Benzodiazepine Abuse in New Hampshire

Abusing benzodiazepines can cause a great deal of harm within a community, and the state of New Hampshire definitely has a problem with the abuse of benzos. It had the 21st highest prescribing rate for 2012, with 41.2 benzodiazepine prescriptions per 100 persons, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). But, there was a system put in place to help control this issue. It is called the New Hampshire Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (NH PDMP). This program collects information on the drug prescribed, who it was prescribed to, who wrote the prescription, and what pharmacy dispensed it. They implemented this to identify the misuse of these substances and avoid drug interactions.

Benzodiazepines are just as addictive as opioids, and will, in fact, cause the same types of physical tolerances that an opioid will develop. The difficulty involved with stopping these drugs is very real, and many addicts struggle with the withdrawal pains, especially if they are consuming large amounts of the drug. Some of the commonly abused benzodiazepines include Xanax, Valium, Librium, Ativan, and Klonopin. Unfortunately, these drugs can be easily purchased illegally, and regularly abused with alcohol and central nervous system stimulants.
