Dear Madam, dear Sir,
we want to draw your attention to our new book "Coming off Psychiatric Drugs," now translated completely into the English language.
The world-wide first book about the issue "Successful coming down from psychiatric drugs" primarily addresses treated people who want to withdraw on their own decision. It also addresses their relatives and therapists. Millions of people are taking psychiatric drugs, for example Haloperidol, Prozac, Risperidone or Zyprexa. To them, detailed accounts of how others came off these substances without once again ending up in the in the doctor's office are of fundamental interest.
In this practice-book 28 people from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, England, Germany, Hungary, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Serbia & Montenegro, Sweden, Switzerland and the USA write about their experiences with withdrawal. Additionally, eight professionals, working in psychotherapy, medicine, psychiatry, social work, natural healing and even in a runaway-house, report on how they helped in the withdrawal process.
