Robert Gordon BELL, Physician: 1911-2005
Pioneering doctor who almost didn't make it through medical school turned a chance involvement with alcoholics into a life's calling to treat all manner of addictions
By Stephen STRAUSS, Special to The Globe and Mail, Thursday, June 30, 2005, Page S11
Toronto -- After word got out that Robert Gordon BELL, known to those who knew him as Gordon, had died at 93, an e-mail was sent to his family from a former patient. In it, the feelings of not just the writer but the tens of thousands of people whom Dr. BELL and his treatment had helped escape from addiction was summarized in a mental health koan.
"I learned from him that, yes, I was an alcoholic, but to be an alcoholic didn't mean I was a bad person," the man wrote.
It is something that the Ontario farmer's son, who turned a happenstance involvement with Toronto alcoholics in the 1940s into a life's calling to treat addictions of all sorts, would undoubtedly have relished. His personal motto, and one that he repeated daily to patients, was "it has been a privilege to have been of service."
What wasn't said, but implied, were the added words "when others find it such a privilege not to serve you."
The social context in which the ever-courtly Dr. BELL helped revolutionize the treatment of addiction in not just Canada but around the world was a medical disdain bordering on repulsion.
"He was a courageous pioneer, because he took on an area of medicine almost nobody at the time wanted to deal with," said Frank EVANS, long-time colleague and secretary of the Canadian Society of Addiction Medicine. "Doctors were both revolted and disgusted at a problem which they saw as self-inflicted. In what he did, Dr. BELL was almost the addiction equivalent of Father Damien, who provided an understanding and haven for lepers on the Hawaiian Island of Molokai."
Dr. BELL would later write that part of his sympathy for an addict's personal failures came from his own difficulties in becoming a doctor in the first place.
Born into a Scots Presbyterian family in the Southern Ontario town of Saint Mary's, Dr. BELL was inspired by his industrious Uncle Charlie -- a doctor who once held the North American record for the number of babies delivered in a year -- to go into medicine. But he was an indifferent student, and he failed medical school after his third year at the University of Toronto. While working in a smelting plant, he experienced what he would later call a transcendental release from fear of failure while watching the sun rise over Lake Erie. "I lost my fear of not being able to succeed, and I acquired a sense of direction in personal fulfilment," he would write in an 1989 autobiography.
He might have become self-assured, but he also had to struggle mightily to convince the University of Toronto to readmit him after a dean bluntly informed him: "Can you not appreciate that you have neither the intelligence nor the emotional stability to graduate in medicine and succeed as a physician." In a way, that set the tone for his subsequent dealing with authority -- he refused to leave until a second opinion was obtained from someone who saw the good doctor lurking within the previous failure.
Dr. BELL's first entree into social-psychiatric medicine came during the Second World War when he worked in the Canadian Army with soldiers traumatized by their war experience. Having found this interesting, and sure that his lack of an obstetrics background would doom him in general practice, he opened up a clinic in his home for -- in his words -- the "emotionally disabled."
At the time, he assured his wife, who already had given birth to two of his five children, that "the worst we could expect would be three or four nervous old ladies as guests. I had no idea at the time our only patients would be alcoholics." Not only that, but among them would be one who returned to the house after going on a bend with the express purpose of beating Dr. BELL to a pulp.
Reflecting a Canada in which alcoholics were viewed as the bane of a medical practice, Dr. BELL quickly found that there was almost nothing in the medical literature describing how you dealt with people who drank too much. Out of the personality jumble of the patients who came to him -- business successes, failures, the violent, the passive, the neat, the messy -- grew the notion that, to treat addiction, you had to treat the whole person in a caring community. A singularly important feature of this, and one that went against the thinking of the time, was that an alcoholic was an alcoholic for life and there was no possibility of going back to social drinking.
To this was grafted what were, for the time, revolutionary alcoholism drug treatments, most notably Antabuse, a medication that made anyone sick who drank alcohol afterward. To ensure they would truly be of service to their patients, Dr. BELL and another physician first tried the substance on themselves. The result was a near overdose wherein Dr. BELL's blood pressure and pulse rate fell to almost zero and he came close to dying. Later, he and a fellow doctor would invent and again self-test Temposil, an anti-drinking drug with fewer side effects. They also came up with a body-weight scale that allowed you to estimate how much you could drink without getting drunk.
Dr. BELL's interest in addiction -- he had soon learned that many of his alcoholic patients were addicted to barbiturates and other drugs -- led him to found a number of clinics and hospitals in the Toronto area. The establishment of these facilities was viewed by the authorities of the day with considerable suspicion. Indeed, so wary was the Ontario Medical Association of his activities that it secretly sent a couple of doctors to check out his clinic. In the words of one of the investigators, the Ontario Medical Association suspected that Dr. BELL was "some kind of medical racketeer out to make a fortune by sobering up wealthy drunks."
Making money would have surprised both his bank managers and his family. "He always paid himself last," said Ron BELL, one of his sons.
Soon, Bell clinics in their various incarnations were seen as the best places in North America for people to have a chance at least to stop being alcoholics. And rich Americans, notably Henry Clay Ford, grand_son of Henry Ford, and Harvey Firestone Jr., of the Firestone tire family, soon arrived for treatment. They both ended up sitting on the board and contributing money toward the operation of the Donwood Institute, the first public hospital in North America specifically designed to treat addictions.
Of particular pride to Dr. BELL was the more than half-a-million dollars contributed by former patients -- the "hopeless characters," according to those who turned them away -- to the Donwood. The success in Canada spurred the development of similar institutions in the United States, one of which treated Betty Ford, the wife of former U.S. president Gerald Ford. It became the template for the Betty Ford Center in California.
But life's accomplishments don't always capture the character of a man. Dr. BELL was, say those who knew him, someone who transcended his background. The child of the old Protestant Ontario embraced in his practice the multiplicity of the multiculturalism of its present. "He was very ecumenical," said University of Toronto professor Harold KALANT, who had known him since medical school.
As an example, Toby LEVINSON, a psychologist who worked with him since the 1960s, reported the reaction of a native woman when Dr. BELL took his family on a tour of the Donwood. "Dr. BELL was here with his family; he came right over and talked to me. Can you imagine Dr. BELL talking to a drunken Indian?" she asked in amazement.
His final accomplishment may have been the incorporation of his children in his vision of a caring community for addicts. Both his daughter Janice and his daughter Linda ended up working at Bellwood Health Services, a residential centre he helped found to treat not only drug and alcohol addictions but also gambling, sexual manias and eating disorders.
In the end, Gordon BELL's life finished in a full circle. He was buried in the graveyard of the church in Saint Mary's where he had worshipped as a child, and where his childhood minister had emphasized the need for lifelong learning. What killed him was a heart attack, which he diagnosed to a caregiver even as he was dying. "A good clinician to the last," said Ron BELL.
Robert Gordon BELL was born in Saint Mary's, Ontario, on November 11, 1911. He died of a heart attack in Toronto on June 15, 2005. He was 93. He is survived by daughters Janice HAMBLE, Linda BELL and Mary BELL- PLOUFFE and by sons Ronald and Brian. His wife, Mary, died in January of 1994.
