PTSD Treatment Can Start Early Despite Addiction

In general, physicians have been reluctant to begin therapy until patients have been sober for 6 to 12 months…

If doctors prescribed medical cannabis, it could treat both the addiction and the PTSD.  Waiting for any amount of time to treat PTSD seems like a recipe for disaster, and likely just increases the problems with addiction.

  1. i completely agree. lets just take the addicts’ drug away completely and provide no assistance thru a pdoc or a tdoc for 6-12 months, and then wonder why medical interventions like therapy and psychiatry don’t help, wonder why the person didn’t stay clean, or switched to a different drug. because this is sooo logical.
