Benzodiazepine Abuse in the state of Maryland

The abuse of benzodiazepines is very prevalent in the state of Maryland. Between 2007 and 2014, benzodiazepines were involved in an estimate of over 500 deaths in Maryland. It has a prescribing rate of 29.9 prescriptions for benzodiazepines per 100 persons and although this rate is in the lower numbers, it is still a cause for concern. But, to help fight this issue head-on, the Department of Health of the state of Maryland has put in place the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP). It collects data on the dispensing of controlled substances. This was implemented to avoid prescribers and dispensers providing inappropriate prescribing of these drugs.

When benzodiazepines are prescribed, it is usually for a physical or mental health problem, such as anxiety, insomnia, muscle relaxation, and to treat alcohol withdrawal. Unfortunately, even on small amounts of benzos, the withdrawal symptoms can still tend to be difficult. It was estimated that little over 40% of the prescriptions for benzodiazepines end up causing a physical and psychological dependency. Commonly prescribed benzodiazepines include Valium, Klonopin, Ativan, Librium, and Xanax.
