An addiction or dependency to Benzos can begin simply as with a prescription, and it can progress into a dangerous addiction. Because benzodiazepines are very common prescriptions in Arizona, a patient must be made aware of how addictive they can be. Many of the inpatient and outpatient drug rehabilitation centers within the state of Arizona will help addicts who are struggling with an addiction to these drugs. The detox process is the most important because withdrawal symptoms can be dangerous when someone is taking a large amount of the drug frequently.

Benzodiazepine Abuse in Arizona

The abuse of benzodiazepines in the state of Arizona is an issue that we can't avoid. There was a report made by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which found that in 2012, there were 34.3 prescriptions for benzodiazepines per 100 persons in Arizona. All these people who are prescribed these medications are at-risk of developing an addiction, because as we've covered, benzodiazepines can be highly addictive if they are misused. The state of Arizona has a Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP), which gives access to information on controlled substance dispensing for patients so that they can review it.

Benzodiazepine (Diazepam) is a general classification for drugs known as sedatives or prescription tranquilizers. Some of the common brand names include Xanax, Librium, Ativan, Valium, Halcion, and Restoril. These types of drugs are commonly prescribed to treat problems such as insomnia, seizures, anxiety, and for alcohol withdrawals. When used incorrectly, they can be quite addictive and cause a lot of harm to an individual; confusion, trembling, dizziness, grogginess, etc. Unfortunately, these drugs are highly addictive, and cause serious physical dependencies.
