Benzos like Valium, Ativan and Klonopin have been around for decades and have become household names. Benzodiazepine drugs are a part of modern culture. Researchers at Oregon State University suggest that teens might be provided with benzos for medical conditions, such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Seizures
  • Sleep disorders
  • Dental concerns

These drugs are not always recommended for routine use in adolescents. If a teen is given this drug for a very short period of time, addiction risks may be low. Unfortunately, for teens who continue to take benzos could face long-term risks of addiction and even benzodiazepine overdose.
