Beating Benzos - Facebook Group


I’ve now set up a Facebook Group called Beating Benzos which is linked to this website. Its primary objective is to provide hope and positive messages for those still in the throws of tapering or who have already stopped their benzo drug.


There are several groups on Facebook that give support for those in benzodiazepine withdrawal but mostly they discuss symptoms and seek assurance that what sufferers are experiencing is normal. That’s fine but I feel a more positive group is needed that provides evidence that we do heal and gives links to posts and articles that prove this. It’s all to easy to be negative and bemoan our lot but we do need to see that out of all this suffering comes healing and a return to normal life. I know just how hard it is to lose sight of recovery.


If you would like to join us and take part in the discussions that arise from the topics posted by members please just take a look. It may be that your partners or other family members and friends may like to join as well to give you support and ask questions. I look forward to meeting you there. The group is closed and completely private. Please log into Facebook here with your account and request permission to join. Any problems contact me at beatingbenzos@aol.co.uk
