  1. Hi Dr Huff. I followed your story and reread it today in an effort to help my son Noah find help with his continuing challenges post valium taper. Noah was prescribed 3-4 mg Klonopin for about 15 years and struggled to taper until he found a doctor who encouraged a slow taper. He worked with a. Micro taper schedule and successfully tapered and has been free of benzodiazepine for several years. However at some point he returned to social drinking of alcohol and has struggled to remain abstinent, plus he has become seriously depressed and almost phobic socially. He has tried some psychotropic meds with either terrible side effects or no benefit. There’s much more to the story, but my goal is to help him find a psychiatrist who understands his post withdrawal challenges and can help tease out what is due to that versus the reemergence of the original problem for which the benzodiazepines were originally prescribed. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
