A. Behavior therapy is the treatment of choice for social phobia.
Benzodiazepines can be used to reduce the associated anxiety. A
beta-blocker such as propranolol can also help reduce the autonomic
hyperarousal that occurs in social settings. In addition, some SSRIs
are also useful.

Specific phobias (social anxiety disorder) >>>>>cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
