Xanax is the most commonly used sedative drug in United States. With the continued use, tolerance is developed that leads the patient towards the usage of more and more drug to produce desired effects. This situation finally results into development of dependence. Once the dependence has been developed, quitting drug results into the appearance of a number of withdrawal symptoms that can be highly uncomfortable. In case of prolonged abuse, a proper treatment program is needed for a successful recovery. The process starts as soon as the drug is quit. Detoxification is the first step of recovery, followed by proper treatment in an inpatient or outpatient treatment center.
