In brief: Yes

People can become very addicted to medications like valium.
They can develop severe psychological and physical addiction. In fact the withdrawal from a medication such as valium can be life threating if not monitored and treated appropriatly. People often need a medically monitored detox. If you or someone is addicted seek medical help before trying to stop on your own!
