Xanax Treatment and Rehab

Xanax addiction is best treated in an inpatient or outpatient rehab with medically assisted detox. Ongoing counseling and support is important for long-term sobriety.

Xanax Addiction Treatment

Many inpatient rehabs offer medically assisted detox to help with the withdrawal process.

Residential inpatient programs provide important therapeutic treatments to ensure a successful recovery.

If inpatient rehab is not an option due to outside responsibilities or time restraints, a quality outpatient program may be an alternative for those with mild Xanax addictions. Finding an outpatient program with medically supervised detox will make the withdrawal process safer and more bearable. After detox, the Xanax user will attend counseling and support groups on an outpatient basis.

Aftercare for a Xanax addiction is very important because it provides the support and ongoing counseling a person early in recovery will need to help prevent relapse. Ongoing services may include group therapy, individual therapy and a 12-step program.

Treatment Centers for Xanax Addiction Treatment

It’s important to find a rehab that specializes in treatment for your addiction. For Xanax addictions especially, it’s vital to have a medical detox where doctors monitor any potential complications from withdrawal. Recovering from a Xanax addiction also means learning how to cope with anxiety and difficult situations without using the drug, which is something that can be learned through therapy and counseling. Some of the best rehabs for Xanax addiction treatment include:

Inpatient Xanax Rehab

Inpatient rehab is one of the most effective treatment options for Xanax addiction. These programs provide the highest level of care, support and structure. Many treatment centers also offer detox services, allowing patients to go through withdrawal from Xanax in a safe, medically supervised environment.

Most residential treatment programs last from 28 days to several months. The length of the program will depend on the severity of the addiction and whether there are any co-occurring mental health disorders.

Xanax withdrawal is best managed by tapering down use. This involves gradually reducing the patient’s dosage of the drug over a period of weeks. During this time, the body adapts to having less of the drug, which prevents serious withdrawal symptoms.

After detox, the psychological aspects of Xanax addiction are targeted in one-on-one therapy sessions. These sessions can help change the user’s response to certain stimuli that trigger their drug use. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is one therapy that has proven very effective at treating most behaviors of addiction.

Inpatient therapy offers many different treatment therapies and options, including:

    Ongoing Treatment and Relapse Prevention Strategies

    For mild cases of Xanax addiction, outpatient treatment programs that offer medical detox are an alternative to inpatient rehab. These programs may be a better fit for people who don’t have flexibility in their schedules or may be the sole caregiver for young children. Outpatient services may include family therapy, counseling, continuing education, relapse prevention methods and support groups.

    For a newly recovering Xanax addict, relapse prevention should be a huge part of their ongoing treatment program. Breaking old habits and solidifying new behaviors learned in therapy doesn’t happen overnight—it takes time. Knowing how to prevent relapse can help with maintaining sobriety until those newly learned behaviors become a way of life.

    Some tips for avoiding relapse include:

    • Know your triggers

      During treatment, the user will identify the specific triggers—people, places or things—that caused their Xanax use to escalate. Learning to avoid and/or manage them is extremely important when it comes to preventing relapse.

    • Reduce stress

      Stress can often be a trigger for Xanax use, so learning stress reduction and coping techniques can help a person in recovery avoid relapse. Ways to reduce stress include exercise, deep breathing and meditation.

    • Have a support system

      Twelve-step programs provide fellowship with others who are committed to long-term sobriety from Xanax addiction. Being accountable to the group or a sponsor is a powerful motivator to remain sober.

    • Avoid people who encourage drug use

      It’s important for recovering Xanax users to be surrounded by people who support and encourage their sobriety. While it’s hard to say goodbye to old friends, recovery has to become a priority—which may mean cutting loose bad influences.

    • Get healthy

      Getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet and learning how to manage stress provides a foundation for a healthier mind and body. The stronger a person feels—both mentally and physically—the less likely he or she will feel the need to turn to Xanax on bad days.

    • Keep busy

      In recovery, boredom is not your friend. Stay busy by finding a new hobby or reclaiming an old passion. Art, music, blogging, hiking and reading can all help occupy the mind and give a sense of purpose and meaning.

    “Get professional help, you can’t do it alone…Stay away from people, places and things that trigger you. Attend meetings, get a good sponsor and give it 100 percent. Don’t get over confident and be patient—it doesn’t happen overnight.”
