The Road Back: How to get off psychoactive drugs safely book cover image

Since 1999, The Road Back has been the most widely used outpatient drug withdrawal program in the world. Over 40,000 people have used this program to become drug free.

Many of you may have tried in the past to come off of psychotropic medications only to find it too overwhelming to cope with the anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, brain zaps, headaches or flu like symptoms. These side effects from withdrawing off of medications can be truly debilitating.
Many of you may be on a medication and simply don’t like the weight gain or the way it makes you feel. You may have anxiety and insomnia even though you are taking an anti-anxiety or sleep medication.

It is possible to take control and get your life back. Thousands of individuals have done just that by following the step by step guide laid out in The Road Back Program. This is the #1 out-patient withdrawal program in the world.


I want to thank you for your help. When I found your program, I was a total mess. After taking psychiatric drugs for over 20 years, and not feeling any better, I realized it was the drugs making me sick. None worked for long, so my doctor would cold turkey me and put me on another. They forgot to tell me that there would be withdrawal, and some of the medicines would actually cause you to be exactly what they said you were. I was labeled with GAD, major depression, bi-polar II, to name a few. It all started in 1989 with anxiety (just anxiety!) I had never been sick and did not know what was happening to me. After going to many doctors, I finally broke down and put myself in the hospital. Big mistake!!!! They started me on the drugs and it didn't end until I found your program. Two days ago I dropped my last med. I came off four. I still have a way to go, but I feel better now then I have in years. I will never have to hear another doctor say "If you ever get off these drugs, you will end up in a mental hospital." I believed that line for a long time. Thank you for help. I pray that many more find your site and are able to be free. Martha

I was on Prozac for 10 years and just could never withdraw. Every time I tried, the pain was too much and I'd always start the drug again.  Your program was so easy and worked just like you said it would!  Thank you! Now I have to face all the emotions I blocked for the last decade and I have to tell you, it feels very strange.  But it is wonderful to finally feel again. Thank you for making this available to the world.  You guys are the best!  I'll be forever grateful. Lisa M.

I am doing great on the Taper Program.  I have successfully gotten off of Elavil.  I had been on it for about 10 years.  I have tried in the past to go off cold turkey and I got so sick each time that I had to go back to it.  I finally realized it wasn't the new medications making me sick, it was withdrawal from Elavil.  (No dr. recognized my symptoms as withdrawal and I went to 3 different ones trying to get off of it and onto something with fewer side effects.)  I have followed the program as indicated and have had no withdrawal effects.  I am amazed.  I have been completely off for 10 days now.  Thank you for making this solution known to the general public. V.

I used the program to successfully taper off Klonopin very successfully with minimal problems. Am sleeping wonderfully without it. My brother is also using your program to titrate off methadone very slowly. Thanks, Donna

The program was extremely successful for me.  I have completely tapered off  Zoloft after being on it for 3 years. The omega 3 and vitamin E are part of my daily routine. Thanks. Kelly

I have now been off of Effexor for 2 months. I would not have been able to do it without this program. It has also stabilized my depression which is now controlled thru the "Amino Acid" combo. Thank you so much. Michele S.

This is day 8 tapering off Haldol and I feel better! I have my movement back in my body and I am not stiff anymore. I can see better and my ears feel normal. My mind is so much calmer. My family even sees the improvement!  I can't thank you enough - I'm getting my life back. Sonya R.

From the author:

AFTER ELEVEN YEARS of research, assisting tens of thousands of people to get off their psychoactive medication, this book is the final and closing chapter of the development of The Road Back Program. Not to say there will not be future advancements in this program, but the needed foundation for a psychoactive withdrawal program and health program is now firmly in place. The success rate of people now using this program is higher than ever imagined, the basic causes of drug withdrawal symptoms and the human health decline have now been discovered, and the solution is backed by scientific evidence.The program is simple, effective, and extremely powerful: when applied correctly. You too can have resounding success in getting off the medication and getting your life back.Based on extensive research, specific “nutrients” have been formulated for this program.

Their use, in conjunction with the full and complete program, have resulted in an estimated 98% success rate of people getting off psychoactive medication, while also enormously reducing the potential and feared side effects from withdrawal.What unwanted feelings come from you and what feelings do the medication generate? The program separates these confusing symptoms, and once this separation occurs, the real you will emerge.
