books on benzo w/d


Recommended Posts

Hello Matheral,


Here are my favorite books on the subject of benzos.



I am the type of person who seeks to know what is happening and why, it brings comfort to me. I hope it does the same for you.


I put together some information that may be helpful. If you are interested in reviewing a web site for information the best one is benzo.org.uk. It may be worth checking out.



1. “The Accidental Addict” by Di Poritt & Di Russell, 2006

2. “Benzo-Wise, A Recovery Companion” by Baylissa Frederick, 2009 (She has an updated version from 2010)

3. “The Benzo Book, Getting Safely off Tranquilizers” by Jack Hobson-Dupont, 2006

4. "Your Drug May Be Your Problem, How and Why to Stop Taking Psychiatric Medications" 2007 fully revised and updated edition, by Peter Breggin, M.D. (a Psychiatrist)

5. “Brain- Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry” by Peter R. Breggin, MD, 2008



I bought some of his books on Barnes & Nobel.com. They may also be available on Amazon as well yet, some of these books I was only able to find them at the web site below.



Benzo Book link:



The Ashton Manual, you can print this out for free. There are 4 or 5 chapters, each one is printed out separately to get the entire manual.




Peter Breggin M.D.  has a web site this research article is from there. I found this to be helpful as well.

"Intoxication anosognosia: The Spellbinding Effect of Psychiatric Drugs" (PDF), Ethical Human Psychology and Psychiatry, 8, 201-215, 2006.


If the link to the Spellbinding does not work, you can go to Peter Breggin’s web site and look under Scientific Papers.
