Xanax is a prescription medication that is utilized in the treatment of anxiety. It is also a medication that tends to be abused by individuals. When this substance is consumed, it can balance out neurotransmitters within an individual’s brain, helping to prevent symptoms of anxiety from manifesting. However, when this medication is abused, individuals will suffer mind and mood altering effects that can easily kick start a deadly pattern of substance abuse. Before the individual is fully aware of the consequences that this behavior can cause, his or her work and social life can be damaged, and many destructive physical and psychological health concerns can develop. Defeating an addiction to Xanax can be extremely complicated and is often most effective when done under the supervision and guidance of trained professionals, at a reputable addiction rehab center, who can help those who abuse Xanax develop the appropriate skills to abstain from future use. Being unable to do so, however, can lead to a number of negative consequences that can be permanent.

How to Help a Loved One

Helping a loved one get treatment for Xanax addiction

While prior efforts in helping a loved one defeat a Xanax addiction might have been unsuccessful, there are still a variety of things that you, as a concerned loved one, can do to help someone you care for overcome a substance abuse problem such as this. Consider the following:

  • Learn as much about Xanax abuse, the disease of addiction, and the effects that Xanax can have on your loved one.
  • Speak with an addiction specialist at a local rehab center to decide upon what type of care might be best for your loved one at this time. He or she can always help you gather more information about treatment providers and your loved one’s treatment needs.
  • Talk to your loved one about his or her Xanax abuse. Let him or her know that you are there for him or her to help, not to judge or argue.
  • Even if your loved one is defensive when you speak with him or her, it is imperative to keep encouraging him or her to obtain treatment. Be sure to let him or her know that obtaining help from professionals will be of extreme benefit.
  • Suggest that your loved one reaches out to his or her provider of choice to set up an assessment, and let him or her know that you will be there to support him or her during that appointment if your presence is requested.

As soon as your loved one begins rehab, be sure to go to all family sessions, engage in all opportunities to see him or her while in treatment, and stay in contact. It is a great idea to speak with your loved one’s provider to determine how you can help support your loved one at this time.

Finally, as someone who is concerned, you should obtain support for yourself. It is likely that you have been negatively impacted by your loved one’s Xanax abuse, and you can benefit from delving into your own process of healing while your loved one focuses on recovery.

Why Consider Treatment

Why consider treatment for Xanax addiction at Huntington Creek Recovery Center in the Northeast

Despite the fact that numerous individuals who abuse Xanax think it is safe because it is a prescribed medication, the truth is that a Xanax abuse problem can cause individuals to suffer a downward spiral within all aspects of his or her life. Those who abuse Xanax can start to socially isolate themselves, leading to the potential demise of close relationships. In addition, if an individual is addicted to Xanax, he or she will likely suffer a decline within his or her job performance and possibly lose his or her job. Regarding one’s physical and psychological health, allowing a substance abuse problem such as this to continue can increase one’s chances of suffering other detriments to his or her overall wellbeing. However, if an individual obtains rehab to end his or her Xanax abuse, these effects can be prevented.

In addition, all of the staff members at Huntington Creek Recovery Center are required to meet a number of hours for continuing education, which means that they are knowledgeable in the advances that are being made in the treatment of addictions and co-occurring disorders. This allows patients the comfort of knowing that they are receiving the best care possible. Furthermore, a staff member is trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), which is designed to focus on trauma as it relates to addiction.

Each patient who receives care at our addiction rehab center benefits from the creation of an individualized treatment plan that is crafted specifically to meet his or her needs, concerns, and treatment goals. The following may be included in these individualized treatment plans when individuals are working to overcome an addiction to Xanax:

Detoxification services: When individuals come to Huntington Creek Recovery Center with substances of abuse actively in their systems, such as Xanax, they will typically need to begin the treatment process by first participating in detoxification services. Also known as detox, this process allows individuals to have drugs or alcohol effectively removed from their bodies while remaining as comfortable as possible. The detox staff at rehab center consists of a medical director, a physician’s assistant, registered nurses, and licensed practical nurses, who all work to ensure the safety of each patient. While receiving care in the detox unit, patients will also be afforded full access to the clinical treatment program.

