a worried woman talks about issues in a xanax addiction treatment programSince Xanax is a prescription medication, it is a common misconception among the 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 become addicted to it without even realizing it. The chances of the development of addiction are increased a great deal when the drug is abused. A rehabilitation center can be immensely helpful to enable a patient to make a speedy recovery. At Addiction Rehab Centers, every patient is given individual attention. An assessment is made depending upon the condition of the patient, and a substance abuse treatment plan is provided accordingly.

Treatment Options for Xanax Addiction

If you are noticing symptoms of a benzo addiction in a loved one, it may be time to discuss inpatient treatment. Inpatient treatment is the most intensive type of treatment. The patient is made to live in a specially designed facility during the treatment. The patient may have to live for varying periods of time, usually ranging between a few weeks to a few months depending upon the condition and recovery rate of the patient. Xanax addiction treatment is not as painful a process as the treatment of other heavy drugs, so the patient doesn’t have to live in a rehab center for long. SLO Recovery Centers use advanced techniques to facilitate the process of recovery. The experts at the center monitor the condition of the patient 24/7 and provide all the treatment needed. Chances of recovery increase a great deal for patients who opt for inpatient treatment programs. These are highly recommended for patients who have been dependent on Xanax for long periods of time.

A partial hospitalization program is offered to the patients who need something more than outpatient treatment. It is highly recommended for patients experiencing severe mental health issues. A team of doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, social workers, pharmacists, and psychologists takes care of the patient at Addiction Rehab Centers during the process.

Outpatient treatment offers the same facilities, excluding the living in part. The patient is allowed to live at home, performing his everyday tasks, while getting treated at the same time. It is a suitable program for patients who cannot afford to quit their job or education and move into a rehab center. Also, it costs less. Most Xanax addicts can be treated by outpatient treatment. However, those with poor mental health may need inpatient treatment. The patient is also required to visit the rehab center from time to time, depending upon his condition. Having a supportive family in the background speeds up the recovery process and increases success rates.

Use of Behavioral Therapies

A number of therapies are employed during the process of drug rehabilitation. Drug abuse ends up ruining the whole life of the addict. He loses his friends, career, job, and even family. Drug rehabilitation is a process that involves preparing the patient for a new life. The goal is to cure the addict of the addiction and prepare him to start his life all over again. It is only possible if therapies are used. From start to end, therapies play a crucial role. Some commonly offered therapies offered at Addiction Rehab Centers include:

  • Individual therapy: It is a one on one treatment approach that involves the patient and his therapist. The counselor discusses every aspect of addiction, including what led him to it and his triggers. The patient is then treated to remove the root cause of the addiction. Also, it is made sure that the patient knows his triggers and avoids them successfully.
  • Group therapy: Group therapy involves a number of patients. Talking to each other about their coping mechanisms can help the patients learn a lot. Group therapy also helps the patients stay determined and focused on their recovery.
  • Spouse/family therapy: Spouse or family therapy involves the patient and his family/spouse. It can help to facilitate the process of communication between the addict and his family. The family can understand the condition of the patient in a better way.

Use of Medications

Several medications are used through the process to make the treatment less painful. Most of the time, a less addictive and less potent benzodiazepine is used to ease withdrawal symptoms. Diazepam can be prescribed to treat severe symptoms like seizures. It acts as a substitute for Xanax through the process.

Klonopin can also help to reduce withdrawal symptoms. However, while taking these medications, medical supervision is necessary since these drugs are addictive themselves.

Treatment of Co-occurring Conditions

Co-occurring conditions are referred to a situation where an underlying psychological disorder is present along with drug addiction. Since most addicts start taking Xanax to treat anxiety or panic disorder, the presence of a psychological condition is inevitable. Even though the addiction can be treated, the mental disorder persists and does not go away without proper treatment. Recognizing and treating such issues is given due importance at Addiction Rehab Centers. The treatment of addiction is not possible unless these conditions are treated as well. There are great chances of relapsing if such disorders are left unattended.

Relapse Prevention

The chances of relapse never truly go away, even after a complete treatment. A major portion of recovered addicts ends up relapsing. The chances are increased even further when a proper treatment program is not availed. It is important to know relapse prevention techniques to avoid temptation successfully. Some things to consider:

  • Know your triggers: Certain triggers lead a patient towards drug abuse. Knowing these triggers can help the patient to avoid or resist them. Stress is the major trigger for most patients. Certain methods can reduce stress, such as exercise, yoga, acupuncture, massage, etc.
  • Keep healthy company: Keeping healthy company is important to maintain a life of sobriety. The circle of addicts should be abandoned as soon as possible. Having friends who abuse drugs can be the biggest reason for relapse.
  • Have a support system: Having supportive family and friends can be immensely helpful to stay sober. The patient can tell his triggers to his friends and family, and they can help him avoid them. Also, being held accountable can be a factor for the patient to keep his hands off drugs.
  • Adopt a healthy lifestyle: eating healthy, doing regular exercise and yoga, and staying positive can help the patient stay drug-free for the rest of his life.
