Fresh Off an Interview with Vladimir Putin, Tucker Carlson Repeats the Trick with Keith Ablow

“I settled a few cases,” onetime Hunter Biden shrink Keith Ablow said, just over ten minutes into an interview with Tucker Carlson. “Because, I don’t know. Maybe God saying ‘you didn’t have the quijones [sic],’ I don’t know. But I wanted some safety for my family.”

It was the only explanation he gave for why Massachusetts stripped his license in the wake of multiple claims he sexually abused patients. For the bulk of the interview, Ablow carried on, as if he were still a shrink.

Ablow similarly claimed to be ignorant of why the DEA searched his office.

“I can’t explain why these things were ever taken or why I would be raided. … I never figured out why the DEA would come to my office. ”

In fact, Ablow provided an anachronistic claim suggesting he got “raided” for the same reason Roger Stone and Donald Trump did — politics, he insinuates.

A: I texted Roger Stone, Man, you, me, and Trump get raided. Who doesn’t get raided. And he, because he’s Roger Stone, he texted right back, “The bad guys.”

T: He’s right. Unfortunately, he’s right.

This exchange couldn’t have been a response to the search of Ablow’s office; rather, it could only have been a response to Trump’s search for stealing classified documents.

This conversation could have occurred no earlier than August 2022 — 30 months after the search of Ablow and 43 months after the search of Roger Stone. It’s an interesting comparison. After all, one of those searches sought notes Roger Stone took of all the conversations he had with Trump in 2016. Another found documents recording a grant of clemency for Roger Stone that has some unknown tie to a French President — possibly Macron, whom in 2017, Stone’s buddies colluded with GRU to target in a hack-and-leak.

Are you really suggesting there’s a similarity between the Stone and Trump searches and your own, Keith? Because that’s a whole lot of rat-fuckery you’re tying this search to.

Having endorsed Ablow’s claim that he, Trump, and Trump’s rat-fucker are really the good guys, Tucker predictably never pointed out that Ablow might learn why he was searched by looking at the warrant, nor did he ask what the warrant said.

Ultimately, after more babbling and blaming an assistant, though, Ablow offered up that if you call in prescriptions to pharmacies around the country, you might get in trouble for doing so.

A: Right. And so no idea, as to motive, agenda, again, I mean, I did have a disgruntled former employee. One who thinks the laptop had nothing to do with it, well maybe that person told them that you were selling drugs. They raided a pharmacy in my town, at the same time, in Newburyport, Mass. Again, no charges. it’s run by a very nice guy, Louis, he’s about 85.

T: Did anyone apologize to you?

A: No. And it’s not necessarily over. They never say, sorry, and by the way, you have a clean bill.

T: Wait. So they can just show up with guns at your house, not explain why they’re there,

A: That’s right.

T: Steal all your stuff. And then never charge you, much less convict you. And that just kind of hangs over your head.

A: It hangs over your head and if I had called my lawyer prior to this, he would have said, absolutely not. You are not going on Tucker Carlson’s show, because, as you know, you’re still under Federal investigation. Any doctor — any doctor in America, if you said, did you ever have to wonder if you could call in prescriptions around the country for pharmacies, would say, I don’t know. I’ve done it. Is that a bad thing, if they fill it? But, if they find out that any single doctor did that, for instance, they can make a beef about it. So this is a way to shut people up. Right. Because anybody can be messed with.


The reason I’m here … is I don’t like being shut up. It’s safer not to. Really safer. [my emphasis]

That’s important context to the interview: Slightly more than four years after the DEA search and more than five after Hunter Biden left his care, Ablow is claiming that if anything were to happen to him, it would be because he opened his mouth. The timing of this is important.

Unless someone were charged with a continuing conspiracy through the time Rudy Giuliani started disseminating the laptop, the statute of limitations on Ablow’s hypothetical role would have expired. They would not have, though, on any drug-related crimes that continued through February 2020. “You’re still under federal investigation,” Ablow’s lawyer would say to him.

