Prescription Drug Addiction
Prescription drug addiction is a dangerous condition we can help with.
Xanax addiction is better understood when help is sought through a comprehensive addiction treatment center like Resurgence Behavioral Health. It is especially important to have a medically guided detox level of care, as withdrawal from Xanax addiction can be deadly. Your detox should be followed by inpatient and outpatient levels of care. Inpatient treatments are vital for the successful break of a Xanax addiction and to ensure recovery is met long term.
It’s not always easy to put life on hold in order attend inpatient rehab, but it is highly recommended. Seeking assistance in outpatient therapy may be an exceptional alternative so let us evaluate you and help you decide. In the meantime, here’s some background on your options.
Inpatient Treatment for Xanax Addiction
Those who are able to enter and stay involved with an inpatient therapy program will find that they are at the lowest risk for relapse thanks to professional, supportive care from our highly trained staff, peer-to-peer support, and a structured program that is recognized as one of the country’s finest. Some individuals with Xanax addiction may suffer from other underlying conditions, including disorders related to mental health. We’ll evaluate this, but be sure that slow withdrawals over time can help you both mentally and physically.
Having a supervised detox of Xanax, accompanied by individualized therapy and counseling, can also help with the underlying psychological effects of such an addiction.
Additional elements of our highly effective inpatient/outpatient program may also include the following types of treatments:
- 12 Step Programs
- SMART Recovery

- Music, art, or horse therapy
Long-Term Management and Relapse Deterrence
It is extremely difficult and potentially dangerous to break a Xanax addiction, so understand that going it alone is not the recommended route for long-term success. At Resurgence, we will provide you with all you need to know about ongoing treatments. These must be part of your relapse prevention strategy; we understand and are here to help. Here’s some things you will learn and practice with us:
Ways to avoid a relapse include:
- Understanding your Triggers– The most powerful thing a former Xanax addict can do, other than admitting they have a problem, is to also learn what triggers can set them off to reach for the Xanax bottle. Triggers can consist of people, places, thought patterns, or even things.
- Stress Reduction– Stress is an elemental trigger for those using Xanax. Finding ways to control your anxiety and stress can help you avoid a relapse. Become involved with meditation, exercise, or yoga – you will get a start on this in treatment with us.
- Support Groups– Having a strong support system in place will help you avoid relapse to Xanax. Programs like the 12 step program or SMART Recovery have a built-in structure with group meetings, so that you remain accountable for your actions.
- Bad Influences– It can be difficult to say goodbye to old friends, but when they encourage bad behavior and become a bad influence to your Xanax use, it’s time to cut ties. Your case manager and the rest of your treatment team will help you with this.
- Overall Health– In order to remain in recovery, you must take better care of your body and overall health. Eating a proper diet, receiving adequate sleep, stress management, and exercise can all lead to a happy, fuller recovery. You’ll begin to do this while with us in treatment.
- Staying Occupied– There’s an old saying that an idle mind can get you into trouble, and when you’re in recovery, being bored can lead to exactly this. Discover a new purpose in your life. Staying busy is key to your recovery; we’ll show you how and help you meet new friends and develop a sober support system.
With a Xanax addiction, help is possible. The only way for this to happen, though, is for you to admit you have a problem. We’ll help you take it from there!
