Xanax Addiction Treatment & Rehab

Xanax addiction is a medical disease, and it is never too soon or too late to seek out help in addressing this condition. Through a combination of physical and psychological strategies, rehabilitation is possible for everyone. Drug addiction rehabilitation is a powerful tool that has helped many people addicted to Xanax recover from their prescription dependency. The Recovery Village has treatment plans for any person suffering from Xanax addiction. Whether this is your first time entering into rehab or you have experienced relapse and are getting back on track, The Recovery Village is here and ready to get you the help that you need.
The purpose of drug rehabilitation is to free a person from substance abuse and help them live a life of recovery. Many people seek out treatment when they uncover how they are using the drug compulsively and without regard to the negative effects on their lives. At The Recovery Village, we understand how Xanax addiction can take over a person’s daily life. We know how addiction works, and we know how to address it. The Recovery Village offers a number of methods for Xanax addiction help:

  • Medically supervised detoxification
  • Residential inpatient treatment
  • Outpatient treatment
  • Intensive outpatient treatment programming
  • Dual diagnosis treatment
  • Aftercare planning and relapse prevention

At The Recovery Village, drug rehabilitation begins with patient assessment. A well-trained team of medical professionals — including doctors, nurses, therapists, counselors and support staff — will meet with a patient and form a treatment plan according to his or her individual needs. This plan will commence when a person has officially entered the program. Once admitted, the first step is detoxification and withdrawal. This process is often not a pleasant one, but it is necessary. The Recovery Village medical staff will closely monitor a patient during this time in order to ensure they have a safe and secure withdrawal.

Once the process of detoxification is complete and the body has cleared the Xanax from its system, patients will enter into the rehabilitation phase of their recovery. Xanax rehabilitation involves a variety of physical and psychological treatments in order to help address the damage that the drug has done to the body. This is the longest phase of treatment. Medical professionals and addiction experts recommend an individual remain in inpatient care for at least 28 days. Research shows the longer a person remains in a professional rehabilitation environment, the more likely they are to resist relapse.

Following rehabilitation comes the last stage of the treatment process, called aftercare planning. Aftercare planning consists of collaborative and strategic preparation for a patient’s long-term success. At The Recovery Village, aftercare plans typically involve skills training, scheduled checkups with doctors and therapists, and accountability measures such as drug testing. The goal of aftercare is to help patients avoid relapse. To accomplish this, we help patients identify and employ the skills and thought processes they learned during rehabilitation in post-rehab life.

Every person’s journey to rehabilitation and recovery is different. Many people receive an enormous benefit from treatment. Xanax can take many things from a person — their physical health and the ability to engage in a positive relationship, for example — but these elements of a happy and healthy life can absolutely be regained in sobriety. Rehabilitation is an ongoing process. Xanax is a highly addictive substance that is difficult to eliminate from a person’s life. Addiction does not have a simple cure, but with patience and determination, recovery is possible.

Inpatient treatment is often recommended for those with severe Xanax dependence or addiction, but is particularly recommended for those entering their first rehabilitation experience. Inpatient care usually follows detoxification and withdrawal, moving on into a number of different therapies after this critical first step. Moving from evaluation to admittance, admittance to withdrawal, withdrawal to inpatient rehabilitation, and inpatient rehabilitation to outpatient support, these program provides well-structured, expertly planned support and assistance for those addicted to Xanax during every step of their journey.

The length of stay for inpatient care varies, though the average tends to fall somewhere between 30 and 60 days. During this time, patients will gain the skills and knowledge they need to help them address their physiological and psychological dependence on the drug. Therapy and counseling in individual and group settings are key parts of this process.

The inpatient treatment program, like all rehabilitation programs at The Recovery Village, is completely confidential. The intensive nature of the program is very helpful for those suffering from serious Xanax abuse issues. The highly structured system allows them to focus entirely on recovery. Living on campus at an inpatient center is helpful for many program participants, even those who live locally, as it provides a trigger-free environment and around-the-clock access to medical professionals.

There are many differences between the inpatient and outpatient treatment programs offered at The Recovery Village’s nationwide centers. When enrolled in the outpatient treatment program, most patients do not reside at the center, but come in for treatment on a schedule. This type of rehabilitation treatment is recommended as a second step, coming after inpatient treatment. For those who have done well in inpatient treatment for some time, outpatient treatment can be a very helpful step in the process of returning to daily life and activities. Outpatient care at The Recovery Village includes:

  • Individual counseling
  • Group therapy
  • Psychiatric care for those suffering from anxiety, depression and other co-occurring disorders
  • Nutritional counseling

The Recovery Village’s outpatient therapy option offers a greater level of independence and autonomy for those transitioning back into their regular lives. A majority of patients in these programs have already undergone detoxification and withdrawal, as well as inpatient rehabilitation. Some patients with less severe or more recent addictions are able to begin their treatment in the outpatient program. The structure of this program provides support and accountability, as well as a clear and easy connection to medical personnel and addiction specialists.

The outpatient program also offers many patients the ability to maintain their employment and work responsibilities, as well as the ability to care for the needs of their home and family. Family therapy is also offered through this program, helping the family unit to process and address the changes that are happening in the life of the addict. Those with deeply rooted addictions who live in a highly triggering environment may need to enroll in the inpatient program or come into The Recovery Village on a daily basis.