It as if he’s saying that if he were charged with drug-related crimes, it would be because of his role in the Hunter Biden caper.

That claim came even as Ablow falsely claimed to have protected Hunter’s privacy. He did so, several times, when describing how he came to sit on Hunter’s laptop for a year. In the first instance, he described that, generally, he has no interest in someone’s private life.

T: How did Hunter Biden’s laptop end up in your office or your house?

A: Well, I think that texts and emails that exist would prove out that, you know, he leaves laptops places.

T: Yeah?

A: Despite my saying to him, pick it up, dude, along with your Loro Piana clothes, because they’re my size and I might wear them [laughs], or keep them, he didn’t. And so there it was. And it was taken.

T: You knew it was in your house.

A: Oh yeah. It was … locked up.

T: And you told him, you left your laptop at my place, pick it up, and he didn’t?

A: Correct. Multiple times. [Funny mouth gesture]

T: And so, what happened next? I mean, did you look at the laptop?

A: No. That’s why this theory from Hunter’s pal and benefactor — his lawyer — Kevin Morris is absurd. Cause they could open it up. He has it back! And they could do some sort of forensic look at it. Not only did I never open the lid, I never turned it on, I have no interest in looking at somebody’s private stuff. [my emphasis]

But then prodded by Tucker, he claimed to have Hunter’s secrets independent of the laptop and then shared what he claims Hunter’s diagnosis was — cocaine dependency.

T: But you were his shrink. So you would know his secrets anyway.

A; Exactly.

[Cackling from Tucker.]

A And I don’t have to look at his laptop to know his secrets and his secrets are safe with me, which is why if you have a lawyer, I’ve said this before, if you have a lawyer who represents you, and you allow that lawyer to suggest that your shrink is a scumbag, then I give you a diagnosis, additionally, besides, cocaine dependence, which is scumbag.

T; Yeah.

A: Because that, I made clear to a few people, who suggested, you should have turned it over. Look what you had! You could have helped America! No no no. You don’t understand. This is sacred. This is like a blood oath. If you think I’m gonna be on my death bed, and look my kids in the eyes and say, well I was the one who made it kind of confidential, when you go to a psychiatrist. Uh uh. Like I’m willing to die for that. I’m not breaking confidentiality with a patient, ever. That’s, like, one of those tripwires. [my emphasis]

He has no interest in looking at private stuff, Hunter’s secrets are safe with him, and he wouldn’t break confidentiality, he said, after claiming to repeat a diagnosis that would be useful for prosecutors in the gun case.

The most telling example of Ablow violating Hunter’s privacy, though, is Ablow’s thinly veiled description of his opinion regarding Hunter Biden’s ills. As Ablow explained to Tucker how he (used to, when he had a license, which again he doesn’t mention) helps clients reclaim their own story, he spoke about a hypothetical patient who exactly matches Hunter Biden. His description pitched a claim that Hunter was ordered to earn money for the family by the Bidens — something Hunter expressed when complaining about his financial woes, but something that had far more to do with his divorce than his father. Which is how he insinuated Joe Biden doesn’t love his son.

They suffer depression, anxiety, all manner of things, when their stories are not known to them. When they think of people, let’s say, in the family, or others or events that unfolded as beneficial to them when they were, let’s say, very bad for them. They need to recast the characters that they thought were the heroes in their lives and say, maybe not. Maybe when I abandoned my self, my interest, to take a common example, maybe when I allowed myself to not pursue that real passion of mine because I wanted to satisfy people around me, maybe that means that those people didn’t love me as much as I thought they did. Right? Now, that’s an incredible epiphany, when that happens. If a man, for instance, is supposed to be an artist, and he goes around the globe doing deals, to create wealth for his family, because he’s not sure what else to do because that was assigned to him? That man needs to embrace his art again and reevaluate everyone around him who suggested he not do that. [my emphasis]

We’ve seen this — Ablow minimizing Joe Biden’s love for his son — before. As I showed in this post, Ablow completely rewrote a statement Hunter wrote for a Vanity Fair piece and took out all the love. Ablow replaced this fairly amazing paragraph about Joe Biden … [I’ve left all typos, including the charming, “iOS” instead of “is.”]

