Dana Point Xanax Rehab Program Serving All of Southern California
As the most commonly prescribed psychiatric medication in the U.S., Xanax is prescribed to millions of patients every year. This drug is a benzodiazepine, a category of drugs intended to treat anxiety and panic attacks. Ironically, anxiety can worsen by taking “benzos” like Xanax, unless they are used exactly as prescribed and only on a short-term basis. Even then, it’s possible to become physically and psychologically addicted. Users often start to take more medication than prescribed in order to achieve the same relief, but many up their dosage simply to get the same pleasurable high they used to enjoy.
Our goal at Dana Point Rehab Campus is to help you understand the reality of your addiction and how to confront it head-on. You won’t be alone during this process, either. Our addiction specialists will help you detox and start your recovery journey using our evidence-based addiction treatment techniques to set you on the right path. Each person is treated as a unique individual, and their treatment is catered to their specific needs.
Am I Addicted to Xanax?
If you find that all you can think about is getting your next batch of pills, you may be addicted to Xanax. Symptoms of withdrawal spur the desire to seek more Xanax, even going to the lengths of “doctor shopping” to get more of the drug. However, many physicians are reluctant to prescribe Xanax to a new patient, meaning the burgeoning addict must get their next fix from another source. Anyone who continues to abuse Xanax even though it causes difficulties such as relationship troubles, and a failure to follow through with school or work obligations, is likely addicted.
Warning signs of Xanax addiction include:
- Withdrawal symptoms, including dizziness, tremors, and nausea
- Loss of interest in formerly pleasurable activities
- Taking Xanax even if you don’t feel anxious
- Secretiveness about Xanax use
- Fatigue, dozing off, or passing out
- Mood swings and irritability
