Connecticut's Benzodiazepine Abuse Problem

Connecticut has problems with drug abuse in general, and that includes benzodiazepines. The prescribing rate is pretty high at 46.2 prescriptions per 100 persons, according to a report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). But, the state also has a Prescription Monitoring Program, to collect data for prescriptions of Schedule II to V controlled substances, by using a database called the Connecticut Prescription Monitoring and Reporting System (CPMRS). The purpose of the CPMRS is to give a full picture of an individual's use of controlled substances to their healthcare provider or pharmacist.

Benzodiazepine medications include Xanax, Valium, Ativan, Librium, and Klonopin. These types of drugs are classified as prescription sedatives or tranquilizers and impact the central nervous system. Benzodiazepines are commonly prescribed for legitimate physical and mental health reasons, but the drugs are very addictive. When these types of drugs are abused or misused in any way, they can cause severe physical or psychological dependency and or addiction. Benzodiazepines are prescribed throughout the United States, and people become addicted to these substances regularly.
