Abuse of Benzodiazepines in Nevada

The abuse of benzodiazepines in the state of Nevada is a concerning issue, just as it is in the rest of the United States. This can be seen in the data collected by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which found that in 2012, the prescribing rate for Nevada was at 37.5 benzodiazepines prescriptions per 100 persons. This puts the state as the 25th highest rate of all states. But, to help combat this issue, the state of Nevada implemented the Nevada Prescription Monitoring Program (NV PMP), which contains all the information concerning controlled substance prescriptions. It is used as a tool for dispensers and prescribers, so that have the whole prescription history of their patients, to ensure they prescribe these medications safely and are not unknowingly enabling someone's addiction.

The chronic or long-term use of benzodiazepines will cause anorexia, insomnia, anxiety, headaches, and cognitive problems. Commonly prescribed benzodiazepines include Ativan, Xanax, Librium, and Valium. The longer someone is taking these drugs; they are increasing the tolerance they will have for them. The development of a tolerance for benzodiazepine will place the addicts at risk of an overdose, as they may attempt to use more than what their body can handle. The combination of benzodiazepines and alcohol has been responsible for countless overdose deaths all throughout the United States.
