Abuse of Benzodiazepines in Oregon

As we've covered, benzodiazepines are highly addictive and can cause a great deal of harm, and it has been very harmful to the state of Oregon. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) put together the prescribing rates for each state, concerning specific drugs, including benzodiazepines. In 2012, it found that Oregon had a rate of 31.4 benzodiazepine prescriptions per 100 persons, which is not very high, but still quite distressing. This ranks it as the 38th highest rate of all US states. This is why the Oregon Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) was implemented. It is a database that stores all the information concerning prescriptions for Schedule II-IV controlled substances, to ensure that prescription drugs are used and prescribed appropriately.

Benzodiazepines are commonly abused because of the toxic effects they cause and their availability. Unfortunately, these types of drugs are easily purchased on the Internet and through street-level dealers. Anyone who may be abusing these drugs will tend to chronically abuse them or use them recreationally. Both circumstances are dangerous, especially if the drugs are mixed with alcohol or a central nervous system stimulant. The combinations of benzodiazepines and alcohol are responsible for overdose deaths each year across the United States. An overdose on benzodiazepines alone can still occur when large quantities of the drug are consumed. The commonly abused brand names of these drugs include Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, and Librium along with many others.
