I'm curious though, if benzo buddies has a policy about not giving out personal information, then how are these people able to make documentaries with their names and arrangements made, etc?

I assume contact was made away from BB because I am unaware of an approach made to BB by the documentary makers. There are several outside organisations (two in particular), Facebook groups, and probably other avenues too where they might make contact.

Oh ok, I've never looked into other groups. I've been in my own delusional world for the last three and a half years and the only place I check in from time to time is benzo buddies.

Well, when it comes to independent forum support groups, there really is only BB (in English, at least). But there are other places where contact might be made.

I just finished watching the documentary, which was excellent and hopefully via it's message it will spare a lot of people from the suffering benzos often bring.

Great to see the word getting out. As someone who often can't function during my taper, I wish there was more emphasis on the intensity of symptoms and potential for long-term extreme misery. There were some mentions of just how bad things can get, but they were presented "softly", if that makes sense.

I will be sharing this with as many people as possible. The truth shall set you free.

I watched the documentary and appreciated the nod to Heather Ashton and her manual.  I wish they had spent more time on the withdrawal aspect, such as explaining the four phases and various methods of tapering. 

Overall, it was just okay.
