Personalised recovery programmes to help you grow beyond addiction at our purpose-built treatment centre.
Xanax is the brand name of alprazolam, a highly addictive prescription drug of the Benzodiazepine family. Xanax is designed to boost chemicals in your brain to reduce feelings of fear, agitation and anxiety and prompt feelings of relaxation. This ‘high’ feeling is often what causes people to get hooked on Xanax.
With Xanax often being prescribed, many people who become addicted do so unintentionally. Building a tolerance and dependency from simply following their doctors orders.
If you think you’ve developed a dependency or addiction to Xanax, we understand what you’re going through and just how difficult it can be to kick the habit. Especially if you’ve been dependent on it for a long time.
Day-to-day you might feel drowsy, tired and weak; have frequent headaches, sleep for longer and not want to do anything with your day. And when you’re not using, these symptoms can get a whole lot worse, leading to severe insomnia, vomiting and even tremors in some cases.
Prolonged use of Xanax can have some serious side effects, many of which are permanent and irreversible. That’s why if you think you’ve developed an addiction to Xanax – it’s important you get the right help quickly.
At our purpose-built treatment centre in the heart of Cheshire, we’ve got everything you need to safely detox and grow beyond your addiction. Designed as a safe space to relax the body and mind, you’ll leave with the mindset and tools needed to live a life free from addiction with the support of our experienced team.
If you think you’re suffering from Xanax addiction or know someone who is, contact our team today and learn more about the different programmes we offer here at Delamere.
Spotting signs of Xanax addiction isn’t always easy as they vary from person to person. However, it’s common for day-to-day activities to become difficult and responsibilities such as work, family or school may start to get ignored.
Here are some signs and symptoms to look out for in yourself and others:
Manic type moods
Lack of motivation
Experiencing withdrawal symptoms
Loss of interest in normal activities
Strong cravings for the drug
Learn more about the symptoms of prescription drug addiction.
Xanax abuse can have some serious psychological effects and can cause the very thing they were prescribed to remedy to come back even stronger. Things like anxiety, panic attacks, paranoia, mania, and depression are among the most common effects.
People may also experience delirium and psychosis which often require a trip to the emergency room and/or medical detox, and in some cases – these effects are irreversible.
Other psychological effects include:
Decreased motor function
Slower at processing information
Frequent Xanax use may also lead to some physical effects, such as tremors, nausea, vomiting and headaches. Especially during withdrawal.
Other physical effects include:
Slower reaction time
Loss of sex drive

There’s no one-size-fits-all here. We listen, learn and tailor our programmes to meet your personal needs, whatever they may be. Your journey to recovery is yours, so we design our programmes with you in mind.
Nature and creativity often bring out the best in people, especially after a difficult period in their life. We offer equine and art therapy, fire ceremonies, nature walks and more to help you relax, reflect and see the world in a new way.
If someone you know is showing signs of Xanax addiction, it’s important they get help.
