I used to be a big believer in the benefits of psychotropic medication. I used to laugh at the ridiculous scientologists and their irrational fear and hatred of psychiatry.
All it takes is a little research to realize that psychiatrists and pharmaceutical companies are ONLY interested in making money.
Study after study showing that neuroleptics, benzos, SSRIs, SNRIs, and other psychotropics do permanent damage to the brain. Study after study showing that long term outcomes for patients who are not medicated are FAR better than for patients who are on long term medication treatment. And yet the APA continues to push the medical model and tout the benefits of psychopharmacology.
NEVER believe for one second that the drug companies and their pill pushing reps (psychiatrists) seek to help people. They don't have anything other than money as their number one priority.
