Diazepam Abuse and Addiction

Creating A Larger and Larger Body Count

Diazepam abuse is posing an increasingly urgent substance abuse threat in the United States. Better known as Valium, diazepam is a benzodiazepine commonly used to treat anxiety and panic attacks. While it’s proven remarkably effective in the treatment of certain anxiety-related issues, diazepam can also be incredibly addictive and dangerous, particularly when mixed with alcohol. In 2014, there were over 1,700 overdoses due to diazepam, a number that has been steadily climbing for the past five years. If you or someone you care about is one of the thousands that have fallen victim to diazepam abuse, help is closer than you think.
