What are benzodiazepines?

Sometimes referred to as Benzos, benzodiazepine is a psychoactive drug that is used to treat anxiety, insomnia, nervousness, and panic disorders. Taken for a long period in excess quantities can lead to addiction and thus, the withdrawal can become a challenge. The addictive nature of benzodiazepines is very similar to opioids, and in fact; a user will develop much of the same type of tolerance to these drugs as they would for opioids. Benzodiazepines are a Schedule IV drug under the Controlled Substances Act and have the potential to cause dangerous addictions. Throughout the United States, countless individuals are struggling with addictions to benzodiazepines such as Xanax, Valium, Librium, and Ativan.