The reason people love my Dad Chris iOS because he’s the son they hope to raise he’s the parent they hope to be he’s the brother and friend we all look up to. They love him Chris because he is as real an American as they are and they all want to be. He’s not perfect’ he’s got a horrible temper, he spoils his grandkids, he loves my Mom almost too much and he still thinks he can still make me angrier than anyone on earth sometimes. There’s nobody I want to make more proud of me than my Dad and there’s no-one that I know can ever be more proud of me and my whole family. May Dad never has asked anyone of us to be less human he’s just taught us all what it means to be a good man in hard world. He taught me what his mom and dad taught him “Always remember no man is better than you and you are no better than you.”if er to break I m certain they would all say —no one will ever know you better than your brothers and your sisters you always take their side no matter how badly they screwed up. Every Biden kid knows there’s nothing that they could do to make anyone in this family to stop loving you. And finally always be kind to the people in pain (unless they hurt your grandmother your mom your aunt or your sister- then you’re free to beat the shit out of them if your sister hasn’t beat you to it.) [my emphasis]

With a paragraph that turned Trump’s opponent into a fighter, stripped of his love.

I believe that my father has become an ongoing symbol of what it means to keep on fighting for what is good in oneself, in others and in our country. I can tell you that I wouldn’t be alive today, if my dad hadn’t kept fighting for me, too, through my darkest days. So the idea that tragedy or tough times or any number of trials would dissuade a Biden from serving his fellow man—whether a friend or a fellow citizen—could not be more misguided. My dad has proven, ag ain and again, that he is (as Teddy Roosevelt once said of himself) “as strong as a bull moose” and that America “can use [him] to the limit.”

In an interview in which Ablow advised Tucker to get a dog so he can experience unconditional love, Ablow stole the love Joe has for Hunter, one of the things that has sustained Hunter in sobriety.

Given Ablow’s inconsistent claims about confidentiality and his attack on Joe Biden’s love for his son, take a look at Ablow’s claims about why he got the DEA to give the laptop back to Hunter. As Ablow described it, after the raid he moved immediately to inform the DEA that the Hunter laptop was not his own.

T: So, and then, how did they get Hunter Biden’s laptop?

[describes seizure]

A: And then I immediately called my lawyer and said, look, a patient’s item was taken amongst the things that were mine. It has a sticker on it. It looks different than mine. It’s messy. Mine are clean. His was messy. We have to get it back to him because that’s not okay. And uh, that’s what we did.


T: They returned it to him. How did that happen?

A: Well, I did suggest that that would be the right thing for them to do. They made a — they could have made a different decision given that he was under investigation, federally. They didn’t. That’s their business, as to why not. You know it sure put me in a funny position because I had guys like Garrett Ziegler, who’s a far right guy, saying, Keith Ablow must be in business selling drugs with Hunter Biden. He wouldn’t turn over that laptop — he had it all this time. Well, no. It’s patient confidentiality.

He again cited patient confidentiality, the same confidentiality that didn’t prevent him from repeating his diagnosis of Hunter or describing generally what he told Hunter to malign his father’s love. The exclusion of a laptop from a warranted search has nothing to do with patient confidentiality: Ablow has already said that he didn’t look at the laptop. The laptop, at that point, had more to do with Ablow’s rental than with his psychiatric care.

Importantly, Ablow pointed to the fact that he got the DEA to return the laptop to Hunter as proof that he had no role in compromising the other laptop.

I [effected?] the return of Mr. Biden’s laptop to him through my attorney, interacting with the DEA, because that’s the responsible thing to do. Which is, by the way, why Kevin Morris’ theory that Keith Ablow is the source of the laptop originally — he’s the leak — is absurd.

