    Doctors that prescribe baclofen for addiction

    still looking for a Doc in the LA area. Anywhere in California? Haha... this state is filled with hippy dippy types, I can't imagine there isn't one doctor around that is trying this route.

    Yep. I'd be shocked if there weren't. I'd start by picking up the phone book. errr. I mean google.
    Psychopharmacologist is our best bet, I think. And anyone who prescribes medications as a primary treatment is going to be more open to it. Affiliated with a major medical university/hospital...
    I'm pretty sure that you've got more than plastic surgeons out there. 1 or 2 anyway. I'm not sure why...

    My back-ass-water place barely has any shrinks, much less ones that know about bac. You would not believe. But I'm not undone yet. I've just resigned myself to the fact that I'm going to have to break one in. Or I'm going to give up and go home (Baltimore) where I know for fact that docs are using bac for addiction.

    Also, someone around here has one in SF. Maybe they are affiliated with a larger practice or know of someone in your area. Who is that?

    And Lo0p has one somewhere around there. Mid-CA anyway. (Sacramento?)

    Doctors that prescribe baclofen for addiction

    So,would u think I could be a good candidate for Baclofen? I tried Topamax and Naltrexone and neither of them worked.Read My Way Out..
    I am about to start the nutitional approach based on Dr. Larsen's book 7 Weeks to Sobriety".Dr. Larsen believes there are several types of alcoholics. All have different nutritional needs and some have a dual diagnosis.
    I am interested in the success rate with Baclofen.

    alcoholic types

    I agree in the different type alcoholics. I will order the book to understand more from his perspective. High School kids who get drunk, get into a wreck and possibly kill someone may not be alcoholics but may have gotten drunk at a single party, made a very bad decision, and have to go before a judge in the end.

    The next type is the one who, because of certain cercumstances that may trigger alcohol consumtion, will go on a "bender" sometimes for days or weeks,but then become sober for weeks or months, usually with meds to taper them off of their extreme intake.

    The last type is the daily drinker, sometimes 20 oz. of hard liquor or more, and after years of this activity, must take strong benzo's, but tapering over several days or even weeks to finally normalize. This type alcoholic is most prone to liver disease and other maladies due to daily excessive alcohol intake.

    What is your take on this? Agree, disagree? What other types can you identify and why or why not?

    I don't think you know unless you try. Naltrexone was a fail for me. Bac has helped but I am not there yet. Nutrition is always a good idea. Especially some exercise (lord knows I need to start back up).

    If anyone has the name or contact info for a doc in the **** area who will prescribe baclofen I would be grateful to have that information. Email or pm is fine. I'm not entirely sure how this message board works but would much appreciate any help regarding this. Thanks.