Therapy is the cornerstone of most drug recovery programs. The Recovery Village offers a wide range of counseling options and therapies, catering to the needs of all patients from all backgrounds. There are many different forms of therapy, and people respond differently to each. A person’s treatment team will tailor and personalize the therapeutic experience, working with each individual to find what is effective. Guests work collaboratively with their team and are involved in treatment planning every step of the way.

The most common type of drug rehabilitation therapy is individual therapy. This behavioral treatment centers around a one-on-one relationship between a patient and a therapist. The therapist will help the patient explore and identify emotions and issues in their life, particularly those related to their addiction.

Group therapy is also based on relationships, as there are more than two people involved in each session. In these settings, a skilled counselor will lead a conversation with a group of patients, fostering openness and helping them to share their experiences of addiction. Group therapy is often a powerful social tool, helping patients build networks of mutual support. These groups often continue to exist beyond their formal start and end dates, as people form relationships and continue to support each other further down the road to recovery.

Group education and drug education opportunities are also available at The Recovery Village. Highly trained addiction specialists lead regular informational and psychoeducational classes, helping patients to understand the physiology of their addiction. These skills often translate into later self-help behaviors that encourage successful and long-lasting recovery. Many people find it very helpful to understand what their bodies and minds are going through as they recover.

The Recovery Village also offers skills training, helping patients address harmful emotions and behaviors, turning negative patterns into positive actions. Family education events offer loved ones the opportunity to process and learn more about addiction and what their family member is experiencing, as well as how to support them. Dietary counseling helps patients plan out healthy meals, which is often helpful for those who have experienced changes in weight or appetite while using Xanax.

The centers also offer a wide variety of scientifically backed alternative therapies at The Recovery Village. These alternatives include art therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, therapeutic gardening, equine therapy and yoga. Alternative practices are often enormously helpful for individuals with co-occurring emotional issues. Before a patient is released from programming, they will work together with their treatment team to formulate a plan for the future. This is called discharge planning, sometimes referred to as aftercare planning, and helps patients maintain sobriety after leaving The Recovery Village.

At The Recovery Village, we believe in treating a patient, not a disease. We aim to care for a person’s overall well-being, and this includes physical and psychological issues that extend beyond Xanax addiction. Many people who develop a Xanax addiction are dealing with additional disorders, such as anxiety, panic, or depression. These disorders are likely to resurface during detoxification, withdrawal, and rehabilitation. Patients’ physical and mental health are addressed upon their admittance to the program. When facing another struggle in addition to addiction, it is called a dual diagnosis.

Co-occurring disorders are dangerous because they tend to feed off of one another, each increasing the severity of the other. For instance, a person struggling with anxiety will begin to take Xanax to curb these feelings. After some time, Xanax use can cause anxiety. As a response, a person may simply up their intake of the medication, expecting therapeutic effects. The spiraling relationship of anxiety and addiction is a good example of how impossible it is to treat addiction without addressing the rest of a person’s physical and mental needs. For long-term healing, cohesive treatment is often best.

Behavioral treatment, group and individual therapy are the main methods for addressing co-occurring mental health issues. A patient’s physician may prescribe a psychological medication in order to help alleviate the symptoms of their co-occurring disorder. Examples of mental health issues that can co-occur with Xanax addiction are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Eating disorders, such as anorexia or bulimia

It is also very common for those addicted to Xanax or another benzodiazepine to be simultaneously addicted to another substance, such as an opiate or stimulant. In these cases, an integrated treatment approach is used. Treatment teams will help patients address not just one addiction, but all of the patterns involved in addictive behavior.

Substance use disorder does not occur in a vacuum. Many people experience a variety of physical and psychological issues surrounding the disease. Addressing each individual as a whole, not a collection of disparate physical and psychological issues, The Recovery Village takes all possible measures to provide for a patient’s every need.

Drug rehabilitation can be costly, but it is a necessary expense. Many health insurance companies are able to assist patients in their payments, helping smooth the path toward recovery. Rehabilitation costs do vary according to the level of care received, as well as the length of time a person is actively undergoing treatment.

At The Recovery Village, we recognize that the cost of rehabilitation may prohibit some people from some seeking out treatment. We believe that all people, regardless of means, deserve to have the best possible addiction recovery care. Acting on this, we offer our patients financial flexibility through a variety of payment plans and rehabilitation financing. Call our intake coordinators to discuss your particular financial situation. We want to help you get the treatment you need.

Many different insurance companies cover Xanax addiction treatment. Individual coverage does vary from plan to plan, so it is best to ask your particular provider about addiction treatment options. Most insurance providers list addiction rehabilitation as a primary benefit, meaning that coverage is legally mandated. The Recovery Village is glad to work with a variety of insurance companies, and our intake coordinators are always available to answer questions and help fill out paperwork. We want you to be able to understand your coverage and all of the options that are available to you.
If you are searching for ways to help pay for addiction treatment, there are a number of financing options available for you. We believe that anyone suffering from Xanax addiction deserves the high quality care offered at The Recovery Village. There are a variety of personal payment options, such as personal financing and personal loan opportunities. You may also consider looking into benefits offered through state and local government services such as Medicaid, Medicare and the Veterans Administration.
