About Benzodiazepine Addiction

Benzodiazepines are a form of depressants that produce sedation and hypnosis. As prescriptions, they often have uses like relieving anxiety and muscle spasms and reducing seizures. Common prescriptions in this category are Valium, Klonopin, Xanax, and Ativan. These drugs are commonly used to get high by cocaine and heroin users.

People with substance use disorders who take these drugs experience long-term effects of benzodiazepines, including:

  • Development of Alzheimer’s disease
  • Cognitive issues with coordination and memory
  • Poor concentration
  • Increased time to complete tasks
  • Blood clots or heart stoppages
  • Liver damage

These effects may start to appear as little as three to six months after substance use begins. Seeking addiction treatment allows those with a benzodiazepine use disorder to find healing.
