Comprehensive Pain at UVM Medical Center: A Different Approach
The Comprehensive Pain Program (CPP) is designed to provide participants with a healing environment in which a variety of integrative therapies will be offered. Participants who seek care at CPP have chronic pain lasting three months or longer which affects – or has the potential to affect – one’s mental health, ability to work, family relationships or social relationships. Participants will be referred from Primary Care faculty practices affiliated with the University of Vermont Health Network.
The mission of the Comprehensive Pain Program brings modern medicine and evidence-based complementary and alternative therapies together to encourage participants to optimize their health. We are informed by the latest science in Integrative Healthcare and offer an array of therapies that address the whole person—mind, body, and spirit. Non-judgment, honesty, and authenticity guide us as we empower our participants to discover agency, self-efficacy, and well-being.
In addition to the variety of integrative therapies described below, participants will join one or both of two group offerings: COMPASS Living and PATH.
Referrals to CPP will come from primary care faculty practices within the UVM Health Network. Criteria for acceptance into the program include the following:
