Experts say that prescription drug abuse in adolescents has been dropping in recent years, but the number of young people who are addicted to Xanax and other benzodiazepines [Valium, Ativan, Klonopin, Halcion] has actually been climbing alarmingly high in recent years.
The Director of Adolescent Addiction Treatment at Boston Children’s Hospital, Sharon Levy, said that the use of benzodiazepines among adolescents has “skyrocketed.” More kids are being admitted to hospitals for withdrawals from the drugs, which often cause dangerous seizures.
