Services we Provide


BAT helps those who are addicted to
benzodiazepines etc, and who wish to withdraw from them, to do so as comfortably as possible, and to help them make the necessary changes in life after withdrawal.

We aim to educate and inform all those who may come across the problem of benzodiazepine addiction, either personally or professionally, towards an
understanding of the difficulties caused by this drug’s actions and the compounding of these difficulties in withdrawal.

We also strive to influence services in their prescribing, managing and supporting of clients who take/want to withdraw from, these drugs.
