"narcotic" is an antiquated term and means different things to different people. Valium is not an opioid. Opioid drugs are commonly called "narcotics". Valium is a benzodiazepine. It is a controlled substance. It is VERY habit forming and has abuse potential. Some people use "narcotic" for all controlled substances which is an incorrect use. If you are wanting something that is habit forming or "addictive" then Valium is not the drug that you want. Buspar might be a good option if you want a nerve medication that isnt habit forming.
Valium is a controlled medication. It can be addicting. It can also cause dependence which is a normal physiological reaction, and you would need to wean off.
