Benzodiazepine Abuse in Colorado

In Colorado, benzodiazepines are an issue that can't be overlooked. A report put together by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that in 2012 in Colorado, the prescription rate was 28 benzodiazepine prescriptions per 100 persons, which is not that high of a number, but still concerning. Benzodiazepine abuse or addiction is a problem that can be effectively treated within an inpatient or outpatient drug treatment program. These types of addictions are serious, and someone can become dependent or addicted to these drugs from a prescription. Benzodiazepines are commonly prescribed in Colorado. Some of the brand names include Niravam, Ativan, Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, and Librium. If benzodiazepines are misused, they can become quite addictive, and if they are being used with other medications, the buildup of all these medications can be dangerous. An addiction can happen by not taking a prescription as directed by a healthcare professional. Benzodiazepines are often abused with central nervous system stimulants and alcohol, which has been the cause of countless overdose deaths in Colorado.
