Dr. Grinstead’s Formula for Success in Chronic Pain Management

People living with chronic pain and coexisting disorders, including addiction, have many obstacles that often make helping them very challenging. Many of these people have tremendous amounts of grief and loss as well as other problems that lower their quality of life. Some of the other major roadblocks are the patients’ high levels of denial and resistance to treatment. Please watch my Video Blog Below and then read the remainder of my post.

Dr. Grinstead Training Advocate Addiction Treatment Staff In Relapse Prevention

The past two days I’ve been conducting an intensive relapse prevention skills training for selected staff at Advocate Addiction Treatment Program. On day one I introduced the concept of starting recovery with relapse prevention and starting relapse prevention with denial management. The staff were very excited and we broke into discussion groups frequently throughout the two days to brainstorm how this new information could be integrated into their current treatment program.

Understanding People Suffering With Chronic Pain And Coexisting Disorders

This past year I’ve been helping several agencies implement my Addiction-Free Pain Management® System into their programing. The past several years have led to more and more people understanding that the prescription pain medication problem is really spiraling out of control.

Valley Forge Medical Center - Addiction-Free Pain Management® Center of Excellence

This past week I’ve been in Norristown Pennsylvania at the Valley Forge Medical Center’s (VFMC) Addiction-Free Pain Management® Center of Excellence program. At VFMC they help people living with chronic pain who were very frustrated when they weren’t receiving the pain relief they want and deserve and unfortunately many turned to continuously increasing doses of pain medications. Unfortunately these people often used the wrong type or too much medication and sometimes it worked but more often it made the problem worse in the long run.
