Yes an officer can arrest for DUI without reading you Miranda. Miranda applies when you are in custody and being interrogated. So if you were not read Miranda then possibly any answers you gave in response to questioning may be suppressed. However, don't count on the whole case being tossed. Consult with an experienced DUI lawyer quickly.
It sounds like he may have called for a "DUI" officer who may have had more training and experience. DUI is a misdemeanor and the possession of Xanax is a felony. Do you have a prescription for the xanax? If so , that charge may go away. Is it a DUI that is alcohol and/or drugs?
