Breggins book to every health professional who deals with anyone taking psychiatric drugs. He gives highly useful information and reasons for stopping or avoiding them. Its an excellent one-stop source of information about psychiatric drug effects and withdrawal. Prescribers, therapists, patients, and families will benefit from this guidebook. Charles L. Whitfield, MDBestselling author of Healing the Child Within and many other booksPeter Breggin has more experience in safely withdrawing psychiatric patients from medication than any other psychiatrist.

In this book he shares his lifetime of experience. All of our patients deserve the benefit of our obtaining that knowledge. Bertram Karon, PhDProfessor of Psychology, Michigan State UniversityAuthor, The Psychotherapy of SchizophreniaFormer President of the Division of Psychoanalysis of the American Psychological AssociationThis is such an important book.

Describing the problem of withdrawal from psychiatric drugs in detail, and providing clear advice regarding how to deal with this problem as Peter has done so well in this book, is long overdue. For decades, the belief system that is mainstream psychiatry has denied the existence of withdrawal problems from the substances they prescribe so widely. In reality, withdrawal problems with psychiatric drugs is a common occurrence.

Because of psychiatrys reckless denial of this real and common problem, millions of people worldwide have not had the support and care they desperately need when attempting to come off psychiatric drugs, often been erroneously advised that these problems are confirmation of the existence of their supposed original so-called psychiatric illness.

He describes the many dangers of psychiatric medication in straightforward research-based and contextually nuanced terms.

Most helpfully, he articulates a method of empathic, person-centered psychotherapy as an alternative to the prevailing emotionally and system disengaged drug-centered approach. In this book, Dr. Breggin systematically outlines how to safely withdraw a patient from psychiatric medication with rich case examples drawn with the detail and sensitivity to individual and situational differences that reveal not only his extensive clinical experience, but his clear, knowledgeable, and compassionate vision of a more humane form of treatment. In this volume, Dr.

This is an indispensable text for both mental health trainees and experienced practitioners seeking a practical alternative to the dominant drug-centric paradigm. Gerald Porter, PhDVice President for Academic AffairsSchool of Professional Psychology at Forest InstituteThis much needed book and guide to psychiatric medication withdrawal is clearly written and easy to understand.

As people become more empowered and able to inform themselves about the effects of pharmaceuticals, practitioners will be called upon to wean their patients off of damaging medications. This book will provide that guidance. Thank you Dr. Breggin for having the courage to oppose conventional psychiatric thinking and the caring to
