Following the lead of fellow Scientologist Tom Cruise, Kirstie Alley and Kelly Preston have sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration asking them to help stop the use of prescription drugs such as Ritalin to treat ADHD.
“We can no longer sit back and let the clock tick, waiting for more deaths, suicides or people driven to violent acts by psychotropic drugs,” Alley and Preston write in their letter to the FDA.
Alley adds, “Parents in particular have been misled about the effects of these drugs. They are highly addictive; kids are using them more than street drugs to get high.”
Alley and Preston have been outspoken opponents of psychiatric drugs since 1999.
