The Need

Benzodiazepine use is a serious problem in the United States. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), more than 30 percent of opioid-related drug overdoses also involve benzodiazepines. NIDA reported that between 1996 and 2013, the number of adults filling a benzodiazepine prescription increased 67 percent, from 8.1 million to 13.5 million. The American Psychiatric Association (APA) stated that benzodiazepine use is highest among 50-64-year-olds.

With the increased percentage of patients using benzodiazepines, as well as their dangerous long-term effects, we created the Gallus Benzodiazepine Taper Program to ensure patients can safely taper off benzodiazepines with industry-leading medical care.

Because of the time it takes for the impact of benzodiazepines to diminish, it can be physically and psychologically taxing for patients to go through withdrawal. That’s why our program can last from three weeks to six months depending on the patient’s specific medication history. Our benzodiazepine taper program involves both medical and behavioral therapy consultation and encourages patients to enter into aftercare, typically a long-term rehabilitation facility. In addition to a personalized treatment plan, each patient’s recovery plan includes aftercare planning which identifies resources and next steps toward long-term recovery.
