Donate to the
World Tapering Day Project

Your donation to the World Tapering Day project 
helps us increase awareness of the fact that antidepressants,


benzodiazepines, sleeping medication, mood stabilizers and opioids need to be tapered much more slowly than most doctors want to admit... and most patients realise.

Tapering too fast can cause serious harm. We  know that quite a large percentage of people using psychotropic medication worldwide, will run into difficulties when they eventually try to stop using it.


Meanwhile, national health services, governments and the pharmaceutical industry stubbornly refuse to take any meaningful action or even acknowledge that there is a problem.

The aim of World Tapering Day is to increase awareness of the importance of slower tapers and the dangers of tapering too fast. Also, we aim to improve access to proper tapering medication for everybody.

Thank you for supporting World Tapering Day!

World Tapering Day is not an organisation in itself; it is a project initiated by two Dutch patients advocacy organisations: the Vereniging Afbouwmedicatie, (Association for Tapering Medication, Netherlands) and Stichting Opiaten Afbouwen (Association for Tapering Opioids, Netherlands).

All donations will go to Vereniging Afbouwmedicatie and be used exclusively for funding the World Tapering Day project.

Vereniging Afbouwmedicatie is registered as a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) in the Netherlands.
