While technically not a benzo, it does closely mimic the effects of a benzo, so that is probably why they view it like a benzo.

You psychiatrist is a smart man. SSRI's and whatever other drug that's available for psych disorders are capable of producing physical dependence. They are NOT addictive, however, when used for the treatment of a psych disorder, including benzos. The reason some of these foolish doctors--they are human, we must not forget--view benzos as addictive is because some users of street drugs do abuse benzos for various reasons, usually to sedate after cocaine use for instance.

It is physical dependence that is the problem, and I've read many stories of people having horrible times discontinuing the supposed non-"addictive" drugs like SSRI's.
