Benzodiazepine Abuse and Addiction in Minnesota

The abuse of benzodiazepines can be especially harmful, and in the state of Minnesota, that has caused a lot of harm. In 2012, the benzodiazepine prescribing rate was 24.9 prescriptions per 100 persons, which is one of the lowest rates of all states that year but is still quite high and concerning. As well as that, the amount of overdose deaths involving benzodiazepines in the state is also extremely disturbing. In 2017, there were 92 deaths caused by overdoses that were benzodiazepine-related. To help with the issue and in the hopes of lowering the above statistics, the state of Minnesota put in place the Minnesota Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) in 2010 which tracks all prescriptions for Schedule II-V controlled substances, and it can assist prescribers and dispensers in identifying abuse of prescription drugs in their patients, and provide them with resources so they can get help.

Benzodiazepines are prescription sedatives and tranquilizers and are often prescribed to treat anxiety, insomnia, muscle relaxation, and to help alcoholics through withdrawals. The commonly prescribed benzodiazepine brand names include Valium, Klonopin, Ativan, and Librium. These types of drugs can also be purchased illegally, and unfortunately, it is very easy to access these drugs through online pharmacies.
