"I was on a benzo for several months during my chemotherapy, prescribed by my oncologist. I was not aware that it is a habit-forming medication that can cause dependency even after short term use. I was facing side effects from benzo withdrawal that were debilitating for me and my family, in fact much more so than the chemo treatment itself! I was tired, stressed, anxious and had lost my ability to sleep. The biggest challenge was falling and staying asleep. I was lucky to find this great service that helped me taper slowly and on a daily basis with daily feedback, check-ins and adjustments needed to successfully taper off. I am now fully off of benzos and back to my normal self." - Karen
