> Jay when I worked in detox they would detox people from alchohol and xanax with valium. Starting at a very high dose and decreasing the amount each day . And in around five days they would take their last dose of 5mg of valium and be discharged. What happened when the 5mg wore off? Love Phillipa

Phillipa, I'm not Jay, but detox facilities are famous for not withdrawing benzos properly. They do it much too rapidly. Heather Ashton may be conservative in her approach to withdrawal, but she has successfully helped many people off of benzos slowly. I take xanax and would never go to detox to withdraw.

I am sure that many of those people who were discharged after taking the last 5mg. of valium suffered greatly after returning home. If I tapered off valium, I would go down to the last .05 mg. and *then* jump off.
