Beyond Opiates

Subject: 
Addiction
Minutes Long: 
33 min.

This video presents a fresh new perspective on the science of pain and how it influences recovery from opioid dependency including fentanyl. The content focuses on a new paradigm for understanding chronic pain showing how the extended use of prescription painkillers increases the sensitivity of nerve cells thereby magnifying pain (hyperalgesia, hyperpathia, alodynia). Interviews with recovering addicts and treatment professionals illustrate the challenges opiate addiction creates and presents a message of hope and encouragement for clients to examine recovery in light of this new view of treating dependency and pain.