Is it, though? Or did Ablow rush to get the laptop back to Hunter to prevent them from doing a search, to prevent the Feds from seeing the Hunter Biden laptop?

There are two more details of interest. First, note that Ablow is equivocating about what building was — is — next to the cottage Hunter occupied when his digital life got picked up. Yes, that building is currently (as far as I understand it) Ablow’s house. It wasn’t then. It was his office (note Tucker’s reference to house or office above, as if he knows this detail).

It’s an open network of people who have descended in my town. I have a cottage next to mine. They’ve made use of that at times. In order to heal!

It’s very private, etcetera. Of course, not so private if you end up going to dinner many times as we did, in our town, and if you’re a person — [my emphasis]

But in the course of offering up what a private place that cottage is, Ablow let it be known that he and Hunter repeatedly were outside the cottage, in public, at which point the rental cottage would be vacant.

He had nothing to do with the compromise of Hunter’s digital life that occurred while he was staying in the cottage next door to his office, Ablow says. But if it was compromised then and there, he had an alibi: he was out to dinner with Hunter!

    “Any doctor in America, if you said, did you ever have to wonder if you could call in prescriptions around the country for pharmacies, would say, I don’t know. I’ve done it. Is that a bad thing, if they fill it?” It is my understanding based on my experience trying to get a prescription when out of town that a doctor can only call in a prescription in the state in which they are practicing, so, no, you can’t call in a prescription anywhere in the country. I couldn’t even get my doctor in L.A. to see me over Zoom when I was in New York.

    • Ithaqua0 says:

      That’s not quite true, because people who travel out of state but accidentally leave, e.g., their antidepressants at home, are heading for big trouble if they can’t get meds locally.


      “Transferring a prescription is a relatively simple and quick process, although it may take up to 3 days to complete. To transfer your prescription, contact the pharmacy you’d like to use, and give them the information of your home pharmacy as well as the prescription(s) you’d like to fill. The pharmacists will take care of the transfer process. In some cases, as with narcotic prescriptions, you’ll need to call your doctor and ask them to fax your prescription to the pharmacy. ”

      Also, if your physician gives you a written prescription, you can have it filled anywhere.

        You can even use an empty prescription bottle to get the process started. It’s even easier with a national chain.

    So are you just saying that Tucky Tuck did two ill advised interviews in a row or is the implication that a Russian (Putin or other) had him to do the Ablow interview to preemptively get ahead of some coming action?

  4. coalesced says:

    Ok. Keith…….there is a bit of a difference between calling a prescription in, and calling multiple prescriptions for controlled substances in for both multiple members of your staff and “select” patients, and requiring them to give you “cut” of the pills dispensed (not to mention having sexual relationships with said staff and patients). The DEA takes notice of the later.

    You know what else the DEA also takes notice of Keith? The testimony of the expert witnesses for the plaintiffs. Jeffrey Lieberman, chairman of the psychiatry department at Columbia University, “Ablow appeared to be using Ketamine in conjunction with talk therapy to gain control over patients. The patients appear to have become very dependent on this medication and dependent on Dr. Ablow to supply it.” As a further inducement, he allegedly offered discounts for the Ketamine infusions and promised to arrange job interviews. When one of the plaintiffs began having trouble affording the ongoing treatments, Ablow advised her to “work as an escort or stripper” because “the work was lucrative.”

    Andrea Celenza, Ph.D of the Boston Psychoanalytic Society, after interviewing the plaintiffs and reviewing medical records states “Ablow’s alleged sexual misconduct mounted to “the most egregious violation” of the American Psychiatric Association’s ethical code.” “His behavior was sadomasochistic, anti-therapeutic, and constitutes a perverse use of his status and power.”

