Xanax (alprazolam) is a medication commonly prescribed to treat various anxiety disorders. However, this drug is often misused and stands as the most abused prescription medication in the United States. At Vita Recovery we offer individualized and comprehensive care plans to free you from the grip of Xanax addiction.
Xanax addiction often starts with a few occasions of recreational misuse - but a complex net of social and emotional personal factors, stigma, shame, and physical dependence can quickly trap a user in addiction.
Vita Recovery offers an innovative, whole-client approach. We provide the chance to break the debilitating cycle of dependency and addiction in a luxury high-end center, equipping you with the essential tools necessary for sustaining a healthier and more fulfilling lifestyle.
Do you believe you or a loved one is addicted to Xanax? Xanax is prescribed to reduce troubling thought processes, racing thoughts, and anxiety, so identifying an addiction can be tricky. Prolonged Xanax use can cause detrimental damage to your mental and physical health, so early intervention is crucial. If you are worried about Xanax use, warning signs to spot include: (60)
Continuation of substance use despite negative consequences to one’s life
Strong urge and want for Xanax
Intense feelings of worry if you are unable to obtain Xanax
Taking Xanax outside of a prescription
Inability to regulate Xanax use
Loss of motivation
Neglecting day-to-day obligations, e.g., work, school, or family life
Identifying and admitting the possibility of a substance use disorder is the biggest hurdle in recovery for many, often preventing people from receiving essential support and help. If you have any worries or doubts about your Xanax use, contact us today at (786) 559-0623.
Our exceptional team of compassionate professionals can guide you in receiving an official diagnosis and will assist you throughout the rest of your recovery journey.
Although effective in reducing symptoms of anxiety, Xanax has a high potential for abuse, increasing the risk of adverse short and long-term effects on your physical and mental health.
When taken orally, Xanax is absorbed rapidly into the bloodstream, and effects are experienced within 30 minutes of use. Xanax increases the activity of GABA, a neurotransmitter that depresses the central nervous system, slowing brain activity. Other short-term effects include:
Inability to concentrate
Regular drug abuse increases the risk of developing physical dependence. This means that when drug use is abruptly stopped ("cold turkey" quitting) withdrawal symptoms are far more likely. We strongly recommend against attempts to stop Xanax use without the assistance of medical professionals. Withdrawal symptoms include:
Heightened risk of blood clots
Xanax rehab programs are life-changing experiences for many who enroll in them. At Vita Recovery, we provide you with a compassionate, high-quality, and inclusive space to guide you on the journey for clarity and strength, building strategies to handle stressors and triggers.
Throughout treatment, you can expect our experienced team of licensed therapists and board-certified psychiatrist to utilize a range of methods and modalities to respond to your unique and individual needs.
The first stage in the treatment process for Xanax addiction typically begins with a medical detox. If you are physically dependent on Xanax, you may experience withdrawal symptoms which can be difficult to manage without support. A carefully medically supervised detoxification will make the process as smooth as possible, paving a gentle transition to the next stages of the recovery process.
Following detox, Vita Recovery offers treatment programs involving cognitive behavioral therapy, family-based therapy, 12-step principles, and more. Using a modern and innovative approach, we will work with you to identify root causes, coping strategies, and any underlying mental health disorders that may be present. Our Miami team will customize a treatment program to increase your chances of long-lasting sobriety.
Recovery is a lifelong process, and our team will create continuing care plans ensuring resources, encouragement, and a community of care and support all stay with you down the line.
At Vita Recovery, we offer three addiction treatment programs that are created with the latest industry research and empirically derived intervention methods to ensure exceptional clinical and medical care. Our partial hospitalization program suits those transitioning from inpatient treatment to outpatient care. Our intensive outpatient treatment is an inherently flexible program for individuals who may have alternative obligations. For those who need a more individual and customizable approach, our intensive treatment program (3A) can be tailored to suit your needs.
The importance of accessing professional treatment if you suffer from addiction to Xanax cannot be overstated. Recovery is more than abstaining from substance abuse – long-term efficacy means identifying and addressing any problematic thoughts or behaviors that are reinforcing the cycle of drug abuse. Attending an addiction treatment center ensures that the underlying causes of your addiction can be appropriately dealt with, an essential step for preventing relapse in the future.
Treatment at Vita Recovery provides you with the tools and continuing care plans necessary to maintain successful and long-term recovery. Everybody deserves access to treatment to recover from the grip of addiction and reach out to a better future.
The type of program determines the length of Xanax treatment. At Vita Recovery, our programs vary in length and are adjusted to accommodate your individual needs. Our Partial Hospitalization Program is intended for 30 days, whereas our Intensive Outpatient Program typically lasts from 4-6 weeks.
For those who may be worried about rehab while pregnant, we also offer assistance in finding medication-assisted treatment. This can help both mother and child recover more safely. For those who need to avoid MAT, therapeutic interventions, counseling, and community support are core to our approach.
At Vita Recovery, we do everything in our power to make addiction recovery treatment available to all. We work with most major health insurance providers who cover medical treatments for substance abuse. Due to insurance policy differences, the insurance coverage provided will differ.
The Affordable Care Act ensures marketplace insurance plans issue coverage for substance abuse and mental health treatment. If you are accessing treatment without insurance, you may still be eligible for payment plans or partial coverage. If you are worried about payment, contact us today to discuss potential options.
For most people, inpatient treatment is effective at the start of the healing process, so we offer residential detox early on. Following this, outpatient programs are an ideal choice for many that want to integrate their recovery into daily life, maintain responsibilities, and minimize disruption while remaining outcome-oriented.
MAT can be used as part of Xanax addiction treatment and some addiction medicine can be used to reduce the experience of adverse withdrawal symptoms. Careful, supervised medication management reduces the risk of dependency and is associated with the best outcomes in short and long-term relapse prevention.
For many, the fear of withdrawal is a huge barrier to recovery and sobriety. Medical detox allows you to undergo withdrawal in a safe and comfortable setting, minimizes adverse effects, and grants access to specialist supervision and compassionate support with a focus on mental health.
Xanax is a prescription medication used to treat anxiety disorders, seizures, or sleep disorders. It is part of the benzodiazepine family of drugs that are recognized as sedative-hypnotics. These make a person feel calm and sedated by depressing activity in the central nervous system.
At Vita Recovery, our innovative and compassionate approach to customized care combined with our high-end facilities provides patients with luxury and thorough treatment plans that address all aspects of health.
With over 125 years of collective experience, our Miami team can be trusted to get your life back on track through our outpatient treatment services. Contact us today to discuss more. We are always here to help.
