“I truly believe no treatment will work on a person with an addiction if the patient hasn’t fully given themselves over to the fact that they have a disease that does not heal itself.” Margaret F.’s words capture a core belief of the traditional type of treatment program she attended, one common in 12-step-based facilities.

In a study on mice published Monday in the journal JNeurosci, scientists report that long-term marijuana use does indeed change the … Continue reading Long-Term Marijuana Use Changes Brain at the Cellular Level, Say Scientists

By Gary G. Kohls, MD, guest to Natural Blaze I recently had a dialogue with a person who had emailed me about a friend of hers who had been mis-treated for years by drug-prescribing psychiatrists. The psychiatrists – and their alarming and illogical drugging – had made him worse and worse and eventually totally disabled over the years. Because of the high probability that the drugs he had taken over the years – known to be both neurotoxic and addictive – were also brain-damaging and dementia-inducing, we discussed some things that perhaps could be helpful (see the information below). The … Continue reading One Of The Many Victims Of America’s Psychiatric And Psychopharmaceutical Industries
