Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Help


Benzodiazepines affect GABA, the most prevalent calming neurotransmitter in the human body. As the GABA receptors are modified from continuous use, dependence and tolerance can occur. The alteration of GABA can have a profound impact on nearly every aspect of life as the critical calming is replaced by over excitation that wreaks havoc on the entire body and nervous system.  This is why benzodiazepine dependence is deemed one of the most challenging addictions to face and why even at small dosages over short periods of time all benzodiazepines are highly addictive.  

Our nonprofit has specialized in Benzodiazepine Withdrawal. Most of our team has been on Benzos, so we have firsthand experience. You can be part of a proven methodology that has been used worldwide to recover from Benzo Addiction. This is a complicated process that requires expertise.



The decision to taper a benzo is a serious one and this withdrawal process must be done with expertise or rebound high blood pressure can occur. In addition, the overwhelming symptoms so common with Benzo Withdrawal must be eased to make even a slow taper possible.  The Point of Return Program was developed over 14 years ago and has been used successfully in every state of the United States and in 76 countries.  Our nonprofit team has survived benzo addiction and recovered fully, so we know the steps necessary to achieve success. This is why we guide each person individually, designing a program that is right for your situation. And yes, we also use calming all-natural nutraceuticals to make the withdrawal process possible. You are never alone in the process, we guide you every step of the way.

Did you know that using Ginger while on Clonazepam can put you in Withdrawal?  Or taking Calcium supplements can over-excite your nervous system and increase anxiety, panic and insomnia?  There are many interactions with over-the-counter items, foods, herbs and vitamins and this is why we assess each person individually to ensure you have success. The more stable the blood level of your benzo, the more comfortable your taper.  The nutraceuticals in our program will not interact with any medication, yet they calm and are highly effective.  We know what you need to make it through Benzodiazepine Withdrawal.



Professor Ashton’s work is legendary and many assume switching to a longer-acting benzo is the answer to the withdrawal process. But it isn’t that simple, we all metabolize drugs differently, are taking other medications with the benzo which can alter its blood level. Many change to a long-acting benzo, feel worse, switch back and lose confidence that they can taper. Let us help you determine the best course, this is our area of expertise.


Many of our clients come on multiple medications, having no idea how they interact or how withdrawing from one medication may affect the level of another. Interactions are our specialty and we assess each person for interactions and set up a plan that you can follow easily, in the comfort of your own home.


Most find that even a small reduction of a benzo causes horrific systemic symptoms. Going cold-turkey must be done as an inpatient with qualified medical supervision, yet most do not want to risk the escalating pain of a cold-turkey. The GABA receptors do not immediately begin working again and most find the long-term symptoms from a rapid withdrawal too painful. We want to bring GABA back to life as you taper slowly. Its humane, more comfortable and provides the greatest success rates.  We do not believe in substituting one drug for another, our goal is to bring you back to life, remind your body how to sleep naturally again, and have you engage the world.
