We’re highlighting our first podcast series for new listeners! This episode was originally published on Apr 25, 2022.

Is this episode we talk about how people can get addicted to pain medication and why they don’t often work in the long run. We discuss how many addictions start with pain medication, pain management, or sports medicine; and how addiction fulfills something that is missing for many people. You will also learn about the power of Acceptance Commitment Therapy and the internal struggle people can have with pain. Part of this approach is about how to accept and live with pain and even live our best life with a certain level of pain. We will also discuss the stages of recovery, fear of withdrawal, and some of the latest recovery developments in Medication-Assisted treatment and therapeutic techniques.
