Xanax Detox in Islip, New York

Xanax Detox in Islip, New York

Benzodiazepines such as Xanax are incredibly addictive, and to help a person who is struggling with a Substance Use Disorder, also known as addiction, to Xanax, this person will first require a medically supervised detoxification. When a person abuses Xanax for weeks months or years, their body will adapt to the presence of the benzodiazepine. Unless they continuously ingest it, they will experience Xanax addiction withdrawal symptoms. The symptoms that this addiction causes can be life-threatening; therefore, it is never recommended for any person to attempt to detox from Xanax without medical supervision.

The withdrawal symptoms that Xanax addiction or abuse causes include dangerous seizures, which could lead to death. The reason that the drug Xanax is likely to cause a life-threatening seizure is that in general, benzodiazepine type medications are used to calm central nervous system responses, known as GABA activity, that are responsible for increasing anxiety. Xanax is the brand name for the pharmaceutical benzodiazepines drug alprazolam. Alprazolam relaxes the GABA activity so that a person can feel calm and not anxious. When a person uses Alprazolam/Xanax addictively, their brain relies on Xanax to sustain this relaxed state. Essentially once someone abruptly stops their Xanax intake, the central nervous system goes into overdrive, flooding their system with chemicals and neurological responses that are likely to cause seizures.

The National Center for Biotechnology Information advances science and health explain how quickly Alprazolam/Xanax versus other benzodiazepine medications such as clonazepam (Klonopin), or diazepam (Valium), cause withdrawal symptoms to occur. Xanax withdrawal symptoms are also worse comparatively. NCBI completed a study with mice who were given Alprazolam/Xanax to conclude that Xanax is more addictive and dangerous than other benzodiazepines. 

Alprazolam use for merely one week produces discontinuation symptoms in mice, and the withdrawal syndrome associated with its discontinuation is generally regarded as being more severe than other benzodiazepine withdrawal syndromes…Specifically, alprazolam withdrawal syndrome has been described as involving a more complicated and, in some aspects, unique rebound anxiety compared with other benzodiazepine withdrawal syndromes. (NCBI)

The withdrawal symptoms that Xanax causes are incredibly uncomfortable. Ironically, Xanax Detox symptoms cause an individual to experience precisely what they took Xanax to suppress or diminish. What this usually looks like is an individual will use Xanax to relieve them of anxiety or nervousness. Over time they depend on it to cure them of their anxiety or panicky symptoms. Once they stop using Xanax, they will feel those symptoms severely.

Common Xanax Detox symptoms:

  • Shaking hands and feeling nervous or panicky
  • Rapid heart rate and lightheadedness
  • Insomnia and inability to relax
  • Headaches and muscle spasms
  • Psychosis and Hallucinations
  • Seizures

The Xanax detox programs that we connect clients to provide safe medications that eliminate withdrawal symptoms. Since Xanax withdrawal symptoms can be life-threatening medical doctors are required to oversee Xanax detoxification. To reduce withdrawal symptoms, doctors who specialize in Benzodiazepine addiction will prescribe a taper down method to help someone detox Xanax safely. The taper protocol allows the person’s body to adapt to less and less Xanax in their system. Tapers reduce the risk of seizures, as well as lowering anxiety and other symptoms that are so prevalent during detox.
