Hi everyone, I was very happy to find this site, a wonderful doctor, and information about baclofen. I have tried rehab, detox, AA, coucelors and psychologists and nothing has helped. For the first time. I spoke with a very knowledgeable doctor that treated me with no judgement, no biases and no prejudice. Unfortunately, I do have to go out of province to receive this treatment and it is a considerable fee, but I haven't given up yet. I am a 55 year old female, was successful in school and in most of my career, until the last few years when my drinking kept me from being able to hold down a job on a regular basis. When I spoke with my doctor through a telemedicine app on my iphone, I was at a point of desperation and a lot of suicidal thoughts. I told her that I was giving myself a year, and if I couldn't find something that worked, either alcohol would kill me or I would kill myself. She said "why would you only give yourself a year - you deserve to give yourself as long as it takes". Well, I liked her right from there. I'm looking forward to meeting other people here and wish everyone the best.
