Behavioral Services

Behavioral Services are individual and group treatments that address an individual's potential for active living as well as their educational needs regarding chronic pain management. Treatment options include our 4 week multi-disciplinary program, CHALLENGE, for individuals recovering from work-related injuries that have developed chronic pain syndrome. Additional services that our treatment team may recommend include:

  • Individual / Family Medical Counseling
  • Pain Management / Education Groups
  • Medication Management Classes
  • Individual / Family Medical Counseling
  • Biofeedback Therapy
  • Evaluation and Assessment for
    Drug Abuse-related Issues
  • Spinal Cord Stimulator
    and Intrathecal Pump Procedures
  • Vocational Interest Assessment/
    Goal Development


When circumstances are such that the individual is unable to return to their previous employment or occupation, financial uncertainty (also associated with anxiety and depression) may further exacerbate stress and pain. Evaluating vocational interests often brings forth past accomplishments and/or prospective transferrable skills to enhance development of new vocational goals. The career assessment inventory is a useful tool for beginning this exploration which also incorporates the patient's aptitudes and residual functional capacities. This process typically transpires over a 4-6 week interval and can be readily incorporated with other program services in a comprehensive rehabilitation effort.
