Advantages of Breaking Benzo

Clinically Proven Tapering Protocol.

Our clinical protocol is founded on clinical science based on decades of research. Dr. Anna Lembke, MD is our Chief Medical Advisor and a world-renowned expert in the field of addiction, dependence and tapering. She currently also serves as Chief of the Stanford Addiction Medicine Dual Diagnosis Clinic. Our treatment plans have been crafted under her guidance and expertise. Our program is as effective as in-person counseling according to several studies.

Fewer no shows or missed appointments.

When suffering from withdrawal symptoms, your patients are distressed, anxious and sleepless. With Breaking Benzo, they are more likely to see the psychiatrists because they will meet remotely from the comfort of their homes. Industry telehealth no show rate is 3.5% and significantly lower than the industry average of 30-40%.


More flexible hours & Greater accessibility.

Video counseling makes it more convenient for Breaking Benzo to offer sessions to patients on weekends and evenings, thus improving compliance. You can refer patients who might otherwise not be able to meet, because they live far away, have trouble finding childcare, are homebound, travel frequently, or are just busy.

Collaborate to reduce your load and provide total care.

The Breaking Benzo team collaborates closely with you and your staff to ensure we are working as a team to help your patient. We will send you progress reports and inform you of any medication changes, as necessary. This will reduce a huge load off you and your staff's plate while working together to provide total care to your patients.

Breaking Benzo is built and backed by physicians and medical professionals from the world's most prominent medical institutions
