What are Xanax Bars?

Xanax bars are the most common term used when referring to alprazolam 2 milligram tablets. Alprazolam is a benzodiazepine medication used to treat severe anxiety and panic disorder, and is commonly abused for its sedative effects. Xanax bars, also referred to as planks, school buses, ladders, or bars, are extremely habit forming, and are the result of overdoses nationwide. 

Xanax is a psychoactive chemical that produces a calming effect, and is abused for the sedation and relaxed high one gets from abuse. It relaxes the central nervous system, which is the main reason that it is prescribed by medical providers. Xanax is the number one prescribed medication by psychiatrists in the united states, and seventy percent of teens with xanax addiction get the pills from their parent’s medicine cabinet. A tolerance to xanax is characterized by the need to take more than originally needed to produce the same effect, and, like opioids, a tolerance to xanax builds very quickly, so addiction to xanax among users is very common. If someone with a xanax addiction stops taking the drug suddenly, they will experience what is called withdrawal symptoms, which are characterized by anxiety, restlessness, tremors, and insomnia. In severe cases of xanax addiction, these withdrawal symptoms can be so bad that they result in seizures or even death, so it is very important to be aware of this and seek help immediately if you have an addiction to xanax and are experiencing withdrawal symptoms. 

   If you are addicted to xanax, there are many options for your treatment. The best course of action to take is to find a program that utilizes the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous as the solution for drug addiction and alcoholism. Through a program such as this, you may find that you discover more about yourself than you ever have, and uncover the real reasons the drive you to use xanax beyond the prescribed amount. It may take some soul searching, but it is important to be aware of the very grave fact that, if you are an addict, and you don’t find a solution, addiction to a drug such as xanax will ultimately lead to incarceration, psychiatric commitment, or death. Such is the nature of addiction. 

A real program rooted in an understanding of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous will lead you to a life of freedom from xanax addiction, and will also serve to fix every other problem that you may be experiencing in your life. This is a spiritual way of living, and though that may seem like a daunting prospect, relax. It’s a simple program of action that is defined by the underlying principles of unity, service and recovery, and is the home to millions of good men and women around the world. Countless testimonies will tell the tale of how they were hopeless in their addiction until they found the program of Alcoholics Anonymous, and were lifted up to a higher state of living. The answer lies in the Big Book.
