For many people struggling with addiction, their addiction began as a way to manage chronic pain. Chronic pain can be the result of an injury, surgery, or illness. In an effort to medicate themselves, people turn to drugs or alcohol. When an addiction develops and the individual seeks treatment, it’s important to find healthy and effective methods of pain management.
In many cases, the patient’s discomfort continues as they recover from addiction. Pain Management at our facility is a collaborative process between the client and our treatment professionals to successfully manage discomfort and prevent relapse. This includes treatment with non-addictive medications and mental wellness strategies that help the client become less fixated on their pain and move forward with other aspects of their lives.
