>Personally I think avoiding benzos is a good thing.
Though here's an idea for a double blind study. To compare the effect on mental state of opiate vs benzo.
Really, I think the money (give the mental health budget to the travel agents) would be better spent on giving people a holiday.
Given the price of US drugs it might be a bargain. By the time you'd walked from Patagonia to Alaska your problems would have faded as well.
My psychiatrist speaks movingly in favour of this option. He thought (even!) casinos would be better, which was quite funny.
