Xanax addiction is a growing problem in the United States. With the ever increasing prescriptions being written for anxiety related issues, addiction to the prescribed medications also increases. Benzodiazepines, like Xanax, are highly addictive and doctors have noticed that prolonged use of these drugs can lead to addiction. As this becomes more apparent, some prescribers are trying to keep prescriptions low and for as short of time as possible. If you do find yourself or a loved one addicted to these it is important to get them help, as overdose is likely. Here at Recovery Ways our Master level clinicians are dedicated to providing all of our patients with the highest quality of care. We have individualized plans for each of our patients so that they get the treatment that is best for them and their addiction. We can help make overcoming the addiction and staying sober easier.
Xanax is the brand name for Alprazolam, an addictive benzodiazepine that is prescribed for panic disorders, insomnia, general anxiety disorder (GAD), and even clinical depression. It affects the central nervous system and brain promoting GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) that slows down nerve cell activity in the brain. It is 20 times stronger than Valium and is the number one prescribed psychiatric medication in the United States. Tolerance and addiction to this drug develop quickly. Some addicts can take between 10 – 40 Xanax pills in a day.

Crack is cheaper than regular cocaine and more potent. This makes it more likely for people to become addicted and overdose. Enough for one high can cost as little as $10 which makes it appealing to those who don’t have a lot of money to spend but are still looking for the high. In Utah, police have found an abundance of it being sold in downtown Salt Lake City. Some people believe that this surge in crack use is due to the population increase and people are simply bringing their habits here. Others think that the major highways through here are portals for transporting it through and to Utah. No matter the case, the rise of crack is still a problem in Utah. One of the biggest problems being the violence commonly associated with the drug. Sometimes the violence is between dealers over which area they can sell at but also among cocaine users. ------------- #recoveryways #recovery #addiction #drugaddiction #alcoholaddiction #alcoholism #sober #sobriety #soberlife #soberliving #cleanandsobor #drugfree #mentalhealth #saltlakecity #slc #utah #ogden #provo #westjordan #utah #substanceabuse #drugabuse #dualdiagnosis #cocaine #cocaineaddiction #crack #crackcocaine #crackaddiction

Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) are usually offered through a business’ human resources department or a third-party. These programs can help you get the assistance you need with substance abuse while still maintaining your employment status. EAP benefits are offered as a way to maintain the worker’s productivity by decreasing absenteeism and workplace accidents. Even if the substances are only used after work hours, they still break down the brain and body and make overall work performance plummet. EAP can offer an assessment, treatment plan, and help if a leave of absence is necessary. They help with education and training for employees, confidential employee record-keeping, drug treatment counseling, and assistance finding drug treatment services. EAP representatives are required by law to keep all information confidential. The goal of the EAP is to resolve the issue before it negatively impacts your work performance.

If you decide that you are going to participate in an inpatient program you will want to consider if the treatment center has a nutritional component for their patients. Alcohol abuse can leave the body with many problems including anemia and even brain disease from nutritional deficiencies. To make sure that you recover safely and stay healthy throughout treatment and after, the benefits of a nutritional element are limitless. Reviews of rehab programs have showed that patients from those with nutritional support were able to maintain sobriety more than those without. ----- #recoveryways #recovery #addiction #drugaddiction #alcoholaddiction #alcoholism #sober #sobriety #soberlife #soberliving #cleanandsobor #drugfree #mentalhealth #saltlakecity #slc #utah #ogden #provo #westjordan #utah #alcohol #alcoholaddiction #alcoholism #alcoholrehab #nutrition #health

Everyone loves a good movie, especially when it stars some of your favorite actors and actresses. The best movies really come down to good acting, a good plot, and an ability for both to connect to the audience. Documentaries on addiction, about real people afflicted with substance abuse issues requires no acting and an inside look. There have been many movies made over the decades about all kinds of things, including substance abuse, addiction, and even recovery. With the media’s constant portrayal of substance abuse as a norm, watching movies such as these that show the truth are good for showing the true destruction. The following movies give a look at addiction, recovery, and the destruction of addiction. To see the list visit http://www.recoveryways.com/top-10-documentaries-on-addiction/ ---

Recovery Ways offers many different types of therapies for our patients to help them understand their addiction and any co-occurring disorders, learn coping skills for sober living, and to help build support groups. This therapy is sometimes considered as experiential; meaning it is engaging in hands-on help that provides recovering addicts with the ability to process and deal with past trauma, offer a stronger sense of self, and exposure to new sober hobbies. Recreation therapy allows people to build more trust in themselves as well as others. Some of the more demanding activities can simulate real world stress.

Just because you are sober doesn’t mean you can’t have a social life. You can still go out and have fun, enjoy time with your friends, and make new ones. Being sober doesn’t mean you have to be a hermit with no life. In fact, going out and spending time with your friends and trying new activities will all aid in your recovery. You have a new take on life, your healthy and sober, it is time to enjoy your life to your full potential. The key is finding the right people to surround yourself with and sober activities that won’t inspire you to use again. Here are some ways to stay social in recovery.

Intermountain Healthcare is the largest healthcare provider in the intermountain west and well known throughout Utah. They have 22 hospitals and over 185 clinics. They have 1,500 multi-specialty doctors and caregivers and a total of 37,000 employees as of 2015. The University of Utah Health is the Mountain West’s only academic health care system and provides care to ten percent of the continental U.S. They have more than 1,000 board-certified physicians who staff four university hospitals, 12 community clinics, and several specialty clinics. They also have about 8,000 staff members according to their 2011 report to the community. It is no secret that our health care providers have an easy access to prescription substances and have been and continue to abuse them. There have even been shows about fictional doctors and nurses abusing drugs while still working with their patients such as House M.D. from 2004-2012 and Nurse Jackie from 2009-2015, but the problem is very real. www.recoveryways.com/utah-healthcare-providers-and-addiction/

You will want to find an alcohol addiction rehab that teaches some type of life skills program, to help you deal with the stress and problems of everyday life after treatment. There is no way to avoid stressors or temptations after treatment, the best way to maintain sobriety is by having the skills to recognize the situation and find something other than alcohol to solve the problem. The life skills program will also help reteach basic responsible thinking, morals, problem solving, and healthy ways to deal with emotions that may have been compromised during times of alcohol abuse. ----- #recoveryways #recovery #addiction #drugaddiction #alcoholaddiction #alcoholism #sober #sobriety #soberlife #soberliving #cleanandsobor #drugfree #mentalhealth #saltlakecity #slc #utah #ogden #provo #westjordan #utah #alcohol #alcoholaddiction #alcoholrehab

@Regrann from @recoverywaysutah: Whether you are a mother or father, watching your child become an addict is one of the most difficult things. Here is your baby, someone you nurtured and cared for their entire life, someone you have an unconditional love for, someone who you tried to give the world and anything their heart desired, someone who was sick and you cared for, someone who you’d give anything just so they didn’t feel pain. Now here you are, watching them suffer with addiction. It is something no parent wants for their child, something that strikes fear in all parents, something so difficult to understand.
