Since Xanax is a prescription medication, it is a common misconception among general public that its use is not associated with any significant side effects. This is not true at all. In fact, prescription medications make a significant part of all types of substances people are addicted to. Most Xanax addicts start taking it as a part of their treatment and end up becoming addicted to it without even realizing it. The chances of development of addiction are increased a great deal when the drug is abused. A rehabilitation center can be immensely helpful to enable a patient make a speedy recovery. At SLO Recovery Centers, every patient is given individual attention. An assessment is made depending upon the condition of the patient and a treatment is provided accordingly.
