Virtual Watch Party (Take Your Pills- XANAX) Pro-Social Event, YPR-Richmond, VA

March 2, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 6:45 pm EST

Virtual Event Virtual Event

YPR chapters regularly host fun pro-social events that are open to everyone in the community, but specifically people in recovery and their allies as one of our core activities.

Recovery from Benzodiazepines is not talked about enough! “For years, the rates of anxiety — and the use of a fast-acting prescription drug to alleviate its symptoms — have been on the rise. The pandemic, experts say, has dramatically pumped up those numbers. A new Netflix film “Take Your Pill: Xanax” spotlights the alarming number of Americans using the medication Xanax to calm their anxiety.” Young People in Recovery -RVA will be hosting a two-part series; watching and discussing the new Netflix Documentary “Take Your Pills – XANAX” followed by open discussions within the group and plenty of time for personal story telling. YPR-RVA’s Chapter Lead Coordinator, a person in long term recovery from Xanax, Ashley, will be leading this. With no real idea how serious this was, being diagnosed with Panic Disorder and medicated for a decade starting at 16 years old was the catalyst for all of her addiction and mental health struggles in the years to come later on. This will be held on Tuesday, February the 28th at 5:30 pm and Thursday, March 2nd at 5:30pm.
