Author Jordan Peterson is recovering from severe tranquiliser addiction in Russia.

Bestselling Canadian author and academic Jordan Peterson is undergoing rehabilitation from an addiction to the tranquiliser drug benzodiazepine, his family has said.

Mr Peterson initially went onto benzodiazepine when he had an "extremely severe autoimmune reaction to food", she said, with the dosage being raised after his wife was diagnosed with cancer.

Mr Peterson is a popular right-wing figure known for rallying against "political correctness", feminism and "cultural Marxism".

Attempts at treating Mr Peterson in numerous North American hospitals had failed, his daughter said, requiring them to seek an "emergency" detox program in Russia.

"The decision to bring him to Russia was made in extreme desperation, when we couldn't find any better option," she said.

Mr Peterson himself will provide the next update on his condition, Mikhaila said. »
