Don't Go Through Withdrawal alone. Join Us.

Book A Coaching Session

Hello, I’m Jennifer

Like you, I trusted my doctor and suffered a chemical brain injury from the benzodiazepine that I took as prescribed.

Now seven years off the drug, I educate people worldwide about benzos, as well as help them learn to cope with withdrawal symptoms.

If I can be of any help to you, please reach out.

I’m here for you,
Jennifer Leigh, PsyD

WORKBOOKS TO HELP YOU HEAL

If you are off of your benzo, this journal will help you to keep track of your healing. You can make notations about your sleep, diet, exercise, distractions, spiritual practices, and more. A page of prompts helps you fill in your information quickly, and the proceeding blank page gives you room for your thoughts, sketches, doodles, etc. Be as creative as you’d like. There is also a section for doctors, therapists, and friends and family should you wish to share. I wish you all the best on your healing journey!

The Benzodiazepine Tapering Journal was created to help you keep track of your medication, doses, the time taken, and any withdrawal symptoms you may have, etc. There is a section for doctors, therapists, and friends and family should you want to share with them. The journal is to assist you in staying organized and aware of any changes in your health. The Journal is not meant to be medical advice, but rather simply a tool that you can use to help yourself as you taper off of a benzo.
