Abuse of Benzodiazepines in New Mexico

In 2012, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) collected data on the prescribing rates of all the states, and New Mexico had the 37th highest rate with 31.5 prescriptions for benzodiazepines per 100 persons. It is still a concerning statistic, even though it's in the lower rates, and it does not mean that benzodiazepine abuse is not an issue in the state of New Mexico. But, there was a system put in place to help control this problem as much as possible, and it's called the New Mexico Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP). It's a database that contains all the information on medication prescriptions, to help identify abuse and be able to help those who have an addiction problem.

Benzodiazepine is a prescription sedative and tranquilizer, and some of the common brand-name medications include Ativan, Xanax, Librium, Klonopin, Valium, and Restoril. Typically, these types of drugs are prescribed to treat certain physical and mental health problems such as muscle relaxation, anxiety, insomnia, and alcohol withdrawal. However, it is well known that benzodiazepines will cause addiction and dependency very easily. Severe physical and psychological dependencies can happen with the misuse or pro-long usage of benzodiazepines.
