Our core treatment is an interdisciplinary program for individuals with chronic pain, concussions, and other work-related conditions that impair function. Based on a proven biopsychosocial model, the highly structured, interdisciplinary curriculum, typically lasting 20 days, combines the resources of physical therapy, medicine, psychology, and vocational counseling to educate and

assist individuals toward the restoration

of function and productivity.

The same multidisciplinary expertise is also available to be brought together to treat patients with concussions.

These are credited with having saved over 3,300 lives in less than three years. Most recently, the FDA, the Centers of Disease Control (CDC), and various State Boards, including the North Carolina State Board, have all announced strong initiatives aimed at curbing excessive opioid prescribing and creating greater access to addiction management and overdose prevention.

We are following these developments closely and will continue to report on major developments in our newsletters. We are attaching the CDC guidelines as an example of curent efforts.
