|Valley Forge Medical Center and Hospital - Addiction - Free Pain Management - Montgomery; Norristown||A program developed specifically for those patients suffering from co-occurring issues of chronic pain and substance abuse and/or addiction.
Pain and Addition Program:
Addiction to pain medication is a common diagnosis and focus of treatment at Valley Forge Medical Center and Hospital. Physical pain, if not well managed, often acts as a primary trigger for addictive processes. The interdependence of pain management and addiction requires a high level of medical expertise to generate consistently successful outcomes. Forge Medical Center and Hospital utilizes various proven therapeutic modalities, including the Addiction-Free Pain Management® System, to target the causes of pain. Thus, the patient receives the most comprehensive treatment available. Treatment seeks to use the fewest medications possible, and abstinence is always preferred. If medication is required, non-addictive medications with fewer side effects are considered first. Occasionally, opiates may be indicated for effective pain management, and if needed, an effective individualized medication management plan is developed.||Montgomery||Valley Forge Medical Center and Hospital, Inc. - Montgomery; Norristown||Valley Forge Medical Center and Hospital |
