Research shows that nearly half of all people who take benzodiazepines including Xanax will become addicted to them.

The best first step? Contacting a professional, free 24-hour Xanax hotline like the one we offer in Colorado. Our Xanax hotline is based locally in Palmer Lake, Colorado, offering the best level of service and localized attention possible.
We can help answer your questions and talk through any concerns.
Xanax abuse and addiction are more common than you might think, and there are tens of millions of prescriptions written for this drug each year, and others like it. It’s one of the most commonly prescribed and also abused psychiatric drugs in the U.S., and in the medical sense, it’s prescribed to treat conditions like anxiety and panic disorders.
As with other benzodiazepines, Xanax depresses the activity of the central nervous system, and it can cause a sense of relaxation and in some cases a feeling of being high. Unfortunately, while Xanax does have some therapeutic benefits, it is also addictive and many people who take it daily for more than six weeks will become addicted.
Some of the signs of Xanax abuse and addiction can include feeling like you need to take higher doses of the medicine or take it more often than prescribed. Trying to get Xanax without a prescription or experiencing withdrawal symptoms are other potential signs of a problem.
If you recognize these symptoms in yourself or someone else, what can you do?

What Is a Colorado Xanax Hotline?
You may be wondering what a Xanax hotline is, or whether or not a 24-hour helpline could be valuable to you.
First, our Xanax helpline is free and available 24 hours a day, but it’s also operated by a team of addiction professionals who specialize in treating addiction to Xanax. Xanax is a unique drug addiction because it very commonly occurs in people who have an underlying mental health issue. For example, someone may have started taking Xanax to treat a legitimate anxiety disorder, and now they also have an addiction disorder.
This is important because you need to talk with an addiction professional who can ask the right questions and determine what underlying mental issues might exist in the caller. These are the types of factors that determine the treatment recommendations made during a call to a free helpline.
Along with asking questions about the nature of the addiction and the potential for mental disorders, calling a Xanax helpline is a unique situation because an addiction to this drug often occurs along with the use of other substances simultaneously. A polydrug addiction as an example means that someone might typically combine Xanax and alcohol or Xanax and opioids. This requires a distinctive treatment approach.
The following are some reasons you might need to contact our Palmer Lake 24-hour hotline specifically for Xanax abuse and addiction:
- You may yourself have a problem with Xanax and if you feel ready to get help, calling our free hotline could be the first step you take toward recovery and living a fulfilling life without Xanax and other substances.
- People frequently call our Xanax hotline simply to learn more about addiction. You may know someone who is struggling with Xanax as an example, and you might want to be prepared before confronting them about their addiction.
- Another reason to call our free, 24-hour hotline is to find out more information about rehab in general. Not every treatment program is the same, and not every program option is right for every person. You can learn about what it’s like in rehab and get answers to questions including how to pay for rehab and whether or not insurance covers the cost of rehab.
When you contact our Xanax hotline, you will get non-judgmental and factual information that could ultimately change your life or the life of your loved one.
It’s important to remember a few things if you’re considering making a call to our Colorado Xanax hotline. First, it is possible to recover from addiction. Countless people have and have gone on to live thriving lives. It’s never too late to receive treatment for a Xanax addiction.
It’s also important to realize that there always has to be a first step taken with any addiction. You can’t ever get on the path toward recovery without taking that very first step, and for many people, that’s calling our Xanax hotline.
