Treating addiction and pain

 

continued

Pain Recovery Solutions' office is bathed in comforting earth tones and punctuated by splashes of color. Framed inspirational messages are everywhere. Malinoff reads one aloud: "The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected."

He ponders the Swedish proverb and offers an example: "Now I can look back twenty years later and say, 'Oh, yeah, that sure was the case,' but at the time I couldn't see a thing."

Malinoff isn't speaking as a doctor but as a recovering pain medication addict and alcoholic.

"I got help only because I was intervened upon," Malinoff admits. In 1990, the state medical board mandated that he get treatment for chemical dependency and lifted his medical license. He was unable to work as a physician for almost two years.
