Benzodiazepine Abuse in the state of Michigan

Since 1998, hospital admissions for the misuse of benzodiazepines have tripled in the US, and these drugs have caused a great deal of harm throughout Michigan. If we look at the prescribing rate of benzodiazepines for 2012 in the state, it is very disturbing. In that year, the rate was 45.5 prescriptions of benzodiazepines per 100 persons in Michigan, which brings it to the 15th highest rank of all states. But, the state of Michigan did implement a system to help control this issue, and it's called the Michigan Automated Prescription System (MAPS). Its use is to track all prescriptions of controlled substances, more specifically Schedule II-V drugs. This tool is for dispensers and prescribers, so they can potentially spot the risk of abuse in their patients, and prevent it if possible.

The longer a person is taking benzodiazepines; they will tend to experience cognitive impairment. This means that a user will tend to forget things they previously knew and could recall and may also tend to forget how to perform basic tasks they once knew. Most benzodiazepines are prescribed for short-term as-needed use, however; many people begin to rely on these drugs. Once someone relies on taking these drugs, they will quickly develop a tolerance for them and become dependent on them, which will lead to an addiction. Commonly used benzos include Xanax, Ativan, Librium, Klonopin, and Valium.

How many Benzodiazepines does it take to overdose?

Benzodiazepines, also known as benzos, are prescription medicines used to overcome anxiety, panic attacks, and seizures. An overdose of benzos occurs when higher than the recommended dose is ingested, which leads to physical and psychological dependence on the drug.
