    Healthcare professionals as well as mental health and addiction treatment providers are on the front line to accurately assess, intervene upon, and develop appropriate treatment plans for the impaired patient with a chronic pain condition. This can become more difficult when prescription drug abuse/addiction is present.

    For years the numbers of people experiencing chronic pain and coexisting psychological disorders including addiction have been increasing significantly. According to research published in Pain Physician Journal (2006), 90 percent of people in the US receiving treatment for pain management are prescribed opiate medication. Of that number 9 percent to 41 percent had opiate abuse/addiction problems.

    Please join Dr. Stephen Grinstead, Developer of the APM™ Treatment System, to learn the skills that are vital to working with these clients, to increase your understanding, empathy, and compassion for this greatly underserved population, as well as to improve your marketability in the treatment industry.
