Drug Rehab Centers for Benzodiazepine (Diazepam) in Wisconsin

Last updated: 27 June 2022


The drug treatment resources that are on hand throughout the state of Wisconsin include inpatient and outpatient facilities. Other treatment options will be medical detox and conventional detoxification programs. Medical detox is the safest approach to help a benzodiazepine addict through his or her withdrawals. The addiction can start with casual use of the drug, taking more than as-needed, and from there it can progress into a strong physical and psychological dependency. This intense dependency can lead to an addiction, which will be difficult to overcome without the proper help. Some of the most commonly abused benzodiazepines within the United States include Valium, Librium, Ativan, Klonopin, and Xanax. Typically, these drugs are prescribed to treat mental health problems such as anxiety, and insomnia. They are also used to help with muscle relaxation, and to treat alcohol withdrawals. An addiction to benzodiazepines can happen very easily, and in fact, most addicts become addicted to these drugs after being prescribed them.

Abuse of Benzodiazepines in the state of Wisconsin

In Wisconsin, there are many issues about substance use, and one of them, although not the most distressing, is the abuse of benzodiazepines. In 2012, the prescribing rate for the state was 33.4 prescriptions for benzodiazepines per 100 persons, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). But, like many states, Wisconsin has put in place an Enhanced Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (ePDMP), to help combat all types of drug abuse, including benzos. It stores all the prescription information that has been dispensed in Wisconsin and can be accessed by law enforcement, healthcare professionals, pharmacies, etc., to provide the best level of care in the community.
