It has been some years since I saw you. I have never prescribed narcotics. I try to use benzodiazepines only after less addictive medications have been unsuccessful. Xanax is not typically addictive under 2 mg daily but some people develop a tolerance. I try to refer people with addictions to area community resources. I do not have therapists nor NPs working for me and try to give each patient my full attention and care. I am aware of your concerns and work to give the best care to each person.
