Take a Survey

There appears to be very little statistical information to help describe and define benzodiazepine dependency and withdrawal. While benzodiazepine withdrawal is a very individual experience and group statistics will never be able to predict the path of an individual's withdrawal, trend data may give a general indication to those elusive questions like "How long does withdrawal last?" "Is there a relationship between withdrawal method and length of recovery?" "How effective is Water Titration as a withdrawal method?" The surveys below may go some way to answering these questions.

There are a number of surveys below each representing a point in the benzodiazepine withdrawal journey. Please take part in the survey that is most relevant to your current situation. As you progress in your journey off benzodiazepines please return to this page and take part in the next survey in the series as they become relevant to you. When enough people have taken part a full analysis of the results will be made and results will be published here from time to time.

The information from these surveys will be more accurate and will paint a better picture of the benzodiazepine situation, the more people that take part. Please encourage anyone you know who is taking benzodiazepines or who is getting off them to come here and complete one of the surveys.

Thank you very much for taking part in these surveys.

The surveys vary in length but should take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete.

Benzodiazepine Survey One - Getting Ready to Withdraw. The purpose of this survey is to collect statistical information from people who are intending to withdraw from benzodiazepines. Please complete this survey if you are about to start withdrawing from benzodiazepines or if you are currently in the process of withdrawing but have not yet completed the process.

Benzodiazepine Survey Three -  Recovered. The purpose of this survey is to collect statistical information from people who have completed their withdrawal from benzodiazepines and consider themselves to be recovered or just about recovered. Please complete this survey if you are recovered or just about recovered - note if you only have a few minor symptoms that are not causing you major problems and you considered yourself close to recovered you would fall into this group. Please ensure that you have felt about recovered for at least 6 weeks before completing this survey - this is to avoid collecting recovery information from people who are 'just' experiencing a window in their recovery.

Benzodiazepine Survey Seven - Still in Withdrawal Four or more years after Stoping Benzodiazepines.

Please complete this survey if you fall into this group. This survey can be completed more than once. It would be ideal if it were completed on each anniversary of being benzodiazepine or Z-drug free until you feel you are recovered.
