Benzodiazepine Addiction in New Jersey
The National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that between 2015 and 2016, 12.5 percent of American adults used benzodiazepines. This equates to over 30.5 million men and women throughout the U.S. While the rates of benzodiazepine use are exceptionally high, it was also discovered that during that same year only 2.1 percent of men and women who took benzodiazepines actively abused them. Unfortunately, since this study was conducted, the rates of abuse have continued to skyrocket throughout the U.S.
New Jersey has been especially hard-hit by benzodiazepine abuse and addiction. These potent prescription medications are generally used to treat anxiety-related disorders, and they all have a high propensity for abuse. Some common brand names include Valium, Xanax, and Ativan – all of which are very frequently prescribed. Xanax is one of the most frequently prescribed medications in the country – and it also has one of the highest propensities for abuse.

Benzodiazepine Addiction Rehab in New Jersey
Over the past decade, New Jersey has been rocked by the ongoing opioid epidemic. Opioid narcotics like prescription painkillers and heroin claim thousands of lives on an annual basis, and rates of overdose are higher in New Jersey than they are throughout most of the United States. The National Institute on Drug Abuse recently reported that more than 30 percent of all opioid-related overdose deaths also include benzodiazepines. Benzodiazepines are sedative drugs, meaning that they suppress central nervous system functioning and lead to feelings of relaxation. When taken in combination with opioids, medications like Klonopin, Valium, and Xanax can prove to be deadly.
Even when prescribed by a medical professional and taken as prescribed, benzodiazepines can lead to physical and psychological dependence. It is important to note that individuals who have personal histories of substance abuse or dependence (or who have addictive disorders in their family history) should never be prescribed a potent and habit-forming medication unless necessary. In some instances, benzodiazepines will be prescribed in a medical detoxification setting to help alleviate the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal. When benzodiazepines are administered by a medical professional in a detox setting, they are safe to use.

Our program of benzodiazepine addiction treatment is both comprehensive and highly individualized. At Absolute Awakenings, we understand the importance of treating each client based on his or her unique needs and requirements.

We believe that providing an individual with a comprehensive approach to clinical care will help pave the road for long-term sobriety. If you or someone close to you has either been prescribed a benzodiazepine and has fallen victim to abuse or has been combining benzodiazepines with other drugs (like opioid narcotics), seeking professional help is of the utmost importance.
