About Extended Benzodiazepines

What Are Extended Benzodiazepines?

Extended benzodiazepines are depressants, commonly known by the product names of Restoril, Serax, Nordaz, Ativan, Halcion, Rohypnol, and many others. These are prescribed for the treatment of anxiety, panic attacks, seizures, or sleeping disorders. However, due to their sedative effects, many benzos are also abused as a date rape drug. Although frequently portrayed by the entertainment industry as an innocuous drug to promote relaxation in times of stress, the documentary As Prescribed uncovers the real life devastation of benzodiazepine drug abuse and addiction.

Does Extended benzodiazepines Show Up On a Drug Test?

Yes, extended benzodiazepines can be detected in a drug test. However, the type of test may be a factor in whether or not they will show up. Urine drug testing is more common since it is a fast, effective, and less expensive option, but it does look back on a shorter period of time (up to one week). If you need to identify drug use further back than one week, Health Street’s hair drug testing option can identify usage approximately 90 days back.

Why Drug Test for Extended Benzodiazepines?

Benzodiazepines are classified as a Schedule IV drug under the Controlled Substances Act. But even with a valid prescription, benzodiazepines can still be abused if they are taken more frequently or in higher quantities than prescribed. Health Street provides services for benzo drug tests, and a professional medical review officer can determine whether or not an individual is abusing the drug by reviewing the benzodiazepines drug test results. By ordering a benzo drug test, you may help create safer working or home environments or open the door to recovery for someone that may be at risk for addiction or death.
