Components for a Good Neuroleptic Withdrawal Program
The United States desperately needs good programs to help people withdraw from neuroleptics, that is, antipsychotic drugs. From all I have seen and heard, there aren’t any — none at least that can reputably claim to get good results on a fairly consistent basis. Again and again I find myself challenged to envision such a program, and in reply to the challenge I have broken down this hypothetical program into various components, each of which I will explore in turn. I do not believe that any particular withdrawal program needs to have all of these components, though I do see some of them, as I will explain, as vital.
