XANAX (BARS) REHAB

Victory Bay Drug Guide

Xanax is in a class of medications called benzodiazepines, which act on the brain and nerves. These drugs are commonly used to treat anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and insomnia. The term “bars” can also be known as “planks” or “zanies” and refers to the highest dosage of the Xanax pill.

Even though Xanax is prescribed for common disorders, the drug is highly addictive when used long-term and can lead many to seek Xanax addiction treatment. In fact, 70% of teens with a Xanax addiction get the drug from their family’s medicine cabinet.

Xanax Abuse

SYMPTOMS

Xanax bar highs tend to be very quick, often lasting 10-15 minutes, which makes many users reach for more shortly afterwards. Xanax can be taken orally or can be crushed up and ingested through the nose. Either way, some of the most common effects that lead to Xanax addiction include:

  • A feeling of intense well-being
  • Extreme relaxation
  • Fatigue
  • A calming effect
  • An overall feeling of euphoria
  • Lightheadedness

Dangers & Effects

Unfortunately, a Xanax tolerance can develop quickly and those with an addiction could take up to 20 or 30 pills per day. No matter what the dosage, Xanax bars can cause serious short-term and long-term effects and those in Xanax treatment experience body and mind alterations like:

Short-term effects include:

  • Decreased motivation for daily responsibilities
  • Loss of interest in hobbies
  • Mood swings
  • Drowsiness
  • Slurred speech
  • Lack of balance/coordination
  • Amnesia

Long-term effects include:

  • Hostility or aggression
  • Swelling in the hands and/or feet
  • Appetite changes
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Delirium
  • Impulsive behavior

Withdrawal

Unfortunately, Xanax users commonly up their dosage in order to feel the effects of the drug and eventually, their body becomes dependent on it. When Xanax abuse is in full swing and they stop using, withdrawal symptoms can set in. These symptoms include:

  • Tremors
  • Fatigue
  • Impaired coordination
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability
  • Memory problems
  • Muscular pain or stiffness
  • Hallucinations
  • Psychosis
