Surviving Isolation: Benzo Withdrawal in Chaotic Times
Updated: Mar 22
Viral outbreaks, social phobias, benzo withdrawal — all these events can be isolating, and any combination can lead to extreme levels of fear, separation, and loneliness. Why do we suffer so when we are alone? And what can we do about it?
In today’s episode, we look at isolation and loneliness in today’s chaotic times. We also shine our spotlight on a new benzo organization, discuss the dilemma of when to take your last dose, explore the effectiveness of rehabilitation centers, and hear a benzo story from Louisiana.
