Treatment of Benzodiazepine Use Disorder

We approach treatment of Benzodiazepine use disorders with a multi-pronged approach:

Benzodiazepine treatment is often particularly difficult for patients. A successful benzodiazepine detoxification requires a slow taper, a close therapeutic relationship between the physician and the patient, as well as regular office visits and phone follow-ups. Dr. Madhava maintains a close relationship with her patients in order to maximize the potential for successful taper from benzodiazepines.
