Many people get Xanax without a prescription from family members, friends or illegally off the streets. But you can get addicted to Xanax even if you take it as prescribed.

If you are taking your Xanax prescription medication as directed, your body may still become dependent on it.

Your doctor may increase your dosage level to accommodate the natural tolerance that develops. This increase in dosage can lead to Xanax addiction over time. If you are addicted, immediately seek treatment. Call Recovery Connection today at 800-993-3869. We’re here to help find you options for Xanax detox at drug detox centers that fit your needs.

Safely Breaking Free From Xanax Addiction

I was at my wits’ end when I called Recovery Connection. I wish I could remember the name of the guy I spoke with. He saved my life. He is also in recovery and knew exactly how I felt. Even when I was on the fence on when, where or even if I should go, he walked me through it.
