Benzo Land: Benzodiazepines and the Snuffing Out of Souls  
Aug. 14, 2014
Author:  Richard Crasta
Category:  Non-fiction: Memoir
Description:  When a Robin Williams or Whitney Houston or Michael Jackson dies, the cause of death receives enormous public attention ... for a while, until the next big celebrity divorce, affair, or other scandal. Whereas Benzodiazpeine addiction or dependency, which possibly affects 50-100 million people worldwide, is, for its size, probably the least talked about or understood dependency--often, not fully understood by the doctors who are prescribing it. Why? This remarkable and passionate memoir of doctor-induced Benzodiazepine addiction not only provides answers, but comes along with an astonishing personal story, and presents a public interest argument for drug companies and doctors to take responsibility for the dependencies they have created and offer compensation and free detoxification treatment.

"The Snuffing Out of Souls" refers to Othello's lines: "Put out the light, and then Put out the light." The light, in this case, is the light of hope, of humanity, of mental clarity, of lucidity, of life.

Revelatory, personal, and unflinchingly honest.
