The Bill and Kali Show News – James Beecher & Debbie Wagner – You’re Not Alone Jonathan Wagner Benzodiazepine Awareness Foundation

You’re Not Alone is a non for profit organization dedicated to helping individuals and their families deal with the debilitating and often tragic effects of benzo withdrawal. Our goal is to be able to offer help and hope to anyone suffering from benzodiazepine addiction, as well as a network for families who have lost a loved one due to the effects of benzos.

From the Family

Jonathan was our beloved son. After switching shifts at work, he was having trouble sleeping. After consulting with his general practitioner, the doctor prescribed him Klonopin, a powerful benzodiazepine, to help him sleep. The benzo caused worsened sleep habits along with panic attacks, depression, anxiety, nervousness, and insomnia. The list of withdrawals goes on. When he reported his symptoms to his GP, he was prescribed even more benzos, which caused him to spiral into severe anxiety and depression. We had nowhere to turn for help. He wasn’t an addict, and he never suffered from prior depression. His doctor never made him aware, or maybe wasn’t aware himself, of how quickly the body can become dependent on these powerful drugs, or the debilitating, and possibly deadly, effects that benzodiazepines can cause.

His life was turned into a battle with his brain to stay alive because of this medicine, a battle he did not win.
