Medication Management


The pharmacist can help educate the patient about risks and benefits of medication, available treatment alternatives, proper ways to withdraw from medicines and ways to achieve optimal drug therapy.

A comprehensive review of past and current medication use will be conducted and the most appropriate medication therapy reviewed. 

The program's physician, together with the pharmacist, reviews medications on each patient while in the program.

We may institute new medication trials for pain during the program; however, we focus on non-drug approaches to help improve functioning and quality of life and in our discharge report will make specific recommendations regarding the role of medications.
