I'm finding many, many psychiatric patients are addicted to benzos. I'd like to do an educational group suitable for patients in an acute care inpatient setting. They only stay about 5 days.
Can anyone give me ideas on materials I can use. Are there any videos or handouts I can get? I'd like to address the physiological and psychological aspects of addiction and how to deal with withdrawal. Of course, as a nurse with very little time, I'd need to fit it into about an hour! Still, anything is better than nothing in my opinion.
Thanks for any information.
