Benzodiazepine Abuse and Addiction in Nebraska

In the state of Nebraska, there is a definite problem with the abuse of benzodiazepines. In 2012, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) determined the prescribing rates of all US states for different prescription drugs. Just in 2012, Nebraska's rate was at 35 benzodiazepine prescriptions per 100 persons. It is in the lower range, but it is still very high and concerning. To help with this issue, the state of Nebraska has a Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP). It collects all the data from prescriptions of controlled substances made by dispensers or prescribers and can be reviewed to prevent or identify the misuse of prescription drugs.

Some of the physical and psychological symptoms associated with the use of benzodiazepines include physical weakness, slurred speech, confusion, blurred vision, dizziness, drowsiness, and the possibility of coma or death. Benzodiazepines are prescription tranquilizers or sedatives and are often prescribed for a variety of physical and mental health reasons. However, benzodiazepines are regularly abused and can be purchased very easily illegally through online pharmacies and street-level dealers. Common brand names include Xanax, Valium, Librium, Ativan, and Klonopin.
