What we're about

We are a support group founded in 2017 and based in the greater Chicagoland area. Our goal is to help those struggling with benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome, as well as family and friends of those affected. We meet once or twice a month at the Schaumburg Public Library in Schaumburg, IL. Our goal is to provide support, understanding, foster growth during healing, and spread awareness.
