Xanax Addiction Treatment
Taking Xanax can be helpful to treat panic disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety disorders when medically supervised. Doctors may also prescribe Xanax for sleep disorders or one-time uses. An example is a patient that suffers anxiety and panic when flying. However, the prescription drug has a high potential for abuse.
Xanax addiction can set in faster than many people realize. Promises Treatment Centers offers Xanax addiction treatment and rehab that’s evidence-based and compassionate. In inpatient addiction treatment, you’ll address underlying issues like trauma and mental health disorders. We’ll teach you healthy coping skills so you can thrive in recovery.
Xanax Addiction Diagnosis
When you seek help at Promises, we’ll begin with a physical and psychiatric evaluation to check for any underlying mental illness. One key to helping you heal is making an accurate diagnosis of all the issues you are facing.
Under the guidelines established by the American Psychiatric Association, doctors in the U.S. diagnose Xanax addiction as a sedative, hypnotic or anxiolytic use disorder. This encompasses Xanax abuse and addiction. Substance abusers must exhibit at least two or three symptoms to indicate serious problems with Xanax use. Severely affected users may experience as many as 11 different symptoms of problematic use. Doctors note the severity of each individual’s condition when making their diagnosis and creating a treatment plan.
Medical Detox for Xanax Addiction
There are many risks of Xanax abuse. Medical detox and behavioral therapy are often needed to quit using Xanax.
Xanax addiction treatment in our rehabilitation centers may start with medical detox, especially if you’ve been abusing alcohol or other drugs. We make sure Xanax detox is safe and as comfortable as possible. In medical detox, we gradually wean you off Xanax. We may treat you with other medications that ease Xanax withdrawal symptoms. Our 24/7 medical staff monitors you around the clock and attends to uncomfortable symptoms.
Xanax and Co-Occurring Substance Use
Many people who abuse Xanax or other benzodiazepines also abuse alcohol or another drug. Substance abusers most commonly take Xanax with other benzodiazepines, marijuana and opioid painkillers. Some people need alcohol detox and alcohol rehab as well as Xanax treatment. If you have a co-occurring substance use disorder, we will treat all drug problems at the same time.
Inpatient Drug Rehab Therapies
You’ll work with Promises’ therapists to get to the root of the problems that led to your Xanax addiction. For example, we’ll help you identify any trauma that is fueling your drug abuse. Along the way you will learn how to address triggers and gain new coping skills. We will approach emotional healing from many angles to help you find your balance again.
At Promises, we tailor treatment plans to your needs. Following medical detox, Xanax addiction treatment may include:
- Individual behavioral therapy
- Group therapy
- Alternative therapies
Individual therapy helps you address the reasons you abuse drugs and change your behaviors. You’ll learn healthy skills to cope with difficult feelings. Our staff attends to co-occurring mental health disorders as well. For instance, you may also be struggling with an anxiety disorder or depression. Drug rehab treats both your physical health and mental health.
One therapeutic approach that we draw on in Xanax addiction treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This is a type of behavioral therapy used to treat substance abuse. It has been widely studied and proven effective. We use cognitive behavioral therapy in drug rehab to help you identify destructive thoughts and behaviors. You’ll practice replacing them with healthy ones. Cognitive behavioral therapy can be especially useful in treating depression, an anxiety disorder or underlying trauma. We may also use other therapies such as motivational interviewing or trauma therapies.
Group therapy is important during Xanax addiction recovery. You will meet in small groups with people facing similar issues. Small groups of peers have been found to be helpful when you are facing Xanax addition. They help you learn to share openly and develop trust. They also teach you new ways to communicate and share feelings. Having a sober group to connect with helps you build a sober community when you leave residential treatment. This helps greatly with relapse prevention.
Many difficulties arise with loved ones when you are dealing with Xanax addiction. Family therapy and Promises family programs allow you to start repairing family dynamics. This gives you a safe space to begin to make amends with loved ones and support one another.
Alternative and Experiential Approaches
Xanax addition treatment is tailored to each client’s needs. At Promises Treatment Centers, we use a variety of traditional and alternative therapies. Treatment options may include:
- Equine therapy
- Art therapy
We create a treatment environment that feels like home so you can focus on healing. We blend natural settings with well-balanced meals and warm décor.
Aftercare is essential to staying sober after leaving Xanax rehab. Our treatment center provides continuing care plans. We’ll help you plan for life after residential treatment. Our treatment team will connect you with recovery resources in your area. These may include:
- 12-step support groups or 12-step alternatives
- Sober-living residences
- Promises alumni network
