How Long Island Center for Recovery (LICR) Treats Xanax Addiction

Xanax addiction treatment begins with medically supervised detox. Xanax addiction, like many other benzodiazepines, can be deadly during the withdrawal period without the proper tapering off and support. Stopping cold-turkey can lead to seizures as well as other life-threatening impacts so clients seeking treatment for Xanax addiction go through the proper tapering off detox for at least 5-7days.

Even during the detox period, clients are encouraged to join groups and meetings at our inpatient treatment facility. The Xanax withdrawal period can feel daunting but it helps to have the support of others who are going through the same or similar experiences to share in positive outputs and focus towards a successful sobriety.

Group sessions are a wonderful support but clients suffering from Xanax addiction find that the root of their addiction stems from the client’s feelings of anxiety. For this reason, individual sessions focus on techniques and skills to manage anxiety as feelings of anxiousness set in. These tend to be the strongest post-acute withdrawal symptoms for clients recovering from a Xanax addiction, so it’s essential that clients take full advantage of these individual sessions to learn how to identify the feelings of anxiety, and cope with them without the eventual use of Xanax or other benzodiazepines.

Additional Recommended Therapies For Xanax Addiction Treatment

Beyond the group and individual sessions, Xanax addiction clients are also recommended to take advantage of the following holistic approaches:

Utilizing these forms of holistic therapy and treatment will help clients begin to control their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as they progress in their Xanax addiction treatment. The full allotment of programs is what increases the success of our clients, relying only on psychoeducation through individual and group therapy sessions can only go so far. These holistic therapies bring peace back to the body and brain, allowing clients to absorb and process the information they’re gaining, specifically following their withdrawal and detoxification period.

Frequently asked questions from clients seeking Xanax treatment at Long Island Center for Recovery (LICR)

Will I learn how to manage my anxiety?

Many clients come to us, addicted to Xanax and reporting high levels of anxiety before and during their active use, and so they are afraid that they won’t be able to cope without the use of Xanax. At LICR, clients will learn how the cycle of use/abuse/addiction leads to an actual increase of anxiety and how in the early recovery, feelings of anxiousness may be triggering, but clients will learn coping skills immediately upon entering Xanax treatment, and will strengthen those skills over the course of their 28 day stay.
