What Are Benzodiazepines?

Benzodiazepines are a group of medications that can help lower anxiety and facilitate sleep. These drugs slow down the central nervous system and typically produce feelings of calm and relaxation. While these drugs can be helpful following a doctor’s prescription, benzodiazepine abuse can lead to debilitating addiction.

What Is Benzodiazepine Addiction?

If you are reading this, chances are that you or someone you care about has a problem with benzodiazepine use. Some of the common warning signs include:

  • Needing to use more than before to feel the effects
  • Losing control over how much or how often you use
  • Strong cravings for the drug
  • Experiencing headaches, insomnia, anxiety, tension, sweating, difficulty concentrating, tremor, sensory disturbances, fatigue, stomach upset and loss of appetite when not using
  • “Doctor shopping”
  • Isolating yourself from family and friends

What Causes Benzodiazepine Addiction?

It is generally accepted that addiction to any substance, including a benzodiazepine addiction, is not caused by a single factor, but rather by a combination of genetic and environmental influences.

Individuals who take a benzodiazepine daily for more than a few weeks – especially at higher doses – are at increased risk of developing an addiction. Also, those who have not engaged in other ways of dealing with anxiety, such as walking, meditation, yoga, therapy etc., are at greater risk. 

People with a history of substance use disorders are particularly vulnerable to becoming addicted to benzodiazepines. The bottom line is that if you or a loved one are suffering from symptoms of benzodiazepine abuse, now is the time to act.

How Do I Know if I’m Addicted to Benzodiazepines?

You rely on using benzodiazepines to cope with your day-to-day life. When something goes wrong or you feel the first signs of anxiety, you immediately reach for a pill. You need more medication to produce the desired effects and are using it more often than you intended to. 

When you’re not using benzodiazepine you may experience anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, headaches, an upset stomach and other physical symptoms. You experience cravings and are preoccupied with thoughts of using. You are spending too much time seeking the drug and spending too much money on it. You are neglecting other important aspects of your life, including self-care. These are just some of the many signs that using is becoming a problem in your life and you should seek benzodiazepine addiction treatment and rehab.

Other possible signs of benzodiazepine addiction include:

  • You are experiencing weakness, drowsiness and blurred vision.
  • You feel confused and are not thinking clearly; you have difficulty problem-solving and show poor judgment.
  • You are noticing mood changes.
  • You are asking friends, family, or colleagues for their benzodiazepine pills.
  • You are combining benzodiazepines with alcohol or other drugs to amplify their effect.
  • You have become secretive and have an increased need for privacy.
  • You feel resentful and defensive when loved ones express concern about you.
  • You find yourself using benzodiazepines and driving, or engaging in other risky behaviour.
  • You are losing control and feel helpless and ashamed, and have no idea how you ended up in this downward spiral.
