Fantastic article! Thank you so much for posting it, [...]. Much respect to both authors -- to Carrie, for having the courage to tell her story openly and honestly, and to Dr. Wright, for his insight, intelligence, experience, attention to detail, and for his clear desire to do the right thing and to help people. I salute them both.

Convincing healthcare professionals at a top teaching hospital to learn more about benzodiazepines is a MAJOR accomplishment as is getting your family doctor to say I believe you.   It is through the efforts of determined and courageous individuals such as yourself that progress will be made.  Well done and thank you!
