Abuse of Benzodiazepines in Washington State

In the state of Washington, the abuse of benzodiazepines is not the biggest problem, but it is still definitely a cause for concern. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) compiled data in 2012 on all prescribing rates for each state relating to different drugs. They found that Washington had a prescribing rate of 27.1 benzodiazepine prescriptions per 100 persons, which is one of the lowest rates of all states but can still potentially cause a great deal of harm since the rate can easily get higher if things are not done to control it. But, fortunately, the Washington Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) was implemented, to stop the misuse and abuse of prescription drugs, including benzodiazepines, by collecting all the data concerning prescriptions for Schedule II-V controlled substances.

Brand name benzodiazepines include Xanax, Valium, Librium, Klonopin, and Ativan. These drugs are prescribed as prescription sedatives and tranquilizers and are highly addictive if not taken properly. It is very easy for a person to become addicted to these drugs, and most addictions begin with a prescription. Benzodiazepines are also easy to purchase illegally through online pharmacies or street-level drug dealers.
