The landscape of chronic pain treatment is changing rapidly as we wean ourselves off the traditional biomedical approach that emphasizes harmful opioid-based pain management approaches. In this presentation, you will learn the unique challenges and obstacles that face patients suffering from chronic pain and coexisting disorders, including medication misuse abuse, or addiction. By understanding these unique challenges, you will discover that it requires an integrated concurrent team approach to achieve successful treatment outcomes.
Join chronic pain management international expert, Dr. Stephen F. Grinstead, for this dynamic interactive webinar. You will obtain the proper understanding, skills, and treatment techniques you need to address the neurobiological psychological/emotional, social, and Spiritual aspects of chronic pain when potentially addictive medications are no longer a viable option. You will learn about Dr. Grinstead’s evidence-based Addiction-Free Pain Management® Manualized Treatment System.
By attending you will discover how common coexisting disorders and family dynamics can sabotage treatment – and what to do about it. You will learn how to develop a synergistic treatment plan incorporating the mind, body, and spirit for healing as well as strategies to empower clients to be proactive in their healing process. This course also draws from the 2018 American Society of Addiction Medicine Handbook: Pain and Addiction – including Dr. Grinstead’s Chapter: Self-directed Non-Pharmacological Management of Chronic Pain. By the end of the presentation, you will have new confidence in helping people and their families suffering from chronic pain and coexisting disorders including addiction.
