'Prescription Dream' - Voice of Aiko
CGL’s RESTproject has provided essential support services for people experiencingdependence and withdrawal from benzodiazepines for the past 30 years. Duringthis time the service has helped thousands of individuals to safely reducefrom minor tranquillisers and sleeping pills. We empower service users to get their voices heard. We maximise choices about whether to stabilise,reduce or withdraw from benzodiazepines.
- Those wishing to reduce are given information, encouragement and support to do so as comfortably as possible.
- We educate people who may come across the problem of benzodiazepine dependency, towards an understanding of the difficulties caused by the drug’s action and the compounding of those problems in withdrawal.
- We liaise with the services involved in the prescribing of benzodiazepines.
- We are user focused and provide a variety of different services, aiming to meet service user needs including:
- Advice and information
- Peer support group
- CGL’s Recovery Groups
- Drama, art and dance therapy
- Complementary therapies
- Support for family members and partners
- We are open to adults living in Camden or Islington having problems with their useof benzodiazepines.
