Xanax (generic name alprazolam) is a legal drug that is commonly prescribed by physicians for the treatment of panic and anxiety disorders. Although it’s medically beneficial, it also carries a high risk of addiction if misused.
Recognizing Xanax Addiction
Xanax is a benzodiazepine, which is a central nervous system depressant. The drug has short- and long-term effects on users, including:
- Mood swings
- Increase in risky behavior
- Decrease in inhibition
- Blurred Vision
Get the Treatment You Deserve
Xanax is one of the most commonly abused prescription drugs, and users often combine it with other substances, such as alcohol or heroin, which increases the risk of an overdose. Because of this risk, it’s imperative that if you or someone you know is struggling with Xanax addiction, you start your treatment at a detox center immediately. If you try to stop using Xanax without professional guidance, you may experience extreme withdrawal symptoms, so a reputable detox center is a smart first step. Then, you can move on to an intensive outpatient therapy program or extended care rehab program, like the ones that we host.
