, sleep better, notice improved memory, as well as an increasing sense of presence, self-awareness and self control.
Enhanced mental clarity then supports the process of learning the skills of recovery. Old cravings fall away and in their place the person develops a vigorous attitude for engaging with life.
Overcoming Xanax Addiction is Possible
Our program gets beneath the layers of unconscious strategies that drive destructive behaviors. Our team of professionals has many years of dedicated experience in helping others overcome addiction, and also has the authenticity and integrity to apply the skills they teach to their own lives.
We understand drug abuse and the many complicated issues that arise from combinations of these. Sedatives and stimulants are often used in conjunction with each other, and therefore both must be addressed in order to achieve full recovery and return to health.
We combine a comprehensive detoxification program with the most advanced therapy offered today in a private, serene setting. Our tranquil accommodations offer seclusion and security in a relaxed environment. The fresh, cool breezes lift your spirit and support gentle healing.
