Many pain sufferers often succumb to prescription addiction due to high potency painkillers like OxyContin and Vicodin. The longer they continue to use these prescriptions, the more tolerant their bodies become, until they need an unhealthy amount of the drug to properly function and live life pain-free. Our Pain Services Rehab Program can provide possible solutions to achieve an effective and lasting recovery from pain in a safe, natural, and healthy fashion.

Infographic: A Nation in Pain
This infographic details the massive problem of chronic pain in the US and how it can often lead to painkiller abuse and addiction. Drawing upon research from a variety of sources such as the CDC and the NYU Langone Medical Center, this infographic states that 1 in 3 US adults suffers from chronic pain. It also offers a diverse array of pain management techniques from acupuncture to exercise, biofeedback, and meditation - in addition to the often overused solution of prescription pain medication. According to this infographic, although Americans make up only 4.5% of the world's population, they consume 80% of the world's opioid painkillers. The combination of high levels of chronic pain and painkiller use among Americans illustrates the need for a dual-track approach to treatment for pain and addiction in order help millions break free from a perpetual cycle of chronic pain and substance abuse.
