In the popular media, addiction is still portrayed as a moral failing and a personal choice. Addicts are people who just can’t get it together, who prioritize their addiction above and beyond all else. Nothing could be further from the truth. Addicts are good and profoundly empathetic people. That’s actually one of the reasons it’s so hard for them to get clean. Their overwhelming emotions make it difficult for them to function. And because they’re highly empathetic, they’re also highly aware of how disappointed their loved ones are in them. This can be difficult to face without drugs.
Xanax hooks addicts by making them dependent. Dependency occurs when the body changes the way it responds to Xanax. Rather than just getting anxiety relief from Xanax, addicts who have become dependent feel that they must use Xanax to feel normal. The body convinces them they must keep using to stay alive. That’s why they’re willing to take great risks and sacrifice cherished relationships to keep using.
You can become dependent on Xanax even with a valid medical prescription. It doesn’t matter if you have a medical condition Xanax treats, or if you’ve never used an illegal drug. You can still be an addict. Here are some hallmarks of Xanax dependency:
When you stop using Xanax, your body becomes convinced it is dying. Dependency convinces your body that it needs Xanax as much as it needs food or water. So the body revolts against the decision to stop using. This causes a difficult process caused detox. You’ll feel symptoms of withdrawal for a few days until Xanax is gone from your body. Once it’s gone, getting sober will be easier—but not easy.
These symptoms deter many addicts from continuing with the detox process. This is just one of the many ways addiction tricks you into continuing to use. Don’t fall for addiction’s lies. You can get through detox.
Detox can be painful, but it is not dangerous if you are otherwise healthy. Even if you’re not, medical detox can support you through the detox process, protecting you from withdrawal syndromes, dehydration, and other risks associated with detox.
Addiction is a deep disorder of the brain and body. It’s also a vicious cycle that works like this: people with an addiction usually have genetic, brain chemistry, another difference that makes them more vulnerable to addiction. That’s why addiction tends to run in families. The process of addiction intensifies these differences by altering brain chemistry and gene expression.
One chemical that helps explain this phenomenon is a coenzyme called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD). You might not think much about NAD, but it plays a key role in every cell of your body, by supporting reactions at the cellular level. Without adequate levels of NAD, your cells and your body can’t function correctly.
Addicts tend to have lower levels of NAD. The process of addiction also depletes NAD. This means that restoring NAD can restore the brain and body, making it easier to get clean and sober. Put simply, NAD puts back what was missing that may have led to your addiction. It also restores what the addiction took from you, helping you to embrace your new, healthy lifestyle.
NAD is also linked to healthier neurotransmitter levels. Neurotransmitters are brain chemicals that help send signals. They play key roles in virtually everything the brain does, and low neurotransmitter levels can cause depression, anxiety, trouble sleeping, difficulty concentrating, chronic pain, and much more. NAD supports your body to remain healthy as it navigates the difficult detox journey. It can reduce the symptoms of withdrawal, make withdrawal shorter, and even support you to remain sober without relapsing.
