Am I Addicted to Xanax

Xanax Addiction and Treatment

Chapters Capistrano, a premier rehabilitation facility for Xanax drug addiction recovery, develops a highly personalized treatment program for each client. Xanax dependence affects every addict differently and therefore a specialized approach is required to guarantee an addict will regain a life free from drug dependency.


General Information

A benzodiazepine and a psychoactive drug, Xanax has the effect of sedation and hypnosis, and also a muscle relaxant. Commonly, Xanax is prescribed to treat anxiety and insomnia, in addition to easing withdrawal symptoms from other recreational drugs. Supervised by a doctor, usage can be safe and effective. However, if used unsupervised for a prolonged time, serious health risks can occur.

Efforts of Xanax Abuse

Side effects of abusing Xanax may include dizziness, impaired coordination, depression, and other health issues. As is the case with using any drug chronically, a Xanax addict will develop a tolerance and a dependency for the drug. To maintain the desired effect, consumption will typically increase. When mixed with other recreational drugs, such as alcohol, opiates, or antidepressants, adverse reactions will frequently occur, which can be fatal.

Xanax Detoxification Doesn’t Have To Be Painful

The Chapters Xanax drug rehab program team understands that the idea of going through Xanax withdrawal can create great anxiety and keep addicts out of rehabilitation. We are therefore committed to providing the safest, most traditional detoxification for our clients. Through our drug-specific detox treatment, clients are administered mild prescription medication. This medication, which will lessen the risk of seizure and withdrawal symptoms, is prescribed in tapering amounts until the body is physically stabilized.

Xanax addiction presents many unique challenges. Chapters Capistrano will help you navigate those road blocks and regain a life free of drug dependency! Call our 24-hour helpline at 949-371-4198 today!
