Effective Chronic Pain Management Using Phone/Cyber Coaching

Many people living with chronic pain with coexisting psychological disorders including addiction, are unwilling or unable to go into a structured treatment program. Sometimes this is due to not having quality programs in their immediate area. Other times it can be due to the financial commitment some of these inpatient or residential programs require. While for others it is not wanting to be stigmatized or pathologized (sick, bad etc.). This is where phone or cyber coaching can fit in.

Addiction-Free Pain Management® (APM)
Coaching Program

The purpose of APM™ Relapse Prevention Coaching is to guide people who are living with chronic pain and may be struggling with pain medication issues to become active participants in their healing process. They will learn a strategic set of new pain management protocols that will help them to recover their health and regain their independence, thereby improving the quality of their life. Most importantly, participants will discover a light at the end of the long dark tunnel their life of pain has become.

With the assistance and the support of a Certified Coach, clients will experience the seven clinical processes that help them to quickly identify and manage high-risk situations that cause relapse. They will receive expert guidance in setting powerful recovery goals and implementing specific actions plans to facilitate their continued recovery.

The foundation of our Relapse Prevention Coaching Program is the evidence-based work and 40 years experience of Terence T. Gorski's Developmental Model of Recovery. As an Advanced Relapse Prevention Specialist and Director of Training and Consultation for the CENAPS® Corporation, my expertise in denial, relapse prevention and co-existing disorders underlie his biopsychosocial, multidisciplinary approach utilizing an ongoing continuum of care that incorporates strategic, cognitive-behavioral skill building exercises in conjunction with powerful solution-focused and strength-based coaching methodologies.

If people knew they could participate from anywhere using their phone and/or a computer, and that they could become active participants in their healing by participating in our coaching program, we feel confident that their feelings of helplessness and hopelessness would disappear.
