What we're about

Benzo Hope is a peer withdrawal support group whose purpose is to provide support, information, and hope for those who are looking to safely start a benzodiazepine taper, currently tapering, or are finished tapering and in need of continued support.

We currently meet virtually via Zoom, and all across the globe are welcome!

While those who are struggling with addiction are welcome at this meeting, our focus is on tapering and managing withdrawal.

Benzo Hope Meeting

Needs a location

After starting with a group breathing exercise, there will be voluntary shares; you may specify what kind of feedback (if at all) you’d like! We’ll close with a brief meditation, stress reduction exercise, or inspirational reading from those before us who’ve healed!

Please RSVP - we send out the Zoom link to the RSVPs toward the end of the week, and send it again the day of.

Please note we are fellow patients, not professionals, and do not provide medical advice.

We greatly appreciate donations to offset the costs of our Meetup and Zoom account fees.
