In brief: Yes

Dalmane (flurazepam) aka Flurazepam is a long acting benzodiazepine.
Benzodiazepines may be addictive and should not be used long term, but they do have potentially serious withdrawal symptoms if stopped abruptly. You can definitely taper it, but make sure you do this under your doctor's supervision.
