What Are Benzodiazepines?
Benzodiazepines, also sometimes referred to as “benzos,” are
a category of prescription drugs that are generally prescribed to treat
conditions such as anxiety and insomnia. Many people use these types of
drugs for these purposes, and benzodiazepines can be an effective type
of treatment for many people.
Some people begin using benzodiazepines to treat anxiety or insomnia and
then become addicted to their medication. Other people who abuse benzodiazepines
do not have a medical need for the drugs. This class of drugs has become
more commonly used recreationally — doing so can quickly lead to
addiction and dangerous side effects. The main method of benzodiazepine
abuse is orally, and snorting.
The word “benzodiazepine” might not sound familiar, but many
of the drugs within this category are recognizable. Benzodiazepines that
are commonly abused include:
Effects of Benzodiazepine Use
Benzodiazepine addiction can have many negative effects on the mind, body,

These problems can range from loss of job, marital and relationship issues,
