Xanax also known as Alprazolam (2 mg) imprinted with gg249 is a drug that may be taken for legitimate purposes but it is also a widely abused drug. Benzodiazepine-type drugs like Xanax have long been known to have the potential to be addictive and must be taken with care so are often prescribed only for short periods. Sometimes, despite one’s best efforts to take that care, one can become addicted to Xanax.
Xanax can be prescribed as a prescription drug to reduce anxiety, to cause them not to worry about their problems, or to help them sleep. When abused, Xanax is often taken as part of a “cocktail” of drugs, for example, with Vicodin (hydrocodone, an opioid pain reliever) and Soma (a muscle relaxant). The combination can be fatal and is certainly addictive.
Since Xanax is such a widely abused drug, many people may become addicted to Xanax after using it recreationally and then find that they cannot quit taking the drug without having problems with withdrawal symptoms.
Treatment for Xanax addiction is what makes it possible for both legitimate users and recreational users to leave this drug behind for good.
While the idea of treatment for Xanax addiction might cause some people to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed, the truth is that staying addicted to Xanax is far more problematic than a treatment program would ever be.
When you decide it is time to stop taking Xanax or when you are trying to help a loved one stop, it’s time to find treatment for Xanax addiction. Without treatment, it can be very difficult to stop by oneself, especially if Xanax was being taken in conjunction with other drugs. It is critical not just to get off the drugs but to learn how to stay sober permanently. This can much more reliably be done with the support of the team at a good drug addiction treatment center. And getting off Xanax and any other drugs can be a life or death matter due to the threat of overdose or the combined effects of a “cocktail” of drugs.
The counselors talk to families like yours every day. It’s important to have some guidance at a time like this when crucial decisions are being made.

The process can be much faster when you have someone who understands the patterns of addiction, who know the pitfalls of helping the addicted person get started on a path to sobriety, and who can tell you what type of drug rehab program might best fit your situation.
