Xanax Addiction Treatment

Treatment for Xanax addiction generally involves a tapered approach to detox, individual therapy, and supportive options. The intensity of the treatment will depend on the severity of the addiction.

Struggling with Xanax Addiction? Get Help Now

Xanax addiction treatment at Boca Recovery Center can help you change your life for the better. Medical detox can help you get sober safely, inpatient rehab can protect your early sobriety, and therapy can help you develop healthy habits for the future. 

Researchers say many people who abuse benzodiazepine drugs like Xanax also have an addiction to another substance (like opioids).[1] If your Xanax addiction is complicated by something else, we can address that issue too. 

Xanax Addiction Treatment at Boca Recovery Center

Experts agree that no single type of addiction care is appropriate for all people.[2] At Boca Recovery Center, we only use evidence-based methods in our Xanax addiction treatment program. That means we start every program with a conversation about your addiction, your history in treatment, and your health. With that information, we can build a plan out of the following elements:

Medical Detox 

After long-term Xanax use, your brain and body become accustomed to the medication. Quit abruptly, and you could face life-threatening complications, including seizures.[3] A medical detox program is designed to help you get sober through a supervised taper. 

Tapers must be individualized, based on how much Xanax you took, your overall health, and more. Some people can reduce their dose by 25% weekly, while others can go faster.[4] Your team can help you decide what’s best.

If you’ve used other substances, such as opioids, your team can help. If you experience withdrawal from those medications, we’ll be ready with the right therapies to keep you safe and comfortable. 

Medication-Assisted Treatment 

Some people can complete a Xanax taper within a few weeks, while others need much longer time frames to avoid complications. At Boca Recovery Center, we won’t rush you. If you’re not free from Xanax at the end of detox, you’ll enroll in medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

Your MAT program will likely involve continuing your Xanax taper at a rate that feels safe and comfortable. Some people need this help for just a few weeks, while others need longer time frames. 

Comprehensive Inpatient Rehab Treatment 

While a taper can help you stop taking Xanax, researchers say combining medications with therapy is more effective.[3] In a comprehensive inpatient treatment program at Boca Recovery Center, you’ll dedicate every day to recovery with a team that’s closely monitoring your progress. 

Every day in inpatient rehab is filled with activities, such as individual counseling, group counseling, supervised exercise, recreational therapy, and more. You’ll eat nutritious meals that can heal your body and mind. Every night, you’ll fall asleep in comfortable beds, knowing you’re on the right path to lasting sobriety. 

A typical inpatient rehab stay lasts for 30 to 90 days. Your treatment team will help you determine when you’re ready to move on to the next phase of care. 

Therapy Options 

At Boca Recovery Center, we hire experts in the field of addiction medicine. They have years of experience in administering therapy programs to people just like you. 

Some common therapies we use at Boca Recovery Center include the following:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): You work with a therapist to understand the connection between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors to avoid relapse and learn coping skills.
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT): This type of behavioral therapy involves talk therapy and an education aspect to improve emotional regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness.
  • Motivational enhancement therapy: This type of therapy focuses on resolving your ambivalence about entering treatment and stopping substance abuse.
  • Contingency management: You receive tangible rewards like vouchers or cash for abstinent behaviors, such as drug-free urine tests.
  • Group therapy: Facilitated by a mental health professional, you meet with other patients to discuss issues related to Xanax addiction, challenges, and successes. You may practice sober social skills, drug refusal strategies, and role-play.
  • Family therapy: Facilitated by a mental health professional, you and at least one family member meet to heal the damage caused by Xanax abuse, improve family bonds, and learn conflict resolution and communication skills.
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR): A therapist works with you to reduce the distress related to traumatic memories, using focused eye movements.
  • Holistic and complementary therapies: Combined with evidence-based therapies, holistic therapies like creative arts therapy and yoga may help treat various aspects of addiction.
