- Xanax Withdrawal
Withdrawal from addictive substances like this always has consequences. Of course the type of drug, the quantity used and the duration of the addiction come into play when the drug or drugs is withheld. It is nearly always a dangerous process and our staff at The Beachcomber provide primary consideration to withdrawal and its symptoms.
Many believe that Xanax and its abuse are relatively easy to handle. One common belief: “detoxification is just a matter of aspirin and plenty of liquids.” In fact, very serious consequences can result from withdrawal. Slow physical deterioration results for prolonged drug and alcohol consumption and medical supervision of withdrawal becomes critical. Physical Xanax addiction occurs in all drug abusers over time and the fact is brought home if they attempt to simply quit “cold turkey.” The consequences vary widely but can sometimes prove fatal. Particularly when drugs are combined with alcohol dependency.
Drug withdrawal involves many factors and the type of drug is of major importance. With Xanax and other benzodiazepines severe reactions can occur when they are withheld. These tranquilizers and depressants like alcohol abuse can involve considerable physical damage. Professionally monitored detoxification is needed with all such chemical substances. Cross over usages complicate the picture when efforts are made to terminate abuse and addiction. Fatal overdoses can result!
Medically Supervised Treatment
Xanax is a prescribed tranquilizer and it depresses the nervous system much like ethyl alcohol. When attempts are made to withdraw from excessive and prolonged use Xanax, like other benzodiazepines, can present severe symptoms. Sometimes sleep patterns are disrupted by insomnia or restlessness. Rapid heartbeat can be brought on with tremors and increased feelings of anxiety.
After detoxification it is always wise to consider counseling in-patient or with a therapist. Residential programs such as The Beachcomber have proven most effective. If you or someone you know is experiencing problems with Xanax, suspect addiction and contact the Beachcomber in Delray Beach, Florida today for help.
