Find a Benzodiazepine Doctor

Media and Government Officials: Please do not contact the prescribers on our list for interviews or government engagements. Many do not claim expertise on the subject or respond to these types of inquiries. Instead, contact us directly. We can help you.

 We offer a list of medical professional who may prescribe while patients attempt a slow taper. They usually cannot assist with post cessation issues.

Some doctors on our list are extremely skilled in cessation methods and some are simply willing to prescribe based on a patient’s own taper plan. Unfortunately, medical recognition and help for protracted withdrawal issues is nearly nonexistent.

If you would like to recommend a benzodiazepine knowledgable provider, or are a benzodiazepine knowledgable provider willing to do a slow, patient led taper please contact us. ​

We oppose rehab or detox facilities for compliant patients. Please read How to Find Benzodiazepine Tapering Help for common tips and pitfalls to help you succeed in finding a prescriber to assist with your taper. Read Tapering Strategies and Solutions to learn about tapering options and what a safe taper entails.

Paul Abramson, M.D.
My Doctor Medical Group
450 Sutter Street, Suite 840
San Francisco, California 94108
www.mydoctorsf.com/benzodiazepine-dependence-treatment
(415) 963-4431
Notes: The ideal patient lives in or within commuting distance of San Francisco, CA for in-person visits. Dr. Abramson does have some patients who will travel to and reside in San Francisco temporarily (at least a few months) to get started under his care who then return home to continue tapering outpatient. Dr. Abramson does not do telemedicine but will do one-time consults with benzodiazepine/polypharmacy patients where he develops a plan that the patient can implement with their own local provider(s). My Doctor Medical Group is out of network.
