Active addiction can take a toll on one's physical body and may cause far-reaching health consequences.

Other factors, such as genetics, work or injury may cause an individual to experience pain that compounds the recovery process.  As part of one's individualized treatment plan, we work with patients to safely introduce physical activities. Massage therapy is also available for individuals with chronic pain issues. 

Pain education counseling focuses on how the interaction of substance use and chronic pain interferes with recovery. Patients learn how to describe their pain to assist the physicians and nurses in providing effective options for managing pain without the use of mood altering medications. Pain education activities help patients develop healthy coping mechanisms and assertiveness skills in order to be successful in recovery.
