Chronic pain and substance abuse are common problems. Each entity represents a significant and independent burden to the patients affected by them, the healthcare system caring for them, and society at large supporting them. If the two problems occur together, all of these burdens and their consequences are magnified. Traditional treatments fail a substantial percentage of even the most straightforward cases. Clearly, new approaches are required for the most complex of cases. Success is possible only if multiple disciplines provide integrated care that incorporates all of the principles of substance abuse and chronic pain rehabilitation treatment into one package. While experience provides the foundation for implementing these programs, research that documents the methods behind successful outcomes will be needed to sustain support for them.
