Chronic Pain Disorder & Addiction

Content Overview: Chronic pain disorder is a mental illness commonly associated with substance abuse. Learn more about the signs of chronic pain disorder, and how South Coast Counseling can help.

Chronic pain that is experienced in one or more areas, believed to be the result of psychological stress, is known as pain disorder. Unfortunately, the pain is often so severe that the patient becomes disabled from functioning properly. Duration could be a few short days or it could last several years. While treatment does exist for pain disorder, the prognosis is worse if the pain is in multiple areas.

The psychosocial history also covers the family history in regards to disorders and worries in regards to illnesses, stress and negative life events and family functioning issues.
