Treatment for Xanax Addiction

Treatment for Xanax Addiction at Park Royal

Xanax, the trade name for a drug called alprazolam, is an anxiolytic medication used to manage short-term symptoms of anxiety and sleep disorders. Xanax, known on the streets as “planks,” “bars,” or “zanies,” is intended for prescribed use for only three weeks, but many individuals take this medication for longer than prescribed and at higher doses than recommended. As Xanax is a highly-addictive drug that produces effects by calming the excitement in the brain and causing a sense of well-being, many individuals use this medication for nonmedical purposes. This is called prescription drug abuse.

It’s commonly thought that prescription drugs are always safe to use, as they’re prescribed by a physician and dispensed by a pharmacist. However, if not used as directed or taken without a prescription, Xanax can be deadly, especially when help from a professional Xanax addiction treatment and rehab center is not sought. Many individuals who abuse Xanax engage in a practice known as “polysubstance abuse.” Some will mix Xanax with other downers such as alcohol, opiates, heroin, or barbiturates. This mixture of downers can cause increased respiratory depression, leading to coma and death. Others choose to mix Xanax with stimulants such as cocaine and methamphetamines, a dangerous cocktail that can cause severe cardiac complications, such as stroke or heart attack. Mixing Xanax with any other drugs is a dangerous idea, but it is one that has gained much popularity over the years. In fact, physicians estimate that 80% of individuals addicted to Xanax engage in polysubstance abuse. Fortunately, Park Royal Hospital in Fort Myers, FL offers high-quality Xanax addiction treatment and rehab at our center where you can become sober and find health and wellness once more.

When the body becomes physically dependent upon Xanax, an individual will notice uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal that often lead the addict running back for more.

Types of Treatment

Types of Treatment and Rehab Used at Our Fort Myer’s Center

The inpatient treatment and rehab programs at Park Royal are primarily intended to provide stabilization services to those in crisis. However, we do provide a full spectrum of therapeutic interventions and experiential methods at our addiction treatment center to help build a foundation for the next phase of recovery. Some of the therapeutic options we offer in our inpatient program include:

Detoxification program – When not managed properly, detoxification from Xanax can be dangerous and even result in death due to adverse health consequences. For this reason, we provide 24-hour medically monitored detoxification services at our Xanax addiction treatment and rehab center for those individuals who have become physically dependent on Xanax. Constant monitoring is needed to ensure safety and manage the negative withdrawal symptoms. Once the toxic substances have been removed from your body, you are ready to begin the process of therapeutic recovery.

Group Therapy – Group therapy is effective intervention for treating those with substance abuse problems. Group sessions at our Xanax addiction treatment and rehab center create a social environment where individuals can bond and work together, practicing new skills they’ve been learning. Process groups will be held to allow patients to work through emotions related to Xanax addiction. Psycho-educational groups are more geared toward providing education on a variety of topics that relate to substance abuse and addiction. Group therapy encourages individuals to take more active approach to their recovery.

Individual Sessions – Most of our treatment and rehab techniques are centered on group work, however we understand that there will be times when an individual will benefit more from individual sessions at our addiction treatment center. Individual time spent with a counselor will be held for those who need to work on specific concerns and investigate issues surrounding the underlying reason for their Xanax addiction.

Family Therapy – Family involvement is vital to the recovery process for individuals who are working through Xanax addiction issues. We believe that family should be involved in all aspects of the recovery process so that they can offer the additional support needed for successful treatment and rehab. Family members are encouraged to visit at our Xanax addiction treatment and rehab center weekly. Our staff can help you and your family work through any issues that may have been caused by your Xanax addiction and to help you learn how to be there for each other.

In addition to therapeutic interventions, we provide several experiential opportunities.  These include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy

Continuing Care

Continuing Care – What Comes Next?

At Park Royal, we make sure that continuity of care is an established part of the recovery process. For some individuals, once inpatient therapy at our Xanax addiction treatment and rehab center has been completed, it may mean that they are ready to return back home. If this is the case, our discharge planners will work with you to establish referrals for an outpatient therapist and connections to community services. This will make sure that you have an external support system to turn to should difficulties arise. Other individuals may still need more structured treatment and rehab and may be enrolled in one of our Outpatient Programs.

Our Intensive Outpatient Programs are designed for those who have completed inpatient treatment and rehab for their Xanax addictions at our center, but still require a structured recovery environment. This rehab program provides structured care, but does not offer 24-hour supervision. Participation in this program will consist of group sessions, individual therapy, and educational programs. Focus will be placed on improving mood, socialization skills, support systems, and relationships. This program provides therapeutic activities for 3 hours a day in addition to individualized treatment and rehab regimens.

When my brother entered treatment for his xanax addiction, I wasn't sure it was going to work. But Park Royal must do something right because he has been 6 months sober since his release and I'm so happy to see him back to being himself.
