Where does World Benzodiazepine Awareness Day occur?
The problem of iatrogenic benzodiazepine dependency, misprescription, overprescription, poly-drugging, and long-term use is invasive and worldwide.
The “World” in World Benzodiazepine Awareness Day’s name indicates that the initiative seeks to raise global awareness about the severe problem of iatrogenic (medically induced) benzodiazepine drug dependency that continues to affect millions of unsuspecting, innocent people worldwide—either directly or indirectly.
World Benzodiazepine Awareness Day is not possible without you—the world.
“People are free to give recognition to this day in their own way. An initiative like this may take some time to catch on, but I’m sure it has the potential to gain momentum over successive years. There is ample talent amongst benzodiazepine victims and campaigners, so let’s pool our resources and ideas, and raise some awareness. All the best to everyone, and I hope that this day grows in its own way in its own time, and turns out to be something special.” —Wayne Douglas, W-BAD’s Co-Organizer
