One of the most heartbreaking things to deal with is when a family member you love and care deeply about has a Xanax addiction. Generally speaking, potentially addicted people are better able to more easily achieve recovery if their substance use problem is identified and treated early on. Early stage treatment of this disorder is more likely to be less dramatic, disruptive and intense, and likely will cause less anxiety for the individual and for family members.
Family members while they want to help members with a Xanax addiction often find themselves feeling overwhelmed and helpless and some even give up. You can help your family member beat their addiction but it is important to continue to show love and support for your loved one. Xanax addicts who have no support system are twice as likely to continue their abuse as in their mind they have nothing to live for. Always encourage them to get help and be patient with him/her. Consider doing an intervention with a certified interventionist and getting them enrolled in a Xanax treatment program like The Beachcomber.
