What is Alcohol Addiction?

A multi-faceted challenge
Alcohol addiction, also known as alcoholism, is a disorder that can impact people from all walks of life. Experts have tried to pinpoint factors such as race, sex, genetics, or socioeconomic status that may predispose someone to alcoholism, but there’s no single cause. Genetic, behavioral, and psychological factors can all contribute to someone developing this disorder.

Getting off Xanax takes time and is never recommended to go “cold turkey.” Medical supervision is vital to ensuring that someone comes off the drug safely and has the least amount of effects. It means slowly reducing the drug until it’s entirely out of an individual’s system.

Signs of Overdose

You can overdose on Xanax, which can result in several effects that cause severe health problems, including coma. Some other symptoms of overdose include:
Getting immediate treatment for an overdose can save a life, so it’s crucial if you or someone you know overdoses, to get to a hospital asap.

Xanax Addiction Treatment

Overcoming an addiction to Xanax takes customized treatment that includes detoxification; this ensures the drug is out of the person’s system, and the brain can go back to its pre-addicted state. Although someone with an addiction to any drug can relapse, so it’s integral, those risks are addressed in treatment. There are many ways in which a person can get treatment for Xanax addiction, so contacting a recovery center should be the first step.
