American Academy of Neurology takes Firm Stand Against Opioid Pain Medication

A recent report by the American Academy of Neurology declared that opiates are essentially a poor choice by physicians wishing to manage chronic pain conditions of their patients. The report detailed the risk for dependence, even in cases where the opiates appear to be providing relief. We agree that full agonist opiates like Vicodin and OxyContin are generally not sustainable solutions in the treatment of chronic pain.

Absent from the report is the emerging use of Buprenorphine in the front-line treatment of chronic pain and the drug’s efficacy to transition patient’s away from more harmful opiates. At Recovery Without Walls we have carefully used Buprenorphine and other innovations in the treatment for chronic pain for many years.

If you, a friend or a family member are suffering from chronic pain or chemical dependency, please do not hesitate to contact us.
