At Origins Recovery Center, chronic pain management may be addressed as needed in addition to an individual’s substance use disorder.

Origins treats chronic pain holistically through self-care practice and coping skills including exercise, nutrition and spirituality, and other specialized services.
Chronic pain management is conducted with a multidisciplinary approach that includes:
Alternative therapies may also be designed based on success.
The Origins medical staff oversees each patient’s chronic pain management treatment plan to ensure the patient’s optimum comfort. The ultimate goal of chronic pain management is to enable the patient to embrace and maintain a healthy lifestyle, free of addictive medications.
Living with chronic pain can rob joy from life and so can the medications taken long-term to treat the pain. Opiates such as OxyContin are addictive. With longer use patients must take more of the medication to produce effective results. Sometimes, the pain actually gets worse the longer the opiates are used. Adding alcohol to the mix becomes a deadly cocktail. With professional help, however, it is possible to stop the vicious and dangerous cycle of substance use disorder in relation to chronic pain.
