    Opioid Crisis to Pain Crises: Shifting the Paradigm of Treatment with Shirley Hilzinger, Family Nurse Practitioner, Intrinsic Coach®, Life-Force Energy Healer

    The United States is currently experiencing what has been deemed an “opioid crisis”. According to the CDC, opioids were involved in 33,091 deaths in 2015, and opioid overdoses have quadrupled since 1999. Statistically significant increases in overdose death rates have been seen in the Midwest states of Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio from 2014 to 2015. In treating opioid addiction, the traditional addiction medicine therapy regimen of methadone maintenance, with its inherent legal limitations and restrictions, has been challenged by an office-based practice with buprenorphine serving as a prominent therapeutic tool. In addition, the root cause of opioid addiction-pain, whether that pain is physical, psychological, or spiritual-must be addressed. A review of office based interventions including pharmaceutical, nutritional and supplement approaches, as well as alternative treatments will be explored.
