1. Do I have to pay BreakingBenzo?

No. We invite top providers of evidence-based behavioral health care to become Lyra Providers, at no cost to you.

2. How does the Breaking Benzo service work?

Members enroll in the monthly service. Our service and licensed professional behavioral health providers match each member to a therapist who can best meet the member’s needs.

3. What is required of me as a Breaking Benzo Provider?

We ask that you agree and are aligned with our best practices guidelines and protocol for tapering and withdrawal management. We ask that you provide timely access to members we refer to you. Typically that means a response within 48 hours and an appointment within 7 working days (if non-urgent).

Breaking Benzo carefully matches members to the providers who we think can best meet their needs. However, providers can decline to serve a member if they do not feel that they are qualified to serve that member.
