We know that pain is experienced in the brain, and stress can make the experience of pain worse or more difficult to handle. A treatment that helps you cope with pain and stress can make your pain more manageable. There are a number of strategies patients can use to improve their pain and ability to cope with pain. The WVU Medicine Center for Integrative Pain Management offers both individual and group therapy to our patients, along with managing high-risk chronic opioid use patients.

Therapy services are performed by Rick Gross, PhD, Lynn Dobbs, LICSW, Martha Ferris, LICSW, and Whitney Myers, MSW, LGSW.

High-risk patients are managed by Dr. Gross, Jeremy Herschler, MD, Stephanie Smith, FNP, and Martha Ferris, LICSW.
