This review by Bertram Karon, PhD, makes a crucial point: “Peter Breggin has more experience in safely withdrawing psychiatric patients from medication than any other psychiatrist. In this book he shares his lifetime of experience.”
This is the first book to establish guidelines and assist prescribers and therapists in withdrawing their patients from psychiatric drugs. It describes a method developed by Breggin throughout years of clinical experience, consultations with experienced colleagues and scientific research. Based on person-centered collaboration, this method builds on a cooperative and empathic team effort involving prescribers, therapists, patients and their families or support network.
