WASHINGTON DC - The Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recently published a study that indicates benzodiazepine usage has tripled over the past decade.

Benzodiazepines are a class of drugs which are used to treat seizures, anxiety and insomnia. They were created back in the 1950's as an alternative to barbiturate use within the mental health field. While opiates still remained the number one abused controlled substance in this study, benzodiazepines ranked number two.

All FDA approved medications have their place when used properly, begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center . The issue is when those substances fall into the wrong hands. And, since there are more individuals being prescribed these types of drugs, the chances of abuse by a friend or relative are increased. Fortunately, holistic drug rehab is effective in overcoming these types of addictions. Mountainside's entire team of professional social workers and counselors all have extensive experience in the field of addiction. Our drug rehab program is second to none.

If you know or suspect that your friend or loved one is abusing benzodiazepines, or any other type of substance, Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center offers professional intervention services to assist you in getting them the help that they need to recover.

The program, along with its professional addiction treatment team, have earned national recognition and resulted in Mountainside being invited to Washington by the White House to meet with the White House Drug Czar, John P. Waters, for an in-depth meeting on what makes its program so successful. These accolades did not go unnoticed within the addiction treatment field and resulted in the adoption by many throughout the country of a more holistic approach to drug addiction treatment.
