In 1996, building upon my clinical experience and research, I conceptualized the Addiction Pain Syndrome™. Click here to hear an overview. At this time I also began collaborating with Terence T. Gorski and the Gorski-CENAPS® Corporation to develop the Addiction-Free Pain Management® System. Listen to a brief overview of the APM™ System here.
The Addiction-Free Pain Management® trainings are specifically designed to teach healthcare providers to deliver effective treatment to their patients who suffer from chronic pain and coexisting disorders including prescription drug abuse or prescription drug addiction. Any of the APM™ or CENAPS® trainings can be packaged as a 1 hour Keynote presentation with a brief topic overview; a 3-4 hour conference workshop that covers the topic a little more in-depth; and a 1 day skill training that includes lecture, demonstration, and experiential role-play exercises.
In addition to the above formats, some of the APM™ and CENAPS® trainings can be presented as a Competency Certification format where participants receive advanced clinical skills training. Dr. Grinstead can also customize presentations to meet the needs of your agency. To see the descriptions and training objectives just click on the titles below.
On our Publications Page you can see the books and modules Dr. Grinstead has developed in order to help both clinicians and their patients who live with complex chronic pain conditions to develop effective chronic pain management plans.
Please check out Dr. Grinstead's book Managing Pain and Coexisting Disorders: Using the Addiction-Free Pain Management® System, that explains the Addiction-Free Pain Management® synergistic treatment system for managing
chronic pain and coexisting psychological disorders including addiction effectively. To purchase this book please Click Here.
