I am writing this report to warn others. I went for drug and alcohol treatment at a place called Recovery Resources Inc in Florida for my excessive drinking, it was destroying both my physical health and mental health and it was time to stop. I wanted no part in starting a lifetime of psychiatric drugging and becoming a chronic mental patient. This Doctor claimed I have some sort of "dual diagnosis" just days after my last drink.
Drug abuse, including ALCOHOL !! and prescription drugs can induce symptomatology which resembles mental illness. This can occur both in the intoxicated state and also during the withdrawal state. A protracted withdrawal syndrome can also occur with symptoms persisting for months after cessation of use. In most cases these drug induced psychiatric disorders fade away with prolonged abstinence and I knew this was no time to start psychiatric drugging with nueroleptic antipsychotics or "mood stabilizers" or any other psychiatric drugs for the sypmtoms like anxiety and insomnia that come in the first few weeks or months of drying out and getting sober, let alone accept his "Dual diagnosis" and become a chronic mental patient. I would rather drink alcohol.
Psychiatric drugs cause withdrawal reactions, including the antidepressants, tranquilizers, antipsychotic drugs and 'mood stabilizers' (mood removers) .
Of course nobody wants to exist as a zombie or likes all the side effects then trys to stop taking them.
Then then the individuals condition grows markedly worse within days or weeks after stopping the psychiatric drug, this is almost always due to a withdrawal reactions. However, misinformed doctors , misled parents, Drug and alcohol treamnent centers and even patients belive that this is evidence that the individual "needs" the drug even more, when in fact its caused by these drugs in the first place and he or she just needs time to recover from withdrawal effects.Thats is how psychiatrists MAKE chronic mental patients alot of the time, not me.
This Doctor decided it was a good idea to disharge me from treatment during post acute withdrawal from alcohol in front of everyone if I didnt take his lobotamy pills for what ever psych label he gave me.
About my INFORMED CONSENT to treatment, While posing as authorities on the mind and mental health, psychiatry has no scientific basis for any of its treatments or methods. Psychiatric disorders are not medical diseases. There are no lab tests, brain scans, X-rays or chemical imbalance tests that can verify any mental disorder is a physical condition. This is not to say that people do not get depressed, or that people cant experience emotional or mental duress, but psychiatry has repackaged these emotions and behaviors as disease in order to sell drugs. This is a brilliant marketing campaign, but it is not science and I am not a lab rat.
All psychiatrists have in common that when they are caught on camera or on microphone, they cower and admit that there are no such things as chemical imbalances/diseases, or examinations or tests for them. What they do in practice, lying in every instance, abrogating [revoking] the informed consent right of every patient and drugging them in the name of treatment is nothing short of criminal. The theories are held on to not only because there is nothing else to take their place, but also because they are useful in promoting drug treatment.
I understood that a DSM-IV diagnostic label had been assigned to me, based on this doctors subjective judgment of my speech, manner, and behavior during our meeting, which lasted approximately 10 minutes. I understand that although that doctor says that I am sick or that I have a treatable illness or disease, he or she is just using a figure of speech and cannot establish, with any test or procedure known to medical science that I in fact "have" the "illness" implied by the diagnostic labels.
I am still sober without any chemical lobotamy pills or bogus labels given to me days after my last drink by this quack who throughs his patients out of treatment as a lesson to the others on "medication compliance". Dual diagnosis treatment is a scam.
