Thanks MChaplin..I guess what impressed me --data solid enough for Harvard review of psych...such mortality and so low a natural sustained recovery rate..our responsibility to advise our pts how important for a period of length of time the data indicate to not omit any part of treatment w proved safety/ efficacy...nonetheless one of the psych I work w in an acute psych/addiction acute inpt treatment center main emphases is to at start document an early taper plan
