Xanax Addiction Treatment

Xanax, a prescription medication commonly used to treat anxiety and panic disorders, is widely abused among adolescents and teens. When misused, it can lead to serious health complications and addiction. Recognizing this growing problem, Kiwi Recovery has developed specialized Xanax addiction treatment programs tailored to the unique needs of adolescents and teens.

Our substance abuse treatment services are designed to address the behavior and mental health issues underlying addiction. We provide evidence-based therapies and group counseling to help teens build their support network for recovery. These therapies are accompanied by holistic approaches like meditation and music therapy to foster self-awareness and emotional regulation.

The Dangers of Xanax Addiction

Xanax addiction can have devastating effects on an adolescent’s or teen’s physical and mental health, as well as their social and academic life. Regular misuse can lead to dependence, where the body requires the drug to function normally. Abruptly stopping the drug can result in withdrawal symptoms, which can be life-threatening.

Some Xanax withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Insomnia or excessive sleepiness
  • Tremors
  • Muscle cramps and pain
  • Increased heart rate
  • Seizures

Moreover, Xanax abuse can lead to poor academic performance, strained relationships, and increased risk of engaging in risky behaviors. It is important to seek help as soon as possible if your teen is struggling with Xanax abuse and addiction.

The Need for Xanax Abuse Treatment Programs

Early intervention is critical in treating Xanax addiction in adolescents and teens. A comprehensive treatment program can help them overcome addiction and learn healthy coping mechanisms to manage stress and anxiety. Professional treatment is also helpful for managing withdrawal symptoms which can range from distressing to dangerous.

Kiwi Recovery’s programs are designed to address not only the addiction itself but also any underlying issues that may contribute to substance abuse. We strive to help teens build a foundation for lasting recovery. Our team of experienced professionals is dedicated to providing compassionate care and personalized treatment plans tailored to each teen’s individual needs.

Kiwi Recovery’s Xanax Addiction Treatment Services

We offer several outpatient options to cater to the different needs of our clients. These include:

CO-OCCURRING REHAB PROGRAM

Often, adolescents and teens struggling with Xanax addiction may have co-occurring mental health conditions like depression or anxiety. Our co-occurring rehab program provides integrated treatment addressing both substance abuse and mental health conditions concurrently, increasing the chances of a successful recovery.

FULL-DAY TREATMENT PROGRAM

Our full-day treatment program offers a structured environment for therapy services while allowing teens to return home at the end of the day. This program includes individual and group therapy sessions, educational classes about addiction, and medication-assisted treatment as needed.

INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT PROGRAM (IOP)

For those who require a less intensive approach, our intensive outpatient program offers flexibility and support. Teens attend therapy sessions and workshops several times a week while continuing with their daily activities.

ALUMNI PROGRAM

Recovery from Xanax addiction is a lifelong journey. Our alumni program provides continued support even after the completion of the initial treatment phase. Through regular meet-ups and online resources, our alumni can stay connected and find support in their ongoing recovery journey.
