Types of Pain Management We Offer
People recovering from an addiction often have a hard time finding pain management services that do not use painkillers. Many painkillers are made with opiates, an addictive substance that is also found in heroin. This is a substance that people in recovery will want to avoid. Thankfully, there are pain management treatments that are completely drug free.
Some of the drug-free pain management services offered at Mount Sinai Wellness Center include:
- Evidence-based CBT developed specifically for patients with substance use disorders and chronic pain
- Physical exercise under professional supervision
- Acupuncture (coming soon)
- Massage therapy
- Aqua therapy
- Chiropractic (coming soon)
Managing Pain During Detox
Withdrawal symptoms can be painful enough that it leads a person to relapse. For some patients, it is safer to wean them off a substance with safe, clinically approved medications that help manage cravings and withdrawal symptoms. These are known as medically supervised medication programs.
Some patients still wish to avoid these medications out of fear of developing an addiction to them. There are still options in these cases. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a clinically proven method of helping patients manage pain without the use of pharmaceuticals. Stress can make pain worse, and learning ways to manage stress and improve your mental health can help you deal with pain. Exercise has also proven to be an effective treatment.
