Benzodiazepine Abuse in the state of Ohio

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) put together the prescribing rates by drug type and for each state. In 2012, in Ohio, the prescribing rate was 41.3 prescriptions for benzodiazepines per 100 persons, which brings it to the rank of 20th highest rate of all states. This is why a prescription monitoring program was necessary for Ohio State. It's called the Ohio Automated Rx Reporting System (OARRS), which is used by pharmacists or prescribers to find the prescription history information on their patients, so they can recognize abnormal prescribing and provide help to their patients who have issues with addiction or abuse of prescription drugs.

Benzodiazepines are a commonly prescribed drug within the United States, and there are over 2000 different types of benzodiazepines that exist, however; there are only 15 that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Some of the common brand names for benzodiazepines include Ativan, and Xanax, which are short-acting; Valium and Librium, which are long-acting, and Klonopin and Halcion. Benzodiazepines are commonly abused and are easy to purchase illegally. Addicts will often use these drugs with alcohol or central nervous system stimulants. When doing this, the user is putting themselves at great risk of overdose. The combinations of benzodiazepines and alcohol are responsible for countless overdose deaths throughout the United States.
