Xanax is a commonly prescribed drug which is used to treat anxiety and panic disorders. Xanax is a trademark name for the chemical compound and drug alprazolam. Xanax rehab is recommended for addicts of the drug.
Xanax is classified as a depressant and tranquillizer. Users who habitually use the drug find themselves building up a tolerance and resistance to the drug. Over time users require more and more Xanax in order to function. An obsession and prioritisation of Xanax begin to take over the user’s life.
Residential rehab is the best option for Xanax addiction simply because Xanax can display a range of both physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms. It is, therefore, most appropriate and safe that patients are able to undergo medically assisted rehabilitation, this means that any hiccups in the transition due to any of these withdrawal symptoms are able to be dealt with in a caring and responsible manner. You will be in the perfect environment for your particular recovery.
Since Xanax directly interferes with the brain’s GABA hormones, when the drug is abruptly withdrawn, the brain switches over to a state of hyperactivity. This medically charged hyperactivity can lead to serious problems like cardiac arrest or even life-threatening seizures. In actuality, the United Kingdom sees up to as much as 100 deaths a year related to Xanax.
Residential rehab means that users on the start of their drug addiction recovery journey can benefit from the watchful eyes of the trained medical staff, who will help you to detox from the chemical you are addicted to in a safe and monitored way – any problems and they are right there. The staff also have facilities to make these issues less likely, as such to administer pharmaceuticals which will assist in your body’s transition as it goes through this detox process. This decreases the chance of a dangerous reaction which could put your life and health at risk.
Xanax withdrawal symptoms (when not in a medically supervised detox) includes:
- Muscle ache
- Panic attacks
- Rapid heartbeat
- Extreme depression
- Suicidal thoughts
Ahead of being admitted to the detox centre, an entire medical assessment takes place. The reason for this is that quite often Xanax addicts experience co-dependency with other drugs. This can be anything from alcohol to heroin and crack cocaine. A personalised rehab plan is therefore fully taken into consideration and planned according to the specific needs of the individual.
Following on from treatments, and after the patients are discharged from the rehab, aftercare planning is provided as part of the ongoing recovery effort. This means that you will have support following on from your treatment to ensure you stay on the path of recovery and sobriety.
