Isolation and Xanax Abuse

Isolation and Xanax AbuseXanax is the popular prescription brand name for a drug known as alprazolam. The drug is commonly prescribed for the treatment of pain attacks, personality disorders and some forms of depression. The drug’s popularity is due in part to its formulation into quick-release and extended-release forms. Classified as a benzodiazepine substance, Xanax inhibits the function of certain GABA receptors leading to a gradual depression of the central nervous system and an overall sense of well-being. Addictions to Xanax usually result from recreational or illicit use. Many take the drug recreationally to avoid unwanted feelings of pain or distress. Others use Xanax to experience high levels of stress relief or to produce feelings of euphoria. The drug has been labeled as the most frequently misused benzodiazepine substance in the United States.

Xanax Abuse and Isolation

Xanax abuse can gradually alienate users from the people around them. However, the relationship between Xanax use and isolation is a little more complex when it comes to cases in which feelings of loneliness and/or depression are part of the initial reason that an individual began using Xanax. When a person begins using a controlled substance to ward off feelings of loneliness, the feelings of loneliness and helplessness are often compounded. Additionally, a tendency toward isolation usually removes all of an individual’s support and accountability, meaning that they are far less likely to begin thinking about treatment options.
