The HBO Addiction documentary played like a baclofen ad. I honestly don’t know much about it and don’t have a lot to say, but I did admit someone who was treated with baclofen for neurological pain and used it to get high. The patient was eventually cut off by the prescribing physician because she overdosed on it several times and required hospitalization.

I have been an addiction professional and social worker since 1994. I started blogging in 2005 as the Clinical Director at Dawn Farm. I no longer work at Dawn Farm and am now the Director of Behavioral Medicine at a community hospital, and a lecturer at Eastern Michigan University’s School of Social Work. Views expressed here are my own. Keep in mind that the field, the contexts in which the field operates, and my views have changed over time. View all posts by Jason Schwartz
