Dr. Hapworth Speaks About Methamphetamine
> 2/16/2006 5:33:45 PM

On February 3rd, Dr. William Hapworth gave NYU Grand Rounds at the Manhattan Psychiatric Center. His topic was one he knows well, methamphetamine and methamphetamine addiction. The following clip is part one of Dr. Hapworth's presentation. Part two will follow on Monday. If you are interested, you can download the full power point presentation using the link located in the right hand margin of this blog.


I have a female family member who is on meth. She's going through a divorce and said she was using it because she was too depressed to otherwise get up. But she's still using it and I think her and her husband were using it for years. She's lost over 40 lbs over the last year and looks terrible. But she won't go to a rehab center. She'll say she will and then change her mind. After months of this, we don't know what to do and apparently neither does the local authority. She was arrested recently and we thought they'd make her go to a rehab. They didn't. I don't know if it's realistic to think there is anything you can do for someone who doesn't want help. But I think learning about the addiction is a start. Thank you for posting the video. I'll be watching for the next. If anyone has gone through this and has any suggestions, please email me at www.kirkndar.com and put "meth help" in the subject so I will see it right away. Tks, Kirk
