Chemical Health Education

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Although the diagnosis of chemical dependency is low in chronic pain patients, the use of many different medications is a concern for most patients and their families. The PRC offers groups on the following topics related to chemical health:

  • Prescription medications and hidden addictions
  • Medical aspects of chemical use
  • Alternative and complementary medicine and chronic pain
  • Pharmacologic interventions

In addition, staff lead group sessions about the PRC philosophy on medications and basic wellness issues.
