How to Help a Loved One
Helping a loved one get treatment for Xanax addiction
If you have a family member or loved one who is struggling with the ongoing compulsion to abuse Xanax, you may have noticed a significant change in his or her behavior, demeanor, and overall personality. You likely have strong concerns regarding how his or her future is going to be affected if he or she does not put an end to this dangerous type of behavior, but you may be questioning how you should intervene. Consider the following:
- While it might be tempting, do not get rid of any Xanax that you may discover in your loved one’s possession. Doing so will only anger him or her and will typically result in your loved one seeking out more of the substance anyway.
- Learn about the different signs and symptoms that may be indicative of the fact that someone is abusing Xanax. Having this knowledge will help you better identify if your loved one has a problem, as well as how severe that problem may be.
- Learn about the effects that prolonged Xanax abuse can have on an individual. Having this wealth of information can better prepare you for expressing your concerns to your loved one.
- Research viable treatment and rehab centers that are designed for people who struggle with substance abuse concerns, such as an addiction to Xanax.
- Sit down with your loved one and have an open and honest conversation where you are able to express your concerns and fears regarding his or her Xanax addiction. During this conversation, be sure to allow your loved one to have time to express how he or she feels as well.
- Anticipate denial, anger, and defensiveness when first speaking with your loved one. Do not allow this negativity to deter you from fully expressing your thoughts and feelings.
- Present your loved one with your findings from the research you did on possible treatment and rehab centers specializing in Xanax addiction. Offer to assist your loved one in beginning the admissions process.
- Once your loved one has become engaged in treatment and rehab, speak with his or her treatment provider to determine how you can be an active part of the therapeutic process, as doing this can demonstrate your support for your loved one every step of the way while he or she is in treatment and rehab at a center for Xanax abuse.
