Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

Chronic pain and addiction often go hand in hand. Many patients develop a dependency on opioid medications due to chronic pain conditions. Substance abuse itself may also lead to physical health problems that result in chronic pain.

The addiction medicine experts at Tres Vistas Recovery provide pain management programs for individuals during residential and outpatient recovery programs. These personalized programs help you avoid dangerous and addictive medications while relieving your pain symptoms.

Which conditions can pain management address?

Some of the conditions that pain management plans can address include:

  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Nerve conditions
  • Headaches
  • Digestive disorders
  • Post-operative pain


If you suffer from chronic pain, and you have a substance use disorder, you may feel anxiety about experiencing pain during your recovery program.

Pain management can alleviate both your pain and your distress and promote successful long-term recovery from addiction. It can also address co-occurring conditions such as depression, anxiety, and insomnia.

What does pain management involve?

The compassionate physicians at Tres Vistas Recovery design customized pain management plans to meet your individual needs. Patients with opioid addiction may benefit from buprenorphine.

This medication has a similar effect on the body as opioids, but you don’t get high when you take buprenorphine. Medications containing buprenorphine include Subutex®, Suboxone®, and Sublocade®.

Used to reduce withdrawal symptoms, buprenorphine also has some of the pain-relieving effects as opioid medications. Tres Vistas Recovery has helped many patients remain pain-free during detox and recovery by using buprenorphine in conjunction with counseling.

To assist with pain management, your provider may recommend other types of medication and alternative therapies, such as physical therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, and nutrition plans, to relieve pain and improve overall health and well-being.

Am I a candidate for pain management?

If you suffer from ongoing pain, a personalized pain management program can help. Tres Vistas Recovery can address many chronic pain conditions.

Some conditions, however, such as systemic illness, may require the care of a specialist. In most cases, Tres Vistas Recovery can work with your specialist to ensure you receive the care you need while in treatment for addiction.
