Share the Pain Program

Share the Pain is a free ongoing education and support session led by a doctor/ behavioral health team. The program’s goal is to help those with chronic pain to take control of their chronic pain in a non-judgmental environment. Participants learn about self-management techniques to reduce chronic pain and meeting others who also live with pain that persists.
