Benzodiazepine Information Coalition organized this resource to aid providers and patients in learning more about benzodiazepine cessation and where they may find support. We do not provide individual patient support. Our organization advocates for slow tapers for those patients who have chosen to come off benzodiazepines. We oppose forced cessation and detox facilities for compliant patients.

Find A Benzodiazepine Tapering Cooperative Provider
Medical providers who are open to slow, patient-guided tapers are encouraged to fill out our Benzodiazepine Tapering Cooperative Providers Application. Patients who wish to recommend their provider can complete our Patient Recommendation form.
Support services encompass a range of paid offerings including coaching, counseling, and family support. Support services are non-medical, and not authorized to issue benzodiazepine prescriptions or provide medical guidance. For details about the services provided by each listing, we recommend contacting providers directly. Visit our Non-Medical Support Sponsorship Information page to learn how to join this list.
Benzodiazepine Withdrawal Taper Coaching
Taper coaching is not a substitute for medical or mental healthcare. Taper coaches cannot provide prescriptions or assume responsibility for medical care. Taper coaches can offer valuable tips, resources, information, support and education to the client and even collaborate with the existing medical team, if requested. Visit our Sponsorship Information page to learn how to join this list as a taper coach.
Complementary and Alternative Services
Studies are very limited with regard to how complementary and/or alternative services/ medical care may affect benzodiazepine injury/withdrawal syndromes. There are no FDA-approved complementary or alternative medications, supplements, therapies and/or modalities to aid with benzodiazepine injury/withdrawal specifically. However, some benzo-affected individuals wish to try and/or anecdotally report a benefit from some of these treatments/modalities. The individuals/practitioners listed below are benzo-aware and working in a complementary/alternative space. Before trying any medication, supplement and/or therapy, BIC recommends you research its safety and/or effectiveness.
