Are you searching for info on how to wean off Xanax properly? Looking for a Xanax withdrawal program that really works?
Here are just a few of the many Xanax withdrawal success stories from people who have used Point of Return's Xanax withdrawal program to taper off Xanax.
I could write you a timeline depicting the grueling details of my 4 year experience with Benzodiazepines, but truth is my story is probably a lot like yours. Just like you my anxiety crippled me. Just like you I played fool to a physician I put my trust into. And like you, I too was given a daily "therapeutic dosage" of Benzo's, SSRI's, and a cocktail of other behavioral meds to help with the side affects that came with the first pill. I too hit a tolerance wall every couple of months. My 23yr old body ached…I felt sick physically and mentally. I was a shell of the girl I once was. Like one of those hollow, half eaten, chocolate rabbits. My debilitated state led me to believe suicide was the only escape from my daily agony. And after 2 cold turkey quits, followed by many failed attempts to wean off Xanax with my physician, something had to change. With nothing left to lose, I did my research...
I'll never forget my first call to Point of Return. Withdrawing, I dialed guardedly and to my ears answered the most soothing, understanding voice…Alesandra Rain. Like many phone calls to come, she spent quite sometime with me on the phone that day, listening to my story and offering sound advice. Relieved wasn't the word, it brought tears to my eyes to finally speak to someone so knowledgeable who actually knew what I was going through and why. I remember her saying she could hear the "grit" in my voice, and coming from a place of experience she so knowingly said "it gets better". It wasn't until I read Deeds Of Trust that I fully understood how she knew. She had recognized the strength in my voice when I thought I had none.
Coming into Point of Return I thought I was the exception. My panic attacks so frequent and debilitating, could I really taper successfully off the high mg doses of Xanax? Right away Alesandra and Andrea helped my doctor and I find a compounding pharmacy, and within 2 weeks of taking my nutrients, my body went from weak and needy to calmed and pacified. When I feel anxious, I know I can depend on Relax to calm my nerves.
You really get what you put in. I cleaned up my old dirty habits for new and received great nutritional advice from Terry on how to implement whole foods into my diet. Andrea always encouraged me to keep at my dreams and her quirky spirit always had me laughing. To this day we remain great friends. The three of them plus the amazing nutrients I take, have created a life change in me that I couldn't imagine being without. The amazing lengths they have went to for me is something I could never repay them for. They were with me every step of the way shedding light on such a dark period of my life.
Point of Return isn't just a program, it's a lifestyle. So you see, if you are going through a dark period just like I have you're one step closer to your success story.
Jessica B. (Virginia) – Xanax Withdrawal Success Story
In the summer of 2010, I was diagnosed with stress disorder due to my job. My doctor prescribed an anti-depressant telling me that was how this disorder was treated. The anti-depressant caused me to have anxiety, headaches, and a major case of insomnia. I went to two other doctors seeking help. One doctor put me on Ambien, and the other doctor put me on Xanax. I took each of these drugs each night, and at first I slept very well.
After being on these pills for only a couple of months I noticed my sleep had become bad again, and I was lucky if I got 3 to 4 hours, instead of the 7 to 8 I got at first. It appeared I had reached what is referred to as “Tolerance” to both Ambien and Xanax, and was having “Rebound” effects and the “Withdrawal” symptoms started to affect me greatly, and I was miserable.
One night as my Brother and I prayed, we were led to look up these drugs on the internet so we could better understand what was happening to me. We were absolutely shocked to see what all of the horrible “Side Effects” of these drugs were, and I had a lot of them. My doctors had assured me these drugs were ok to use and I would not become addicted to them. Later, my doctors even told me I could just stop taking these drugs “Cold Turkey” without any problems. Thankfully I did not do this, but I did at first cut back to half of both drugs within less than one week. This was a mistake, as the “Withdrawal Symptoms” became almost unbearable.
I looked on the internet for help, and that’s when I found the website for Point of Return. I enrolled in their program and started the supplements right away. Alesandra Rain at Point of Return contacted me, and helped me to start my “Tapering” process once I stabilized from my previous cuts. She helped guide me through a very rough time of weaning myself off of 2 very addictive and very powerful drugs at the same time. I finished the program in approximately 7 weeks, which is considered pretty fast. I felt I had to go fast due to the “Tolerance” issues and the already present “Withdrawal” symptoms. Between my faith in God and the help of Alesandra at Point of Return, I have been Ambien and Xanax free since December 30th of 2010.
I am continuing to improve daily, and am confident I will be back to 100% soon.

I just wanted to let you know that I'm doing well - thanks to your program. I don't think I could have ever done it alone. I'm more than 2 weeks tapered off of all meds. The supplements from the Point of Return program were so helpful that I needed less and less of the meds faster than I thought possible. I'm still doing a little withdrawal, but it's a whole new world. I'm so surprised at how much easier it is to sleep and how much more control I have over myself. All the things I took the meds for - I didn't get until I was off of them - how ironic. I'm working with a great nutritionalist and your program really gave me a starting point in a healthy recovery. Please thank everyone in the office for me. I am deeply grateful to you all.
This is an excellent program and I recommend it all the time. Thank You.