    Per sworn affidavit by Janna McCarthy, who worked for Ablow from May 2014 to July 2015, Ablow would ask her to schedule appointments with attractive women who were “sad, lonely” and struggling with past trauma at times when no else would be in the office.

    Ablow was barred from practicing medicine in Massachusetts where regulators found he posed “an immediate and serious threat to public health.” His New York Medical license is temporarily suspended pending an ongoing investigation.

    • coalesced says:

      Dr. Wheeler!! If you have any spare time….the dockets for the 5 current malpractice cases against Ablow are worth reviewing. I would link if I could but the court’s docket system isn’t cooperating., Essex Superior Court. I’m only just reviewing the first, 1677CV00805 Downing, Roberta vs. Ablow, Keith but oh my lord…..

      12/26/2018: Defendant’s motion to compel production of a labtop loaned to plaintiff, protective order and request for hearing. Ablow loaned the plaintiff a “spare apple labtop that was sitting in the office not being used.” “plaintiff sought return as she realized the labtop contained confidential information not belonging to her.” Ablow requests forensic examiner to image and remove all confidential information previously believed to be deleted and seeks to prevent this information from being used by plaintiff/counsel/witnesses/experts.

      • zscoreUSA says:

        Yess! That is an ironic aspect. As Ablow is texting Hunter to return to treatment in early January, he is dealing with the court order to try to get his own Apple laptop back from the plaintiff, after disagreement if he gave or loaned the laptop to her.

        In fact, the October Friday 2 days before the Mac Isaac laptop connects to Hunter’s Apple ID, Ablow’s and the plaintiff lawyers begin negotiating return of the laptop. Quite ironic.

  5. WilliamOckham says:

    [I am not physician, nor am I licensed prescribe medications in any jurisdiction that is part of the current space-time continuum]

    The situation with respect to getting prescriptions filled out of state is substantially more complicated than folks understand.

    The most important factor is whether or not the prescription is for a “scheduled substance” because that’s when the DEA gets involved.

    Schedule I – Stuff the feds consider illegal. You won’t get those prescriptions filled anywhere, in or out of state, with the one obvious exception of cannabis in states with lenient medical marijuana laws. Although I’m neither a legal nor medical professional, I can confidently advise you that attempting to get an out-of-state marijuana prescription filled is bad idea. Especially if you live in Texas.

    Schedule II – This is the stuff that the feds really wish didn’t have legitimate medical uses. The feds require a written prescription, manually signed by the prescriber, and no refills are allowed. Lisdexamfetamine (Vyvanse) is an example. While it is possible to get a prescription filled across state lines in certain circumstances, don’t count on it. Your doctor can’t “call in a prescription”, although it might seem like she can if your state allows electronic transmission of these prescriptions.

    Schedule III-V – Although these drugs are more tightly restricted than non-scheduled ones, the restrictions aren’t like Schedule II drugs. Ketamine is a Schedule III drug. A physician can call in these prescriptions, even to out of state pharmacists. However, the pharmacist is on the hook to verify that the prescription was

    issued for a legitimate medical purpose by a registered practitioner acting in the usual course of sound professional practice.

    If your physician calls in a prescription for Ketamine to a pharmacy that’s far away from the physician’s practice area and you show up “looking like a junkie”, a pharmacist can and often will refuse to fill that prescription. And “looking like a junkie” often will depend on the time of day, the pharmacist’s biases, and general mood.

    What generally attracts the attention of the DEA and results in the feds showing up unannounced with a search warrant at a doctor’s office is a pattern of prescribing scheduled drugs in excessive quantities or frequently filled at pharmacies nowhere near the doctor’s office. And the DEA has immediate access to a ton of electronic data filed in real time, along with the knowledge that pharmacists have to keep “easily retrievable records” of every single prescription they’ve filled for scheduled substances.

