Our Story…

Prescription Support team is a charity organisation that has been set up by 2 friends Jo & Helena.

The organisation has been established following their own experiences with side effects, withdrawals and long term treatment of prescription medications such as opioids, SSRI’s, SNRI’s, benzodiazepines, over the counter and online medication.

We firmly believe that it is each individual’s responsibility to have some knowledge and awareness when beginning a medication, whilst taking a medication and indeed, stopping a medication….PST can support you with that.

Through both personal experience and speaking with medical professionals, we have found that very little support exists for people who use, are dependent upon or infact wish to begin or taper a prescription medication.

We currently run support groups in Cardiff providing a sounding board, problem solving and an opportunity to check in on how PST members are feeling and the issues we face not only relating to prescription medications but regarding everyday life.

We not only supports individuals who are physically dependent, psychologically dependent or not dependent at all, we also support members who have addictive behaviors and work with the individuals in gaining more of an understanding around those behaviors.
