Understanding Benzodiazepine Withdrawal/BIND for Helping Professionals is a six-week, 20-hour course for licensed health care providers, coaches, or counselors who want to serve best their clients or patients experiencing benzodiazepine withdrawal or BIND (benzodiazepine-induced neurological dysfunction).

Lack of education about benzodiazepines has inadvertently caused many helping professionals to harm their clients/patients.

This course will ensure that helping professionals give the best and proper care and avoid harming anyone experiencing benzo withdrawal/BIND.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be awarded a digital certificate and badge through Accredible, which they can embed in their website, social media, or other marketing tools as proof that they are “benzo-wise.”

Certified helping professionals will have the opportunity to be listed as a “benzo-wise” practitioner on the website.
