Since 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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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:
