Say No to Drugs

Diagnosing and labeling children with “diseases” like Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Bipolar Disorder is the most disruptive and destructive force in our schools today.

There is no biological basis for these disorders – no blood test, no brain scan, no physical evidence whatsoever to show the existence of these “diseases.”

“Despite more than two hundred years of intensive research, no commonly diagnosed psychiatric disorders have proven to be either genetic or biological in origin, including schizophrenia, major depression, manic-depressive disorder, the various anxiety disorders, and childhood disorders such as attention-deficit hyperactivity. At present there are no known biochemical imbalances in the brain of typical psychiatric patients—until they are given psychiatric drugs.”— Peter Breggin, MD, Harvard-trained psychiatrist and former consultant at the National Institute of Mental Health who has been called “The Conscience of Psychiatry”

Psychologists, medical practitioners, guidance counselors, teachers, parents and even the students themselves use subjective quesionnaires about feelings and behavior to determine whether or not they have one of these “diseases.” They are then sent to a psychiatrist who invariably prescribes heavy mind-altering drugs. In recent years some states allow psychologists to prescribe medication.

“Virtually anyone at any given time can meet the criteria for bipolar disorder or ADHD. Anyone. And the problem is everyone diagnosed with even one of these ‘illnesses’ triggers the pill dispenser.” — Dr. Stefan Kruszewski, Psychiatrist

The lack of physical evidence of these “diseases” has not stopped the majority of psychiatrists from prescribing destructive, mind-altering drugs with side effects like suicide, violence, depression and brain damage. The pharmaceutical industry continues to push their poison on an uninformed public and collect billions of dollars a year for decades, all in the name of help.

“In seeking to impose ‘brain disease’ labels and drugs on normals of all ages, including our elders, psychiatry betrays us and is no longer a patient advocate. Instead they have become pharmaceutical industry and government advocates and the greatest health care fraud in history.” — Dr. Fred Baugham, Pediatric Neurologist and author of The ADHD Fraud—How Psychiatry Makes “Patients” of Normal Children.

On the Medicated Mediocrity page of this site you’ll find resources for more detailed information on the labeling and drugging of our children.

My hope is that, armed with this information, you will say no to anyone who suggests your child needs drugs or any other harmful psychiatric treatment.
