Chronic & Acute Pain Management Services
Management of acute or chronic pain in patients with substance abuse and dependence is very challenging. It requires expertise in both pain management and addiction medicine. In most cases neither the patient’s primary care physician nor surgeon has the expertise to deal with their pain effectively and prevent relapse to drug use at the same time.
At Preston, we provide the expertise to meet the needs of our patients who are dealing with pain.
We provide consultation in pain management to patients who are currently in treatment for substance abuse, in recovery or remission, and are contemplating surgery, after surgery or for acute pain due to injury.
