According to a Thursday video statement by daughter Mikhaila, Jordan Peterson has been checked into rehab for a clonazepam addiction. Mikhaila says Jordan was prescribed the benzodiazepine to help him cope with his wife’s severe health issues.
Jordan “looks like a lost puppy” while they are giving him less potent drugs to wean him off, Mikhaila explains, before warning people to stay away from clonazepam.
His wife’s health outlook is looking better after flying to America to receive first world health care (the family is from Canada), and Mikhaila thinks they “should be all recovered by Christmas I hope.”
“We figured we should let people know before some tabloid finds out and publishes, ‘Jordan Peterson, self-help guru, is on METH’ or something.”
According to Mikhaila, Jordan plans to write about the incident in his upcoming book, which “should make [it] more interesting.”
