Alternative Pain-Management Therapies Offer Proven, Safe Pain Relief.

Opioids have been the frontline treatment of choice for chronic pain, contributing to the current opioid epidemic. You play a vital role in helping to change the addiction statistics. Suggest alternative therapies first — such as acupuncture, yoga, and massage. Use the brochure and fact sheets featured here to educate your patients about safe, proven alternative modalities that have fewer risks. Download the materials and distribute them to patients when having conversations about pain management, so that they may be aware of safer, more effective ways to relieve chronic pain.

Comparing opioid and non-opioid therapies, a randomized clinical trial conducted between 2015 and 2016 that included 240 patients from VA clinics found that pain intensity was significantly lower in the non-opioid group.

Sessions are available in all the Delaware hospitals and at federally qualified health centers.

  • Workshops are held for six weeks, in small groups.
  • Locations are accessible for those with access and functional needs.
  • Sessions are highly interactive and led by professionals.
