Before we get into how to treat Xanax, let’s take a look at what Xanax is and its effects on the body so we can better understand this prescription drug that has become the number one prescribed psychiatric medication in the United States. This drug is most popular amongst teenagers and young adults. Unfortunately, Xanax is oftentimes over-used and over-prescribed to those who suffer from anxiety and panic disorders. This drug has been known to have many side-effects that involve seizures, drowsiness, blurred vision, muscle weakness, loss of memory, and several other related problems.
Xanax, also known as Alprazolam, belongs to the benzodiazepines class of medications, which act on the brain and central nervous system to increase GABA in your brain. GABA, also known as gamma-aminobutyric acid, functions as a neurotransmitter to regulate brain activity.
Many treatment centers provide Xanax detox. Still, at Passages, we provide you with the most effective and reliable medical technologies to help you get clean in a comfortable setting. Our compassionate care and 24/7 nursing staff will consistently track your progress as you begin to free yourself from Xanax dependency.
