Signs of Xanax Addiction
Xanax addiction is similar to other drug addictions and alcohol abuse. As mentioned above, even a person that is taking their prescription as directed can become dependent on the drug. This is because people using the drug at any level, build a tolerance, and need more and more for it even to work as recommended.
Also, people that become addicted to Xanax will experience physical Xanax withdrawal symptoms when there are low levels to none of the prescription medication and their body. They will also experience cravings and a burning desire to obtain more of the drug.
What Does Xanax Addiction Look Like?
Here are some of the physical and psychological symptoms of Xanax addiction:
- Sleepiness and Light-Headed
- Long Periods of Sleeping
- Memory Loss
- Felling Elated
- Nausea and Headache
- Inability to Concentrate
A person that has Xanax addiction will likely have the following symptoms chronically:
- Slurred Speech
Chronic use of Xanax can cause temporary damage to the CNS (central nervous system). This medication will slow down your nervous system as it is repeatedly exposed to it. Mixing alcohol and Xanax is even more dangerous. Both are CNS depressants, and mixing them can lead to coma or death.
Likewise, mixing alcohol and Xanax or large doses of Xanax alone can lead to people being in heavily sedated states for days. This can be dangerous because people will do things they do not realize they are doing while in this state, similar to sleepwalking, eating, or driving.
If you or a loved one have become addicted to Xanax or are misusing Xanax, look for a Xanax medical detox program in Florida as soon as possible. Xanax, especially, mixed with other substances can be very dangerous. Thankfully, our drug detox specialists are here to help.
What to Expect From Xanax Detox in Boynton Beach, Florida
Getting help for your Xanax detoxification is one of the best things that you can do for yourself. Looking to detox in a facility may be the safest choice you could make to start as medical professionals will monitor you 24.7 and be there with you throughout the detox process. Xanax is physically and mentally addictive. When you are coming off of the medication, you will have the following Xanax withdrawal symptoms:
- Headache and Nausea
- Aches and Pains
- Inability to Concentrate
- Panic Disorders
- Strong Cravings
Getting through the early stages in a facility where you won’t have access to the drug and cared for through dangerous and life-threatening withdrawal symptoms like seizures is the safe way to detox from Xanax. After the detox stage, you will enter a Xanax addiction treatment program. This Xanax addiction treatment stage typically occurs in a residential rehab or outpatient treatment programs, full-day, partial, day, or weekly setting depending on the level of care you decide that you need.
During the rehabilitation stage, you will be taking a look at underlying mental health problems with a substance abuse counselor or therapist. You will also attend peer support groups, new coping mechanisms for your anxiety or panic disorder, and you will be creating an actionable plan for your discharge from the Xanax addiction treatment center. You can have your brain and body back; all it takes is reaching out for help to start your recovery journey.
