A History of Addiction: An Audience with Dr Carl Erik Fisher
As a psychiatrist-in-training fresh from medical school, Carl Erik Fisher came face to face with his own addiction crisis, one that nearly cost him everything. Now an addiction physician, bioethicist and author of The Urge: our history of addiction, he has sought to make sense of topics like self-control, suffering, and behavioral change across an unexpected variety of topics and fields.

The Urgent Need for a New Approach to Alcohol Treatment
With alcohol-induced deaths at a 10-year high in Australia, and alcohol accounting for 4.5% of the country's total disease burden there is a pressing need for more effective and immediate treatment. As GPs, you're at the front lines, with no MBS items to support extended, multidisciplinary care for alcohol dependent clients - we understand the challenges you face.
Clean Slate Clinic: Bridging The Gap
We're here to help you provide gold standard care for alcohol dependence, whilst respecting and supporting your role as the core care provider. Our virtual care program offers integrated assessment, medicated withdrawal, and recovery, from the comfort of the client’s home.
Why This Matters to You as a GP
No Extra Burden
You don't need to free up appointment slots to try to manage safe home detoxes within your practice, with daily check-ins and pre and post-detox reviews - we do all of this.
We will keep you informed at every step of your patient's journey with us, and provide you with tailored recommendations for your client for ongoing team care and/or mental health support.
You Bill MBS
Once a patient is safely withdrawn from alcohol, our discharge summary provides the information you need to prepare and bill a GP Management Plan and/or Mental Health Care Plan.
Don't just take our word for it...
This model of service delivery is highly adoptable and acceptable. Results from this study indicate that the Clean Slate Clinic is a feasible model for enabling participants to achieve their goals, substantially reducing alcohol intake and reducing psychological distress
Evaluation of the Clean Slate Clinic by Sydney University
Over 300 individuals across every State & Territory in Australia have already benefited from our service, experiencing low rates of relapse and high levels of satisfaction
Affordable and Effective
We offer limited publicly funded spots in Western New South Wales, Western Queensland and Northern Sydney. Clients with Bupa Gold insurance are also eligible for a fully funded placement. Otherwise we are a very affordable private service at $320 per month - a win-win for you and your patients.
Our program is suitable for patients aged 18+ with alcohol dependence. The only absolute exclusion criteria is a history of withdrawal seizures. If you are unsure of whether your client is suitable, contact us and one of our doctors would be happy to discuss this with you.
