Medication Use in Recovery – Making Safe Choices


Authors: Marvin D. Seppala, MD, Sue Hoisington, PsyD, LP, and Chris Lind, RN

What medications are safe – and unsafe – for those in recovery?  This informative pamphlet presents guidelines for safe pain treatment, along with a removable chart that clients can take with them when consulting with a physician.

Excerpt from the Introduction:
“The good news is that there are many effective, non-addictive medications that can treat the symptoms of illness, including pain.  Identifying the medications that are safe might sound confusing, but really it’s as simple as reading labels and following some general guidelines.  This pamphlet provides information on how to find a physician who can help protect your recovery and how to be an advocate for your own health care.”
