Better known as Valium, diazepam is a benzodiazepine, a family of commonly prescribed prescription tranquilizers. It’s used to treat anxiety disorders, alcohol withdrawal, insomnia, and other conditions. Like all prescriptions, diazepam is generally safe when used according to direction. 

Recreational abuse, on the other hand, is dangerous. Diazepam abuse is particularly risky. It is easy to build up a tolerance to diazepam’s effects. This means a person has to take more diazepam to feel the same effects. In addition to developing addiction, this can easily cause diazepam overdose. 

Recovering from diazepam addiction can be very complex and dangerous if attempted on one’s own. Diazepam recovery must be done in a medically monitored detox setting to be successful and safe.