    For non-scheduled medications, there’s a pretty big benefit for most patients that’s due entirely to the existence of the DEA register of authorized prescribers of scheduled drugs. Because every pharmacy has to have access to the DEA registration system, if a pharmacist is asked to fill a prescription based on a phone call from an out of town physician, the pharmacist ask for the physician’s DEA number. That allows the pharmacist to verify that the caller is a physician authorized to prescribe medication. Something that wasn’t that simple before wide-spread access to that electronic database.

    So in general, getting an out of state prescription filled is a lot easier than it used to be. With the caveat that we live in federal system and state laws do vary.

    Like a tale from E. A. Poe,
    Tucker speaks with Keith Ablow,
    (Where’s Hitchcock for a cameo?
    Even he might get vertigo…)

    With grime and slime in their to and fro,
    They relish airtime on a talk show,
    The thrill of the punt, psycho to psycho,
    The ego, the id, and the shadow, shadow.

    Interesting commentary on Ablow taking Hunter to dinner would allow an Ablow associate to know when Hunter would not be home. Combined with the house being next to his (though I’m not sure if it’s literally next to it or just a small walk, I need check).

    And combine that with Ablow saying he never opened or turned on the laptop. Leaving wiggle room that someone else could, who does know how to physically take over the laptop.

    • emptywheel says:

      The office and the cottage abut in the back yards. There’s a house on the corner between them on the outside, but not the non-public side.

      At the time Hunter was there, there was an open walk between the office and cottage.

      • zscoreUSA says:


        I should point out Ablow’s vagueness that he personally didn’t turn on Hunter’s laptop, he doesn’t mention Hunter’s writings and journals left behind. Which wouldn’t take any sophisticated computer tools or knowledge to parse through.

        Curiously, Miranda Devine cites Hunter’s diaries, which I can’t tell what she is referring to, if the diaries were digital files from the Mac Isaac laptop/hard drive or physical diaries from an unexplained source. I don’t see anyone else citing his diaries.

    Here’s my notes from the Tucker/Ablow video, hopefully with useful information

    1) Tucker implies Ablow targeted by DEA (2/13/20) and lawsuits as a deep state conspiracy in retaliation for Hunter, Ablow starts to correct that 2 of the lawsuits preceded Hunter, then leans into Tucker’s angle; says after 2nd lawsuit, Summer 2019, local Salem News covered, which sparked the 2 later lawsuits; doesn’t mention that Birkenfeld told Grassley about the laptop on 2/11/20 or that Kerik was pardoned 5 days after DEA raid, so there’s room for conspiracy theories in the other direction

    2) Says he told Hunter multiple times to pickup the laptop, which, per texts from Marco Polo, is true, Ablow and at least 2 employees reached out to Hunter, Hunter was still at that point planning to drive back to Newburyport to engage in business partnerships with Ablow

    3) Towards beginning, Ablow accurately states DEA returned Hunter’s laptop to him, then he gave to Hunter’s lawyer shortly after. Later in interview at Tucker’s leading, the laptop was handed by DEA directly to Hunter; says the laptop had a sticker on it, not clear what, but sounds like the Mac Isaac story of a BBF sticker on one of the other laptops

    4) Ablow twice says Joe is compromised by foreign govts, doesn’t say which govt or cite reasons; unclear if just regular froth, or based on insight from conversations with Hunter, or information provided to him from a non-public source

    5) Tucker/Ablow imply his gun was taken by DEA, but on 5/28/19 he filed a complaint against Newbury Police Department
    “Petition filed by after application for FID was denied, not renewed, revoked or suspended by the police on .”, requests documents, then asks to dismiss a month after DEA raid
    District Court →Newburyport

    • zscoreUSA says:

      (Hopefully this is helpful, if not please let me know)

      6) Says Hunter ended up there for treatment after a referral, doesn’t say from who

      7) Says didn’t know why DEA was there, they booked a regular appt, then was surprised at raid, which sounds weird on its face; he texted Roger Stone immediately at start of raid

      8) Says never received a “subpoena” about DEA raid, maybe he means a warrant affidavit? He is only allowed to get information if the DEA files a complaint. He should release the paperwork he was provided so public can see

      9) Says at 4 year mark (2/13/24) he was given his devices back by DEA, including his business computers and phones, but implies case is ongoing?

