Klonopin Addiction Treatment: Essential and Dangerous
Klonopin is a drug that is commonly prescribed to treat anxiety and seizures. It is a benzodiazepine and has sedative effects to calm the individual using it. Klonopin and Benzos in general, are some of the most dangerous drugs to become addicted to because of the risks that accompany withdrawal. Should someone become dependent on this drug, their body could become even more prone to anxiety and seizures as well as many other new symptoms that did not previously exist.
