Substance Abuse Treatment

The thing to remember is that that the way out of opiate addiction is through professionally supervised rehab. Those who choose to ignore it do so at their own risk.

If you suffer from painkiller dependence or know someone who does, do not waste another moment and seek professional help right away.

Breaking free of prescription pill abuse takes more than just will power. By the time one realizes the nature of his or her addiction, the brain becomes so used to the drug it is very painful to get off it. Mental and physical discomfort may persist for weeks after withdrawal from the drug. An addict may suffer from nausea, body aches, diarrhea and enlarged pupils after withdrawal.

Among the medications to ease the withdrawal process, methadone is known to be the best, most effective treatment for narcotic addiction. Taking the right amount of methadone prevents withdrawal symptoms and eases drug craving but it does not provide the ecstasy. The dosage can be slowly reduced releasing the addict from physical dependence and the pain of withdrawal.

Signs of Xanax Addiction

Multiple signs indicate an increased dependency on Xanax. Some of these could be both physical and psychological.

  • Violent behavior
  • Fatigue
  • Memory loss
  • Anxiety
  • Light headedness
  • Insomnia
  • Shortness of breath

Xanax abuse typically leads to strained relations at work and home, withdrawal from society, and sudden weight loss. Most people have concentration problems and lack of confidence after prolonged use. If you see these signs in a friend or a family member, you should make sure they are not abusing Xanax.

Anti Anxiety Medications and Sedatives

Anti-anxiety medications such as Xanax and Valium are the most commonly abused in Tampa whereas hypnotic drugs such as Ambien also fall into that bracket. Ambien is typically prescribed for sleep disorders or anxiety.

Symptoms associated with anti anxiety drug abuse include:

  • Confusion
  • Unsteady walk
  • Rapid movement of eyes
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
