Withdrawal Program FAQs

Who is Point of Return?

Answer:  We are a 501(c)3 public benefit nonprofit that is in our 15th year.  Our team includes physicians, medical professionals and   survivors of both addiction and withdrawals from psychoactive medications and other addictive substances.  We have many volunteers that were once clients and as Alumni choose to help others. This is a unique and rare group    of people that are also Prescription Drug Experts and recognized by nearly every major news network.

There are many items on the market that claim to help withdrawals, most are a waste of money. How do I know your program is different?

Answer: Our program is 15 years old, this only happens if there has been tremendous success.  We do not ship supplements and leave you to figure it out on your own. We guide throughout the process and individualize your program to meet your situation. There is nothing like Point of Return on the market and that speaks to our success. Coming off medications is very serious and needs to be treated professionally but with kindness. We have all recovered and our goal is to free as many people possible so you can join our mission in inspiring others.

I am very frightened to come off my medication, how can you help?

Answer:  Most that come to Point of Return are very afraid of the withdrawal process. This is why we have a pre-taper where we are only building the nutraceuticals and you do not taper.  We want you feeling better so the taper will not start until you see the improvement and feel like you are ready.

I'm on antidepressants, benzos and sleeping pills, can you still help?

ANSWER:  Absolutely, but you only need one program and we will make sure it is customized to address all medications you are wanting to taper.

Will you accept anyone on your program?

Answer:  This is an in-home program so it's critical that the client be able to be well enough to implement the program. Some people are too sick and really would be better served with either a local physician or in an inpatient facility.    

How do your supplements help?

Answer:  We specially formulate high-grade food supplements for easy absorption that are unlike anything available on the market today. Our goal is to ease symptomology during the tapering process and to help augment healing after the taper is completed.  We do not use herbs as many travel the same liver pathways as medications and often will alter how a medication is metabolized. We believe in keeping you safe.

Will your supplementation interact with my medication?

Answer:  No, this is why we specifically formulate our nutraceuticals. They do not interact with any medication.   

Can I use your tapering rates and ask questions without the supplementation?

Answer:  No, the nutraceuticals are critical to both to help lessen the symptoms but also to augment healing. You will not be able to  sustain our taper rates without the nutraceuticals. Those that use the nutraceuticals just do better and draw on our  team less because they feel their symptoms  lessening. Using the nutraceuticals monthly are critical to your success and our team’s load  since we are a small nonprofit.  

How do I communicate with Point of Return?

Answer:  You can reach us by phone Monday-Friday, 9-5 CST at tollfree 866.605.2333, email at info@pointofreturn.com, livechat or on our private discussion board.

Where countries can your program be shipped to?

Answer:  Currently we ship to 76 countries and every state of the United States. Only a few countries have restrictions on the importation of supplements – Mexico, Spain, England and South America.

Does my doctor have to be involved?

Answer:  Yes, in order to achieve our taper rates, you need a prescription. We do provide a Physician’s Guide for your medical professional and we are happy to talk to any physician or medical professional to explain our recommended taper rates and program.

Has your team been through these withdrawals?

Answer:  Yes, every team member at Point of Return has their own story with these drugs, including our medical advisors.  Some of us did cold-turkey's and fought our way back and others, including our mentors, have completed our program and now volunteer to help others make the journey back to life and health.

I'm very sensitive and nervous about taking supplements, can I do the program?

Answer:  Please understand that the drugs make the nervous system highly stimulated. The way to heal is to help replenish what the drugs have stolen from your body.  We all have taken drugs daily and now it's time to be willing to put something healthy in your body.  We will walk you through the process but you must be willing to take the food-based, gentle nutraceuticals that are a crucial piece of the program. This is not just about tapering, its about healing. Commit to healing.

I'm lactose and gluten intolerant, can I use your program?

Answer:  Yes, everything in our program is lactose and gluten free, but also soy free and corn free.

How do I know you are not an internet scam?

Answer:  We are currently Prescription Drug Experts for ABC, Fox National News, ABC and Huffington Post. We have extensive media coverage – television interviews, magazine, newspaper and radio shows.  Many of our clients have contributed to our media coverage. Please review and then read our testimonials. These are real people who have regained their lives and many you will meet on our private discussion board.

How is your program different from other options?

Answer:  Our personal Attention, Expertise, Response time and Experience.  We answer every telephone call and email and do not have an order center - you get an actual team member when you contact us. The team at Point of Return has in-depth knowledge of medications and personal experience with these drugs. Our medical team of advisors are  actively involved and we guide each client based on their personal circumstances. There is no comparison with other do-it-yourself programs, treatment centers, or detox facilities. Our program is for those who are not in need of an inpatient facility and want to continue living their life while tapering with guidance support. Tapering medications is nothing to take lightly, so we believe in an expert and personal  touch.

Can I continue using the herbs and vitamins I currently take if I am on your program?

Answer:  We assess each client individually for interactions or items that can make the withdrawal process more challenging. So some items can stay and others we will explain why we recommend not using them. 

What is expected of me while going through your program?

Answer:  A Hopeful and Willing Attitude.

Is this a religious organization?

Answer:  While our team is mostly Christian, Point of Return is not a religious organization and are here to help all people of any faith.

What are the costs involved with your program?

Answer:  The initial cost of the program is $269 (plus shipping) and it lasts 5-6 weeks since you are building the nutraceuticals slowly gently to therapeutic levels. Then monthly you would purchase individual items depending on what you need to control the symptoms.  Benzodiazepines and Sleeping Pills generally generally require all four nutraceuticals monthly since they are a more challenging classification of medications. Antidepressants can be less depending on your anxiety level since some are sedating and others cause more anxiousness.  So budget between $125-$230 per month while tapering and for a few months after you finish your taper. Our time by phone, email or livechat; assessment; discussion board; communication with your pharmacist or physician are all free. This is part of our nonprofit commitment to help each person regain their life.
