Chapters Addiction and Treatment

Chapters Capistrano, a top-rated rehab facility for alcohol and drug addiction recovery, understands every person experiences addiction and recovery differently. Therefore, we develop highly personalized treatment programs for our clients so you can successfully regain a life free from drug dependency!

General Information

Effects of Xanax include sedation, hypnosis, and muscle relaxant. The benzodiazepine and psychoactive drug, Xanax can be prescribed by a doctor to treat anxiety and insomnia. Also, the drug is known to reduce withdrawal symptoms when an addict is detoxing from other recreational drugs. When under doctor supervision, taking this drug in the prescribed dose for its intended use can be effective and safe. However, if abused, serious health risks can result.

Effects of Abuse

Dizziness, impaired coordination, depression, and other health issues are possible side effects of Xanax abuse. If used chronically, addicts will build a tolerance and a dependency. In order to attain the desired effect, abusers will commonly increase dosage. When mixed with alcohol, opiates, or antidepressants, serious implications may occur, which may even turn deadly.

Drug Detoxification Doesn’t Have To Be Painful if Done Properly

The idea of withdrawing from Xanax can cause anxiety and influence many addicts to avoid necessary treatment. The Chapters drug rehab program team therefore provide the safest, most traditional detoxification program for our clients, a drug-specific detox. Under a doctor’s care, clients take mild prescription medication in tapering amounts, which decreases the risk of seizure and withdrawal symptoms. Clients continue the medication until the body is stabilized.

Chapters Capistrano’s drug and alcohol rehab center is dedicated to helping our clients successfully tackle challenges presented by addiction in order to regain a life free of drugs. For more information about our personalized programs, contact our 24-hour helpline at 949-371-4198 today!
