Tapering alone is not enough. Unless the receptors begin to heal and the symptoms diminish, many reinstate other medications. Point of Return focuses on healing and our nutraceuticals are key to the program’s success. These are utilized throughout the tapering process. We do not use synthetic vitamins, colorings, flavorings or artificial ingredients. We flood the body with whole-food supplementation that assists in providing relief and helps augment healing.*
Our nutraceuticals are food-based, natural and pure. Unlike herbs and many vitamins, our nutraceuticals will not interact with any medication. We formulate specifically for symptom relief. Our focus is promoting Glutathione levels (the body’s master antioxidant) using only the natural precursors (Glutathione is essential for natural, neurochemical sleep and to calm the nervous system while promoting natural energy levels); lowering anxiousness and feelings of stress; replenish natural melatonin; and provide healthy fats to the brain and nervous system for improved nerve transmission and cognitive function.*
The science is complex but our philosophy is simple: Feed the Brain; Support the Immune System; Relieve Stress and Assist in Natural Sleep.
We want you to Feel Better For Life!
About The Program
Benzo dependence is by far the most challenging addiction, and modalities applied to other types of addiction cannot be used for benzo withdrawal. Taper rates are slower than other classifications so the 45 million GABA receptors have adequate time to readjust between tapers. Symptoms must be managed or even a gradual taper is too challenging for most to overcome.
Simple vitamins, herbs and over-the-counter items can increase symptoms, including Calcium supplements, B-Complex, Valerian, and over-the-counter items including synthetic melatonin or sleep aids. Knowing what to use and what to eliminate is essential to your success.
We know the notion of escaping benzodiazepine addiction seems overwhelming and unattainable. Its not, you can heal and actually sleep again. You can engage fully in life and feel in your skin, laugh and find pleasure in life. You can do it - Let us help you escape this horrible addiction... We establish slow taper rates and use with all-natural items to calm your system throughout the process, and nothing will interact with your medications. And of course our compassionate, kind and skilled team ensures you make back to life as we all have.
Point of Return is an At-Home program to escape benzodiazepine dependence. It’s a collaborative effort between Point of Return, You, Your Doctor and Pharmacist.
Our team of experts outlines appropriate taper rates based on multiple factors. The nutraceuticals, or food-based supplementation is used before and during the process and is essential to calm and ease symptoms. We mentor and guide you professionally and with kindness.
