In 1999, our founder, Jim Harper, began investigating antidepressants and the cause of their adverse reactions. In 1999, the Internet had two distinct types of websites about psychotropic drugs, those that only stated how bad the drugs were and those sites that only promoted their usage. While others were arguing about the medications, Jim Harper began looking for solutions for withdrawal. Eventually, most every person will reach a point where the physician and patient will want to discontinue the drug and withdrawal assistance needed to be created. In 1999, Jim Harper’s program was the first psychotropic drug withdrawal program.

After 25-years and over 19 million using the program, The Road Back Program is the most widely used drug withdrawal program in the world. The Road Back is a past member of California Association of Alcoholism & Drug Abuse Counselors (CAADAC).

Jim Harper used the information gathered from his DNA Testing company, Advanced DNA Testing, to advance the program continually over the past decades. After conducting hundreds of DNA test to determine how individuals metabolize psychotropic drugs, evaluating the potential side effects we can all experience due to medications, a basic program was developed. Once DNA testing was completed with hundreds of people regarding their ability to metabolize nutrients and drugs, the program made its next advancement.

Currently, specific supplements are used with The Road Back Program to target genes the drugs activate. The simple process of switching these drug induced activations off again brings relief to the patient during withdrawal.

From all of us at The Road Back – We wish you the best on your journey.

Jim Harper has never used psychotropic medications and is not a recovered addict. Jim has owned a DNA testing company, has been approved by the Los Angeles, CA. courts to be an expert DNA witness and has authored 16 bestselling books about drug withdrawal. One of Jim’s books was used as a text book at a major university in America in their pharmacology doctoral program.

Jim does understand what you are going through. He has personally answered hundreds of thousands of e-mails over the past 25-years and will answer yours as well and guide you through the withdrawal process.

You will find written in the drug manufacturers description of psychotropic drugs a statement of how to reduce the medication. In 1999, Jim published how to reduce addictive medications and Jim’s approach from 1999 is now recommended by the drug companies. “Reduce the drug slowly and gradually. If side effects become too unbearable, go back up to the last dosage you were doing fine with, get stable once again, and then resume the reduction at a more gradual pace.”
