Nearly 3000 patients are suffering from chronic pain and bipolar disorder
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
On April 3, 2013, OpiateCureBlog.com launched a public forum allowing former patients of retired physician Dr. Robert T. Cochran, the ability to communicate with one another. The goal of the forum is to help former patients of Dr. Cochran to find replacement care and new treatments for chronic pain and bipolar disorder.
OpiateCureBlog.com opened in February 2013, following the retirement of Dr. Robert T. Cochran Jr. Retired in December 2012, Dr. Cochran left behind nearly 3000 patients who are now scurrying to find a doctor who supports the theories documented in his book titled, The Opiate Cure. A book that has garnered much controversy since it’s release in 2009.
Based on feedback collected at OpiateCureBlog.com, many former patients of Dr. Cochran have found it difficult to find a replacement physician. According to many comments posted on the website, locating a doctor who believes that opiates can be used to control the mood swings associated with bipolar disease and chronic pain has not been easy.
“This is the first time we’ve built a blog for someone and seen so much activity in so little time. OpiateCureBlog.com gained immediate attention from Dr. Cochran’s former patients within two weeks of it’s launch. This tells me that Dr. Cochran’s book and style of treatment must have been very unique. On a daily basis, we receive comments from former patient’s asking for help in finding a replacement doctor. It’s really sad to see this many people suffer”, according to Drew Bourke at Starmaker PR Group, the blog moderators.
Dr. Cochran’s controversial book titled, The Opiate Cure was first published in 2009. Many of Dr. Cochran’s patients sought his treatment after reading his book. The problem now, is that nearly 3000 patients are suffering from chronic pain and bipolar disorder, and are unable to find a physician willing to prescribe opiates at the levels Dr. Cochran often did.
The OpiateCureBlog forum was created due to the high number of comments and inquiries from former patients of Dr. Cochran’s. The goal of the forum is to facilitate communication between Dr. Cochran’s former patients, give them the ability to communicate with each other, and share information about the physicians, treatments and medications they’ve found since Dr. Cochran’s retirement in December 2012.
