I’m getting impression whenever I mention Dr Ashton / Ashton’s manual to GP’s or Psychiatrist no one of them seem to reflect. I feel like I’m mentioning name of some unknown shaman?

What’s your experience there?

A lot of doctors in the US have never heard of Dr. Ashton. Some disregard her work simply because they “think” they know better. My doctor was receptive and was willing to use her taper plan for my withdrawal.

I am in the UK … and my psychiatrist had never heard of her. He also denied that my sxs were due to benzo withdrawal. He said something about there being no clinical trials …    on benzo withdrawal.

So I’m in Ireland… same here.

In addition, the best thing I heard today from one psychiatrist is that my addiction at this stage is merely psychological .

Generally they are all aware Benzos are bad and they will be reluctant to prescribe it, but when it comes to Benzo addiction in their eyes it looks less significant.

Those two things are not in proportion…
I wish they are right though

  1. You’d think she’d be well-known among the medical community, given that she’s touted as “the leading expert”.

    One does wonder.. if she’s such an expert, and allegedly a leading one at that, why isn’t her work being adopted in the mainstream world of drug cessation?

    I submit two points:

    1) That her methods aren’t widely accepted as suitable / bonafide.. much like Dr Jones’ theories about why the Towers fell on 9/11 are viable only to gullible conspiracy circles.

    2) Even among the benzo community, they ignore much of what Ashton herself states, and they bend her claims to fit their narrative while ignoring unfavorable evidence to the contrary of their narrative.

    This is absolutely the framework of conspiracy-theorist thinking and cult dogma.

    Vulnerable people are being lured into a groupthink mentality and are being harmed by it. Anyone that steps out of the fold can look back and see it for what it REALLY is.

    Colun is a highly intelligent man and I simply can’t believe that he isn’t well-aware of the true nature of his following.
