Klonopin Abuse

Klonopin can be either ingested orally or snorted by its users. Also to magnify the effects from the drug, addicts often also drink alcohol while klonopin is in their system. This combination can be deadly or lead to serious health issues. Those suffering from klonopin addiction are often using it due to the feeling of relaxation caused by the drug. These feelings of relaxation often become a form of escaping difficult problems and emotions.
