The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) compiled data on each state's prescribing rate for different drugs in 2012, and they found that in Tennessee, the prescribing rate for benzodiazepines was 61.4 prescriptions per 100 persons, which makes it the 3rd highest rate of all the United States. To help with this issue, the state implemented a prescription drug monitoring program called the Controlled Substance Monitoring Database (CSMD), which monitors all prescriptions for Schedules II-V controlled substances, to be able to identify abuse patterns and get them under control, so that those suffering from an addiction to benzodiazepines or other controlled substances can get help.

The longer someone remains on these drugs the worse the physical and psychological dependency will become. Various physical and psychological symptoms will occur when someone is abusing benzodiazepines.
