The Center for Network Therapy (CNT) is led by Indra Cidambi, M.D. She is widely recognized as the leading addiction specialist in America. Dr. Cidambi is Board Certified in General Psychiatry and double Board certified in Addiction Medicine – ASAM and ABPN. After her residency in Psychiatry at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Cidambi completed a Fellowship in Addiction Medicine from New York University/Bellevue Hospital. Dr. Cidambi has deep experience working with individuals afflicted with the disease of addiction, as she has been practicing Addiction Medicine since 2004.
Previous to Dr. Cidambi founding CNT, she was the Director of Chemical Dependency at Summit Oaks Hospital in Summit, New Jersey. Previous to that she was an attending physician at Carrier Clinic, a leading psychiatric and addiction treatment facility located in Belle Mead, New Jersey.
Dr. Cidambi founded Center for Network Therapy (CNT) in 2010 to offer Intensive Outpatient (IOP) services. Later, when New Jersey’s Dept. of Health made licensing for Ambulatory, or Outpatient Detoxification available, she guided CNT to obtain the first license to offer Ambulatory Detoxification and Outpatient Withdrawal Management services for alcohol withdrawal, anesthetic withdrawal, benzodiazepine withdrawal and opiate withdrawal.
Since 2013, Dr. Cidambi has worked tirelessly to design and fine-tune the outpatient detoxification model for all substances. Managing patients experiencing alcohol withdrawal or benzodiazepine withdrawal was especially challenging due to the risk of seizures and stroke. However, she not only proved that the model was safe for detoxing off of all substances, she also delivered superior clinical results! A study by CNT showed that 90+ day sobriety rates for patients completing ambulatory, or outpatient detoxification was greater than that of inpatient. ASAM, the addiction medicine boards, awarded Dr. Cidambi a plaque for innovating to the Ambulatory Detoxification and Outpatient Withdrawal Management levels of care and proving it to be safe and effective.
Dr. Cidambi serves as the President of the New Jersey chapter of ASAM, the addiction board for doctors specializing in addiction treatment. New Jersey’s Governor, Phil Murphy, has nominated CNT’s Medical Director, Indra Cidambi, M.D., to the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, or GCADA. This is further testament to Dr. Cidambi’s contribution to the advancement of treatment for Addiction. Once confirmed, Dr. Cidambi will be the only physician specializing in addiction medicine in GCADA and her focus will continue to be to ensure that the citizens of the State of New Jersey have access to the widest range of addiction treatment options and the most effective addiction treatment.
