Two New Research Opportunities
Two new research teams are seeking patients impacted by benzodiazepines to discuss their experiences. Both teams are conducting short surveys. If you have taken a benzodiazepine, please consider helping them by sharing your experience. Neither team is affiliated with BIC.
Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Experiences Amongst Autistic and Neurotypical Individuals

The survey should take approximately 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the level of detail provided in the open-ended questions

Join research on benzodiazepine experiences and withdrawal. The researchers are seeking insights from both neurotypical and autistic individuals. Your experience can drive change in awareness and support strategies. Participation is confidential and impactful.

The researchers are excited to announce the opportunity to participate in a study that was born in the benzo support community. Folks in all stages of healing helped to formulate the nature of the questions, provided input on survey design, and have been involved in each phase up to this invitation to participate. The results of this Indiana University IRB-approved study have the potential to greatly impact our understanding of factors that enable the development of post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS) and can open the door to interventions to promote healing from benzo injuries. If you’re 18 or older and have been through benzo withdrawal at least once as an adult, please consider spending 10-15 min completing the survey – it may have a much bigger impact than you expect!
