No Panic helps with the anxiety from tranquilliser and medication withdrawal but we are unable to help with the medication itself. So we are happy to refer those who need help with the actual medication side of their problem to the Bristol & District Tranquilliser Project.
Bristol & District Tranquilliser Project is a voluntary sector organisation set up originally in 1985 to help those having problems with certain prescribed psychotropic medication (benzodiazepine tranquillisers/sleeping tablets, other sleeping tablets and antidepressants). Bristol & District Tranquilliser Project help people who are taking, who are considering taking or have recently withdrawn from this type of medication. The Bristol & District Tranquilliser Project is funded mainly by the Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group and work closely with the CCG to achieve our objectives.
Bristol & District Tranquilliser Project run a telephone helpline on 01179500020 from 10 am to 3 pm from Mondays to Thursdays. However there are occasions when the project experiences a high volume of calls, so if you are unable to get through please keep trying. Regretfully the project is not able to return calls.
For more people more local to the project they can access these services as well as the helpline:
- You can book in to see one of our counsellors for an assessment, where we can go through a reduction programme and discuss what your needs are and how we can support you.
- We provide individual one-to-one prescribed drugs counselling, mainly for those new to the Project and for those undergoing particularly severe withdrawal symptoms.
- We run self-help groups every week in which you can meet others who face similar problems and discuss your withdrawal programme.
- We have a drop-in service at Westbury 5 times a week for those in particular distress and are already using the services at the Project.
