Causes and Risk Factors of Benzodiazepine Addiction

Some people have a tendency toward addiction. Despite this, however, there is no single cause or risk factor that states a person will become addicted to a drug such as benzodiazepines. The most common causes and risk factors for benzodiazepine addiction include: 

  • Genetics
  • High levels of stress
  • Family tragedies 
  • Being female
  • Lower socioeconomic status
  • Drug or alcohol exposure at an early age
  • Childhood abuse or trauma 
  • Unemployment
  • Mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and PTSD

It’s also important to note that benzodiazepine abuse rarely occurs alone. In fact, 80% of individuals who abuse benzos also abuse another substance, like opioids too.
