Program for Anti-Anxiety Medications
The clinic offers a non-pharmaceutical approach for dependency issues to anxiety medications such as Xanax and Ativan.
Our rehab program helps patients decrease prescription dependency using multiple holistic treatments to help avoid the discomfort that can accompany withdrawal. This option supports your health goals without side effects and dependency risks of staying on the medication or changing to another prescription medication.
Description of Treatment
The rehab program combines personalized Amino Acid and Nutritional Therapy, Chiropractic Care, and Auriculotherapy. The same modalities are used for the addiction and dependency programs. For the medication dependency program the patient is withdrawn for the medication at a slower rate than a 28-day in-patient program. This allows the nervous system to better adapt to the decrease of medication of these very powerful drugs.
A clinical study for this approach to the recovery or withdrawal process was done at the University of Florida School of Medicine. All the patients receiving this treatment plan completed the program. The national average is 72% of completing a program, where the results with this approach was 100%.
The research reveals that this program got extraordinary results with decreasing anxiety and depression during the recovery or withdrawal process. The Beckís Depression Inventory revealed that chiropractic care got depression levels below a score of 5 in 4 weeks, something which usually took one year of medication and psychotherapy to achieve the same result. The Spielberger State Anxiety Test revealed that chiropractic care got anxiety levels below a score of 35 in 3 weeks. Normally it took six months of medication and psychotherapy to achieve the same result.
Auriculotherapy is used in the program and has a long history for the treatment of addiction going back to the New York City heroin clinics. This treatment is being used in drug courts across the country to help decrease cravings for the substance and increase a state of relaxation.
Health Resolutions Treatment Center has helped many patients struggling with the recovery or withdrawal process. An example of this is a patient that had come in for help with a methamphetamine addiction. Normally the moods swings with that addiction lasts for 3 to 4 weeks and can be moderate to severe. With this process of Chiropractic Care, Auriculotherapy and a specific Nutritional Therapy program related to his imbalances, the patientís moods leveled off in 1 week.
Sign up for more information about the dependency program. The information provided is an article published in the Alternative Medicine Digest about this treatment process. The article talks about a 28-day program. With the dependency program, the treatment center will be using the same treatments to support the nervous system while withdrawing from the medication at a rate slower than a 28-day in-patient program. This approach replaces an expensive in-patient program and allows the nervous system to adapt to the withdrawal process. This allows for the possibility for complete withdrawal from the medication without the need of changing to another prescription medication.
