THE RIGHT TO BE INFORMED
There are numerous medical and non-harmful alternatives to psychiatric diagnoses and psychiatric drugs, including standard medical care that does not require a subjective psychiatric label or mind-altering psychiatric drugs. Prescription drug addiction is the fastest growing drug problem in the U.S., and with 1 in 5 Adult Americans currently taking some form of psychiatric drug, and the addictive nature of these drugs, this page is for those looking for safe withdrawal or alternatives to psychiatric drugs.
