Rescue Drugs

Rescue Drugs

If you missed us (the CCHR St. Louis booth) at the Working Women’s Survival Show at the St. Charles Convention Center in February, we want you to know that we had a blast talking to hundreds of people about the dangers of psychiatric drugs and other psychiatric treatments.

One of the interesting results of this exposure was our new awareness of something called “rescue drugs.”

A rescue drug is one intended to relieve symptoms immediately, in contrast to other drugs which are intended to cure a medical problem or to prevent or reduce symptoms over a more extended period. It generally refers to the sudden onset of undesirable symptoms, rather than those that may already be present.

In this context we spoke with people who agreed with us that psychiatric drugs are bad for you, but they still carry around their psychiatric rescue drugs, such as an anti-anxiety drug in case they suddenly have a panic attack, for example.

From this we might observe that, 1) the root cause of their difficulty has not yet been found, and 2) while the message may be getting out that psychotropic drugs are bad for you, the message that there are effective non-drug alternatives is still somewhat suppressed.

Be sure to attend our upcoming seminar about healthy alternatives.

The First Alternative is Do No Harm!

The Second Alternative is Find and Fix The Cause!

Relieve the physical stress associated with mental stress

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

CCHR STL Public Seminar

No one denies that people can have difficult problems in their lives, that at times they can be mentally unstable. People in desperate circumstances must be provided proper and effective health care.
Learn about physical stressors that exacerbate mental symptoms.

Learn about health care alternatives to harmful psychiatric drugs and treatments.

This is not to say that mental troubles are physical. They are not. Psychiatrists argue that mental disorders are biologically based to justify using treatments that cause more physical stress and further overwhelm the mind.

Relieve the Stress!


You are invited to attend the next Citizens Commission on Human Rights of St. Louis FREE public seminar.

It is vital that our families, friends, and associates know about healthy alternatives to harmful psychiatric “treatment.” You need to know there are alternatives to psychiatric fraud and abuse.

Saturday, 5 April 2014

Noon to 3:00 PM (lunch will be provided)

Location: 2nd Floor auditorium of the Church of Scientology of Missouri, 6901 Delmar Blvd., University City, Missouri 63130 — just west of the U City City Hall.

RSVP TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT NOW! Email your RSVP to CCHRSTL@CCHRSTL.ORG.

Feel free to forward this invitation and to bring others to the seminar.

File a Complaint about psychiatric Abuse Today

File a Complaint about psychiatric Abuse Today

We are delighted to inform you that if you have experienced abuse by a psychiatrist, you can now file a complaint in any state in a few minutes.

With thanks to PsychSearch.net, this complaint form,

http://www.psychsearch.net/complaints/

is now available. It will help you send a complaint to the proper authorities in any state in the U.S.

Vulnerable people who have sought help from psychiatrists and psychologists have been falsely diagnosed and forced to undergo unwanted and often harmful psychiatric methods.

The real problem is that psychiatrists fraudulently diagnose life’s problems as an “illness” and stigmatize unwanted behavior or study problems as “diseases.”

In case there is any doubt, here are some examples of what constitutes psychiatric fraud or abuse:

False diagnosis of mental illness, rape, sexual assault, physical abuse, mis-diagnosis, harmful and unnecessary drugging, involuntary commitment, electroshock therapy, psychosurgery, harmful restraints, threatened with committal or punishment for refusal of treatment, coerced into hospitalization or treatment, neglect, insurance fraud (fraudulent billings to an insurance company, Medicare or Medicaid — such as submitting a bill when no service was performed.)

Psychiatric curricula and tests in our schools destroy morality and values as evidenced by the rising incidents of crime, drug abuse, and suicide among children and adolescents. The bottom line is that all psychiatric “treatments” are harmful and can cause crime.

Here are the currently defined categories of fraud and abuse on the PsychSearch.net Complaint Form:

  • Coerced into “Treatment”
  • Confidentiality Break
  • Crime
  • Drug Trafficking
  • Falsified medical records
  • Financial Irregularity
  • Forced Drugging
  • Fraud (Financial, insurance or otherwise)
  • Harmful Drug Effects
  • Harmful Effects of Electroconvulsive Therapy, (ECT)
  • Harmful Effects of Lobotomy
  • Inappropriate prescribing for non-medical reasons
  • Involuntary Commitment
  • No Biological Test for “Mental Illness”
  • No Informed Consent
  • No Testing for Underlying Physical Condition
  • Physical Illness Misdiagnosed as “Mental Illness”
  • Questionable Billing
  • Restraints
  • Sexual Misconduct
  • Shock Treatment
  • Threats
  • Told I have a “chemical imbalance”
  • Unethical Conduct
  • Unprofessional conduct
  • Use of Force
  • Something else that didn’t seem quite right

To help you formulate your thoughts for filing a complaint, you can download the CCHR psychiatric Abuse Questionnaire by clicking here.

Please let us know when you file a complaint. Feel free to forward this information to someone you think might have a desire to file a complaint.

ADHD and Fluoride

ADHD and Fluoride

A recently published scientific study links various developmental disabilities with fluoride poisoning.

[Lancet Neurol 2014;13:330-38; February 15, 2014; “Neurobehavioral effects of developmental toxicity”]

Here are some salient quotes.

“Neurodevelopmental disabilities, including autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments, affect millions of children worldwide, and some diagnoses seem to be increasing in frequency. Industrial chemicals that injure the developing brain are among the known causes for this rise in prevalence. …epidemiological studies have documented…developmental neurotoxicants” including fluoride.

“Strong evidence exists that industrial chemicals widely disseminated in the environment are important contributors to what we have called the global, silent pandemic of neurodevelopmental toxicity. The developing human brain is uniquely vulnerable to toxic chemical exposures, and major windows of developmental vulnerability occur in utero and during infancy and early childhood. During these sensitive life stages, chemicals can cause permanent brain injury at low levels of exposure that would have little or no adverse effect in an adult.”

“…studies of children exposed to fluoride in drinking water…suggests an average IQ decrement of about seven points in children exposed to raised fluoride concentrations.”

“Developmental neurotoxicity causes brain damage that is too often untreatable and frequently permanent.”

“The antisocial behaviour, criminal behaviour, violence, and substance abuse that seem to result from early-life exposures to some neurotoxic chemicals result in increased needs for special educational services, institutionalisation, and even incarceration.”

“Our very great concern is that children worldwide are being exposed to unrecognized toxic chemicals that are silently eroding intelligence, disrupting behaviours, truncating future achievements, and damaging societies.”

We might also point out that fluorine is a significant component of Prozac (fluoxetine hydrochloride, C17H18F3NO•HCL) and Paxil (paroxetine hydrochloride, C19H20FNO3•HCl•1/2H2O), both common psychiatric antidepressants with rather damaging side effects.

Admittedly, fluorine in chemical combination may behave differently than fluorine or fluoride (an ion of fluorine) alone, and there are those who argue that this difference is significant. The actual evidence, however, indicates otherwise. Regardless of any effect fluoride may have on teeth, it is a toxic substance and should be treated with caution, especially as a major component of a psychiatric drug.
