Are you looking for benzodiazepine addiction treatment for yourself or a loved one?
At The Plymouth House we understand just how devastating benzodiazepine addiction can be. Benzodiazepine addiction affects thousands of American adults on an annual basis. According to an article published by the American Psychiatric Association, recent research studies show that roughly one out of every eight Americans is prescribed a benzodiazepine at one point or another, and that 17 percent of all people who are prescribed this type of medication end up abusing it. This type of medication includes Xanax, Valium, Ativan and Klonopin (among other brand names) and is generally used for the treatment of severe anxiety disorders or sleep-related issues. Benzodiazepines can also be used to treat the more severe symptoms associated with alcohol withdrawal. The majority of misuse happens among young adults between the ages of 18 and 25.
If you or someone you love has been suffering at the hands of a benzodiazepine abuse disorder of any severity, seeking professional help is critical. In recent years, rates of benzodiazepine overdose have been on the rise. “Drug overdose deaths involving benzodiazepines rose from 1,135 in 1999 to 11,537 in 2017,” the National Institute on Drug Abuse reported. Overdose is more common when this type of medication is combined with opioid narcotics or alcohol, which happens frequently.
