Although it is no longer in the media spotlight the way it once was, the word “Valium” still conjures up images of affluent, semi-sedate, men and women that live in a glacial, almost trance-like world where nothing bothers them because they are too loaded up on Valium to care. For nearly two decades, during the 70s and 80s of the 20th century, Valium was the generic solution that many doctors prescribed—especially to affluent women. It was promoted as the cure-all, anti-anxiety drug that would help them cope with everything from the minor stress of an upcoming wedding to long-standing psychological anxiety issues. Everyone that took Valium relaxed, which didn’t seem like a bad thing.
Unfortunately, most people that took Valium also developed a serious addiction to it, and in many cases, it silently wreaked havoc with many otherwise upstanding lives, as financially well-to-do men and women alike were simply prescribed increasingly larger amounts of Valium for years, courtesy of their own doctors.
Today, there is a much clearer understanding of the dangers of Valium and Valium addiction treatment has made a lot of progress.
