Benzo Support

Ras JacobsI offer emotional support to people who have made the decision to come off all psychiatric medications. Meetings occur via telephone and/or ZOOM with cameras off.

If you’re interested, the first step is to figure out a time that works for both of us.

Assuming our schedules are conducive to conversation, I will send an invoice and request payment for an initial conversation. I offer secure payment via credit card, VENMO or PayPal, whichever you prefer.

Our first conversation will last longer than subsequent conversations, generally around 90 minutes. During our time together, I will ask a lot of questions. I will learn your history and figure out how/why you wound up on benzodiazepines/psych meds in the first place.

I will listen to you carefully and offer some thoughts about where you are in the process and what I believe helped me to heal.

I can also send you some links to sites that may be of some use to you. (You might be doing some of these things already, but there are definitely things that helped me to heal faster and I’ve learned not to assume people know everything I know.)

If you enjoy speaking together and find the support helpful, we can make future appointments to have additional conversations. These conversations are either 60/75 or 90 minutes, and I offer a slide scale to meet your needs.

I only speak to one person a day, so I ask that you be patient with me when it comes to coordinating a time to talk.

I’m a Certified Recovery Peer Advocate, and I know that my time and lived expertise is just as valuable – if not more valuable than that of so-called experts.

There is a reason why this is happening to you, and you will come out the other side a better person.

I look forward to speaking with you.
