Millions of lives across the world are adversely affected by prescribed drugs treating stress and anxiety. Our friends and family need to know the facts. While only a small piece of a larger picture, this educational documentary aims to reform the uninhibited prescribing practices for Benzodiazepines like Xanax, Valium, and Ativan.

In 2017, Advocates for Social Reform held The International Benzodiazepine Symposium (TIBS), a gathering of healthcare professionals and experts focused on the evidence-based potential dangers from long-term use of Benzodiazepines and the importance of safe prescribing practices. Our documentary, Benzodiazepines: What Everyone Needs to Know, will be the product of this assembly and reach millions of patients, practitioners, and those who have been adversely affected by benzodiazepines with a message of education, hope, and recovery. We are trying to raise $80,000 to fund our production process. Join us in the fight against this pressing cause.

Our goals include:

1. Creating a framework for the beneficial use of benzodiazepines, along with appropriate guidelines and warnings by pharmaceutical companies and prescribing physicians regarding the serious side effects of prolonged use of these medications.

2. Finding common ground between the psycho-pharmaceutical industry and those whose lives have been compromised by benzodiazepines.
