Benzodiazepine/Sleeping Pill Addiction, Tapering and Recovery


We Do NOT Provide Individual Advice

Use of this blog and the respective resources are subject to acceptance of our conditions of use and the following disclaimer:




We do not provide individual advice or respond to individual requests for assistance with discontinuation of psychiatric drugs such as benzodiazepines, sleeping pills and anti-depressants.

We strongly recommend that people consult a physician who is informed about the risks of psychiatric drugs and drug withdrawal.

Those who cannot find a physician to assist them are advised to contact the nearest provincial or state mental health & addictions service — or the local Health department — and request a referral to a physician or counsellor who is very familiar with slow methods of tapering off prescription drugs (such as the Ashton protocol).

Doing so raises awareness in the health care system about the urgent need for appropriate assistance and support for prescription drug issues.
