PUBLIC ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF WORLD BENZODIAZEPINE AWARENESS DAY

State Recognition in the United States

We’re off to a good start, but we need your help to spread the word about the dangers of benzodiazepines. The purpose of obtaining resolutions in each U.S. State is for official public acknowledgment and awareness of the day, and to put benzodiazepines on the radar of state legislators in hopes that, perhaps, other bills — like the one in Massachusetts — will materialize.

Look for your state’s politicians using any of the following resources:

  1. OpenStates.org – Find your legislator tool.
  2. USA.gov’s lists of Elected Officials – Learn how to get in touch with your federal, state, and local elected leaders.

Or, you can Google who your politicians are.

Next, please send the following two items to your state representative:

  1. The W-BAD resolution that was filed in Massachusetts
  2. One of the two sample letterswe have created for you (follow the instructions atop each sample letter to personalize them). Click on the images below to go to the sample letters:

W-BAD Representatives who are trying to contact their legislators in an effort to recognize World Benzodiazepine Awareness Day can be found on the W-BAD team page.


 

CAUTION! Do not cold turkey! Abrupt cessation of benzodiazepines may be very dangerous. Always consult your prescriber if you are considering making any changes.
