National Institute on Drug Abuse
Valium is a benzodiazepine prescribed by medical doctors and psychiatrists to treat anxiety and panic attacks. It is also used as a muscle relaxant and sedative. It replaces chemicals normally produced in the brain to slow down abnormally fast electrical activity. Valium problems begin when you use it for an extended period of time. When you quit taking it, your brain is not capable of producing the chemicals fast enough to keep up with the demand; you are physically addicted.
The general feeling of relaxation induced by using Valium is what has made it one of the most commonly abused prescription drugs in the sedative or tranquilizer category. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 2.6 million people used a drug in this category for non-medical reasons every month during 2010.
- You will become clumsy and unable to perform the physical activities you enjoy.
- You will experience mood swings and bouts of depression.
- Over time, you may become aggressive or even violent.
- You will become physically and mentally dependent on the drug and have severe withdrawal symptoms any time you do not have enough in your system.
What is Drug Rehabilitation?
Drugs are something that can hinder anyone nowadays. Drug abuse can be described as the use of illegal drugs, or the misuse of prescription or over-the-counter drugs. According to the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, there are about 22.5 million drug users that are accounted for in the United States. Meaning that about 7.2 percent of Americans use drugs and most are probably addicted. But the thing is many people do not ask for help with their drug addiction. About 23.5 million people needed treatment for a drug or alcohol abuse problem. Of these, only 2.6 million or 11.2 percent of those who needed treatment received it at a specialty facility.
The reason many people who have substance abuse do not go to a drug rehab facility, is because they can never find one that is able to cater to their needs.
