Xanax Addiction Treatment Center in South Carolina
As a prescription drug, Xanax (alprazolam) treats anxiety. The drug belongs to a class of drugs called benzodiazepines, which are some of the most widely used drugs in the world. Anxiety and stress can be relieved by benzodiazepines as the drug depresses the central nervous system. Even though CNS depressants can be very effective, they are particularly dangerous if abused. Additionally, Benzos like Xanax can cause shallow breathing and cardiovascular issues like irregular heartbeat if overused. It is likely to become physically dependent on Xanax when abusing the drug. Overdosing on Xanax or other benzodiazepines can cause respiratory failure, especially if combined with other CNS depressants, like alcohol.
BriteLife provides a full continuum of care at our South Carolina Xanax treatment center. Our detox program will safely and comfortably guide you through the detox process, while our residential and partial hospitalization programs will address behavioral change. In addition, our skilled therapists will collaborate with you to design a personalized treatment and wellness program that puts you on the path to recovery.
"Benzodiazepines are a class of psychoactive drugs that act as depressants—drugs which lower brain activity—they are prescribed to treat disorders such as anxiety, insomnia, and seizures. Xanax is the most widely prescribed benzo."
Xanax Addiction Signs
Since Xanax is prescribed by a doctor, it can make it difficult to identify abuse and addiction. Physical and behavioral signs you or a loved one has developed an addiction to Xanax include:
- Taking Xanax to handle with everyday life
- Using more Xanax than prescribed
- Obtaining the drug without a prescription
- Continuing to use the drug despite consequences
- Isolating from others
- Experiencing blackouts
- Memory problems
- Difficulty concentrating
- Slurred speech
- Cravings to use the drug
Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Symptoms
Two revealing signs of Xanax dependency include developing a tolerance and feeling severe Xanax withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking the drug, which can include:
- Heightened anxiety
- Raised heart rate and blood pressure
- Cold sweats
Xanax Detox on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
Xanax withdrawal symptoms can be dangerous and even fatal in some cases. Suddenly stopping Xanax can cause seizures, abnormal body sensations, muscle spasms, and delirium or detachment from reality. That’s why it’s important to get a safe, medically supervised detox at our Hilton Head detox and addiction treatment center. While Xanax remains the most popular drug to treat anxiety, there are many other benzodiazepine medications that have the same effect (and the same withdrawal symptoms). They include Ativan, Valium, Klonopin, and more.
BriteLife provides medical benzodiazepine detox services with round-the-clock support at our South Carolina rehab. Our medical team uses a tapering approach to gradually wean clients off Xanax. This will reduce withdrawal symptoms while keeping you safe and comfortable. After medical detox is completed, it’s important for clients to move into a residential program to begin the behavioral health process of recovery.
