    The Center for Network Therapy (CNT) is led by Indra Cidambi, M.D., who has been recognized for her innovations in addiction treatment. Although opiate withdrawal was sometimes treated in an outpatient setting, she was the first to introduce outpatient treatment for alcohol withdrawal and benzodiazepine withdrawal. Besides lending her expertise to numerous media outlets, she has also been a prolific writer on topics that concern addiction and treatment.

    Below you will find articles, op-eds and opinion pieces that explain new or emerging substances of abuse, new medications that may impact treatment and analysis of addiction treatment options.
