Not to be confused with documentaries, the following videos were made for educational purposes by professionals and professional educators. If you are a professional or have footage of a lecture, conference, or other educational film on benzodiazepines and benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome (BWS), please contact us so we can add it to w-bad.org.
Note: Sometimes, even professionals accidentally use addiction language when describing a problem with dependency. Keep this in mind when watching or reading any educational materials, as some professionals actually know the difference and some do not. It’s a common language faux-pas, but may be one reason why awareness of the problem of prescribed drug dependence and withdrawal syndromes has been oppressed. Please see our addiction vs. dependency page on using accurate language when describing the problem with BWS in cases of dependency in the absence of substance use disorder(s).
The following videos feature professionals who have benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome awareness, and awareness of other commonly prescribed medications which can cause dependency and a withdrawal syndrome.
