> I think I read that benzodiazepine use negatively effects the bodies endogenous opioid system? Does anyone know about this? In light of the fact that in some people benzo use can cause or exacerbate depression, could this give credability to an Endorphin Deficiency Syndrome being a possible cause of depression/anxiety disorders?

At least some of the benzos influence endorphin and enkephalin levels in the blood and CFS. There seems to be a difference between the acute effects and chronic effects. I have seen no evidence that endorphin levels are associated with mood or anxiety disorders. At least, that I recall.
