The APM system is a treatment approach developed by Dr. Stephen F. Grinstead that uses the Gorski-CENAPS® model to integrate the most advanced pain management methods
developed at the nation’s leading pain clinics, with the most effective treatment methods for addictive disorders developed at the nation’s leading chemical dependency treatment programs. The result
is a unique integration of treatment methods that combine proper medication management with non-medical techniques to insure both chronic pain management and addiction treatment. This leads to relief
of pain while lowering or eliminating the risk of addiction or relapse. APM protocols have been field tested in several different treatment settings and have been proven very effective.
The APM treatment system can help people find recovery and avoid relapse. It is possible even for those who need to take appropriately prescribed psychoactive pain medication. Severe chronic pain can cause relapse. Additionally, chemical dependency issues can block effective pain clinic treatment. The difficulty with these modalities is that neither treats both conditions at the same time. This APM home study course will explains the differences between the addictive disorder and the pain disorder and how to implement a synergistic treatment approach—i.e. APM.
