W.I.S.H. Pain Management Program
Wellness, Integrity & Sustainable Health
WISH is an integrated medical and behavioral health program designed to treat chronic pain effectively and compassionately, predominantly through the use of non-opioid interventions. Our goal is to increase patient quality of life. We believe a holistic approach to the management of pain will allow for improved function and the reduction of debilitating symptoms. The effective treatment of chronic pain demands a system of care that understands patients as individuals.
- Our aim is your overall wellness – Understanding the source of the patient’s pain and its impact on all facets of their life is critical to addressing the issue of chronic pain.
- In a healing setting your integrity is our focus. Our treatment coordinators work with our patients and their primary care physicians to determine and structure a program specifically tailored to their pain management needs.
- We believe sustainable health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease.
