No. Due to the complicated and potentially disabling nature of benzodiazepine cessation, we firmly believe each patient has the right to a fully informed consent in choosing if and when to take benzodiazepines, and to choose a taper rate of their own when they decide to stop taking them.

We hope to prevent further patient injury by providing accurate information on the risks of benzodiazepine use. We understand that the most complicated and dangerous aspect of benzodiazepine use is cessation; the last thing we want to see is an outright ban on benzodiazepines that would result in thousands of unnecessary deaths.
