from a Pain Reliever?


Xanax. How It Starts?

Xanax is a benzodiazepine, prescribed to treat panic and anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder (or GAD). In fact, Xanax is very effective at treating these–and it rapidly slows and relaxes the mind, alleviating anxiety and panic nearly instantly. Largely for that reason, Xanax is very often prescribed to sufferers of anxiety–in fact, it’s one of the most prescribed medications in America.

Unfortunately, Xanax is also one of the most commonly abused prescription pills. The feelings of calmness and pleasure lead many to use the drug recreationally, which can quickly develop into a dangerous Xanax addiction. People take it at parties, sometimes with alcohol or other drugs–and the effects are exacerbated. Some Xanax patients find themselves taking more and more of the drug to achieve the same effects, which can lead to psychological dependency–and the dissipation of life as you know it.

The first step is diagnosis.

The Path to Recovery

If you’re suffering from substance abuse as well as an underlying mental disorder, some of this probably already sounds familiar. Virtually everyone dealing with addiction has some kind of underlying problem that contributes to their relationship with substances and addiction. It might be something less serious, such as work-related stress, or it could be a serious problem such as clinical depression, which requires treatment in the form of therapy, medication, or both.

So how do you know if your struggles with substance abuse, or the struggles of your loved one, are linked to another disorder? Although you can review your own symptoms to see whether they match up with a common diagnosis, trying to diagnose yourself with information gathered from the Internet or from friends is usually not ideal. Ultimately, only a professional can properly diagnose you to determine whether you’re suffering from a disorder in addition to your struggle with addiction.

One of the primary reasons that mental disorders and substance abuse so often go hand-in-hand is that drugs and alcohol can provide an escape from the pressures of mental health problems. Self-medicating is surprisingly common: you’re not alone. But unlike real, effective, long-term solutions, such as medication and detoxification in a treatment center, drugs and alcohol won’t be amount to effective treatment.

Understanding your dual diagnosis is especially important so that you can determine the course of your recovery. Dealing with multiple diagnoses may make your situation appear dire or even hopeless, but it never is–help is available, and recovery is possible.

Know that it’s absolutely critical that you or your loved one provide all available information with any doctors or therapists who’ll be assisting in your treatment and recovery. If only one of your diagnoses is treated, but the other is left unresolved, it’s much less likely that your recovery will be lasting and complete. Your dual diagnoses (or co-occurring disorders) are not two separate problems that can be dealt with one at a time: they’re inextricably linked, and working with one will help you to solve the other.
