Recommended Posts

Merged topics

Survey is easy, and should take about ten minutes. 

 

 

London university in conjunction with CEP, London and with support of Baylissa Frederick , Recovery Road, is conducting a survey about dependence and withdrawal from benzos, A/Ds, opiod painkillers or other drugs of dependence.  Please, please, please reply.  this is an opportunity not to be missed whatever country you live in.  The results will be published in academic journals.  Make it known how big this problem is and what services are needed. UK responses will inform UK policy.  If we secure services in the UK other countries may follow the lead.  Please share in other support groups.

I've filled in this survey and hope that everyone here will too. Anyone, worldwide can fill it in and show the bigger picture. It asks lots of questions and also in your own words experiences but the box isn't very big so needs to be condensed. It doesn't matter if you can't fill it in just tick the boxes. No personal setails are asked for but you have to create a unique number/name that shows you are a real person and agree to then using the questionaire to create statistics. It is by far the best one I have seen. 

 

Please take 10minutes, even if you just tick the boxes. I mentioned that SA is the only worldwide site that covers AD withdrawal and is growing so fast as people find out the truth and try taper drugs alone. I have suggested that the NHS  creates a site like this one to help people. What they are proposing now is not enough. Doctors don't know enough yet.

Thanks for posting this link, Marmite.

 

I have a friend who's active in advocacy for benzo withdrawal and she was in contact with the researchers Friday and they said so far, they have received 220 responses, 80 from the UK. And that was over two days. Hopefully, more will come in over the next week. 

 

Just an FYI that the survey will close soon:  

 

The survey opens at 9am on 10 August 2017 will close at 5pm on 24 August 2017 BST.

Can as many people as possible please do this survey.

The good thing about this survey is there are heaps of places to 'explain' that means we don't leave them guessing or making assumptions.

I am not from UK.But we are all in the global village.I look forward for the benefit of future generations.So I filled the survey.Patients or clients are not informed by the doctors that how these medication works.Also not educating about careful tapering system.Even careful 10%taper leaving at insomnia.

I am looking forward for the harmless brain medication.

I had too. Reason being its not restricted to UK. They need to know whether its UK or not. Acknowledging  is their choice.

I would urge all UK members to participate in this important survey. It has the potential to influence NHS policy towards prescription drug withdrawal and could make this an issue that government will have to finally pay attention to.

 

The credibility of the results will depend on the number of people taking part. The net needs to be cast far and wide on this. If you are a member of one of the various mental health support groups outside of SA then you might want to consider posting a link on there as well.

Well said Dan (congratulations on being a moderator by the way ...I just noticed).

 

I join with Dan in URGING all people on this forum to do this survey.

If you only do one survey in your life then please make it this one!

This is a chance to have your/our  voice heard. This is a moment in time that is for us. As they say this is not the time to read history this is the time to make history and you/we have an opportunity to play a major part in this. 

 

I'm so pleased Alto has stuck this to the top of the page of the intros.

 

I wonder if its possible to have this link sent to every sa member. If its simply a matter of one push of the button then maybe that could be considered?

Fine idea, nz. As everyone knows, I very seldom send out mass e-mails. This is important, I'll send out an e-mail about it tomorrow.

Im not one to pm the owner of this site so heres an open pm.

 

Alto  just wanted to say thanks heaps for that terrific email you sent out.

I have a feeling it will stir a fantastic outcome and probably arouse a sleeping giant - members who are in a prolonged season of silence.

SA i see is already getting responses.

Not that the mods need any more work but i think this is going to cause a surge in survey completions hoorah!...and sa updates!

Im so excited about what will occur this week leading up to 24th aug.

Thanks heaps.
