About Jennifer Leigh, PsyD

Earlier in her career, Dr. Leigh was an authority on parenting teens. She appeared on national radio and TV, and her work was showcased in top newspapers and magazines. She was an online contributor for Psychology Today and an award-winning author. In 2010, everything came to a halt when she had a life-threatening brain injury due to a medication (a benzodiazepine) she took as directed by her doctor. She blogs honestly about her ordeal and helps people around the world who have the same injury. She also writes articles for addictionblog.org. Her support and education for the benzo community reach around the globe. Jennifer offers education and coping skills coaching to people in withdrawal.

Jennifer founded The Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Institute, a non-profit organization that serves people in benzo withdrawal. She is writing a new book, The Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Survival Guide for patients, doctors, and caregivers.
