One of the hardest drugs to detox from is Xanax. It is not an uncommon scenario for a person to make the decision to try to get sober from Xanax addiction, start to detox them self and then be confronted with such painful withdrawal symptoms that they begin the abuse again.
The reason why Xanax is so addictive is that it enters and leaves a person’s body fairly fast which causes a person to take more of the drug. Eventually, a person will need more of the drug to get the same results as when they initially started to take the drug. This can and will result in an addiction to Xanax. Once addicted to Xanax it is one of the hardest drugs to get sober from.
Detoxing from Xanax without medical supervision can be deadly. The best way to detox from Xanax is under a proper medical detox program. Everyone who is addicted to Xanax is different. A person’s weight, age, sex and amount of Xanax being taken are just a few factors that a medical professional considers when deciding upon a detox protocol for a patient.
Once detox is complete in order to sustain recovery and deal with the psychological aspects of Xanax addiction a person is going to likely have to go to an addiction treatment program followed by the ongoing support of a twelve step program.
The sooner that Xanax addiction is addressed in an appropriate fashion the better chance a person has getting sober and staying sober. Without the professional help of an addiction treatment center getting sober can be done but staying sober can be nearly impossible.
