Signs and Symptoms of Xanax Addiction

Not everyone who takes prescription Xanax will develop a benzodiazepine use disorder. Knowing the signs of Xanax addiction can help you identify a problem in yourself or someone you know. Addiction can interfere with a person’s obligations, relationships, and all other areas of life. Signs and symptoms of Xanax addiction can be physical, emotional, and behavioral. Here are common signs and symptoms that can indicate Xanax addiction:

Signs & Symptoms

  • Difficulty fulfilling one's responsibilities at work, school, home, or other important parts of life due to Xanax misuse
  • Building a tolerance to Xanax (needing increasing amounts to achieve the desired effects)
  • Engaging in dangerous activities, such as driving while experiencing the effects of Xanax misuse
  • Doctor shopping, stealing, or engaging in other risky behaviors to acquire Xanax
  • Spending a great deal of time obtaining, using, or recovering from Xanax use
  • Difficulty discontinuing the use of Xanax despite wanting to stop
  • Loss of interest in activities one previously enjoyed 
  • An uptick in secretive behaviors
  • Slowed psychomotor activity 
  • Drowsiness
  • Slurred speech
  • Slowed breathing 
  • Confusion
  • Memory problems
  • Poor coordination
  • Withdrawals 
  • GI distress
  • Dizziness
  • Seizures
  • Cravings

If someone takes Xanax alongside other drugs, including alcohol, the risk of serious adverse consequences increases. Almost 14% of Opioid-related deaths in 2021, in fact, also involved the use of a Benzodiazepine drug. A Xanax addiction treatment center can help someone who is misusing Xanax on its own or alongside other drugs.

What Causes an Addiction to Xanax?

There’s no singular factor that causes an addiction to Xanax, but some factors increase the risk. Potential causes or contributors that make Xanax addiction more likely can include but aren’t restricted to the following.

  • Family history: If an immediate family member has a history of substance use disorders, one may be more likely to experience a substance use disorder themselves. 
  • Personal history of substance misuse: If someone has another substance use disorder or has misused other substances in the past, they might be more likely to live with an addiction to Xanax.
  • Other mental health conditions: Other mental health conditions or concerns can increase the risk of substance use disorders. One may also misuse Xanax to self-medicate if they have an untreated mental health condition.
  • Environment: Environmental factors such as easy access to Xanax or being around others who misuse Xanax may play a role in Xanax addiction.

Regardless of the factors that play a role in addiction for an individual, recovery is possible. There are a number of different effective treatment options used for Xanax addiction.

Types of Drug Rehab for Xanax Addiction

Treatment looks different for everyone. Individual therapy, involvement in groups, (via group therapy, support groups, or group recreation activities with other clients) family support, and rebuilding a person’s life through self-discovery, finding new coping skills, creating a relapse prevention plan, and focusing on future goals are all examples of activities and goals one may engage in at a Xanax drug rehab center. If clients have a comorbid mental health disorder, it’s ideal to address it during treatment. People overcoming Xanax addiction may benefit from one or more of the following levels of care at a Xanax addiction treatment center.

Residential inpatient

Exactly what it sounds like, residential inpatient treatment is a form of treatment that requires a person to eat, sleep, and live at a treatment facility for the duration of their care. Inpatient stays can vary, but most people attend residential inpatient treatment for around one to three months. One of the best features of inpatient treatment is that it is intensive, exposing clients to a number of different therapies, restorative activities (e.g., recreation, and community activities), and the support of a full treatment team, daily. Residential inpatient care at a Xanax addiction treatment center can be ideal because it temporarily removes you from the environment you previously used in and helps you build new, healthy routines. 

Outpatient treatment

Outpatient treatment is when a person lives outside of a treatment facility but commutes to the facility for care multiple times per week. Usually, outpatient programs require a time commitment of around twenty hours per week, with clients attending care three to five days per week during the day or in the evening. Although there is less supervision, which can be a drawback, outpatient treatment benefits the client in the sense that they can continue living their daily life. Outpatient care can make treatment more accessible for people with families or who can't take time off of work. Many people attend inpatient treatment first and step down to outpatient treatment, but some people start their recovery journey in an intensive outpatient treatment program.

Partial Hospitalization

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are structured similarly to outpatient programs in the sense that they do not require you to live at a treatment facility. The difference is that partial hospitalization programs offer a higher level of support than standard outpatient and usually involve a time commitment of twenty or more hours per week. For example, our partial hospitalization programs allow clients to attend treatment services six to eight hours per day, five days per week.

Dual diagnosis

Dual diagnosis treatment can be conducted on an inpatient or outpatient basis. It is highly recommended and effective for people who live with more than one condition. For example, someone who lives with both PTSD and a substance use disorder, or someone who lives with both depression and a substance use disorder. Dual diagnosis treatment addresses the full spectrum of a person's mental health concerns, which is why it is ideal when applicable. 

Some people endure medical detox before they enter a residential inpatient, outpatient, or partial hospitalization substance abuse program. A detoxification program at a facility like Centric Behavior Health allows clients to be supervised by medical professionals while they get off of drugs and alcohol. This is to ensure that they're able to discontinue use safely. Xanax withdrawals can be both uncomfortable and dangerous, so this can be valuable for people overcoming Xanax addiction.
