first, we should all commend Bruce for his success these last few years in keeping clean, and wish him further success.
Second, I wish to add to his warning. Those of us who have had problems with drugs should indeed be sure to seek out doctors who are well versed in the field of drug abuse, and we should immediately tell all; but we need also be wary of those physicians who uncritically accept all the beliefs common in the 'recovery community' whether or not they have any scientific backing. Such practitioners might deprive us of medications that may be very useful--indeed, of 'officially proscribed' meds that may even greatly aid our ability to not use other drugs in a destructive manner. There is no good dogmatic substitute for intelligence.
