The withdrawals from benzodiazepines can be dangerous, and even life-threatening in some cases. The medical detox process is the most effective way and the safest to manage withdrawal pains and help an addict through the symptoms. Other options include working with a healthcare professional to slowly taper off the drugs. The rehabilitation process must be done as soon as possible because the longer someone remains on these drugs the worse, the problem becomes.

Abuse of Benzodiazepines in Utah

Utah has an issue with the abuse of benzodiazepines, as well as many other drugs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) put together data on the prescribing rate of each state for different drugs in 2012, and the findings were that in Texas, the prescribing rate was 29.8 benzodiazepine prescriptions per 100 persons. This is not one of the highest rates, but it is still concerning. This is why the Utah Controlled Substance Database Program (CSD) was created to collect information on the dispensing of controlled substances Schedules II-V. It is used mainly to identify and rectify cases of overprescribing by the prescribers and dispensers and abuse by the patients, to ensure that the prescription of drugs is done safely. Common brand names that are abused include Xanax, Ativan, Valium, and Librium.