Medication management: Individuals who are suffering from symptoms of a co-occurring mental health disorder in addition to their battle with Xanax addiction may require certain medications in order to alleviate their distressing symptoms. During their first week in programming, patients will receive an assessment from a psychologist which will determine whether or not they are in need of medication or would benefit from further sessions with the psychologist. If medications are prescribed, the medical director and nurses will provide medication management services.

Individual therapy: Individual therapy sessions occur in a one-to-one forum where a patient meets confidentially with his or her primary counselor. When struggling with an addiction to Xanax, individual therapy sessions can be an ideal place for patients to process through what they are learning in treatment, as well as to discuss any concerns they have or any trials they are facing. These sessions are held at least two or three times per week.

Group therapy: Group therapy is another extremely beneficial medium for individuals who are working on recovering from an addiction to Xanax. In this setting, patients can benefit from being surrounded by peers who are facing challenges that are similar to their own. This can serve to provide a sense of comfort as men and women come to realize that they are not alone in their struggles, and therefore do not have to feel isolated. It can also be an optimal setting for individuals to give and receive support and encouragement to and from one another. Group therapy sessions are held daily and can include the following:

  • Trauma group
  • Psychoeducational groups
  • Anxiety group
  • Gender-specific groups
  • 12-Step topic groups
  • Open therapy groups
  • Coping skills group

All of the group topics are patient-driven, meaning that the topics discussed will be catered to the individuals who are participating in the group. As such, additional, substance-specific groups can be held, such as opioid-specific groups, alcohol-specific groups, etc.

Family therapy: Family therapy sessions are conducted by either a patient’s primary counselor or a family therapist and are held on an as-needed basis depending on each person’s individualized treatment plan. Pending the patient’s consent, his or her family members can be updated on his or her treatment progress each week. Additionally, family members are highly encouraged to be involved in treatment during weekly family visits. During visitation time, family members will also have the opportunity to participate in an educational lecture, though it is not required.

Experiential therapy: In order to offer patients the opportunity to receive a holistic approach to care, Huntington Creek Recovery Center implements a number of experiential therapies into the overall course of programming when individuals are working to overcome an addiction to Xanax or other substances. Examples of such therapeutic interventions can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Patient outings
  • Campfire groups
  • AA meetings
  • Acupuncture
  • Biofeedback bed
  • Meditation
  • Nature walks
  • Mini golfing
  • Team-building exercises
  • Hiking
  • NA meetings
  • Gym time
  • Basketball
  • Volleyball
  • Yoga

Additionally, a ropes course is included in the experiential therapy options offered at our rehab center. The ropes course can be viewed as a tangible way of confronting the obstacles that individuals face in early recovery. Working together, patients can develop communication skills, enhance team-building abilities, learn to give and receive constructive criticism, and learn how to utilize a support group. This type of therapy can be a wonderful way for patients to learn to combat their addictions to Xanax head-on and feel confident in their ability to maintain sobriety.

Continuing Care

Continuing care and levels of treatment for Xanax addiction

Because the road to lasting sobriety is not one that ends upon the completion of rehab, the staff at Huntington Creek Recovery Center is dedicated to providing patients with thorough discharge planning so that the gains they made in rehab will continue to be expanded upon. As such, the aftercare planning is viewed as a critical part of programming and begins within the first week of a patient’s admission into treatment. As a part of the assessment process, the treatment team will consult about what the best environment for each patient’s recovery may be. They pay special attention to the barriers that may exist in the patient’s ability to achieve recovery from an addiction to Xanax, and are careful to arrange aftercare plans accordingly. Several factors are taken into consideration when planning aftercare, which may include financial resources available to the patient, the stability of his or her home environment, the progress that he or she makes in treatment, any potential legal concerns, his or her motivation for recovery, the need for follow-up medical care that may include medication assisted treatment options, and the presence of any co-occurring disorders.
