Are you or someone you love considering a Xanax detox? Xanax is a potent and habit-forming benzodiazepine — a class of central nervous system depressants that are Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved for several conditions including anxiety disorders, panic disorder, insomnia and the treatment of more severe symptoms associated with alcohol withdrawal. Despite its propensity to be physically and psychologically addictive, Xanax is among the most frequently prescribed medications in the United States. According to the 2020 National Health Statistics Report, the percentage of American adults with a benzodiazepine prescription increased from 4.1 percent in 1996 to 5.6 percent in 2013. The same report suggests that the number of overdose-related deaths directly linked to a benzodiazepine like Xanax increased from 0.58 per 100,000 adults in the year 1996 to 3.07 per 100,000 adults in 2010. In 2003 there were roughly 27.6 million American adults with a prescription for one or more benzodiazepines — by 2015, this number had jumped to 62.6 million.
