The tapering program at CC4PM is designed to help patients understand why tapering off high-dose opioid medication will actually improve the patient’s plan of care and reduce pain long term without the risk for addiction. This is a two-session program, each session approximately one hour long. In the first session, our LPCC will explain facts about opioids and the reasons it is beneficial to taper off the medications. The second session will focus on learning different coping strategies and providing patients with the resources to support them through the tapering process.
