I have a 5000 page document that I need to insert a blank page every 5 pages. Are there any scripts available for this?

Have done similar variations of this before. Here you go. 

 

var pgs = app.activeDocument.pages;
var i = 4;
while (true) {
    try {
        pgs.add(LocationOptions.AFTER, pgs[i], {appliedMaster:null});
        i+=6;
    } catch(e) {
        break; //we're out of range
    }
}
