The $400 Billion a year pharmaceutical industry has taken control of our society. They are killing our military members and few are aware of it.

All of the mass shootings we have experienced in the media are carried out by people using psychotropic drugs.

The cocktails of drugs given to service members is causing them to kill themselves. When their kids get upset, they are given the drugs by school nurses, and they are killing THEMSELVES as well...and sometimes...others too. Children are being taken away from parents who refuse the medications; they are then given the medications anyway.


Introduction by David M. Brahms, Esq., Brigadier General, US Marine Corps (retired)
The enthrallment and embrace of magic have 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 conditions and disorders, there is none. Dr. Bart Billings’ book, Invisible Scars, has done yeoman service by underscoring that reality. His litany of the grim dangers that present when we treat such conditions and disorders in this way should serve as a clarion call to end this practice. His strong and informed voice in this regard warrants a “thank you!”

I have known Dr. Billings for more than 12 years in various capacities. I have known him as a clinical psychologist, who is a retired military Medical Corps officer. He is the founder and director of the International Military and Civilian Combat Stress Conference, which was held at the Camp Pendleton Marine Base for its first 15 years. This conference provided a seminal setting for the exchange of ideas and for sharing information regarding combat stress and the conditions spawned by it. I first met Dr. Billings in connection with this conference—initially as an attendee and, later, as a presenter.

In addition, I have had the opportunity to consult with Dr. Billings in his capacity as a clinical psychologist regarding Marine Corps clients caught up in the military justice system. In some of these cases, I referred clients to him for a psychological evaluation, which gave me increased insight into their psychological processes and, thereby, allowed me to more effectively represent those Marines. Dr. Billings’ insights were uncanny and extremely helpful in achieving positive results for my clients. I also consult with Dr. Billings regarding other situations involving Marines and their families, as well as the veterans I assist under the aegis of various non-profit entities.

I have seen first-hand Dr. Billings’ concern for the well being of veterans and their families. They have always been one of his top priorities. Indeed, they were the impetus for him to write this book.
I have been a Marine for 52 years (25 of which were in active duty service). I have an intimate understanding of the problems Marines and their families’ encounter in times of war, as well as in peacetime. In my legal practice, I regularly wrestle with the perplexing issues presented by active duty service members and veterans suffering with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the destructive impact of the drugs used to treat it. How to describe the story of these service members’ condition and the horrific side effects of prescribed psychoactive drugs is regularly my task.

By happenstance, I discovered Dr. Billings’ International Military and Civilian Combat Stress Conference. It quickly filled my need. Attendance as a participant led to my being a presenter. These experiences were seminal.

In my view, Dr. Billings’ focus on integrative treatment for PTSD in military persons and veterans is right on target. His strong opposition to utilizing mind-altering psychiatric medication as the course of choice is well-grounded. His warnings regarding the dangers inherent in using such drugs are a public service of the first order. Kudos are in order.

This Book Saved My Life.

I am a Firefighter with over 34 years on the job and incurred a head injury at a fire approximately 16 years prior. After a considerable amount of time off from the job I was able to return. There were certainly some deficits, but I recovered enough jump back in. I was thankful. Early on in my treatment phase, I was prescribed an antidepressant medicine because I could not sleep. The lack of sleep led to depression. My sleep initially improved but the root cause was never really addressed.

Fast forward 14 years and I found myself trying to fix a subtly imploding life. The symptoms from the head injury were getting worse and caused more stress which made it all worse.... I could not reason my way out of the situation I was in and I was tired of the struggle. I could not solve it. I was unable to make it better even though I had seen several therapists over the years.

I met Dr. Billings, read his book and took charge of my life again. I cannot thank him enough for his insight, experience and dedication to the truth and "what's right".

Dr. Billings has written an outstanding book about the treatments for PTSD without the use of drugs. Our son, CPL Andrew R. White was treated with massive drugs for his PTSD by the doctors at the VA hospital and died from massive dosages of Seroquel, Paxil and Klonopin. We applaud Dr. Billings, for writing this excellent book. Had we read this book before our son died we would have been able to wean him from these drugs and seek alternative treatments and saved his life. Stan and Shirley White, Davis, WV

If your are taking prescribed psychological drugs read this book!

This is a must read book for anyone who is taking or anyone who is related to someone who is taking prescribed psychoactive prescription drugs to combat PTSD or any severe psychological disorders. I witnessed my son being over-prescribed a cocktail of multiple brain altering drugs that nearly killed him, and intensified his underlying psychological problems rather then cure his underlying illness. Dr Billings' book clearly outlines the inherent risks of relying on mind altering drugs to return a patient back to functioning psychological good health. As a result of reading this book my son has returned to intensified psychotherapy and has engaged in a systematic detoxification program to get off these drugs. The person I knew before starting these drugs has now been restored. Today he is better able to function and cope with his daily issues more clearly then when he was over-prescribed these dangerous drugs by his health providers.

This book is a MUST read for anyone who IS or knows someone who is going through PTSD. This book saves lives!
Dr. B Billings is an expert on the matter, who explains alternative therapy without medications. This book and the information it contains should be distributed at ALL VET hospitals, public and private institutions. It's so wonderful to know there are people like Dr. Billings educating the public...NOW, let's get the word out there folks!


“If we had read your book about the dangers of the drugs that the VA gave our son to treat PTSD, I am positive that he would be alive today. The cocktail of drugs given our son killed him. 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)
