Pain Management Contracts

Final Thoughts

Pain contracts are not legally binding. If you don't understand or agree with the terms of a contract, discuss this with your healthcare provider to come to a mutual agreement on the contract and your pain control treatment. There are several other types of medications besides opioids that are used for pain. Opioids are just one option and, though they are used frequently, may not be the best option for you, depending on the type of pain you are having, your lifestyle, and other medications you are taking.
 
Opioids can reduce or eliminate pain, but considering their side effects and the potential for abuse, they should be used at the lowest dose needed for pain control and carefully monitored both by the individual taking opioids and the healthcare provider(s) treating the pain.
