Podcast: Psychosocial interventions to reduce sedative use, abuse and dependence

The Cochrane Drugs and Alcohol Group prepares and maintains reviews of ways to help people who harmfully use, abuse or are dependent on drugs, both legal and illegal. In a new Cochrane Review in May 2015, Catherine Darker from Trinity College Dublin in Ireland, and colleagues, looked at the effects of psychosocial interventions for treating people experiencing these problems with benzodiazepines. She tells us what they found in this podcast.
