What are Benzodiazepines?
Benzodiazepines are psychoactive drugs or medications that are effective and safe over short-term usage for a variety of mental and physical conditions including:
- alcohol and drug withdrawal symptoms
- anxiety and generalized anxiety disorders
- insomnia and other sleep disorders
- panic attacks
Although they have been proven to be highly effective where the above is concerned, certain cognitive impairments as well as other paradoxical effects oftentimes arise during the course of taking these medications. These include aggressive behavior patterns and disinhibition. Due to concerns involving adverse physical and psychological effects the long-term use of Benzodiazepines has become a controversial issue.
Despite the benefits that individuals with the above conditions oftentimes witness, tolerance to Benzodiazepines can build and dependence upon them can result. This dependency can be physical or psychological in nature or may even be a combination of both. To compound this problem, the DEA now views the illegal trafficking of Benzodiazepines as one of the current drug threats in the US today. Additionally, the US National Institute of Health also views Benzodiazepine abuse as a serious public health threat.
Typically, dependence on Benzodiazepines manifests itself when the dosage of these medications is completely ceased or simply reduced. It is not uncommon to witness withdrawal symptoms either. These can range from mild symptoms that are short-term in duration to long-term and prolonged symptoms that are much more severe. Due to the illegal trafficking and growing abuse of Benzodiazepines, many addiction treatment and recovery centers here in the state now offer programs to treat this.
