Research indicates that every year nearly six million
Americans use prescription opioid pain medication, and
in some communities, abuse of prescription pain
medication has overtaken cocaine and marijuana use.
The 2002 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse
(NHSDA) showed that approximately 9% of the U.S.
Population has used pain relievers illegally in their
lifetime. An estimated 4.6 million Americans used
prescription type pain medications non-medically for the
first time in 1998. This represents a significant increase
since the 1980's, when there were generally fewer than
500,000 new users per year.
Today, approximately 75% of our patients suffer from a
dependency on pain medications, whereas in years past
dependencies to heroin were the most common. We
recognize that all patients who are physically dependent
on and psychologically addicted to prescription pain
medication are a result of a many imbalances that require
expert medical treatment in a safe, humane and effective
environment, encapsulated in confidentiality.

ABOUT NEW HOPE
We are an outpatient behavioral healthcare clinic that
specializes in partnering with health care professionals to
manage the very difficult and delicate task of withdrawing their
opiate dependent patients.
This is challenging, but rewarding work, and it enables you to
distinguish between legitimate pain and induced pain
associated with Withdrawal Syndrome.
Generally, patients with legitimate pain are prescribed pain
medication. Often times, managing these patients long term
can be taxing and risky when the provider begins to feel as
though the patient is drug-seeking. Ethically, it can be difficult to refuse to continue care…..but what option do providers have?
