Benzo Addiction Rehab in New Jersey

The talented team at Boca Recovery Center can guide you through a safe transition from intoxication to sobriety. Then, therapy can help you learn how to stay sober for the long term.


New Jersey newspapers are filled with articles about opioid abuse and overdoses. But experts say benzodiazepine abuse is underrecognized and a problem all across the country.[1] If you’ve been struggling with benzodiazepine addiction, Boca Recovery Center is the best place to get help.

Benzodiazepines are prescription sedative drugs doctors use to treat conditions like insomnia and mental health conditions like anxiety disorders. But they can also cause euphoria. And the changes they cause can make quitting on your own extremely dangerous. That’s why seeking treatment is so important.

Benzodiazepine Addiction Statistics in New Jersey

Key Facts

  • Anyone who uses benzodiazepines longer than three to four weeks will likely have withdrawal symptoms if they quit the drugs abruptly.[2]
  • Benzo abuse is so widespread in New Jersey that legislators have proposed rules that would force doctors to taper the doses they give their patients.[3]
  • In 2021, about 18 in 100,000 New Jersey residents visited hospitals in the state due to nonfatal interactions with benzodiazepine drugs. More people went to the hospital due to benzos than stimulants.[4]
  • Between January and August of 2023, more than 1,700 deaths in New Jersey were caused by drug overdoses.[5]
