Dr. Chris Pagnani has a great deal of experience treating individuals for various struggles, including Alcohol Abuse and Dependence, Opiate Abuse and Dependence, Benzodiazepine Abuse and Dependence and Stimulant Abuse and Dependence. He maintains additional certification with the DEA to provide MAT services (medication assisted treatment for opiate dependence). He additionally, has specialization in tapering individuals off of Psychiatric medications (for example, Effexor or Venlafaxine, Ambien or Zolpidem, Xanax or Alprazolam and Klonopin or Clonazepam (when patients are taking these medications as prescribed, but having difficulty weaning off of them, due to withdrawal). His office is located in Philadelphia, PA in the Rittenhouse Square District.
Treatment is discreet and professional, and many of Dr. Pagnani’s patients are professional individuals in the Philadelphia area, who prefer out-of-network services, without insurance involvement for privacy.
Treatment is highly individualized, and a discussion with our treatment team is required before scheduling, as certain struggles (or severities of illness) may benefit from a higher level of care (inpatient detoxification for example).
Dr. Pagnani will be happy to collaborate with your therapist (or provide resources to obtain a therapist in the Philadelphia area). Therapy can be a vital component of a patient’s treatment plan, particularly if one is struggling with a substance use disorder.
