Xanax detox is treatment for dependence of alprazolam, part of the benzodiazepine group of drugs, prescribed for patients suffering from anxiety, panic disorders, insomnia, and acute stress reactions. Xanax is a central nervous system depressant working by slowing down the movement of chemicals in the brain which can become unbalanced. This produces a calming effect in the body and brain and allows a sedation which can induce sleep or relieve anxiety. Many people become addicted to Xanax without knowing it, and anyone who takes the drug can become addicted even when only taking it as prescribed. Long-term usage of Xanax can lead to tolerance, physical dependence, and withdrawal symptoms with an attempt to reduce consumption. Individuals can find they need to take more to achieve the same effect the drug originally produced, and unfortunately the risk involved with this kind of dependence can be extreme. Xanax abuse can produce health consequences such as toxic reactions, respiratory depression, hypertension, seizures, cardiovascular collapse and lethal overdose.

How to detox from Xanax

Whether taking the drug for prescription purposes or recreationally, Xanax detox will be a necessary step in treating the dependence for a full recovery. Some of the common post-acute withdrawal symptoms include:


Blurred vision


Sleep disorders



Tingling hands and feet

Weight loss

The body’s responses to Xanax withdrawal can be life threatening, depending on dosage and duration of use, so it’s essential for people with a Xanax addiction to consult professionals. At New Start Recovery, psychological and medical support are available 24/7, both of which are important factors for recovery from Xanax dependence. Individuals with mental conditions or addiction problems who take Xanax can face a rebound of anxiety symptoms when they stop. This can be an upsetting stage in recovery which puts patients at high risk for relapse. It’s important to be in a safe and comfortable environment which promotes treatment of addiction and addresses mental health concerns in order to move forward in recovery.

Defeat the stigma. Get help and live your life free of addiction.
