Prescribed use of Xanax has been on the rise as more people search for ways to combat short-term anxiety and panic disorders. This has led to drug abuse as the number of reported cases of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) has steadily increased over the years. Xanax is meant to be a short-term solution, but the many uncertainties of life can lead to long-term problems, with anxiety just being one of them.
At Oceanfront Recovery, we have created a supportive environment in one of the world’s most beautiful destinations, Laguna Beach, to welcome those brave enough to face their Xanax addiction treatment confidently. What seems like a long road becomes shorter day by day as we aid you in reaching your destination in recovery. Everyone’s journey is different, but they all share the same goal: revive the person they were before succumbing to Xanax addiction.
Effects of Xanax Abuse
Xanax is a central nervous system depressant and is meant to slow down heart rate, blood pressure, and temperature in the body. It also works to minimize anxiety, panic, and stress. After using Xanax for some time, people will decrease the dosage and inevitably suffer from withdrawal symptoms. This makes them increase their intake to battle the unpleasant side effects of withdrawal which include but are not limited to the following: headaches, blurred vision, anxiety, panic, and seizures.
Signs of Xanax Addiction
Xanax addiction is difficult to overcome. If any of these symptoms sound familiar and you have been wondering how to rectify your reliance on prescribed medication, please act immediately. Here are 11 symptoms of Xanax addiction to be aware of:
- Repeated problems meeting obligations in the area of family, work, or school because of Xanax use
- Spending a significant amount of one’s time getting Xanax, using it, or recovering from side effects of use
- Even when taking Xanax gets a person into hazardous circumstances, the use continues.
- An ongoing desire to stop using Xanax but being unable to do so
- Continuing to take Xanax even though it causes or frustrates interpersonal or social problems
- Building a tolerance over time, which requires a person to take increasing amounts of Xanax
- Using more Xanax or using it for longer than intended
- Experiencing withdrawal symptoms after stopping use of Xanax or if the familiar dose is significantly reduced
- Continuing to use Xanax despite experiencing one or more negative personal outcomes
- Craving Xanax
