After struggling with drug addiction for years, Hunter Biden went to a rehab facility and finally cleaned up his act.
Part of his recovery in 2018 and 2019 included an intravenous ketamine treatment, which some see as controversial, but psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow recently defended the process.
"Having treated many hundreds of clients with ketamine, I’ve never seen a bad result. Moreover, being in touch with at least 50 psychiatrists who use ketamine for their clients they, too, cannot share a single bad event wherein it triggered depression or caused psychosis," he reportedly wrote in the Molecular Psychiatry journal. "No cases of death and, shockingly, almost no one reports anyone drug-seeking ketamine [for recreational use] when it is used therapeutically. People do not game the system trying to get more. They become increasingly reflective, responsible and fixed on their real goals."
As OK! has reported, leaked videos allegedly coming from Biden's laptop show him smoking crack cocaine and drinking hard seltzer while at the treatment center, but since leaving the facility, he's been on a better path and is focused on his new career as a painter.
Plus, four months after he finished treatments, he and Melissa Cohen tied the knot, and in 2020, they welcomed son Beau Jr.
Ablow also referenced the 52-year-old when he stated, "If a cocaine addict and dealmaker were to decide he was actually an artist, one could harken back to any ketamine treatment and wonder whether that was a positive contributing factor."
He continued, "Without even confirming or refuting whether Mr. Biden was ever treated by me, those who would dismiss the possibility of completely changing one’s life are those who would also dismiss the opportunity for redemption, and I dismiss neither."
Despite his refusal to confirm whether or not he worked with Biden, other reports state Biden's stolen laptop holds evidence of a relationship.
News about Ablow defending ketamine treatment for drug addiction came from The Post, which also noted that Ablow's medical license was suspended in 2019 due to sexual misconduct allegations.
