Future Now Xanax Detox Program
Xanax is a drug that belongs to the benzodiazepine class of drugs. It is typically prescribed by doctors for the treatment of anxiety and panic disorders. When used as directed, this medication can be a benefit to patients. When overused, used for prolonged periods of time, or abused in some way, this drug can cause addiction. Future Now offers a Xanax detox program for those that have found themselves dependent on this type of drug.
Xanax is a central nervous system depressant and works by enhancing the brain’s tranquilizing neurotransmitter, GABA. This slows down the brain’s activity and helps calm the patient. When overused, however, Xanax can cause severe sedation, confusion, slurred speech, and lack of coordination. Xanax is an addictive drug, meaning the user can quickly become dependent on it and require larger quantities to experience the same effects.
Individuals addicted to Xanax will exhibit many of the same symptoms as with any other type of drug addiction. These individuals will begin to isolate themselves from family and friends, will miss work and neglect other commitments, and will experience increased health problems. Many will struggle with financial problems and trouble with the law, as the drug addiction begins to take over their life and impact their judgment. Many individuals will start using other drugs and alcohol to supplement their Xanax addiction.
How to Detox from Xanax
The first step to recovering from a Xanax addiction is to find out how to detox from Xanax safely. This class of drugs can cause serious withdrawal symptoms when stopped suddenly, and quitting “cold turkey” is never advised with drugs like Xanax. Xanax withdrawal can lead to stroke, heart attack, seizure, severe anxiety, and hallucinations. Benzo detox, much like alcohol detox, can be life threatening, and should only be attempted under the watchful care of trained medical staff.
Future Now’s Xanax detox program keeps patients safe and comfortable. Our experienced medical staff is involved throughout the detox process and can offer medical assistance when necessary. We believe in complete abstinence after recovery, and help individuals wean off of all medications as soon as possible. To ease the uncomfortable symptoms of detox, we incorporate natural remedies into our Xanax detox program, including yoga, nutrition, acupuncture, and a living labyrinth for mindfulness.
