Madness Radio: Benzodiazepine Recovery with Matt Samet

MIA Blogger Will Hall interviewed fellow MIA Blogger Matt Samet in August 2013 about his experiences with benzodiazepine recovery on Madness Radio. “Are Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan and other benzodiazepines really more addictive than heroin? How can these common drugs for anxiety actually worsen the symptoms they’re prescribed to treat? What are the dangers of protracted withdrawal? Matt Samet, former professional rock climber, Outside Magazine writer, and author of Death Grip: A Climber’s Escape From Benzo Madness, discusses his recovery journey from psychiatric drug addiction.”