      10) Mentions the pushback he got from conservatives like Ziegler for not putting that laptop out there, buuuuuttttt doesn’t mention the complaints that he [Ablow] tried to monetize that laptop, reportedly involving his brother somehow

      11) Anecdote about a hypothetical patient who wants to be an artist but is forced to go around the globe to pursue corrupt deals to fund a family, obvious reference to Hunter; this is a line Miranda Devine uses

      12) Says he went to court twice, and won both times; once in MA medical tribunal, says he won, but unclear what he’s talking about as his license was suspended and he had a hearing scheduled 4/7/20 but I can’t find information if it went through; the other case he won was a harassment complaint by a male medical assistant, I can’t find info on this; also mentions a restraining order against him, but I can’t find

      13) Doesn’t mention the ongoing lawsuit against him, which just a few days ago had a 6 month extension to continue pre-trial discovery

      14) End of interview is typical rants about paper ballots, transgender people, border security, E Jean Carrol, and praising Trump for being the most truth telling person ever; Trump is the “antidote because he obsesses over the truth”, the Marco Rubio exchange about genitalia size in 2016 was pure genius by Trump

      • zscoreUSA says:

        One more point to add. I re-listened to this part to accurately quote Tucker, weird exchange about sexual dirt in politics

        15) Ablow says after Megyn Kelly pushed back against his anti trans hate, he complained to Ailes. Then complains that Ailes was destroyed over accusations of sexual impropriety. Same with Trump and E Jean Carrol. Tucker then offers a really strange yes-and

        At around 34 minute mark

        Ablow: … Freud would be laughing his butt off … if we ever said “you know the way they take care of people who disagree with the status quo which is about trying to stop sanity? That they accuse them if sexual things.” He’d be like “Welllll yeaaahhh.”… There’s all kind of deep feelings between men and women about sex. If you want to destroy someone, just say that that person is a sexual predator…

        Tucker: Well, I have to say it’s a very noticeable trend, and I haven’t heard anyone else note it, but that people who get crossways with, say, the CIA, seem to have, like, a higher than average likelihood of having kiddie porn, um, found on their computers.

        Ablow: [awkward laugh]
        Tucker: Have you noticed that? [Awkward laugh]

  10. Super Nintendo Chalmers says:

    I HATE Keith Ablow with the heat of 10,000 suns. I used to live in Amesbury, which is across the river from Newburyport. He is a vile excuse for a human being.

  11. PeaceRme says:

    The lack of ethics displayed by Ablow in this interview is stunning. Dr Drew did the same thing to Britney Spears years ago. It’s always been my understanding as a licensed therapist that addictions have federal confidentiality protections beyond regular confidentiality, because the stigma for addiction continues to be insurmountable for some people.

    “The Federal confidentiality law and regulations protect any information about a client if the client has applied for or received any alcohol- or drug abuse-related services—including assessment, diagnosis, detoxification, counseling, group counseling, treatment, and referral for treatment — from a covered program. 3 The restrictions on disclosure apply to any information that would identify the client as a substance abuser, either directly or by implication. The rule applies from the moment the client makes an appointment. It applies to clients who are civilly or involuntarily committed, minors, clients who are mandated into treatment by the criminal justice system, and former clients. Finally, the rule applies whether or not the person making the inquiry already has the information, has other ways of getting it, enjoys official status, is authorized by State law, or comes armed with a subpoena or search warrant. 4”

    This from Appendix B Federal Confidentiality Regulations.

    From the same citing it is stated that the protection around addictions goes beyond basic patient doctor confidentiality.

    I don’t know why it’s not being enforced but Ablow absolutely violated this statute in what he shared. Journalists (besides our already esteemed EW should be making this point clear.)
