Beach House Center for Recovery provides medically supervised and individualized Xanax rehab in Florida. We proudly offer a compassionate, safe, and nurturing environment for a diverse population of patients at our state-of-the-art addiction treatment campus.

What Is Xanax?

Xanax is a benzodiazepine (benzo) commonly used to alleviate symptoms of anxiety.

Although Xanax, the brand name for alprazolam, is widely prescribed as a short-term treatment for severe anxiety, it has high addiction potential. Approximately 44% of users develop an addiction.

What Makes Xanax Addictive?

Xanax depresses the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). It facilitates the release of a neurotransmitter called gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain. This neurotransmitter reduces nerve cell activity, promoting feelings of calm.

This sedative effect can be very appealing for individuals struggling with chronic anxiety disorders, leading to misuse and addiction.

Xanax rehab can help individuals overcome their addiction with safe, effective detox and personalized treatment. Our addiction care specialists are ready to help address the physical and psychological aspects of addiction—so you can begin your path to long-lasting recovery.

What Is Xanax Addiction?

Xanax is an exceptionally addictive prescription medication for several reasons

  • It alleviates negative symptoms of severe anxiety
  • It initiates the release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that causes euphoria
  • It quickly alters the brain’s structure, leading to tolerance after a few uses

Xanax has meaningful clinical uses and can be used successfully under proper medical support. Unfortunately, when it is over-used, administered inappropriately, or used in combination with other substances, it can lead to addiction and deadly outcomes.

A person’s likelihood of Xanax addiction depends on several factors. Individuals with a family history of addiction are often more likely to develop substance use disorders, and some are more vulnerable to substance use disorders because of enhanced neurological responses to stimulants or depressants. Here are some critical aspects of Xanax addiction

  • Physical dependence
  • Psychological dependence
  • Increased tolerance
  • Compulsive drug seeking and use
  • Interference with daily live

Signs and Symptoms of Xanax Addiction

When taken in medically appropriate doses, Xanax is an effective treatment for anxiety with minimal side effects. However, you can become addicted even if you have a prescription.

Xanax is commonly misused in the following ways

  • Taking doses over the prescribed amount
  • Using increasing amounts to feel the desired outcomes 
  • Needing to use the drug to prevent withdrawal symptoms
  • Combining it with alcohol or other substances
  • Injecting or snorting the medication
  • Taking the drug for recreational purposes, with or without a prescription

Over time, continual use of Xanax can lead to dependency as the body adapts to the drug. Increased dosages are eventually needed to achieve the intended effect, significantly raising the chance of accidental overdose and drug-induced toxicity.

One of the most significant indications of Xanax addiction is the inability to cease drug use due to fear of experiencing physical withdrawal symptoms. Outside a medically supervised Xanax rehab environment, withdrawal can be very dangerous—even life-threatening.

Severe withdrawal symptoms can lead to heart attack and respiratory failure, which can be fatal.

Because of the potentially dangerous effects of Xanax withdrawal, seeking help at an accredited medical detox center in Florida is critical to assuring your safety and comfort.

Some common behavioral indications of Xanax addiction include the following

  • Disinterest in fulfilling personal, professional, or family responsibilities
  • Trying and failing to stop taking the drug
  • Increased risk-taking behaviors.
  • Becoming less able to perform work, school, or personal duties
  • Preoccupation with finding and taking Xanax
  • Taking higher and higher doses
  • Losing interest in activities and events that were once pleasurable or important
  • Continuing to take the drug regardless of the physical and psychological damage
  • Experiencing withdrawal symptoms when use stops.
  • Devoting excessive time to taking, recovering from, or sourcing more Xanax
  • Having significant legal or financial problems

If you or a loved one is struggling with drug misuse or addiction, Beach House can provide personalized treatment modalities at our Xanax addiction treatment center in Florida.

What to Expect from a Xanax Treatment Program

We are an inpatient treatment center offering medically supervised Xanax detox and safe, effective, and highly personalized rehab for Xanax.

While everyone’s journey toward recovery is different, here is a general guideline of what you can expect

  • Medically supervised detox
    Our specialized addiction care specialists evaluate and assess the medical, physical, and psychological needs of each individual to create a personalized Xanax detox program. It often depends on severity, use duration, and overall physical health.

    Like detox, rehab for Xanax addiction is highly personalized at Beach House. Individuals experience intensive programs designed to address the root cause of their addiction. These programs include evidence-based treatments such as behavioral therapy, individual and group therapy, skill building, transition planning, and more.

    This program enables patients to access and receive exceptional, in-depth Xanax rehab, learn foundational life skills, and find freedom from addiction while having the flexibility to return home in the evenings.
  • Mental health treatment
    Substance use disorders often co-occur with mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, or PTSD. Our clinical addiction specialists offer in-depth dual diagnosis treatment to help patients heal from addiction and mental health issues simultaneously, leading to better health outcomes.
  • Aftercare programs
    Once Xanax rehab is complete, Beach House offers a supportive aftercare program—for as long as needed—to help patients adjust to independent living.
