Benzodiazepine Abuse in the state of Idaho

The problem of benzodiazepine abuse is a concerning problem in Idaho, and it has been for some time. In 2018, there were 28 deaths that involved benzodiazepines. In 2017, 101 000 people in Idaho had long-term opioid prescriptions, and out of these, 25 000 had benzodiazepines or other depressants prescribed to them as well. Since both of those are depressants, it makes overdose a bigger risk. So, we've obviously seen that benzodiazepines are causing a lot of harm in the state of Idaho. But, there was a program implemented called the Idaho Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP), which is an electronic database that has all the data regarding the dispensing of controlled substances in the state of Idaho. This helps reduce the misuse of prescription drugs by overprescribing and encourages those who need help for their addiction get it.

Benzodiazepine is classified as a Schedule IV drug under the Controlled Substances acts, and is a commonly prescribed medication. There are many different brand names such as Xanax, Klonopin, Valium, and Ativan, and are often prescribed to treat anxiety or insomnia. Benzodiazepines are prescription sedatives or tranquilizers and are extremely addictive when abused. Most addicts will start with a prescription, and when the user takes more than directed, a dependency can form quite quickly.
