Benzodiazepine Abuse in the state of Kansas

Kansas has a problem with prescription drug abuse and that includes benzodiazepines. Between 2012 and 2016, there were 1334 drug poisoning deaths in Kansas residents between the ages of 15 and 54 years old. And out of these deaths, 101 were caused by benzodiazepines. Also, in 2012, the prescribing rate for Kansas was 38.9 prescriptions per 100 persons, which is an alarming number. But, to help fight benzodiazepine abuse, the Kansas Prescription Drug Monitoring Program called K-TRACS was implemented, which includes the prescription data of each patient, so providers can avoid feeding their addiction, if this is the case, or simply overprescribing.

All the chemical actions that take place while consuming benzodiazepines create a high that is very difficult for a user to give up. The progression from using the drug, to abusing it, and eventually being addicted to it can happen very quickly. A physical tolerance for benzodiazepines can happen within months, and over 40% of people who are prescribed these drugs become dependent on them. The longer someone is taking these drugs, the more often they will have to consume them, and it will become extremely difficult to get off the drugs.
