"Dr. Billings, if we had read your book about the dangers of many of the drugs that the VA gave our son, Corporal Andrew R. White, USMC to treat his PTSD I am positive that he would be alive today. His mother and I trusted the doctors who treated Andrew ...this was a big mistake. The cocktail of antidepressants (Paxil), antipsychotics (Seroquel(R)) and analgesic drugs killed my son. Since his death we have been on a mission to help other veterans obtain drug-free treatments for PTSD."
--Stan and Shirley White (Marine Corps parents) Davis, WV
"Dr. Bart Billings is alone in the ranks of military mental health in denouncing the pseudoscience of biological psychiatry with its invented 'disorders'/'diseases'/'chemical imbalances' and one-dimensional drugging/poisoning which damages the brain and body of every soldier & veteran while killing untold thousands--horrifically--by sudden cardiac death. This must end to make room for humane, non-medical therapies."
--Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD, board-certified neurologist
"War causes fragmentation and destabilization of the combat warrior as it destabilizes the society in which it is fought. The art of physical medicine is utilizing physical remedies rather than medications to heal the WHOLE being--mind, body, and spirit. Hence the antidote for combat stress--a 'holistic' approach to healing."
--Chrisanne Gordon, MD, board-certified physiatrist, American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, founder and executive director, Resurrecting Lives Foundation
"The enthrall and embrace of magic has captured our 21st century society. Nowhere is that better exemplified than in the field of psychopharmacology. As much as we may wish for an elixir that could magically heal mental health disorders, there is none. Dr. Billings has done yeoman service by underscoring that reality, as well as grim dangers that present when we rely on psychoactive drugs as a curative. We owe him a thank you!"
--General David Brahms, Esq. (Ret. USMC)
"The FDA, military services, and VA want to help patients, and certainly wish to deter suicide and violence. The problem is their one-size fits all commitment to antidepressants results in denying to patients the full truth. As the mental health expert and soldier that he is, Dr. Bart Billings' 'Invisible Scars'--utilizing integrative treatment modalities instead of psychiatric medication--is a must-read for those seeking the truth on military suicides, mass shootings, and what the media won't cover in these tragedies."
--Commander Don Farber, Esq., (Ret. USN, ) .
"My late husband, William Glasser, MD would be so happy to see Bart Billings' book today. I believe he would say that it could quite possibly revolutionize the treatment of countless soldiers suffering from combat stress for all time. This book is a must-read by anyone who is seriously concerned about the tragic suicide rate among our service men and women returning from combat."
--Carleen Glasser, senior faculty The William Glasser Institute International, author and widow of the late William Glasser, MD
