Controlled Substances Policy

A note on opioids and pain management: currently science does not support long term use of opioids for management of chronic pain (with the exception of terminal cancer and a few other examples), and I will not prescribe or refill these kinds of medications. I understand pain as the body’s way of getting our attention, to let us know something is out of sorts. In fact, not listening will often grow the message louder (think: more pain or additional symptoms). Becoming good listeners to our internal wisdom is part of creating healthier selves, and I am here to help you hone those skills. If you have another prescriber who will refill opioids, we can still work together on your health goals, which may include finding the source of the pain and restoring the imbalance.
