Summary This guide outlines a treatment programme for individuals who have difficulties with anxiety and panic to discontinue using medication, specifically benzodiazepines otherwise known as minor tranquilizers.

Many people wish to taper their use of these medicines for various reasons including a planned pregnancy, personal preference, bothersome side effects. Using the programme in this therapist guide, clients are provided with the tools and knowledge to stop their anxiety medication successfully
