What we do?

HEALTHY WAYS is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering people with chronic pain to improve their quality of life, decrease their sense of isolation and take a more active role in their treatment.
We do this by providing support groups, specialized classes, a speaker series on treatment modalities, training and supervision of mental health professionals on chronic pain, a newsletter on chronic pain issues, information and referrals, and community outreach and education

Support groups

HEALTHY WAYS provides a forum for people handicapped by pain, isolated and alienated by pain, frustrated by lack of services dealing with the emotional aspect of physical pain, and demoralized by changes in careers, families, and society.

Different modalities are used in the support group such as: developing coping skills, decision making models, role-playing, assertiveness training, guided imagery, meditation, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques.

Family members, significant others and interested community members are welcome to attend and participate in the support group.

Pain Warrior Support

The Pain Warriors program helps to retrain, support, educate and teach coping skills to Warriors and Veterans with chronic pain. Families and significant others are encouraged to attend and participate.

Goals of the Pain Warrior Program:

 

  • Improve your quality of life
  • Decrease your sense of isolation
