12 Step Medication
Management Protocol

Pain Doctor developed the 12 Step Medication Management Protocol to ensure that narcotics are prescribed in a safe, effective manner. The steps in this protocol overlap substantially with the Centers for Disease Control and prevention’s (CDC) recommendations to physicians for prescribing narcotics. It is our goal to reduce narcotic doses by treating a patient’s pain through multiple modalities.

Step 1. Assessment of pain (0-10 scale)

Step 2. Current and updated medication list

Step 3. Review and documentation of patient’s social history, including substance abuse history

Step 4. Review of recent Prescription Drug Monitoring report

Step 5. Physical examination of painful areas

Step 6. Discussion and documentation of risks and benefits of narcotic therapy

Step 7. Established goals of treatment and reviewed goals (e.g., patient wants to have and increased ability to function)

Step 8. Clear documentation of rationale for narcotic use (e.g., chronic lower back pain or degenerative disc disease)

Step 9. Clear documentation of beneficial clinical response to narcotic use (e.g., decreased pain or increase function)

Step 10. Current and consistent urine drug test based upon patient risk stratification

Step 11. Prescribe rescue medication for narcotic overdose to all patients who receive a scripts for controlled substances

Step 12. Patient has signed a Controlled Substance Agreement within last six (6) months

  • Patients were initially on a mean dose of 62 MME

  • Over six months we were able to safely reduce their doses of narcotic medication down to a mean dose of 36 MME

  • 33% of these patients were completely taken off narcotic medications
