Opioids are medications that relieve pain for those who suffer from chronic pain, or pain that lasts longer than three months. They are one of the most commonly prescribed pain medications; however, they are highly addictive, and research is now showing that long-term use may not be beneficial, and can even be harmful to patients.
Our comprehensive program works to reduce the number of patients who are prescribed opioids, educate those currently taking them about the risks, phase out the use for those willing to try other pain treatment options, and increase monitoring of patients taking opioids to reduce abuse.
Our COAT program will help patients in Houston and surrounding areas, who have a history of chronic opioid utilization by reducing their current dosage, managing chronic pain and improving their level of function.
