The Challenges of Treating Chronic Pain and an Opioid Use Disorder in Medication Assisted Treatment

  • Mark L. Kraus, MD, Connecticut Counseling Centers, Inc., Danbury, CT
  • Joseph G. Conrad, PsyD, Connecticut Counseling Centers, Inc., Danbury, CT


This workshop will provide an in depth look at a patient population that we see in our Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Programs and Primary Care Settings, i.e., those patients who struggle with a primary opioid use disorder and are concomitantly being treated for chronic pain. The workshop content will be focusing on issues inclusive of epidemiology, triage, and intervention in regard to the physician’s and clinician’s role in managing these patients to achieve the best possible therapeutic and medical outcomes. Specific focus will also be given to addressing prescription practices and discussing an “Integrative Model of Care.”
