An authoritative guide to pain control and pain medications for people in recovery.

People in recovery from addiction who also suffer from pain face a special challenge: Can they use today’s most effective pain medications without triggering relapse? Here, two leading experts in addictive diseases and pain medication examine issues related to pain control and addiction, including types of pain and pain medication; non-pharmacological, physical treatments for pain; and psychological approaches to dealing with pain. This is an essential guidebook for recovering people, caregivers, and medical professionals who need timely and trustworthy information in order to make safe decisions about pain control. Special features include easy-to-use charts classifying over-the-counter drugs as safe or unsafe for recovering people, case histories of individuals in recovery who successfully managed pain without risking relapse, and the latest facts about often-abused prescription drugs such as OxyContin and Vicadin.

The doctors who wrote this make great points about non-pharmaceutical pain management, and encourage patients to take responsibility for themselves. The downsides for me included exclusive reference to 12-Step recovery but I have come to expect that from the publisher Hazelden. That shows a bias that is not in many patients' best interests nor is their position supported by research. The other shocker was their claim made in 2005 that opioids are hardly ever addictive for folks without a history of other addiction. Many of us who were not under the sway of Big Pharm's handouts to physicians knew this for BS long ago. The book does not live up to the title because they espouse a limited role for opioids even in addicts. I am sure this makes medical sense in some cases. They also are clear that pain management is not pain elimination, so the book is neitehr about being free of pain nor drugs. I like the presentation of and support for Complementary Alternative Medicine and the effort to empower patients to ask what they can do for themselves with their doctor's help rather than be a passive popper of pills. A better literature review would have improved this book, as would a more eclectic understanding of recovery.

Very easy to read and understand. Many examples cited of people with pain problems.

Although the targeted readers were people in recovery, I thought the safety tips for how to avoid abusing an opioid prescription and the different treatment options for pain management were valuable for anyone, especially for those dealing with chronic pain. The book emphasized taking responsibility for one's own treatment plan and the importance of working with one's physicians. I especially liked how the book discussed different viewpoints on medication use by people in recovery. One interesting thing I learned is that pain is as unique as a fingerprint. The same wound in two different people does not equate to the same type or level of pain.
