The Benzodiazepine Podcast
Laura Delano Of The Inner Compass Initiative On Recovery From Brain Injury Caused By Psych Drugs
September 22, 2022
Recovering from the brain injuries caused by long-term use of psych drugs, including benzodiazepines, is not easy. In fact, it is one of the most difficult challenges a person can face in life. Learning how to deal with the symptoms of protracted withdrawal can be made easier with proper support from members of a community who have experience and understanding.
Benzo withdrawal can be a nightmare. Especially when the withdrawal process drags out for weeks, months or even years. Protracted withdrawal from benzodiazepines and other psych drugs is extremely difficult to tolerate.

Laura Delano is working hard to bring people together, to support each other and to share the tools that have helped to get through this difficult challenge. The Inner Compass Initiative is dedicated to helping to educate professionals and the public, and it has programs to connect people together who are best suited to help and support each other.

Laura Delano is the Executive Director of Inner Compass Initiative (ICI), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people make more informed choices about taking and coming off psychiatric drugs. Laura also consults with individuals and families looking for support during the medication withdrawal process. She has spoken and led workshops in Europe and across North and South America, and is at work on a memoir about her experiences called UNSHRUNK. Find out more at
