July 11, 2019 is World Benzodiazepine Awareness Day or W-BAD.  My guest is Wayne Douglas, co-founder of the event.  You will learn more about these dangerous, addictive drugs that are still widely prescribed beyond their recommended guidelines, often causing addiction, and frequently leaving long-term users with permanent cognitive problems.  They can contribute to suicide and violence.  Wayne Douglas may inspire you to find a group in your city to join in spreading life-saving information about these drugs. If you have been harmed by the “BZs” you will find companionship and inspiration through joining the reform movement.  You can find out how to connect at www.w-bad.org
