Benzodiazepine Abuse in Hawaii

The abuse of benzodiazepines has been on the rise in Hawaii for a while. This is shown by the prescribing rate in the state. In 2012, the rate was 19.3 prescriptions per 100 persons. This was many years ago, and the problem is still ongoing. A law was implemented in Hawaii, State Bill 505 (SB505) which limits the amount of concurrent opioid and benzodiazepine prescriptions to no more than seven consecutive days, excluding specific situations. The state also put in place a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP), which requires all those prescribing medications, including pharmacists, doctors, etc. to log all the information regarding prescriptions dispensed for their patients in a database, to help avoid overprescribing and to help those suffering from addiction get the treatment they need to be free from it.

Anyone who is concerned with a loved one's addiction or misuse of benzodiazepines may find it difficult to tell certain symptoms apart. There may be signs and symptoms because of the drug use, or these symptoms could be because of the withdrawals. Whichever the situation may be, help must be gotten right away. Some of the commonly abuse benzodiazepines include Ativan, Klonopin, Xanax, Valium, and Librium.
