A new program called the Clarity Project, which aims to help people addicted to sleeping pills reduce their usage, has been extended to all surgeries in North Kirklees in the UK, as reported by the Spenborough Guardian.

The Clarity Project began in six GP practices and has now been extended to all surgeries in the district.

After a one-year trial at a Cleckheaton practice, half of the people supported stopped taking the drugs and half now manage on a lower dose.

North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which is leading the campaign, says around 100 patients are expected to benefit from the increased support every year.
