Trainees will learn to provide an acupuncture-based, therapeutic option to medication for the treatment of pain, and/or to provide “therapeutic support” for those who are actively taking long- or short-term opioids, where risks, including possible addiction, outweigh the benefits, and desire to taper off of them under medical supervision.

  • An overview of the Opioid Epidemic – Understanding the epidemic and the disease process
  • Challenges in Treating the Opioid Epidemic
  • Trauma as a Result of the Epidemic
  • Mechanisms of Pain
  • Pharmacological Management of Pain
