Xanax, or alprazolam, is a benzodiazepine like Valium, Ativan, and Klonopin. It is a depressant or tranquilizer used to help relieve the symptoms of anxiety and panic disorders. When a client is dealing with a dual problem such as this, the dependency on the drug and the anxiety disorder must be treated hand-in-hand.
Medical support is required for detox from Xanax and other diazepines, as withdrawal may be dangerous and include delirium and seizures. The combination of physical and emotional dependency must be treated during withdrawal from Xanax. At Sunrise Detox, we use medications that effectively manage Xanax withdrawal symptoms and allow our clients to remain comfortable and relaxed during their stay with us. If you have any questions, please contact our admissions specialists by calling (954) 869-9759.
About Xanax (alprazolam)
Xanax is Pfizer Pharmaceutical's trade name for alprazolam, a drug widely used to treat stress and anxiety/panic disorders. A fast-acting benzodiazepine, Aprazolam acts as a sedative, hypnotic, skeletal muscle relaxant, anticonvulsant, and can cause amnesia. Xanax is very powerful; too large a dose of Xanax can be deadly.
Xanax is the most prescribed and the most misused benzodiazepine in the U.S. Xanax can help relieve drug-induced agitation and insomnia, and is used to relieve distress associated with “bad trips” on psychedelic drugs, such as LSD.
