Xanax bars like other benzodiazepines, produce a state of calm in users. There are around 13 types of benzodiazepines, commonly referred to as “benzos,” that are approved for use as prescription medications by the FDA. They’re typically prescribed for the treatment of anxiety disorders and insomnia. To be considered one of these drugs, the substance must have certain properties in addition to providing relief from anxiety. For example, these drugs also act as muscle relaxants, anticonvulsants and have hypnotic effects. What many people either don’t understand or may ignore is that benzos aren’t designed as a long-term treatment option for anxiety and other disorders.

Xanax Abuse Treatment
Upwards of 47 million prescriptions for Xanax are written every year making it the most popular psychiatric medication in the United States. These numbers contribute to the fact that up to 40% of people who take benzodiazepines like Xanax will develop an addiction to those pills. Treatment for this kind of debilitating addiction has to be two-pronged: physical and psychological.
A medical detox is necessary to circumvent the hazards of benzo withdrawal and remain comfortable and safe as the body becomes accustomed to the absence of Xanax. Rehab, itself, however, is also vital for skill-building and relapse-prevention planning while learning to understand and defy core issues that may have led to addiction in the first place.
