Identify the Xanax Withdrawal Symptoms & How to Treat Xanax Addictions
Xanax is one of the most commonly abused of prescription drugs, and the number of addicts is growing. This is partly due to the increasing availability of the drug, though the extreme symptoms of Xanax withdrawal certainly play a role as well. Ocean Hills Recovery has an experienced and caring staff ready to deploy a number of methods in managing Xanax withdrawal, and the Xanax addiction treatment program is one of the best in the country.
What are the Symptoms of Xanax Withdrawal?
Besides a long list of withdrawal symptoms common to many anxiety-reducing medications, including fatigue, insomnia, suicidal ideation, joint pain and itchy skin, Xanax withdrawal may include severe panic attacks and depression lasting up to a year. Ocean Hills Recovery specializes in Xanax withdrawal treatment by using a comprehensive methodology utilizing drug replacement, behavioral modification, 12-step and psychosocial theory. Combining these proven techniques with good nutrition has shown more success than using any one of them alone.
Common Symptoms of Xanax Withdrawal:
- Vomiting, nausea, or diarrhea
- Rapid heartbeat
- Trouble sleeping
- Shaky hands
How is Addiction Treatment Handled?
Residential treatment at Ocean Hills Recovery follows a 30, 60 or 90-day program, which is decided upon by the patient consulting with experienced staff. Addictions are as different as the people experiencing them, and a one-size-fits-all protocol will never be as effective as a Xanax addiction treatment program designed around the patient’s needs. In the case of Xanax addiction, one of the most overlooked tools is dual diagnosis. Specialists at Ocean Hills Recovery are skilled at managing both the addiction and underlying psychiatric disorders.
Achieving sobriety is a difficult path after years, or even months, of Xanax addiction. Understanding that behavioral and social rehabilitation is just as important as ending physical dependency is a key factor in preventing future relapse. Combining psychiatry with counseling and a caring staff has shown to increase the success rate for Ocean Hills Recovery clients far beyond the national norms. The relaxing and beautiful setting in the resort town of Dana Point, California doesn’t hurt either.
