Xanax Drug Abuse Treatment Detox Help and Information
Malibu Horizon,which could be prescribed by our consulting physician, carefully monitors a client off of Xanax. Dr Mohammad is an expert at drug detox, especially benzodiazepines, opiates and alcohol. Once safely detox, an individualized treatment plan is created including the right combination of both CBT and MET therapy. Xanax is classified as a benzodiazepine. Benzodiazepines are potent CNS depressants and therefore require a closely monitored, detoxification process. Xanax detox must be handled by a doctor who is an expert at detoxification, specifically trained in benzodiazepines. It works by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain. Xanax can be habit-forming. Do not take a larger dose, take it more often, or take it for a longer period of time than prescribed by your doctor. Addiction is defined as when a person compulsively seeks out the drug and abuses it despite its known harmful consequences.
