Benzodiazepines or benzos can be very addictive. These drugs are often prescribed by doctors to treat a range of conditions, including treating anxiety disorders and sleep conditions. Some people use them illicitly without a prescription. It is possible to develop an addiction to them even if you are using them as your doctor prescribes. In all cases, our team at Viewpoint Dual Recovery Center can offer you the support you need to recover.
