A notice to our patients regarding our opioid policy.

Innovative Pain and Wellness believes in multidisciplinary approaches to treating patients. Opioid medications are considered in this approach but may not always be appropriate. There has been a marked increase in the numbers of prescription drug addiction, overdose and even death over the past decade. Innovative Pain and Wellness strives to practice prescribing opioid medications in a responsible manner. We utilize random urine drug testing, proper medical record review and are registered with the Arizona Prescription Monitoring Program to ensure that opioid medications are utilized in the appropriate situation. This ensures the safety of our patients to the best of our ability. We approach each patient as an individual as each circumstance is different.
