Substance Abuse Treatment

Xanax addicts are always thinking about obtaining xanax when they are out of it. The drug becomes their primary focus in life and they cannot survive without it. Withdrawal symptoms are particularly bad for this drug which is why it is said that prevention is better than addiction. Cognitive problems can arise which makes it difficult for a person to construct proper words or sentences.

With the use of xanax, tolerance is built up in an instant. Consequently more and more of the drug is needed with no satisfaction in sight. The worse thing is, when users cannot find access to this drug, they start consuming other drugs to take care of their withdrawal symptoms.

The withdrawal symptoms could include:

  • Seizures
  • Weight loss
  • Sweating
  • Sleep disorders
  • Aggression
  • Tingling of hands and feet

In our Youngstown Rehab Center our team of experts help ease the withdrawal symptoms during the weaning off process.

Effects of Xanax Abuse:

The drug is a depressant of the central nervous system. Therefore, the effects of abuse are mostly on the brain functions.

Some of the effects include:

  • Slurred speech
  • Lack of coordination
  • Disorientation
  • Confusion

Sometimes, with excessive and long time use, some people also start suffering from short term memory loss. Severe sedation can also be experienced by taking in large amounts of xanax, this sedation can last for a few days.

Treatment for Xanax Addiction in Youngstown

Inpatient and outpatients treatment programs in Youngstown can be used for Xanax addiction. People with a more severe problem require inpatient treatment center stability. You always have the option of choosing any facility in Youngstown that is best for you.

The two types of outpatient treatment programs that exist are:

  • Daily Check-In Program: meeting drug abuse counselor once a day
  • Day Treatment Program: staying at the facility for eight hours a day

Since you dont completely live at the facility in both these cases, the counselor can subscribe random drug tests to ensure you are not using again.

The inpatient treatment program gives you a complete, temptation-free environment to recover completely. They also include group therapy sessions, various activities and individual therapy sessions for effective recovery.

Opiate Withdrawal

Opiate withdrawal occurs after ceasing use of opiates dramatically. While dependency on the drugs varies from person to person, the recovery period is long and difficult, as the body takes time to recover from the effects of the drug and eliminate physical dependency on it.

Symptoms of opiate withdrawal include:

  • Anxiety
  • Muscle aches
  • Agitation
  • Insomnia
  • Tearing
  • Runny nose
  • Excessive sweating
  • Yawning and fatigue

After these earlier symptoms, the addict may experience other symptoms at the later stages of opiate withdrawal such as:

  • Cramping
  • Dilated pupils
  • Goosebumps
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
