    Doctors that prescribe baclofen for addiction

    Fresh Start

    Yep, Reggie, this wonderful Doctor in Perth, Dr George O'Neill, has battled on in Perth saving lives of many different addicts. His main aim has been to introduce Naltrexone to this field.......and I must say has had a multitude of problems even trying to do that! He also uses Naltrexone "implants" , obviously by- passing the problem of non compliance of taking meds everyday.

    I know, from another member of MWO, that his clinic also prescribes HDB to patients. This man has been dogged by bureaucracy since he began his clinic....but has refused to lie down. It , I think, has been hampered by both medical people and the government of this country. And that was just with Naltrexone! Anyways, that's another story.

    But yes, this clinic is certainly worth a visit. A man of vision and great courage. He is certainly worth "googling" just to see his entire humbleness in helping others, under extreme duress.

    Doctors that prescribe baclofen for addiction

    I love this thread. 'course, I like 'em all...

    There are a couple of areas/regions missing still that I know about but don't have the specifics on yet. In New England there is a rehab that prescribes bac, but not generally. (It's a sad story...but I'll get into that later.) Bottom line is that if you are thinking about this route, it would pay to educate yourself about bac and specifically ask for it if you want it.

    There are definitely addiction docs in New York and Baltimore prescribing. I don't know much more than that, but would encourage you to simply call and ask. I don't think it'll be that hard anymore, honestly.

    Where else? Someone on here recently posted, but I can't remember from where... hmmm. Well, I'll update later.

    Cheers!

    Clinic in Toronto

    [QUOTE=NoWayOut;1134747]No Canadian Doc's yet?]


    Doctors at the Addiction Medicine Clinic of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto do prescribe Baclofen. I know that for a fact because I'm a patient of that clinic.

    Three weeks ago I was a hopeless full blown alcoholic, within a couple of weeks thanks to Baclofen the obsession of alcohol was just...gone!

    Baclofen does wonders!

    Hi Baclofan and

    That's so amazingly awesome! I really really want to hear more about your experience. What are the chances that you'll tell us?

    Thanks for coming around!

    Hello Baclofan

    Great handle!


    Could you put up a post which explains to Canadians how to go about accessing treatment at the Addiction Medicine Clinic of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto? I am sure there are many who come here who would be interested. Thanks.

    Cassander

    EDIT: I seem to have cross-posted with you and Ne. I'll go look for your post now. Thanks!

    Sweet! Congrats! And that's awesome that you have some non-douche nozzle doctors willing to prescribe. Unlike most American doctors

    Doctors that prescribe baclofen for addiction

    Hi, everyone. I was prescribed Baclofen by my MD shrink / psychopharmacologist in the Bay Area, California. I was trying Naxeltrone / TSM, and she had suggested in the spring that I try Baclofen. That went over my head, until a year on TSM had passed without much effect on my drinking. I then finally clued in and she also wanted me to go to 250 mg. Can't post her name / tel. no. -- but PM me and I can try to get you a referral. She would want to see you in person on a sustained basis, and as she's in the Bay Area, she ain't cheap. But she's worth it!

    This is one of the most important threads on this forum since there are 2000 hits to this site every day. It should be kept at the top so people begin to see how this is spreading. I think the Toronto clinic is important because there are some major teaching hospitals there and treatment is covered by free Medicare. The center is fully affiliated with the University of Toronto which has the top medical school in Canada. CAMH: Centre for Addiction & Mental Health--
